Just a few days back it was announced by Yamaha, that the Japanese manufacturer's latest iteration of the iconic YZF-R1 in the guise of the 2015 YZF-R1 and the YZF-R1M have been recalled after Öhlins declared that its TTX36 rear shocks may be build improperly, and as the nut on the damper rod may loosen, thus resulting in a loss of damping and the possible disassembly of the shock.
Now the recall has spread through the aftermarket to the OEM's also and has affected the Panigale range of Ducati with 1199 Panigale R, 1199 Panigale S and 1199 Superleggera, have all been recalled for the same. The same recall, initiated on advise by Öhlins has effected bikes like the Honda CBR1000RR SP and the Triumph Daytona 675R and the Speed Triple R, also.
The Ducati dealers for the affected bikes will be replacing the concerned part free of cost. However, the recall has only been carried out in Canada till now, and does it affect any of the bikes throughout the manufacturer range using the TTX36 rear shock in India, is not yet known.
We will be keep you posted on any and every development on this front.
