ON THE HEELS OF three earlier Panigale 1199 recalls, Ducati has issued two additional fixes for the model, all affecting about 2,400 units for the 2012-13 model years, the NHTSA announced. Both recalls affect models made between March 16 through July 12, the agency said.

Recall No. 12V402000 affects the front braking system. The front brake master cylinder reservoir hose might interfere with the threading end of the reservoir retaining screw. This could damage the hose, which could lead to a front brake system failure. Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will install a cap nut and a washer at the end of the reservoir retaining screw, free of charge.

Recall No. 12V401000 cites right and left swingarm shaft pivots that can loosen from the swingarm, which could lead to the rider’s loss of control. Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will tighten the right and left swingarm shaft pivots to the proper torque settings, free of charge.  

Ducati’s recall number for the above fixes and the three previous recalls is RCL-12-006, the NHTSA reported.

Other recalls issued by Ducati since May:
