Ducati Panigale V4 recalled, but not in India

Written by Parichay Malvankar

Ducati has issued a recall for the Panigale V4 superbike in International markets. Nealy 700 units of this flagship superbike are subject to this recall, and there happens to be some problem with the fuel system of the motorcycle. Currently, the motorcycle is being recalled in the American market, and Indian dealers report that the bikes being sold in India are not subject to this recall.

In the fueling system, there might be a fuel leak because of the O-ring being damaged during fitment at the production line. The breathing system valve plug might this have a fuel leak. Also, the fuel tank cap is reportedly spraying gas when it is opened, which is another reason for this recall. But this is also related to the fuel system breathing.

The O-ring will be replaced on all motorcycles which have a faulty piece. This task will be completed free of cost and customers are being currently contacted.

The Panigale V4 from Ducati is a radical superbike. With power-to-weight ration of 1.1 HP / kg, the engine helps deliver an experience like no other Ducati does. The 4-cylinder motor on the Ducati Panigale V4 produces 214 HP of power and 123.56 Nm of torque which makes it the most powerful superbike in the segment.
