I'm new on the forum but I've been following the threads a while ago, because the Ducati launched here in Brazil Hyperstrada only in July / 2014.
Since its launch, I have visited the dealerships to purchase a Hyperstrada.
Now in November, I will get the bike, but I'm noticing the bike has a chronic problem in the accelerator.
Let me see if I understand the situation, and lock the throttle is open?
The why of this question is that will be a point that will relate to the dealer at the time of acquisition.
I see a major problem with, so I would understand the right process for you are more in the know than me.

same issue with mine and the dealer replaced the throttle sensor. I will get the actual part name and part number and post it back here and let you know if it worked or not. It will also they say stop the herk and jerk on acceleration.

Hi guys,

I've experienced the same issue as well. It was last week when I went to flag off for a convoy. It was raining quite heavily. At the traffic light, I noticed the warning light on the dashboard flashed 3 times. Just ignored it anyway. And when I reached the flag off location, already stop and just when I released my hand from throttle suddenly it speed up & moved my bike forward, hitting 2 other bikes in front. My bike fell down but the engine kept running, which is weird because I've released the clutch & throttle. The engine should shut off if it fell down. I have to turn off the key. Some damage at the front light & the bike loses the brake when it is moving. Need to send to dealer this weekend. Will update the outcome.

The APS throttle sensor has to be replaced. They actually replace the entire right grip assy. No problems anymore since mine was replaced.

Replaced the APS throttle sensor/ actually replaced whole right grip assy. Heated grips installed on mine that was replaced with new right grip, can also affect regular grips.

Sorry about your accident but I'm not understanding what happened here. If you were stopped, either your clutch was in , or you're in neutral - how did the bike go forward - regardless of throttle response?

Also - are you sure the light you saw flashing wasn't traction control?

Also - I'm not sure but - don't see why the bike would stop running when it fell - if the rear tire is off the ground it will just rotate in first gear.

I Ride: anything I can get my hands on
Most modern bikes have a shut-off switch that activates when the bike is on its side. This is to prevent engine damage when the oil pickup is not submerged.

The more I read posts like this the more I think these parts (esp. the throttle) are not adequately sealed from water entry. My bike has never been wet, and has had zero problems. I assume everyone already knows not to use high pressure to wash a bike.

PS I always shift to neutral when coming to a stop, an old habit from Velocettes which are difficult to downshift when already stopped at a light.

I agree that there was potentially some user error with this mishap. Maybe thought you were in neutral and released clutch? Definitely sounds like the traction control lights you saw and nobody has reported a quick flashing CEL.

I always slip into neutral just before full stop. It's good practice if you have to find a badge for work or pay a toll with a line of angry cars behind you.
