That would be cool, keep us posted.

I Ride: 1299 S
I converted my 2015 1299s to a track bike and it was only when i looked back at GoPro footage of the dash did i see just how often the traction control was flashing. I never even noticed it out on track. To me, that shows just how good the electronics on this bike is.

Didn't go for the EVO slide control upgrade and don't feel like i'm missing out.

Yea dunno how it is on the Ducati, but on my bike i like and use & adjust traction, wheelie, and abs, and engine braking. And love having it.

I believe the 2017 onwards and Anniversarios have cornering ABS
Ben if you get the chance you should ride a bike with the electronics removed if you are in the fast group. It will make you a believer. I have removed the front and rear electronics as well as the ABS from my 1299s Race bike and I am much much quicker with out them. Also the bike is much more predictable. With the electronics I could go through the same turn 5 times in a row with the same feeling. Lap number 6.....who the hell's bike am I riding? Then lap 7 back to norm. Lap 9 bike again acts like a different bike. I got tired of it.

Thatís a shame . With a bike set up well with electronics working like they should is a incredible bike to ride .
I love the electronics on my bike WOT out of corners and trusting the bike is awesome ..
