[] - 2018 Ducati Panigales and Hypermotard Affected by Brembo Recall

Brembo is currently going through it second significant recall of the year, this time affecting rear brake pads. This follows a recall in January for front radial master cylinders.

As with the earlier recall, the new brake pad recall affects parts installed as stock equipment on brand new motorcycles from a number of manufacturers, in addition to pads sold as part of aftermarket kits.

The first OEM to confirm a related recall with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is Ducati, affecting the 2018 Panigale V4, 959 Panigale, 1299 Panigale FE and Hypermotard. The recall affects 72 units in the U.S.

According to the recall documentation released by NHTSA, the friction material (i.e. the part that contacts the rotors) may not stick properly to the backing plates. As a result, the friction material may separate from the plate, resulting in a drop in rear brake efficiency and increase in stopping distance.

The faulty pads all stem from a single batch, identified as batch #672, manufactured by one of Brembo’s suppliers, Federal Mogul Italy S.r.l. According to the recall documentation, the pads were subjected to a second thermal treatment that exposed them to higher temperatures than intended. The higher temperatures reduced the strength of the bond between the backing plate and friction material.

Ducati dealers will inspect the rear brake pads on affected motorcycles to see if they are marked as being from batch 672. If they are, then the dealer will replace the pads.

We expect other manufacturers to announce their own related recalls in the weeks ahead.
