Recall Details

On certain Diavel and Diavel Carbon motorcycles, the side stand was incorrectly manufactured and could fail. This could allow the side stand to bend or break, causing the motorcycle to become unstable while resting on the stand, which could result in damage to the motorcycle and/or personal injury. Additionally, severe deformation or breakage of the stand could interfere with the side stand’s safety switch operation, causing the engine to fail to start and/or run properly. Correction: Dealers will replace the side stand and pivot bolt with updated versions.
