Ducati North America is recalling 1,549 model year 2009 1198, 1198S, 1098R, 848 and model year 2010 F1098 Streetfighter and Streetfighter S motorcycles, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
These motorcycles could have fuel leakage from the fuel line at the fuel injector connection, the report said. The plastic fitting between fuel injector and hose can warp or break, which could result in a potential hazard to the rider and possible damage to the motorcycle, stated the report.
Any damage to the fuel line might lead to an increased risk of fire or an unexpected loss of engine performance, which could result in a crash, according to the report.
