and therefor the following litigation etc..

I don't think this would be acceptable on the premium auto market either.
Exactly, I feel ducati added this ‘may have a slight leak’ because of the amount of faulty water pumps and thermostat housing leaking.

I personally would not be able to live with it, any drop on the engine casing or in the belly pan or on the floor will be unacceptable.
Im on the same page as you, however the dealer has stepped up and said (after a bit of a tussle) they will replace the pump but cannot guarantee it will remedy the fault, this is a concern and as they now say they have this service release from the factory and it basically says it is ok to leak....

One thing that is on my mind now is do I invest into the new V4 simply because its a must have but knowing nothing abut its looming problems.
The 1199 - 1299 has been around for a number of years and now Ducati instead of engineering a water leak FIX simply add a page in the owners manual to say leaking is normal, all round I am just a bit uneasy with it

Ti consiglio di non comprare il v4 per il momento e presto usciranno un po' di problemi per aggiornamenti

Who’s to say the V4 won’t have its problems, manufacturers deliberately make things break down to make money on parts and labour for stealerships/themselves.

There’s a few cars that have known HG and transmission problems and no there is no recall.
Thanks from jpanigale

after spending the last 25+ years in the Engineering Maintenance sector, I would like to hear the technical need for a 'breather' on the water pump..
most motors will have a tell tail hole on the non water side of the pump to show seal failure and that the pump bearings are being contaminated with coolant.
it seems like the coolant system is over pressuring and pushing by the seal, but only at the extremity of the temperature operation, but I'm not an expert...

lets just say if my 1299 has an coolant or oil leak it will be sat at the dealers until its repaired, or the guarantee runs out (which ever is sooner ) ..!

Sounds like Ducat has good excuses for their issues...
