New DTC EVO available to all 1299 Panigale owners

The new Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO) takes performance and safety to new heights, giving this sophisticated technology - an offshoot of Ducati research and exclusive MotoGP and SBK-derived know-how - a significant boost.
DTC EVO was first introduced on the 1299 Panigale S Anniversario, then offered as standard on the 1299 Panigale, 1299 Panigale S Model Year 2017 and the cutting-edge, exclusive 1299 Superleggera and 1299 Panigale R Final Edition versions.
Ducati has now decided to make the new traction control system available to all 1299 Panigale owners by providing a software upgrade for previous DTC versions mounted on the 2015 and 2016 range.

DTC EVO is based on an algorithm that makes system intervention faster and more precise. By interfacing with the Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), DTC EVO constantly the bike's lean angle, using it to accurately calculate the degree of intervention needed to ensure suitable rear wheelspin (according to the DTC EVO level setting), providing higher performance and better safety.

To improve cornering performance maximising acceleration and raising safety levels - DTC EVO acts on the throttle body valves and controls spark and injection advance. Offering increased precision and intervention consistency, DTC EVO is particularly advantageous in situations where grip changes, such as when the rear tyre becomes worn.

With simpler types of traction control, detection of rear wheelspin sees the system intervene to hold it in check. When optimal grip is re-established the system reduces intervention until spin reoccurs and the cycle repeats. This produces a graph that shows intervention oscillating around a theoretical "ideal intervention line" that represents the traction limit. DTC EVO reduces the magnitude of those oscillations, making the system operate closer to the perfect intervention line.

The upgrade is available, as an accessory, for the 1299 Panigale and 1299 Panigale S models of the 2015 and 2016 range.
