Well, I think I said something like “road variation”. I went back over the road and I think it was a man hole cover with about a one inch drop.

If you can’t make a reliable product you should at least stand behind the product you make. Ducati dealers have yet to learn this. It’s no wonder they can’t seem to stay in business. I’m glad you named the dealer. Hopefully any one in their area will steer clear.

?

"hitting something" as in over-extending a too short brake hose? sounds like a oem defect if so.

The caliper hose shouldn’t overextend should it? Wouldn’t it just move up and down with the front tire and lower forks? Maybe it somehow got caught on the tire? I don’t remember exactly what it looks like from the factory. Is there anything between it and the tire?

Maybe when the fork seals were changed the hose were not routed properly, looking at a 2012 in the shop there should be no way something grabbed it if they were routed properly.
