First sign of bad throttle behavior

Well, I was hoping my bike was immune but apparently not.

On my commute this morning when I came upon a right turn I make during every commute, the throttle didn't close though I rolled off to decel and downshift. The bike didn't slow down and to avoid running off the outside of the turn and onto the opposite curb I had to grab the brakes and pull in the clutch and try to lean the bike over way late. I corrected and rode through the turn and coasted down to the next intersection. Blipped the throttle a few times and it seemed normal.

15 miles later I was at a light, ready to take off so I crept forward a bit to position myself better and when I rolled back off the throttle,it stayed at 2500. Clutch in, no throttle applied, it sat there with the RPMS that way until I gave it a couple of blips and then it settled down.

Bad enough I have to dodge all the horrible NYC drivers, now I have to worry that my bike is going to unintentionally accelerate me into getting killed. Nice.

@Nursedaddy,

Had the same problem in Italy 3 month ago after an heavy rain shower! Called my dealer in Germany for advice! He said He need to check the ECU first for faults,before he can do something! So after the break no problem anymore for the rest of the trip!
After the return to germany the Dealer checked the ECU for faults, Clears the memory and cleaned the throttle and did a software Update! So no big deal,the Last 3 month and 3500km No problem any more!

Gruß Steffen

This is a pretty big deal. I'm thinking Prius unintended acceleration. I would just stress that the dealer needs to bring this to Ducati's attention. Seems like the TBW contacts act up when dirty or very wet. I rode through many FL downpours without this particular symptom, however, I did have a string of faulty startup's in limp mode which the tech's related to bad communication in the throttle contacts.

I've not ridden in rain that was much more than a sprinkle. I've washed the bike though, but I never aim water at the controls or engine, mostly body and wheels to get the grime off.

I think I'm going to ride with my GoPro on from now on so it can record this behavior should it happen again. The last thing I want to do is get hurt, either. And I certainly don't want anything that happens to be attributed to rider error. Should the symptoms be captured on video, I'll be able to show it to the dealer.

What would I see indicated on the dash display, anything? How do I bring up a code?

You See the yellow Engine light is well!
With the fault Code the Ducati Dealer need to do Job! The fault is safed in the ECU and the Dealer need to read out what the problem is! You can not do anything!

It's no big deal for ME ! I still feel very,very Safe with my Hyperstrada I have no Problem at all with that and the Dealer and Ducati know about the problem with my Hyperstrada!

Well, my limp mode starts never showed an "error" on display. I'd say of the dozen or so limp mode start-ups I had, only once did I get the "error". Always cleared and worked 4.0 after shutting down and starting back up.

It's a very serious problem. I posted in a different thread in relation to this. I did not have the electronic throttle sticking issue until after a long trip through some serious downpours. The service manager at my Ducati shop saw the issue first hand and his eyes widened!

I just hope Ducati will continue to support us. Its a serious safety issue and recipe for disaster.

I think with the speed limit in the US is a very serious safety issue! Here in Germany not so much.

Sorry if you get upset with me but I could not resist!

With my first monster 18 years ago. I'm not even came from the parking space of my Ducati dealer place. The tank has already start to leak!
Thats Ducati is well, but I did't have a problem with that BECAUSE IT'S DUCATI AND I LOVE IT and I learned a lot over the years!

It's not an issue to be taken lightly.
A throttle staying on when you don't want it to means the difference between control and dangerous loss of control that can put you in danger very quickly. Throttle issues shouldnt be chalked up to a quirk of the marque. I wouldnt want to operate a vehicle that has random issues with its brakes either. A bike that keeps the throttle open when you close it means you need to process that you are not slowing down as you expected, you need to pull in the clutch, all the while the bike is covering ground quickly and you are on a trajectory you didn't plan on. Factor in the rest of traffic and tell me that's not scary and it's just a quirky Ducati where stuff breaks or leaks. No thanks.

If i take the issue lightly! I would not ride a Ducati anymore that it. But over the Last 18 years they make a really big improvement on the bikes quality I can tell you!

@NurseDaddy

If you take it not lightly, did you make an appointment with your dealer to check the ECU for faults?
That's the first thing you should do, most of the time to read out the ECU faults!
