Diavel recall

diavel_recallFaulty license plate to be replaced

Ducati is recalling 964 units of its Ducati Diavel motorcycle for a faulty license plate holder mount.


Affecting Diavels manufactured between September 23, 2010 and May 12, 2011, this recall concerns the brass inserts that are installed in the chain guard, which may deform over time, and result in the possible loosening of the license plate holder retaining screws on the swingarm.
Because of this defect, the license plate holder could come loose and interfere with the rear wheel rotation, which could cause a crash.
Ducati dealers will replace the chain guard free of charge with an updated version that has been manufactured with steel inserts instead of brass ones.
