Only one Ducati dealership here Jarel, any chance you'd expand your franchise to Ireland. What you'd lose on selling upgrades, you'd more than make up for selling actual bikes........just a thought
Haha! Sounds great, I'll get started on that now.......

Sounds like your dealer doesn't know what he's talking about. It's not available for the R.

Doesn't the new 1299 SL come with it's own version of EVO SW? Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the SL doesn't have the electronic adjustable Ohlins and neither does the R model. Soooooo??

Probably more to do with 1199/1299 engines than active ohlins.

^^^I think its an engine thing rather than suspension. The base 1299 does not ave active suspension either. T/C and Wheelie can be controlled by the EMU thru the ECU. (thats my thoughts)

TJ had talked about this in the Anniversario thread. It had to do with the different engine size and different computers.

Last week I took the R out at Cartegena for the first time this year since I've been racing the Yamaha R6 for the last four or five months. For some reason the IMU and speed sensors were both knocked out so all the electronics turned themselves off. When I first got the bike last year and fitted the track fairings I had something similar and ended up high siding since the bike is so savage it's very difficult to stay smooth without just the very low race settings I normally use. This time I've had a chance to work out the suspension a bit more and it's amazing the difference the setup makes on the R. I guess the light weight of the bike makes it very sensitive. My 1199S is perfectly happy with no electronics but the R is an animal at times. It was still pretty angry but just by extending the rear shock a bit and tightening up the compression I went from not being able to push at all without risking a crash to having a really good last day.

The points I took from it is that firstly in relation to this thread it only takes a little intervention to make a big difference in rideability hence why I think any software update could be useful, and secondly it's interesting as a result of this how much the electronics can 'fix' or mask a less than optimal setup. I probably wouldnt have noticed the difference if the electronics were working even though I only have them set very low. It's worth pointing out that anyone who is going reasonably quick is going to be spinning up the rear even if they are not very aware of it, especially if you are getting on the power to finish a corner which is often needed on the Panigale to get it to turn as sharp as other bikes.
Thanks from Twistedracer and GunMoto

Interesting experience. One thing that Josh Hayes mentioned to our class while I was taking YCRS was that his philosophy since electronics have come to the forefront was to ride the bike with everything turned off. Finding the best settings they possibly can with the chassis and suspension. After they had done that, they start introducing electronics a little bit at a time. This way the electronics are not masking deficiencies in the bike, and unlocking performance they may have been hidden had they done it by starting with electronics first and then dialing them down.
