Ducati recalls 199 and 1299 Panigale over oil leaks
Ducati Australia has recalled 183 1199 and 1299 Panigale models over a potential oil leak problem.
The official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the engine oil breather system may operate incorrectly “possibly resulting in an oil leak from the air intake breather tube”.
“Oil may leak from the air intake on to the engine and tyres, increasing the risk of an accident and injury to the passenger(s) and other road users.”
(Not sure why the official notice thinks you would have more than one passenger!)
Owners will be sent a letter requesting them to contact their closest Ducati dealer or service agent “as soon as possible” to make an appointment for a free inspection.
The vehicle identification numbers of affected bikes are listed at the end of this article.
This is the third recall notice for Ducati this year and the first for the Panigale 1199 or 1299 since 2015.
