Any more official info, guys? certain batch numbers, countries, etc.?

odi.nhtsa has nothing, though, it doesn't help that "Hyperstrada" isn't even listed as a 2013 model...

From the dealer….

….."Hi, David,
There is a Ducati Technical Service Bulletin TSB-14-001 for your Hyperstrada to install a protective rubber cap on top of the steering head. We have the parts in stock to perform this Warranty update. There is no cost to you."…..

Can't tell from looking at mine if its ok or not. Looks like there is a seal but can still See a gap. Here's a picture of mine, can someone please compare to their own that have had a recall notice. Thanks

I have taken the image of the steering head of my new Hyper and there is a rubber seal. It's a Thai assembled model.

Just had a look at mine - no seal. Looks like the Aussie delivered bikes will need a recall also.
