Riding on multistrada 950S

Riding on multistrada 950S

Are there humming sounds from the engine at 135 Km/h? Is it normal? If not, how can i resolve this issue?

I have a new 950s, and i noticed a humming sound, along with a pretty descent loss of power. I found that the throttle needed to be turned a lot to get the power output i needed. Then the bike would start stalling at a stop. Almost felt like it was running too rich. The timing keys failed. Buckled. Then, no start at all. Now its in the shop for a major rebuild. You should have yours looked at.

my engine died

Ok, so my engine just died. Timing keys failed. Almost blew a piston. Damged a valve. Not good. All this after only 500 miles. Ducati are taking of it, but man it sucks

So what went wrong - the key/s locking the timing pulley/s to the crank/camshaft/s? This does sound unusual, as we have other owners with big miles 36K and 48K + with no issuies. How have things progressed?
