Costs of spare parts and labour will be covered by your Dealer. Only when your bike exceeds a total mileage of 50,000 km the costs related to spare parts will be refunded partially, in proportion to the mileage at the time of the breakdown.

Some examples of the components covered by the policy:

  • Engine
  • Gearbox
  • Water pump
  • Oil pump
  • Throttle body
  • Lambda sensor
  • Radiator
  • Oil cooler
  • Control units
  • Instrument panel

Protection that continues over time.

A Ducati Approved Pre-owned motorcycle does not fear time: we are ready to guarantee it for another 12 months, under the same conditions and with the same level of coverage, with Ducati Approved Plus 12. The warranty extension can be requested before the expiration date of a Ducati Approved Warranty on every Ducati Approved bike having less than 5 years from the first date of registration and with a mileage below 60,000 kilometres.
