V-twin superbike recalled over potentially dangerous rear sprocket
The importers wish to trace: 2007-2008 1098, 1098S, and 1098 Tricolore motorcycles over a fear that the rear drive sprocket could fail.
According to some reports stateside: '...if the sprocket were to fail while the motorcycle is being driven, it is possible that the motorcycle will experience a sudden loss of power and/or the chain may become entangled with the chassis.'
Ducati dealers will replace the rear drive sprocket free of charge.
I found a bit more detail on this recall at eRecalled:
They also have other motorcycle related recalls released this past week:
