    I don't think this is really all that new is it? Don't the latest KTM's have something similar?

    And I thought the service on my 1098 was 'spensive!

    Headline: OMG MEGA SUPER COMPUTER MOTORCYCLE ITALIAN EXPENSIVE!!!

    Article: No quantification of its computing power

    Reality: It's not a super computer.

    What they are adding to the street models is the adaptive setting. In other words, the thing learns a lot like a motogp bike does. Pretty insane, but yea, you have to wonder how long til something goes wrong. And can you imagine you local dealership monkey (no offense to mechanics) trying to figure out what is wrong???

    The thing is, all the manus are headed this way, so I guess we are too. Get on board.

    The regulator, radiator, fuel tank and some other things were faulty on my 2008 1098. There is low to no tech in any of those components and they still couldn't get it right. Do I have any faith in a super computered Duc being reliable? Nope.

    In this industry, regulators are failing on every brand. Same with abs fuel tanks in america. Not a brand thing. I do think Ducatis, though finicky, can be pretty damned reliable. On the other hand, all this tech means I won't be the one to fix anything that does go wrong.

    True superbikes are repaired using a mallet.
