Ducati Australia has recalled the 2017 1299 Superleggera motorcycles over an issue with the front brake pad material may separate from the brake pad.
The official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says if the issue occurs, there is “an increased risk of an accident and/or injury to the rider and other road users”.
Owners will be notified in writing to contact their closest Ducati dealer or service agent and arrange an appointment to replace the front brake pad, free of charge.
Consumers who are unsure whether they are affected can also check their VIN by clicking here. Only 32 bikes are affected.
For further information, consumers can contact an authorised Ducati dealer or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
In Australia, recall notices are issued by the manufacturer and the Department of Infrastructure through a voluntary industry code under the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
While any recall is not good news for the manufacturer, it shows that they are largely diligent in fixing problems.
If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
