Thumbs up Rear shock leaking or seeping

Took my yellow scrambler icon for the 600 or rather 621 mile service couple days back and the service guys noticed a leak or a seep in the rear shock. A little shocked considering how new it is and I don't do any kind of off-roading. The dealer has ordered a replacement since its under warranty and am hoping Ducati will agree to the claim and send a new one.

Love the scrambler, its a great bike, fits me very well and good for two up riding as well. Just don't like it having issues this soon. But again its nothing compared to some of the issues others have faced.

Hopefully Ducati will honor the warranty claim. I don't suppose this is a common/known issue? Haven't heard anyone else experiencing this on the forum.

The service rep at the dealership said it should be fine, Ducati is usually good with claims like this. It definitely seems like there is some leakage, find a little puddle each time I check back, maybe the size of a palm. Not sure if I should refrain myself from riding, rather difficult to do that. Each time I look at it I want to go ride.

Not sure what has happened, maybe I should have waited for a brand new one, bought the demo bike since I loved it so much that I couldn't wait. I am a bit impulsive when it comes to bikes.

I love the bike though, most fun I have had on a any bike.

I've been wondering about demo bikes....do you still get the full two-year warranty beginning with your purchase date? Thanks

Yea they do include the warranty and I also got an extended warranty for about 900 bucks to cover beyond the 2 years.

Not surprised at all - about the leaking or the fact that Ducati didn't hesitate to replace it.

That cheap unit costs them $34 to replace.

Tony-

It couldn't be just 34 bucks, seriously? So I spoke to the dealer about the possibility of Ducati not honoring the claim, he said unlikely, but if they were to not honor it these units cost around 500 - 600 $!! and then labor to replace it.

Let me know.
