THE RECALL: Ducati North America (Ducati) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 XDiavel motorcycles manufactured from July 7, 2015, to June 22, 2016. The sidestand plate lower fastening screw on the affected motorcycles may not be sufficiently tightened, causing the stand to fail and the bike to fall. Additionally, during normal use on the road, the loosening of the lower screw could cause damage to the side stand sensor switch, causing the engine to stall.

WHAT COULD HAPPEN: If the lower stand plate screw becomes loose it can cause the bike to fall, or the engine to stall, increasing the risk of injury or a crash.

THE FIX: Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will replace the side stand pivot and side stand plate fastening screw, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 7, 2016. Owners may contact Ducati customer service at 1-800-231-6696. Ducati's number for this recall is RCL-16-003(B).
