Reporting of safety defects
If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could
cause a crash or could cause injury or death, you should
immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) in addition to notifying Ducati
North America. If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it
may open an investigation, and if it finds that a safety
defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall
and remedy campaign. However, NHTSA cannot become
involved in individual problems between you, your dealer,
or Ducati North America. To contact NHTSA, you may
either call the Auto Safety Hotline toll-free at 1-800-424-
9393 (or 366-0123 in Washington, D.C. area) or write to:
NHTSA, U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington,
D.C. 20590. You can also obtain other information about
motor vehicle safety from the Hotline.

Noise and exhaust emission control system
Source of Emissions
The combustion process produces carbon monoxide and
hydrocarbons. Control of hydrocarbons is very important
because under certain conditions, they react to form
photochemical smog when subjected to sunlight. Carbon
monoxide does not react in the same way, but is toxic.
Ducati utilizes lean carburetor settings and other systems
to reduce carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons.
