Ducati has issued a recall for their latest flagship motorcycles – the Ducati Panigale V4, Panigale V4 S and the Panigale V4R. The recall has been issued due to issues related to faulty fuel system in these motorcycles.

There are two issues for which the recall has been made. The first one is that the breathing system valve plug might end up leaking if the O-ring was damaged during the production of the Panigale and the second, is the faulty fuel tank cap. The cap is unable to breathe properly in some specific weather conditions. Factors like temperature, amount of fuel in the tank, motorcycle usage and external temperatures could result in the fuel being leaked out when the fuel tank cap is opened.
