Ducati recalls all 2021 Ducati Scrambler 800 Night Shift motorcycles. Front and rear turn signals do not meet US Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS).
According to Ducati, due to an error in the nomenclature of this motorcycle model, the motorcycles were assembled with incorrect front and rear turn signals. As a result, the turn signals do not meet the “effective projected luminous lens area requirements” of FMVSS No. 108. A total of two hundred and twenty motorcycles exhibit this defect.

Defective turn signals may not allow traffic to notice the front and rear turn signal indications. Therefore, it could lead to an increased risk of accident and injury or death.

The recall will be posted to dealers through the Ducati dealer network using the established communication process.
