You should not have to run an engine at close to half its rpm potential just to keep it from bucking and surging etc.while just cruising down the street on a casual ride to the store etc. Keeping the bike at 6K or higher rpm all the time not only adds a lot of unnecessary wear and tear on the motor it also keeps the temperature up there pretty hot.

Bottom line is the motor is NOT smooth at all at anything below about 5K on my bike and it is aggravating...in town or the highway (and at anything below 80mh 5th and 6th gear are not ever used ( unless I am either really speeding or on the track.)
In my opinion overall as a street bike the Panigale 1299 S sucks..

The motor is over built and runs far too lean and hot and the low rpm/speed fueling is atrocious..

The Dragon Lady with her PCV and Autotune pulls smoothly from 2000rpm in 6th (ok her 42 tooth rear sprocket helps a bit)...

I've had really no time to ride due to work but have taken it out a dozen times on short rides.

Still starts up no problem, no stalling. Has not stalled at all on the street, before happened like 6-8 times. Runs nice and smooth. As said I'm a 3-4000rpm cruiser when putting around. It is 100% smoother than before.

Guys is the RB better than the Power Comander with an auto tune? I have the combo on a few of my bikes and really love it?

I've been running the RB for over a year now with zero issues.

If there are issues with the bike with or without the RB module, there is something wrong with your bike.

Sorry.

Thanks.... To be honest I haven't even gotten the bike yet. But reading all these threads is making me thing I might have some kind of fueling issue when I do. I just ordered the 1299S Anniversaro and not sure what to expect as this will be my first Ducati....

Has anyone noticed a reduction in heat after installing the rapid bike module? Theoretically it would fix lean fueling conditions which cause an increase in engine heat?

It seems to run cooler but no hard evidence of it. Last time out on a 90 degree day I did not roast my thighs. Didn't even think about it. Before I would chicken wing it many times on my ride.
Thanks from tpadden

Good luck..... It is just luck of the draw which one they send you.. If you get a good one then you are very lucky and will have no problems.. If you get one like mine then be prepared for a long period of aggravation and many visits to the shop..
