Ducati North America has issued a recall involving certain model year 2016-2017 XDiavel motorcycles due to potentially loose fastening screws.
In affected bikes, the side stand plate lower fastening screw on the affected motorcycles may not be sufficiently tightened, causing the stand to fail and the bike to fall. Additionally, during normal use on the road, the loosening of the lower screw could cause damager to the side stand sensor switch, causing the engine to stall. If the lower stand place screw becomes loose it can cause the bike to fall, or the engine to stall, increasing the risk of injury or a crash.
Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will replace the side stand pivot and side stand plate fastening screw, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 7, 2016.
