I have not had any major issues with mine. It stalled 1 time while coming to a stop when riding in some elevation. And my gas cap makes a weird sound every now and then from pressure (which I believe is common, but maybe not normal) but I keep hearing there are a lot of problems out there. I assume dealers are covering the issues under warranty? What issues have you had and what was the outcome.

I have heard of:
- stalling issues
- chain o rings wearing out
- console failing
- error messages
- kinked fuel lines

Just trying to get ahead of the game in case I run into Any of these down the road.

Had my SP 3 months (6000 Km's), warranty claim on stock exhaust due to poor welds, RBW failure twice and front forks are currently being replaced due to damping failure in both fork legs.

RBW? Wow the Marzocchi forks failed. Crazy.

RBW = ride by wire.
Dealer had spoken to the warranty guys at Ducati in Italy, and apparently I'm this first guy on the planet to have to warranty the forks, and here's hoping for the rest of you guys, the last.

Well. Sounds like they are taking care of it for you. What happened with RBW? Just stopped working? Stuck?

when the RBW failed dropped to about 10% power, if that, didnt have enough power to rev past 6k. Error logs both times pointed to the RBW, but Ducati wont warranty any hardware changes unless mechanic can recreate problem. So far he has been unable to do so. FYI the RBW seemed to reset after turning the bike off and restarting, back to full power.

My wife's strada did the same thing. Mechanic experienced it too, said it was a known problem and Updated ECU, so far so good...

I have 3000 miles on my sp. right side fork was replaced 500 miles ago. Clutch cable snapped 20 miles ago. Beverly Hills Ducati has been really good about taking care of me though!

I´ve also had this happen to me a couple of times. Turn off and back on, no problem. Ducati won´t warranty this even though it shows in the error log? Cheap a$$ italians!

Mine stalled a couple of times coasting to a stop. Ducati has an upgraded ECU map for this. My dealer mapped mine and it seems to be cured.

My bike was stalling too and dealer uploaded the latest map but my bike still stalls - time to remove evap canister I guess. Also, wanted to ask this, how does the failed front fork feel like? Mine is pretty rough over the bumps, like it's not compressing any.

Because of the evap canister, the tank gets pressurized. It's because of vacuum lines back to the motor to be burned off. I have had the stalling issue a multitude of times. Random shutoff when it was hot out or at a stop light. I removed the canister and all those problems went away. Plugged the vacuum line with a screw and silicone and extended the fuel line below the bike with the atmosphere hose and a 1/4 inch nylon coupler with clamps. Solved laggy throttle, stalling and multiple cycle starts. Hope this helps you.

the ground wire for the kickstand seems to wobble loose a bit which is very annoying

not a fan of the false neutrals at 5th and 6th either

Issue I just started having for a week, maybe 20 minutes into riding an error message will flash then go away but my rpm is limited to 6k. Can still shift and ride but revs will stop at exactly 6k. Turn off bike then back on it works fine. Does it almost every other day, but since error message just flashes quickly and is gone, it doesn't show up on the error menu.
