Ducati North America is recalling 168 model year 2014 1199 Superleggera motorcycles manufactured April 8, 2014, through November 13, 2014.
The damper plate assembled between the primary driven gear and the clutch basket assembly could break due to fatigue, and result in the engine seizing, and therefore, the rear wheel locking up.
A rear wheel lock up may cause a loss of control and increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will install a new clutch assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 18, 2016.
Owners may contact Ducati customer service at 1-800-231-6696. Ducati's number for this recall is SRV-RCL-16-002.
