I replaced my 1299s with a V4s last October. The V4 clutch is certainly a big improvement over the old clutch. I have not had to bleed it since new. Incidentally, I also purchased a Srambler 1100 Sport last May, and its clutch is excellent - nice and easy on the hand.

I hope they do not have issues with the V4R clutch. I plan to put my deposit down tomorrow on this bike. I have had the unicorn of 1199, so i hope to have the same experience
Thanks from Litening1199

There is a recall on the clutch cable, ducati is replacing the cable with a smaller inside diameter line. I did this about two weeks ago and i still had to bleed the clutch last friday night and the clutch is chattering in first gear now also so it will be going back to the dealer for its monthly visit for troubleshooting/ warranty work

Clutch cable? I thought it was a fluid line.

I went for a ride about 10 days ago and the engagement point went from nearly all the way out to close to the bar. I talked to the service manager and he said the smaller line is to keep it from being too close to the engine, where it's causing the fluid to boil.

I had him look up my VIN and my bike needs all 5 recalls performed. He won't have an oil cooler until the middle of next month (hopefully). I need to put about 400 miles on the bike so I can have the second service done at the same time. Sounds like I'll need to leave the bike for a day or two. Good thing I have other toys to choose from.
