Ducati Recalls 2010 Multistrada 1200S Due to Faulty ECU
Specifically, Ducati says the Multistrada 1200 S could stall during downshifting or when the clutch is disengaged while the engine is at idle. The direct consequence of such a problem is that engine stalling could increase the risk of a crash.
The 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200 four-bikes-in-one model is available in the US in four different variations, with the base model priced at $14,995. The next in line is the Ducati Multistrada 1200 ABS version, priced at $16,495, which means the ABS system will cost you some extra $1,500.
Next, we have the Ducati Multistrada 1200 Sport that will only take $19,995 out of your pocket. The “S” model features higher performance suspension, thanks to the fully-adjustable Ohlins fork and the shock replacing the stock units. The extra $5,000 go for the carbon fiber air intakes and other parts, as well as the Bosch-Brembo ABS system. And last, but not least, also priced at $19,995 is the Ducati Multistrada 1200 Touring
The safety recall is expected to begin during January 2011. Just as expected, dealers will "re-flash" the ECU free of charge. Owners may contact Ducati at 1-800-231-6696. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.gov.
