Hmmmm, I just bought my 2012 M796 a few days ago. I wonder if the bike I bought is affected by this recall. Maybe I can find out if my model is affect with the vin number? Thoughts anyone?

Quite noble of Ducati.

I can't recall having anything issued from the Company on the expanding plastic tanks of the Streetfighter / S*R / Sport Classic & GT.

Must be the new management.
