Ducati recalls some 2012 motorcycles for brake problem

Publish Date:

Ducati is recalling certain 2012 motorcycles because the friction material may detach from the backing plate of the rear brake pads.

The potential number of units affected 283 and include the following models:
• 848 EVO
• Hypermotard 796
• Monster 1100 EVO
• Monster 796
• Multistrada 1200 ABS and
• Streetfighter 848

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.

Ducati will be notifying owners, and dealers will inspect and replace, as necessary, the rear brake pads for free.
