I Ride: Hyperstrada
So ....
28642301A engine control unit $1788US
38010145B ignition coil $135
40610953E instrument panel $986US
$2909US, or probably not much change out of $4k here in AUS.

I would not want this to happen out of warranty.

Are all modern Ducatis like this or is the Hyper a "special" case ?

Limp Mode

I just bought my 2013 Hyperstrada last Thursday. It was a dealer demo, and had 400 miles on it. The next day I started experiencing the same limp mode issue, but if I turned the key off and restarted, it would be fine. Then it started happening much more frequently. When I brought it in for it's 600 mile service they found an error code (my display did not show it). They replaced the whole throttle assembly with a 2014 part. What a difference... The throttle is not nearly as twitchy, but responds appropriately when you dial on the power. Also the spring inside the assemble is a much heavier duty spring and you can feel a lot more tension (not too much though). Hope this helps someone..

Any updates to this issue? Had done 4000km on my hyperstrada. An error code will appear on the dash while on the move 30~40km/h above. I'm still about the rev n ride bike without feeling "limp"

I think the Hyper enters limp mode as soon as anything goes wrong with throttle control. It has to do that, that's a result of the ride by wire system. If it didn't it could be the bike takes off and crashes into something! So as an engineer I very much understand there needing to be a failsafe mode as soon as anything isn't right.

In my case it was just a faulty contact / loose plug for the throttle control sensors.

Easily fixed, no spare parts required.

If this happens to you, don't panic.

Here in good old California there is a separate warranty for the emissions system that runs for 5 years. It's a CARB requirement for any bike sold here since 1979!

Where is this "faulty contact" located ?

The throttle sensor's can be recalibrated, too. They can generate a mis-compare and my shop theorized that it could possibly happen from too much RF/EMI exposure. Debatable, but, mine were reset without replacing any parts.

Me too had a similar issue on my 2014 strada with 1000 plus km on. And they replaced the throttle sensor, and now everything is fine. There is a noticeable difference in the response and tension on the throttle.

Had the same issue in July on my 2013 Hyperstrada, just a month after buying it new and with about 1000 miles on the clock. Dealer replaced dash, ECU, ignition coils, and spark plugs. Also performed a recall (I believe just an updated software download). No changes to the throttle position sensor as far as I know. Problem went away, and the throttle response became much smoother.
