Thanks for the simpathy guys

Don't get me wrong, i still love my Ducs and it's very rewaring to ride a nice Duc especially at the track, but they do have issues (like all other bikes have or can have), but what's worse is the shitty way they can treat their costumers

Maybe they're so used to things going wrong that they just don't care anymore and find it normal

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.

sorry to hear your misfortune man. I bash ducs all the time, but they are very nice bikes. Just require a little more attention then I'm willing to give.

I hope ducati corp comes through for you in the end. FOrward these discussions to him as well.

The above issue happened to a 749R which according to MV has a history of the listed problems.

There is no reason to thinks the 1098 will be affected at all.

Of course not, the bike hasn't been released yet! What makes me question buying one is the treatment of the owner not the mechanical problem itself.

You should have looked at the forum like MV said the 1098 is out it arrived in Europe at least a month and a half now, and there are a few guys that have given rider perspectives of the bikes.

Also it just happens that the open house for the release of the 1098 is this weekend.

My bad I didn't read that far. I'm still apprehensive after the way Ducati wrote MV off. Most bikes come off the line and run like clockwork, but if I happen to get the one that has a manufacturing defect it would totally ruin the ownership experience. Race bikes I expect to spend money on. My streetbike; I want to just ride it without headaches.

Was thinking of going for the 1098, but now I'm pretty sure a 2008 R1 is in my future...

Thanks for the heads-up, and sorry they treat you so shitty

And yeah, that's exactly what pisses me off.
I mean every bike of every brand can have problems even originated by defective parts, but that's not the real issue here (for me at least)
The issue is the way the iberian importer and in the end the factory itself behaved.
Instead of standing by their costumer and product they just don't give a shit about it and let you by yourself. That's what i can't accept
