What's the Problem?
This recall affects Ducati Multistrada V4 S motorcycles from model year 2021, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
"Excessive wear of the valve guides may cause the valve head to break," NHTSA said. "A broken valve head may decrease the acceleration and performance of the engine, increasing the risk of crash."
Ducati is notifying owners and dealers will replace the entire motorcycle engine with another engine, free of charge.
