Ducati recalls Panigale V4 for fifth time

2019 Ducati range PANIGALE V4 R

Ducati has now recalled a variant of the Panigale V4 for the fifth time with four recalls in its first year of production.

On this occasion, it’s for a fuel leak in the 2018-19 Panigale V4 range and the 2019 Panigale V4 R, totalling 445 motorcycles in Australia.

Australian owners of the affected bikes will be sent a letter requesting them to contact their closest Ducati dealer or service agent “as soon as possible”.

Owners will be asked to make an appointment for an update of the motorcycle’s fuel tank ventilation system.

They will also receive a sticker with warning/instructions on how to correctly open the fuel cap.

Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) of all affected bikes are listed at the end of this article or click here.

Fifth recall notice

It is the fifth official notice has issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

The notice says the fuel tank ventilation system “may be defective and cause pressure to build in the tank, resulting in fuel potentially spraying out of the tank when the fuel cap is opened”.

“If fuel sprays from the tank, this poses a fire and injury risk to the user and their surroundings,” .

Last year, the Panigale V4 was recalled for another fuel leak issue after a Canadian rider’s V4 caught fire.

More V4 variants

Ducati recently announced it would produce a Streetfighter V4 version.

A prototype Streetfighter V4 was last month entered in the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb in Colorado.

Sadly, four-time winner Carlin Dunne crashed on the final corner and died.

There have also been rumours that a Multistrada V4 version is coming.

At the weekend, Ducati announced it will also produce a limited edition of 500 Panigale V4 25° Anniversario 916 motorbikes to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the legendary 916.

Even though manufacturers and importers contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.

Therefore, Motorbike Writer publishes all motorcycle recalls as a service to all riders.

One thought on “Ducati recalls Panigale V4 for fifth time

  1. Made in Italy. = more style than substance
    Made in Germany = more substance than style
    Made in Japan = a good amount of both
    Made in America…well let’s not go there.
