Ducati is recalling certain model year 2012 Panigale motorcycles
Ducati is recalling certain model year 2012 Panigale motorcycles because of an incorrect screw used to retain the swingarm to the rear suspension linkage. If the linkage detaches from the swingarm, catastrophic suspension collapse would occur and adversely affect the ability to safely handle the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash. Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace, as necessary, the incorrect screw 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 www.ducati.com. Ducati’s safety recall number is rcl-12-004. 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 http://www.safercar.gov.
