Before you consider Ducati, ask the dealer if you can see their recall directory.  The last 5 volumes should do.  You don't so much own a Duc as join their product development team.

Replace Duc with BMW and you have the same criticism.

I think you can say that about a lot of brands. To be honest, I am never that worried about it. I have had a BMW with 0 problems, I have had two Honda's that I had to do quite a bit of work on. I had to work on the Tiger and my Ducati. Then again, my nineties Alfa has next to no rust.  ;)

Must have been a rogue one that missed quality control  :mut
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

Hahahaha, perhaps. Still, I am happy about it. A friend of mine was always teasing me with the fact that Alfa's would rust so bad. Then his (newer) Astra failed the MOT because it needed major welding. So, his was scrapped. Mine sailed through.
