Anyone have further details on the reasons for the hardware update to the IMU?

In the second case, buying a 2017 IMU like I did (the one on my 2015 wrecked bike was missing) obviously does not also give me the benefit of the updated DTC EVO.

Anyway, it is a truly a greedy thing to do for Ducati to charge anything at all (or anything more than a very nominal fee) for a software upgrade, whether to the IMU or the ECU, instead of following the example of Tesla. Truly a missed golden opportunity for Ducati to say thanks (at virtually no cost for it) to his passionate fans, at least the original buyers who forked $20,000+ for their new 2015 and 2016 bikes.

Agree totally ! Duicati doesnt give a crap about its customers...
