I also hear a lot of problems with the DQS, DWC, ABC, all electronic safety systems. I don't think it's an official recall but many owners are claiming problems.

The QS does take a bit to learn.

For example, I don't use it from 1st to 2nd because it just goes into neutral - same on the way down.

Also, it seems to be a bit particular about throttle certain positions. It seems to like WOT going up and closed throttle going down best.

Apparently a lot of owners around the first service time are having errors come up with sporadic intervention of the systems and spontaneous revving of the engine even in gear with increased speeds. Do you have gp shift on yours or just normal pattern?

That's good to know, thanks.

My shift pattern is normal right now but I just got it yesterday.

I'm fairly certain it has to be closed, or almost closed throttle, for the DS to work from what I was told before my rides by the dealer. That seemed to be consistent with what I found. It's a little strange as some of the aftermarket ones support DS without closing the throttle, but whatever I guess. Going up in gears I didn't have a problem as long as you were on the throttle (can't be barely on it). Definitely was going to take some getting used to, but it seemed to work once you found the nuances like you say.

I haven't ridden the V4 yet but on the Supersport the throttle needs to be strongly open going up the gears and shut down completely for each down shift.

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.

Yes very true, but this is much larger issue than in previous models, even for a new bike, new engine. Esp with VW ownership I expected a little bit more quality control, that isn't the case. Yes if you get a good one then no problems but if you don't.......
If you are willing to take that risk with an expensive bit of kit, kudos to you and I wish you well, but it's forums like this that keep the public informed about problems out there and allow the consumer to make an informed decision. As for myself. I'm waiting for the R by then things should be sussed out

Yeah agree with you. Waiting for the R, I'm pretty sure it will have a multitude of issues as well with the 1000cc motor as the previous 1st gen R's have done. 3rd gen always the safest if you want the most reliable package.
