So, in addition to a few cheap bits of black plastic, some little flappy valves and another expansion tank we have new "upgraded" software.

This software kills the two rear cylinders when you are stopped or riding with part throttle.

The purpose of this is to "reduce heat" and "improve fuel economy".

Am I the only one on the planet who thinks this is f**king ludicrous?

I did not buy this bike so I could ride around on two cylinders and I sure as **** did not buy this bike for "fuel economy".

I asked that both of these "upgrades" not be installed. I was told we do not have a choice.

Words not describe my frustration with Ducati.
