Transport Canada initiated a recall campaign earlier this week because of a problem with the electronic steering lock on some 2011 Ducati Diavel and 2010-2011 Ducati Multistrada 1200 models. Documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveal details about the problem.
Dcuati’s product testing determined a bug in software revision 43 of the hands free device software, under “very specific conditions”, may cause the electronic steering lock to remain engaged during the “key-on” process. Authorized Ducati dealers will update the hands free control unit to software revision 44.
The U.S. recall campaign affects 155 MY2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200 models, another 594 MY2011 Multistradas and 302 MY2011 Ducati Diavels.
