1299: How do you operate the blipper correctly?

Good even ending all,

As I'm currently waiting to take delivery of my 1299, I started wondering how to correctly operate the downshifter.

Do you still have to close the throttle during downshifts when using the blipper, or can you simply downshift while still keeping the throttle open?

What would be the correct way? I tried taking a look at the 1299 manual which you can download from the Ducati website, but somehow I can't seem to find a word on the downshifter.

Close throttle, apply brakes (optional), and press the shifter down, that's it!

Yes. I can't think of a scenario where you'd want to be on the throttle and have the system synthetically generate a throttle blip above the point you're currently holding the throttle at.

Why would you ever want the throttle open if you're slowing down?

Downshifting while increasing acceleration can be a common occurrence when street riding. For example, when overtaking another vehicle, a rider may opt to downshift in order to quickly transition from a cruising RPM to a meatier range of the power band. I would imagine Ducati's blipper functionality could handle downshifts while maintaining or opening the throttle, so long as the downshift blip does not exceed the RPM redline.

Yes, but in that scenario, you would either:

1) roll off, clutch, shift at lower revs

or

2) roll off, clutch, blip, shift at high revs

You would never pull the clutch with constant throttle

Blipper is a skill-substitution for the 2nd scenario

Are you sure you are buying the right bike ?

You do need to close the throttle to activate the auto blipper for downshifting.

Yes, but that doesn't mean you would want to have the throttle blipped up in that scenario without having the clutch pulled in! Think about it for a minute, and I'm sure it will come to you......
