Ducati North America (Ducati) is recalling certain 2015-2021 Monster 821, 2014-2021 Monster 1200 S/STD, and 2016-2019 Monster 1200 R motorcycles. The rear brake hose may be susceptible to heat damage, which can allow air into the hydraulic braking system causing an unexpected loss of braking power and increasing stopping distance drastically.
Dealers will replace the brake hose, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed June 23, 2021. Owners may contact Ducati customer service at 1-888-391-5446.
Owners may contact management at CycleVIN with any questions or concerns regarding this, or any other recall. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
Brake Hose May Have Heat Damage. A damaged brake hose may cause the rear brakes to fail, as any air in the closed hydraulic braking system can cause an immediate loss of braking power and capability, increasing the risk of a crash.
