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, 1200 New
Jersey Avenue SE W43-488, Washington, D.C. 20590. You
can also obtain other information about motor vehicle safety
from the Hotline.

Noise and exhaust emission control
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.
