Yeah, could be. I had a 5k limit happen in middle of the ride to the office this morning.... turning it off and re-starting fixed it. I will examine the neutral switch connection this weekend....

switched off ignition, switchen on again and started and problem was gone.
I don't know if it's one of the limit switches, but that is the same limp mode that we all report. Mine only happens on start up, however. Never got one after normal running.

With this type of "limp mode" described, it limits the power. Everything works and riding is no problem. You just have softer/shorter than normal power curve.

This is the recall issue. It applies regardless of throttle assembly because the part is at the other end of the throttle control.

I just got an e-mail from Ducati saying to have the throttle inspected and replaced.

I had my throttle replaced about 6 months ago. I wonder if it's a new version or not.

Update. The official email from ducati regarding the recall arrived. It is indeed parts in the throttle assembly itself including the housing. I brought my bike in with the heated grips. Not compatible with the recall parts. They even tried to put the new guts in my heated grip housing, but it throws a CEL. They were unable to make it work, so I went back to the heated grip throttle as delivered.

I haven't had problems with LHM yet with the heated throttle, so we'll just wait and see. THey are keeping my parts in case.

That sounds like a giant shit-sandwich to have to chew on.

I also just got the notice and have the heated grips. Did they at least offer to buy back the heated grips which would now be useless?

Why do we buy these little princess bikes?! A comparable Japanese bike would be so much less of a headache...
