  • Category: Recalls

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—May 8, 2012.

Summary: Ducati is recalling certain model year 2012 848, Streetfighter, Hypermotard, Multistrada, and Monster motorcycles. The friction material may detach from the backing plate of the rear brake pads.

Consequence: if the friction material detaches, there would be a sudden loss of rear brake efficiency, increasing the stopping distance and increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace, as necessary, the rear brake pads free of charge. Ducati has not yet provided the agency with an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners may contact Ducati at 1-800-231-6696 or go to their website at  

Notes:  Ducati’s Safety Recall number is RCL-12-003. Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or go to
