SUMMARY: Ducati North America (Ducati) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 XDiavel motorcycles manufactured July 7, 2015, to June 22, 2016. 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.

CONSEQUENCE: 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.

REMEDY: 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. Owners may contact Ducati customer service at 1-800-231-6696. Ducati’s number for this recall is RCL-16-003(B).
