Ducati Recalls 2010 Multistrada 1200S Due to Faulty ECU

The North American division of Ducati recently announced it has decided to recall some 1,196 Multistrada 1200S motorcycles manufactured in 2010 due to potential fuel system malfunctions (Electronic Control Unit 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
