Ducati UK has issued a recall for its 2012 1199 Panigale. The notice, which will affect 618 units, states three different problems with the machine.

Ducati will be contacting the owners affected by the recall by letter and remedying the problem free of charge at authorised dealerships.

The recalls are for:

The exhaust butterfly valve Bowden cable cover could melt or burn due to excess heat of the catalytic convertor.

Screws that secure the steering damper to the steering head could fall out due to an insufficient amount of Loctite applied to the threads.

Due to an incorrect assembly tolerance, the Uniball bearing on the damper rod eyelet could slip out of its seat on the Ohlins steering damper.
