PhotoDucati North America is recalling 793 model year 2019-2020 Hypermotard 950 and 950 SP motorcycles.

The negative terminal on the battery may break, potentially causing a sudden loss of power and an engine stall, which can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the routing of the negative cable, rerouting it as necessary. In addition, the battery will be better secured with insulation pads. These repairs will be performed free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin December 12, 2019.

Owners may contact Ducati customer service at (888) 391-5446. Ducati’s number for this recall is SRV-RCL-19-003.
