The Ducati Supersport is being recalled because their mirrors may vibrate too much, affecting their usability. The recall affects 1,676 motorcycles, including both the base model and the Supersport S version, from model years 2017 to 2019.

According to recall documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, certain frequencies created by a combination of vehicle and engine speeds as well as gear position, may cause the mirrors to vibrate enough to distort visibility of the reflection.

The problem was first identified in September 2018 as a result of ongoing testing by Ducati North America. The North American branch alerted the parent company which decided to initiate a recall on Nov. 8.

Ducati dealers will install redesigned mirrors on recalled Supersports. The new mirrors add a reinforcement plate behind the mirror (pictured in green below) that should reduce vibration. Unfortunately, the new parts are not expected to arrive until February.
