Ride mode clarification....

I have been researching the ride modes on my 13 hypermotard and came across a TopSpeed article:

"Power modes
The Ride-by-Wire system, which is present on all the models in the Hypermotard family, allows 3 different engine mappings to be used to control torque and power:
110 hp with sporting "HIGH" torque
110 hp with progressive "MEDIUM" torque
75 hp with progressive "LOW" torque
The structural features of the new 821 cc Testastretta 11° engine, together with the use of the Ride-by-Wire system which controls the opening of the butterfly valves on the basis of the input received, are the starting point in obtaining the Riding Modes for the new Hypermotard models.
Each Riding Mode has a preset engine mapping, but can be adjusted and customised to suit rider needs."

So does this basically mean that even if I select the "low" power setting in Race mode for example, I'm still getting 110hp, but with low torque delivery?

I don't believe so. The customizations that I know are possible are traction control and anti-lock brake sensitivity, not power output.

Thanks for the reply; I guess I should've been more informative, it's a 2013 Hypermotard SP, and it has Race, Sport and Rain mode settings. I am actually able to set Race mode to the "Low" engine power setting, but wasn't certain if that would be the same power delivery as other modes also set to "Low."

I am pretty certain the "Race", "High", "Rain", etc. are just labels. HIGH/ MED/ LOW is the power delivery method.

Hmm, I was under the impression that power delivery was the same for both Sport (touring on the base hyper / strada) and race (sport on the base hyper / strada). The difference between those two was in how the ride by wire system responded to throttle inputs with the high settings getting a much more sensitive throttle for quicker power delivery when rolling on.

Thanks for the response; this actually makes sense. Obviously whatever Ducati calls the modes on different models is irrelevant to this discussion, but how torque is delivered by the ride by wires system is ultimately dependent on mode selection. If memory serves well, the Hyperstrada did not have the option to select the engine power within each mode. While re-reading the article I posted above, there's even more info on the Hypermotard SP modes specifically:

Specific Riding Modes for the "SP"
The Ducati Riding Modes mark a turning-point in motorbike engineering and allow a choice to be made, depending on the model, from preset modes to optimise the vehicle’s performance on the basis of the rider’s riding style and the environmental conditions.

The innate sporting nature of the SP version of the new Hypermotard family is highlighted by the use of the same 3 Riding Modes as the 1199 Panigale, which are programmed to instantly change the engine torque and the intervention levels of the ABS and Ducati Traction Control even while riding:
RACE: The Race Riding Mode provides 110 hp with a direct response from the RbW on acceleration, minimum intervention from the DTC system and level 1 efficiency from the ABS which is applied only to the front wheel and without rear wheel lift control.
SPORT: The Sport Riding Mode provides 110 hp with a more progressive response from the RbW on acceleration, average level intervention from the DTC system and level 2 high braking efficiency from the ABS with reduced control over lift.
WET: The Wet Riding Mode provides 75 hp with gradual response from the RbW on acceleration, intervention from the DTC system close to the maximum threshold and level 3 braking efficiency from the ABS with maximum stability on braking and control over lift.

Nope: Engine Power Delivery Modes

The Power Delivery setting determines the output and throttle response. This setting is adjustable in all modes. If I want HIGH power in "URBAN" mode, I can set it that way.

Yep, that is correct and three ABS modes, level 2 high intervention, level 1 low intervention, or OFF altogether on the hypermotard.

And the traction control is fully adjustable in all levels too, 1 being the least intervention, or can be turned off altogether, but unless your a trackday god I wouldn't turn off, it has saved me on the track at level 1.

Thanks everyone; the power delivery curve graph is very helpful and exactly what I was looking for. Ducati, any reason why this info wasn't included in the owner's manual

I don't want to say Italians are lazy, but the chain tension diagram pretty much sums up the amount of effort they put into an English translation.
