Dear Ducati Owner,

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the U.S. National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act & Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Ducati Motor Holding S.P.A. has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in Model Year 2017 and 2018 SuperSport and SuperSport S motorcycles. Our records indicate that you are the owner of a Ducati motorcycle affected by this safety recall campaign.

What is wrong?

Ducati's ongoing quality testing combined with customer feedback have pointed out a potential problem of visibility with the rear-view mirrors installed on the above-indicated model. Under certain conditions, due to a combination of vehicle speed and engine RPM, vibration can result in unclear visibility of the reflected image in the mirrors.

 

What will Ducati do?

An official Ducati dealer will remove and replace the existing mirrors with the new mirrors. The Dealer will perform this repair at no cost to you for parts and labor. We request that you contact your authorized Ducati dealer and schedule an appointment, so that the required service can be performed without delay. The repair should take approximately 30 minutes. Additional time may be required depending on dealer scheduling.

 

NOTE

Remedy parts to conduct the mirror replacement will become available in February of 2019. A second mailing will be sent at that time, notifying you of parts availability. Upon receipt of the second notice you should contact your dealer to make an appointment for the update. Ducati is making every effort to minimize this delay.

To locate your nearest authorized Ducati dealer, please go to www.ducati.com, and select the "dealer locator" or you may call toll free from the U.S. 1-888-391-5446.

Federal regulations require that any lessor receiving this recall notice must forward a copy of this notice to the lessee within ten days.
