Ignition button stays pushed in

Hi,
just wondering if anyone else had this problem?
So i start my bike, and the button somehow stays pushed in, it's not noticable when riding, but when you turn your key on the next time you want to start it, the bike imiddiatly starts itself because the button is still pressed in.. It scared the **** out of me the first time it started itself lol.. So after a few times i learned to always pull the button out with my fingernails after i started it so it wouldnt surprise me the next time i start it.. is it harmful to the bike in some way if it stays pushed in? any solutions for this problem?
I apologize for my bad english, but i'm from belgium..
thx

That's a problem for sure, take it back to your dealer for a warranty repair.

I don't have that problem but the demo bike I rode did. Bike started when I turned the key.

I have had that too. On my bike it just looks like there may be a slightly ill fitting button that will wear down over time. A small prod and the button pops out again. Does make you jump though when the bike goes through the flashing lights sequence and starts straight up.

I've had the same issue. Just a little flick and it pops out. Jarel, do you think this is really something we should take into the dealer about? What kind of a fix would they provide?

Same here, I find that when you push the button, push it upwards so it doesn't get stuck. Every time it gets stuck it's always stuck on the bottom

It should not get stuck, if it is everyone should be taking their bike in to their dealer to have it repaired under warranty so Ducati knows there's a problem with it. If no one ever reports the problem it's going to be hard for them to come out with a fix for it. Your ignition button should NEVER stick, if it does you have a problem.

Mine has never even come close to being stuck, this thread is like a total WTF I can't believe how many are reporting the issue!
