Ducati North America is recalling 72 model year 2018 Ducati Panigale V4, Panigale 959, Panigale 1299 FE, and Hypermotard motorcycles.
The friction material on the rear brake pads may detach from the backing plate.
This may lengthen the distance needed to stop the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the rear brake pads. Brake pads from the affected batch will be replaced, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin September 15, 2018.
Owners may contact Ducati customer service at 1-888-391-5446.
