Following a similar announcement by Ducati North America, Ducati UK has also issued a product recall for its 2012 1199 Panigale.

A total of 618 bikes are believed to be included within the manufacture dates which may exhibit three different problems with the machine. Ducati have stated that they will shortly be writing to owners affected directly and remedying the problem free of charge. Authorised Ducati dealerships will be looking to make good:-

The exhaust butterfly valve Bowden cable cover could melt or burn due to excess heat of the catalytic convertor.

Screws that secure the steering damper to the steering head could fall out due to an insufficient amount of Loctite applied to the threads.

Due to an incorrect assembly tolerance, the Uniball bearing on the damper rod eyelet could slip out of its seat on the Ohlins steering damper.

Ducati Panigale 1199 owners who are concerned should contact their local Ducati Authorised dealership who have all the information necessary to arrange a full repair of any issues under warranty.
