Ducati is recalling approximately 1,300 Monster 821 and Monster 1200 model motorcycles.  The problem stems from a potential heat-damaged rear brake hose.  According to Ducati’s recall notice, the rear brake hose is susceptible to damage from the heat emanating from the bike’s exhaust manifold.  Obviously, if the rear brake hose line fails, the rear brake could suddenly fail, increasing the risk of a crash or injury/death.

The motorcycles subject to this recall include:
