The affected markets are North America, New Zealand, and the UK, and the reason to recall the newly launched Ducati XDiavel S is the incorrectly installed hub.

The Italian motorcycle maker Ducati is recalling it newly launched XDiavel S cruiser motorcycle in North America, New Zealand and the UK. As per the manufacturer, the hub of the motorcycle has been installed incorrectly which can result in the drive pins failure. Due to this, owners can suffer from a loss of power from the engine and the brakes, and I guess we don't have to tell what can happen after that.

Ducati has announced the recall officially and is notifying its customers to visit service centres to fix the above-mentioned problem. The company isn't charging any money for the repair, so we would like to suggest XDiavel S customers to reach their nearest Ducati service centres as soon as possible.  

Ducati has also started bookings for the XDiavel S in India with a sticker price tag of Rs 19.2 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai) and deliveries are expected to commence in August this year. Powering the aggressively styled cruiser motorcycle is a 1,262cc, liquid-cooled, L-twin with DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing). Mated to a 6-speed transmission, the motor makes 158PS and delivers a peak torque of 129Nm. It is the first Ducati to feature a final belt drive and comes packed with features like keyless ignition, riding modes with Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit, Bosch cornering ABS, Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Ducati Power Launch (DPL), cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and backlit handlebar switches.
