Ducati North America is recalling 5,962 units of the adventure-sport machine, all because the inner sleeve of the opening throttle cable may move and prevent the full closing of the throttle.
A particularly dangerous potential event, if the throttle can’t be fully closed, there is risk that the rider could lose control of the motorcycle and possibly crash.
To remedy the situation, Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will replace the upper throttle cover with one that prevents the inner throttle sleeve from moving — free of charge, of course. This recall is set to start May 11th, 2015.
Concerned owners may contact Ducati customer service at 1-800-231-6696, and reference recall number: RCL-15-001. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
