New Hyperstrada owner

hi guys ....bought Hyperstrada last week and just returned from a 2k round trip to northern thailand were the rds are as good as they get.
Absolutely love the bike ....fun factor went through the roof.

One thing i did notice was ..when cruising around 150klm/hr i noticed the engine surging slightly, like it was begging me for more ....and it was impossible to maintain any speed. I took it into Ducati dealer at 1k service and they reset the mapping ..but its still there

Any ideas ...or is this normal for Ducati and twins ?

thanks for any recommendations

Welcome to this amazingly international forum.

If it's not there already, try turning the engine setting down to "Touring." I found the response in "Sport" too abrupt to maintain a steady speed. This does get better with practice, though. You are running the best quality high octane fuel you can find, yes?

Welcome to the club! Yes, these things are a blast and a half! Forecasting freezing rain where I live, so mine'll be sitting for a day or two, oh well, it makes you appreciate springtime.

Welcome to the forum! I think the engine needs to be shake down or tamed.

The first 1000km:under 5500-6000rpm
1000-2500km:under 7000rpm

Mine HP never has the same problem after shake down.

Good luck!

Great to see another hyper rider in BKK. Get ready for some serious heat when you get stuck on Sukhumvit on a Saturday afternoon.

Yes I have the same feeling too, slight surges along the way as I just wanted to "cruise". But got used to it. I think it is due to the throttle response.
