The non starting issue still reigns supreme it manifested really after the shop did a suspension update into the system sometimes it will fire up but other times its like a T model Ford running on 3 cylinders backfiring when it eventually starts. Two things worry me the load on the battery and starter I only crank it for @5-6 seconds then pause for @15 seconds and the backfiring which I do take as not a cochre thing to be happening.
My shop is brilliant and they have bent over backwards to help me as best they can even got me a LI charger 16 months down the track that was supposed to come with the bike originally, so they are waiting to see the malady fixed elsewhere and then do mine but apart from that it does run smoothly once warmed up.

They have a special on at the shop at present a 2019 V4S for drive away no more to pay $37,590.oo/Au when I got mine in Sept 2018 it was $40,200 +ORC so @$42,000 I considered trading mine in on it but as it is a Generation 1 like most of us have I'll be keeping it.

I just experienced this. I went in for 1st service, picked it up and it stalled when I pulled in the clutch lever leaving the dealer. I took off thinking it was odd and it felt funny riding down the freeway. I stopped topped off with gas and everything seemed fine. Went to lunch, came out took off and same thing ( died when I pulled in the clutch lever at a stop). I called the dealer and they said to keep an eye on it. I took off and it ran poorly (possibly rich or lean) not a misfire. It ran pooly and I stalled again at a light but restarted and took off down the freeway. Again at a steady rpm it felt like it was loosing power like dragging something. After a few minutes it seemed fine till I got home. It almost seemed like a heat soak issue. Im going to let it sit for an hr now after getting home and take it out to see if it happens again and narrow down the circumstances if possible.

No recalls performed, just the general 1st service

As far as this issues goes what fixed mine which was a the 1199 was to remove the charcoal canister. After that there was no more stalling or hard start issues.

Also once I purchased the V4R I had full ARKA system put on which removes the Charcoal Canister so I never had the issue with the V4R since I took delivery with the Full System already installed. But I did ask the Dealer about the canister and they did say it still give the bikes some issues with hard starting.

Here is some info on the Charcoal Canister. Hope this helps you guys but it's mainly about the 1199 and 1299.

Just got off the phone with my shop. Here's my story and my two cents. My V4 base ran like a top up until I took it in for its first service and for recall SRV-RCL-19-001 CR177 (https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2019/RCSB-19V382-9239.pdf). When I got it back, the tank no longer pressurized and it started running like it was starved for fuel. Sometimes it's just that the power delivery isn't consistent. Sometimes the bike stutters and cuts off like there's a fuel line blockage. The other day on the way home...the reason I took it in to the shop...it cut off 4 times in twenty miles. They can't reproduce the symptoms so Ducati has told them to tell me too bad, so sad, come pick up the bike. They (Ducati, not my shop) suggested I buy a GoPro and wear it at all times so I can video the bike behaving badly if it ever happens again. WT actual F? The service manager says there are four V4 base models in his shop right now and they're in the exact same boat as me. So long story short, I'm going to pick up my bike on Saturday morning and the only thing they've managed to do to it is put more miles on it. The recall was simply removing a small metal ball from inside the filler cap breather. Obviously, the Duc shop won't put it back in. But I'm considering replacing it of my own accord.

This is beyond frustrating.

Quick update - I'm still having the issues after an extensive stay and fault finding process with an authorised Ducati dealership, who have been excellent in their dealings with me however still waiting to get to the bottom of it...

I'm hearing a rumour of an updated map that will run a little richer allowing for better start and low rev running, will wait and see what transpires... funnily enough, surging is minimal now, more feeling like cutting out and so I rev the crap out of it and hard to start when cold but every once in a while, it just starts?!?!?!
Hi, has the the issue get resolved at all?

My bike has cut out while riding a few times now. It went in for a bunch of recalls they said would solve the problem. So today a month after the recalls it did it again. Anyone else having this problem?
I just bought a 2020 V4S and had this happen to me. I was turning into work and right before half way through the turn, the engine stopped.
There was nothing unusual occurring at the time. It was running, then it was not. I was coasting and was able to immediately restart the engine and continue riding.
Thinking of the issue, I think it might be the stand switch. I was breaking hard, and there was a bump in the road. It could have been that the combination of hard braking and the bump was enough to have the switch click, stopping the engine. Just my 2 cents.

I have a 2020 V4S as well, and have run into this issue a few times. The dealer has replaced the switch and a few others things, but still happening.
