Recall Details

On certain Diavel and Diavel Carbon motorcycles, the chain guard was manufactured with brass inserts that could deform over time. This could allow the license plate holder to loosen and interfere with the motorcycle’s rear wheel, which could result in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the chain guard with an updated version.
