Chg V4 ride mode??

I know this seems super silly, but my new V4 I have tried every variation per the manual and I cannot get my 140mi bike out of sport mode?? WTF?
[ Note: no not while riding above 3kmph per manual etc. ]

Anyone w a V4 advise as to this please-pulease?
I click up or down, and hit enter, and have tried selecting it, holding it, tapping each twice, thrice, waiting three seconds (per manual), or exiting, and never can or will it change to any other mode (STREET OR RACE)??? I have even reset to defaults -- no go yet still? Crazy???

What Italian nav nuance am I missing?


Thank you mucho!

While on the main screen (don't go to the settings menu), press and hold the mode or select button, after 3 seconds it will enter in riding modes menu and show different settings for sport mode. Go to back item in the menu, select that, scroll to the street/ race mode and press & hold select button. It should then change the mode and come out on the main screen.
I also faced the same confusion and then figured out. Hope this helps.
Thanks from HFW003 and cavlino

OMG you are the best! Thank you!

Thank you so much! Was not able to sleep tonight till solved! Got it straightaway!

Nothing like an old software and usability expert to feel like a true Ducky dolt boob!! Haha! Wow, Italian Keebler Elves writing manuals these days are waaayy tippin the chianti! Even reading manual after your simple explanation and their words still make-a no-a sence-za?

Thanks again so much! Now the RACE begins to-marraw!

I Ride: 2018 Panigale V4. Have had 4 Ducatis before this. And some 30 other bikes.
I had the same problems. I also discovered you have different modes in standstill and driving. I could only change between the street/sport/race modes when driving. Should be opposite, though...

No you can change modes anytime riding or stopped. You need to make sure that you do not have settings displayed when just changing ride modes. If you do then it will take into the sub menus to adjust all of the features in those modes.

1.) make sure Settings Menu is not highlighted
2.) push the right\middle side of the left button this will bring up ride modes
3.) scroll up or down to the mode you want press right side of left button to chose
4.) if you are moving and in gear you will see close throttle displayed
5.) once the throttle is closed the mode activates
