If you own a Ducati Supersport, a new pair of mirrors could be coming your way.
Ducati North America recently announced a recall affecting some 2017-2019 units for vibrations that distort objects in the rearview mirrors.
As RideApart points out, this isn’t your average recall.
Motorcycle manufacturers generally issue recalls on parts or production issues that put the rider’s safety at serious risk or lead to deadly malfunctions. For example, some 2017-2018 Supersport models were also recalled earlier this year for bad hose routing that could cause the bike to spontaneously burst into flames.
There’s a chance the vibrating mirrors and distorted visibility could increase your risk of a crash, but most motorcycle riders can agree that these issues are pretty common. While the recall isn’t exactly urgent, it’s probably worth the effort to cash in on a free pair of mirrors – especially if yours have suffered a little wear and tear.
Owners will be notified if their Supersport is affected by the recall, and dealers will replace the mirrors at no charge. The recall is expected to begin in early January. Ducati hasn’t offered any details about why the vibrations on the recalled mirrors caused the reported distortion or how the replacement mirrors will fix the issue.
Owners can contact Ducati customer service with any questions or concerns at 1-888-391-5446.
