I also just got the notice and have the heated grips. Did they at least offer to buy back the heated grips which would now be useless?

Why do we buy these little princess bikes?! A comparable Japanese bike would be so much less of a headache...
Hahaha because they're beautiful and amazing to ride in their element.

YOU have a princess. I have a black bitch and I have to hone out her cylinders every now and then, if you know what I mean. I treat her right, she treats me right.

Okay, I'm getting excited.

My problem with the bike is it's been raining here everyday for like the past 3 months! Sucks!

HUUWHAAATTT?

We have 1 engine failure (which is probably just a sensor issue) on the boards; maybe a dozen with the limp mode issue (which clears with a quick reboot); half that in disco mode (again, stray trons); couple dozen squeaky breaks (most likely stuck bobbins); sticky bag locks (solved with lube).

All of these trending issues were solved by Ducati via warranty service. Now they issue a recall for a known faulty part. What did GM do about those bad ignition units...oh, right. People died because they gambled with a recall. Judge a maker by his reluctance to fix.

Last check was almost 1500 members. I'm not doing the math for you. And Japanese?! So, bought a new Acura back in 2006. I couldn't get them to fix a TPMS sensor with less than 5K miles. Oh, before that my Honda Pilot transmission detonated at 70K, with plenty of shared platform evidence. Corporate said "not our problem".

You really want Takata over Bosch?

Well if you don't like it then get rid of it. Nobody is forcing you. But do consider...

I've tried a couple Japanese bikes so far and darn are they boring. That is a no go for me. They feel and look atrociously dull. Something I also hear on regular base myself. They also have the share of problems. Maybe not has many bud darn are they boring.

But minus the glitches, what do you hear peoples saying about Ducati? 'Wow!' 'Great looking bike man' 'At last not an HD'. Or even better yet; 'It's not an HD but damn it look awesome'.

Yes our bike suffer from recalls and break downs but look at it this way. Mine as stacked up 43,700km on the odometer in less than 12 active months. That is a rather busy bike no? And boy did I had fun driving these 43,700 km.

Ducatis are certainly not the cheapest out there but I had the chance to compare and test drive the 'fun driving level' between similar priced bike of several brand and nothing came close to the Hyperstrada. Heck even the Multistrada 2015 is desapointing.

I was being facetious. My last 4 bikes have all been Duc's and I am looking for yet another, to sit beside this beautiful tramp.

Like any supermodel girlfriend, they are a pain in the ass sometimes.

Could you please clarify some things? Might save us all some trips to the dealer.

Do you know exactly what are they replacing with the recall? Is it the throttle grip itself? Just the electronics within the throttle grip assembly?

Did they mention anything about Ducati issuing newer heated grips that will work with the "fix"? Or if these will these also be recalled?

Bottom line. If you have heated grips, do not bother going in for this recall. It will not work.

The parts included the throttle spring, magnets and other parts inside the throttle assembly. I think it even included the metal housing. Not sure if it was a complete assembly or not as I didn't see it, but it did not sound that way from what my mechanic said.

My mechanic tried to transfer all the new parts into the heated grip throttle assembly, and could not make it work without throwing a code. The bike did start/rev as normal though.

he said that they likely had not thought out the heated grip issue, but expects they will eventually. We can only wait for that eventuality.

Thanks! I'll wait to see what's up. So far I have no issues but I am at like 750 total miles on my 2013, just bought it "new".
