A teething issue for a new model, Ducati North America is recalling a total of 869 units of its Multistrada 1200 & Multistrada 1200 S motorcycles for the 2015 and 2016 model years.
The bikes in question were built between December 1, 2014 and June 11, 2015, and have a kickstand that may break because of an incorrect length on the kickstand support tube.
Since a motorcycle falling over is a safety hazard, Ducati North America has filed a recall with the NHTSA, which will begin on November 16, 2015.
Ducati North America will contact affected owners, and Ducati dealers will replace the kickstand support tubes, if necessary, free of charge.
Concerned Multistrada 1200 owners may contact Ducati at 1-800-231-6696, and reference recall number RCL-15-003.
As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
