Ducati Supersport Recalled for Buzzy Mirrors

There is a joke in here somewhere about sport bike mirrors being useless, but here we are, reporting that the Ducati Supersport is being recalled because vibrations from the motorcycle might distort the rider’s viewing of objects in the rear-view mirrors.

It is certainly not on the same level as the last recall for the Supersport, but Ducati North America says that the vibrations occur at certain speeds and rpms, and Ducati Motor Holding has changed its mirror design because of customer feedback on the mirrors.

The recall affects all the model years of the Supersport (2017-2019), produced before October 2018, which includes 1,676 units in the United States.

To remedy the issue, Ducati will notify affected owners, and Ducati dealers will replace the mirrors with new mirrors, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 7, 2019.

Concerned owners may contact Ducati customer service at 1-888-391-5446. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and
