How many miles do you have on the bike?
Not sure if this is applicable but I had a cold starting problem with an air cooled Monster 1100 EVO. I had about 4500 miles on it and it started doing what your bike is doing, stalling on cold startup. Bike would start fine warm but when cold it would start and then immediately stall. I took it to the dealer and they ended up having it for three weeks while they tried various things to fix the problem but nothing worked. Ducati finally recommended they start checking the basic things on the bike one of which was the valve clearances. Turned out both exhaust valves were very tight, basically zero clearance. They adjusted them and the bike started up fine from then on.
