Hard times in the UK?

Is that 618 bikes sold or 618 bikes imported including those still in stock ? because that seems to be a lot of high priced bikes sold in 8 months.

Surely better to fix under a recall than have bikes breakdown. Most motor manufacturers issue recalls these days. Did you see how many Toyota did last year and no one thinks their cars are unreliable. I'm sure Audi did their due diligence before parting with millions and Ducati despite its perceived unreliable image is still one of the strongest brands in the world.

No surprise to me!

I have a friend who bought a brand new Monster 1100 a few months ago and was well pleased with it. Saw him again the other day and now he is selling it. Apparently whilst riding at around 30mph (and upright fortunately!) the bike just locked up on him and he skidded to a halt. It went back to the dealers who stripped it and couldn't find anything wrong with it, so now he has no confidence in it and wants shut as soon as possible. I don't know anyone who has had a Ducati and not had trouble with it at some time or other.

Its a brand new model, re-designed from the ground up.. Theres gunna be issue's. They've created one of the most advanced v-twins ever combined with an electronics package that makes the rest of the litre jap machines look outdated.3 recalls isnt horrific considering it basically consists of replacing/re routing a bowden cable then installing new steering damper with plenty of loctite. Compare this to BMW's cock up with the connecting rods becoming loose in their S1000RR. I know which bike id rather be on when there particular fault materialised. Ducati's come a long way and often the people most critical of then have never owned one... i clocked up 8,000 trouble free miles on a monster 696 in under a year without any incident, only changed bikes in search for more power.

It's a brand new model, and the recall is mainly for a  safety point of view rather than a major mechanical failing. The Italian manufacturers still have an image problem re reliability which is unfair these days.( No I don't own a Ducati (but may do) I have an Aprilia which has been totally reliable in the 6 years and 60,000 miles I've done on it.

Talking to a dealer recently about reliability of bikes, he stated that newer BMW's have been the most troublesome (many components sourced from China) of all the makes they deal with.
