Desmosedici RR owners will be happy to hear that their GP replica bikes are being recalled yet again. This time at fault is the spacing between the tail-guard and exhaust system. Because of their close proximity, the tail-guard could possibly overheat, and become a fire hazard.
Ducati will notify the 386 owners this recall affects, and dealers will repair the motorcycles free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin in October 2009. Owners may contact Ducati toll-free at 1-800-231-6696.
Ducati’s recall campaign number is RCL-09-007. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
