Here is the original MV post
It's because my 749R engine with less than 8000km, with all the services and extra oil changes done in official Ducati dealers, just had a major engine failure back in October that consisted in the seizure of the con-rod bearings, connection rods and crankshaft.
Mind you that the bike was last serviced in April and had about 1000km since then.
Also, the last time i had rode it the bike was still under warranty and when this happened in October the warranty had just expired for about 3 months.
Also not that the bike had been in full stock form (even the exhaust was the stock one), and the engine had never been opened or messed with.
So, after almost 4 months of waiting for a final reply and after some emails to Ducati's CEO Federico Minoli, yesterday i got the final reply and they say they are not going to take responsibility on this matter.
This is clearly a case of a defected part or an engine malfunction not only because all the maintainace schedules were dully done (with some extra oil changes in the middle) and the bikes was never abused or had the engine opened or “tunned”, but also because there are several other cases exactly like this one affecting 749’s.
I know of at least more 5 of this cases, 2 in Italy and 3 in Spain, and this in only two Ducati forums.
A have a 1098S on order, but I think I will cancel my order as I don’t fell like spending more 21.600,00 euros on a Ducati when they can’t assume their responsibilities and stand behind they customers and products.
