Australia has joined a global recall on 2018 Ducati Multistrada S models over an issue with the side stand breaking due to an “improper manufacturing process”.

The official notice, issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the bike may fall when parked, “increasing the risk of injury to the rider and passenger, or bystanders”.

Importers NF Imports will notify owners in writing to contact their closest Ducati dealer or service agent and arrange an appointment for the side stand to be replaced, free of charge.

For further information, consumers can contact an authorised Ducati dealer or email
