Ducati is issuing a worldwide recall on 2016-17 Multistrada 1200 Enduro models over an issue with the Sachs shock breaking.
The official notice through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has now been released.
Ducati says the Sachs semi-active lower rear shock absorber end eyelet may crack and possibly detach from the swingarm.
The official notice says: “An intensive off-road use of the motorcycle could result in a breakage of the lower eyelet of the rear shock absorber, causing the rear shock to become loose from its mounting point.”
Obviously, that could lead to a crash.
“To prevent possible breakage, the lower eyelet of the rear shock absorber was redesigned to make it more robust. The new part number of the rear shock absorber with modified eyelet is 36521464A,” Ducati says.
Ducati is expected to contact owners to arrange for an inspection and free replacement from their dealers.
This follows the recall in 2015 on the 2015 and 2016 Multistrada 1200 and 1200 S models over a sidestand fault that could cause it to fall over.
