Mate this is the 1st Gen of the V4, what did you expect? History tends to repeat itself right, and all 1st Gen bikes had teething issues. I took delivery of my V4S 3 weeks ago and have no issues to date. Had the software update on delivery and that is it. I am aware of the new cooling improvements rolling out and kudos to Ducati for updating those as its not a recall, its an improvement for track use. I am still running in my bike with no recall items changed to date and have not had any problems. DQS is smooth as ever and I use it 100% of the time and at low revs as well. The good news is, you will be getting all the improvements and bulletin items throughout ownership unlike most manufacturers who only implement improvements on the next year model.
