I'm waiting for the Tuonos to appear stateside so I can buy one. In the mean time, all I can do is ask questions but the dealerships dont even know because they havnt riden one yet. I've read a lot of stuff on-line but nobody elaborates on the anti wheelie, launch control, or traction control features.
Currently, I own a 2011 Ducati Multistrada with similar electronics. It dosnt have anti wheelie control but the traction control regulates the wheelie factor as it is set to engage when there is any difference in wheel speed, (front vs. back). Its a total deal breaker when you want to fool around unless you lower the TC setting or turn it off completely. Its a hassel to say the least. I want traction control when cornering but I also want to point to the sky when ever I choose. On the Tuono, can you turn off the wheelie contol on the fly, and will the computer remember your last setting or will it revert back to the on position after each on/off cycle of the ignition switch?
Also, I read that the TV4 wheelie control dosnt violently cut off fueling but gradually eases off so the front end comes down lightly. Is this correct? Does the traction control intervene like the Ducati even if the wheelie control is OFF? The ducati chops the fueling so fast that I am forced to lower the Traction control to the least avasive setting so I can wheelie "at will", therefore, eliminating the efficiency of the traction control.
One more thing; launch control. Can you rev it wildly and just dump the clutch without flipping the bike or does it work differently?
What about the Hydrolic clutch fluid resivour? Where is it? My 07 Tuono had one....did they eliminate the hydrolic clutch?
If anyone can elaborate on these controls........
