A structural defect is prompting a recall from one motorcycle manufacturer.

Ducati North America is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Multistrada 1200 and 1200 S motorcycles. In the affected vehicles, the side-stand may break, due to an incorrect length of the side-stand support tube. If the side-stand breaks, the motorcycle would fall over, increasing the risk of injury to the rider and/or the passenger.

The manufacturer is recalling about 875 motorcycles in connection with this defect.

Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will replace the side-stand support tubes, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 16, 2015.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact Ducati customer service at (800) 231-6696.
