Engine shut down 3rd gear light throttle?!
I took delivery of my V4S last week and absolutely love it!!
Today i took the bike on its first proper ride (around 120km/75Mi). and was riding in quite warm conditions. I noticed once i got caught in traffic and was riding around 70km/h (35MPH) in 3rd gear the bike felt like it shuts down.... When i say that the bike doesn't decelerate, and maintains speed but the bike sounds like its gone silent (relatively) and as soon as you add throttle it barks loudly again with nil issues. At first i thought this was related to the rear cylinder shut down however it only happens in 3rd gear. Apart from the lack of engine noise the bike otherwise feels normal....
I guess my questions are:
-has anyone else experienced this?
-if so is it normal and what is actually happening ie shutting down cylinders or an exhaust valve to make it quiet?
-do ducati have any official information on this if this is indeed a feature?
Look forward to your responses
