11V253000 Steering Ducati North America 04/21/2011 1051
Defect Summary
Ducati is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 Multistrada 1200, and model year 2011, Diavel motorcycles. The electronic steering lock may fail to disengage during the motorcycle “key-on” process. This has been linked directly to a certain revision of the hands free device software. It could result in a situation where the motorcycle’s engine might start while the steering lock is still engaged. A rider could start the motorcycle and attempt to ride away while the steering is still locked.
Consequence Summary
The rider could experience the inability to steer increasing the risk of low speed tip-over or collision, thus increasing the potential for injury to the rider.
Corrective Summary
The dealer will update the software of the hands free control unit free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during May 2011. Owners may contact Ducati at 1-800-231-6696.
