all Sport Classics came with 1 red key, 2 black keys and 1 code card. As you know, I also have a black 09' Sport 1000s which came with all the aforementioned items.
the red key is needed to copy the other keys as well as program the ECU AND most importantly, if your dash breaks down you will need the red key to program the new dash to your existing key set and ECU. Someone told me that Ducati is now able to copy the black keys so you should for sure make a couple spares for "just in case"
Lastly, having the original set of keys and code card is important for some (like me) who want the original stuff. However, your bike has been heavily modified and is far from original.
Bottom line, you will not be able to obtain a Ducati red key or code card with having the black key only. You can get an aftermarket set only. If you want the original Ducati keys, you will need to change and pay for a new dash, ECU, locks and keys. And that is one costly service!
