Ducati Australia has issued an urgent recall on several models over an issue with the rear rake pads coming loose.
NF Importers issued the voluntary recall through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission for the Ducati Hypermotard 939, 959 Panigale, 1299 Panigale, 1299 Panigale Final Edition and Panigale V4.
The official notice says the brake pad may separate from the backing plate.
“If the brake pad separates from the backing plate, this can cause a failure of the rear brake,” it says.
Owners are be sent letters requesting them to contact their closest Ducati dealer or service agent “as soon as possible” to make an appointment for an inspection/update of the rear brake pads.
It has not been a good year for Ducati with product safety recalls.
