Ducati finished 2018 with the highest number of safety recalls and starts 2019 with recalls for the Monster 821 (above), Monster 1200 and SuperSport.
We announced that these two Ducati recalls were coming last year. However, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has only now posted the official notice.
Their notice says there is “a potential problem with the gear shift lever due to an error in the manufacturing process”.
“The interference fit between the lever tip pin and the gear shift lever may not perform, in rare cases, may cause the pin to come out, increasing the risk of a crash,” the notice says.
“This may cause serious injury to riders and other road users.”
Ducati Australia will contact owners to notify them of the recall and request them to contact their nearest authorised Ducati dealer to arrange an appointment.
We publish these notices in case owners have sold the bike privately and Ducati Australia is unaware of the current owners.
Authorised Ducati dealers will inspect the gear shift lever and if necessary, the component will be replaced free of charge.

Ducati had the most recalls of any manufacturer in 2018 with six, four of which were for the Panigale V4 in its first year of production.
Even though manufacturers and importers contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.
If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
