Results of rapidbike evo

Just had the module installed by at Sebastian's milillimoto, I must say wow! When I say wow it's not a HP wow. The performance this module supplies to the bike is just amazing And I'm not at all exaggerating. The best way I can describe it.. Smooth! Threw out the entire rpm range just smooth running. No lugging/choking/bogging in lower rpm like it needs throttle. Throttle response is amazing. I would say, even without the HP gain I would get this module. Always self tuning as I ride more and more. I know JeffD is going to get the rapid module at some point and I'm sure his reaction will be quite the same. Just amazing. I must say I'm very satisfied with the results.
Thanks from Phl

What was Sebs response about your warranty? What exhaust do you have fitted?

Sebastian gave no warning of warranty void. Yaman of cyclepro suggested dealer install for warranty purposes. I run a full akra system with MWR airfilter. Install was relatively quick. A few hiccups being it was something they never seen but they got the job done at a great price too. Very pleased. Sebastian said he had a friend that went with this module as well so I'm sure he'll have some feedback himself. I know Nathan of ducpond has a customer himself that got the module as well. The best part is.. The module is always self tuning as you keep riding.

What I'm getting from most members is doing anything to your bike can result in voiding the warranty. But.. it has to be proven that the part you had installed caused and resulted in the failure of whatever went wrong. A good dealer relationship will play a big role I'm sure. And worst comes to worst if you truly feel your mod did not cause the failure and the mechanic said it did.. Legally you can get a second opinion, hire an attorney and fight it. I high doubt ducati want's to shell out money with faulty bikes and would love any excuse to avoid replacement of parts. No different then an insurance company.

Leon - Chris has the full Akrapovic system, and it is turning a beautiful BLUE


As Chris said, I'm planning on getting the Rapid Bike Race module, which adds ignition mapping as well as some other features. I spoke to Sebastian about the warranty bit and he paraphrased the Magnusson-Moss act just like Chris says above, i.e., the Rapid Bike module has to be shown to be at fault for a warranty claim to be denied. I asked Yaman about the Rapid Bike install and he said it can be removed without any trace of it being installed, if it ever came to that.

I also learned that you don't need the wideband O2 sensors (which would require an ECU reflash to bypass the OEM O2 sensors, another $500), that the Rapid Bike folks are quite proud that the OEM O2 sensors provide enough data, albeit a bit slower than wideband O2s, to effectively tune the system in real time.

So your going to fit this on your 1199? Has anyone else done this with how it behaves on the track?

Thanks.

Thamer, Yaman has the Termi slipons and ran it at our last track at PBIR. His bike ran pretty strong. I know I had a hard time keeping up on the one straight away we were flying down. But I'm also 50lbs heavier than Yaman, and my bike is stock, so I'm sure that has something to do with it. I plan on going full Akra and this seems like a good option. I might also do some engine mods as well( thinner head gasket, maybe conrods)....
Thanks from Thamer

Yes, what Leon (Ljuice26) said. As Chris stated in the original post above, I'm not expecting a peak power increase - my bike already dyno'd at 179, 4.25 hp off of a 2013 HP4 with Akrapovic on the same dyno/day/operator - but definitely more "area under the curve" and smoother throttle response. Here is a scan of my dyno run and you can see how ridiculously rich the AFR is throughout most of the rev range. This is with an MWR HE filter, Termignoni Slip-Ons and Termi slip Up-Map.

Thanks from Phl and Thamer

I still have a Rapidbike racing unit that I don't use, half price plus shipping if anyone is interested.

Anyone know the MSRP of the Rapidbike EVO?

I've looked around and haven't come up with anything.

Thanks!
