I had the same problem, managed to exit the highway with 20 km/h in second gear and 2000rp/m. Dealer told me that it is the electronic accelerator. The will replace it next week. Will keep you posted!

I will ask about that part, still having problems where first fire up it will not rev as I drive away. shut down 100m down the street and fire back up, no problem rest of day, only problems now have been after first start up in the morning.

I got the same problem now. Happens frequently, Error codes say APS fault. Dealer will give me an appointment tomorrow and they will replace anything that causes the fault - throttle, ECU, whatever. I got the new ECU updates as well, they really improved low-rev performance smoothing out the ride a bit. I'm driving through rain today, can't tell if high performance is capped. I'm always a bit afraid of engine mapping changes as I had an Audi A1 which felt crippled performance-wise after an update. Anybody sported the HS before and after the update and can you share your opinion about the engine behaviour?
Thanks!

I need to make a date with dealer!

I saw in another post that a new update is available. Sounds like you had good dealer support. Mine is a little over 80 miles away so I have to work a date that I can drive up, get the work done and drive back. Good to hear you are on the road and things seem ok.

Just got mine back, had problems with the insurance that covered the transport back home. The electronic accelerator was changed and the last ECU update added. Runs much smoother now from around 2500 rp/m up. Will keep you all posted if these problems reoccur.

New update did not help

I had the latest update done two weeks ago and still have problem. Initial check in SoCal updated software and said might be APS. I mentioned it here in Alabama to techs and they updated software and did not see problem. I have had it happen four times since so about 40% of the time I have this problem. I will go back and ask them to review some of what was mentioned above.

Had Ecu update a few weeks ago while dealer was uninstalling charcoal filter that wouldn't let bike start. Now I can't get RPM to go over 5000??? Very sluggish throttle response. Wtf. Didn't try engine restart....will check this afternoon. Disappointing.

The bike is running bad.
3000 t/m 3 gear 50 km/u with a constant gas-hand the traction control [6/urban] is very often blinking and the bike is ' lurking' Not a pleasant ride.
Next week the dealer is contacting Ducati for an solution.
In the same time i have taking the demo bike from the dealer, with no updata's at all, and this one is riding far better then my bike with all the update's.
Any news from the dealer?

Was today at mine to fit the heated grips. A hypermotard guy was there for the ecu upgrade. I told the mechanic not to update mine (he was going to) and told him about the troubles. He hadn't heard anything from Ducati about it.... So I think I will keep the 3rd update for now.

I got a notice yesterday about a software update to help starting. I will be going by my dealer on the way to a meeting Friday. So figured I'd drop it off and have it done.

The 4rd update in my bike can not be downgraded, according to dealer that is not possible.
Option is to chance the ECU to the ECU from there demo bike whit no upgrades.
But it is an short time solution, because each bike has his original ECU.
The dealer bike without upgrade's is a little 'smoother' than mine 4rd generation bike.
I think the problem is the traction control, it is very often blinking, 6,7 and 8 can not be used without nearly all the time a blinking light.
Dealer is contacting Ducati about the traction control.
So I am waiting for the 5rd update.........
