Ducati News must have gotten the news tip as us, as a IT security blog is to have information on how one can steal a Diavel (and presumably a Multistrada 1200) via the bike’s ignition system. It should be up-front that the pos referenced is April 5th, with the of the blog supposedly discovering information on April 1st…and all know what sort of goes on during that of the year .

According to the post’s author, the Diavel can be started not only having the key in the ignition, but without the key at While anyone who has ridden the knows that you only to have the key in the proximity of the Diavel you’re riding, the idea one can start the bike without the key from a default code comes up when such an act is Where things get sticky is that the author claims this four-digit PIN is set from the to be the last four digits of the VIN, and that few owners of security feature.

Like all good rumors one is based on truth, but also false. The Ducati Diavel and 1200 do come with a enabled key, which a only needs to have in of the Diavel when riding to the motorcycle.

Admittedly it’s entirely that some deal in the US have setup their overrides ahead of customer and have used the last digits of the bike’s VIN as a quick and way to easily manage their It is also possible that dealers haven’t instructed and MTS1200 owners how to setup feature, and enter a personalized thus creating some for this rumor.

So while this myth to be busted as far as creating a serious threat for Ducati owners, would dictate that and Multistrada 1200 owners take a minute with owners manual and set these before some punk kid too many weblogs tries to with their ride.
