Ducati is recalling 925 model year 2016 XDiavel S motorcycles due to a wheel installation problem.

The affected motorcycles have a rear wheel that may have been incorrectly installed on the hub. If the rear wheel was incorrectly installed, the drive pins may fail, resulting in a loss of braking and of power transmission from the engine. These conditions increase the risk of a crash.

Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will remove the rear wheel and install rubber inserts to prevent the wheel from being improperly installed. Any wheel that is found to have been improperly installed will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin on July 18, 2016.

Owners with questions may contact Ducati customer service at (800) 231-6696.
