So, I'm watching the videos over at aprilia.com and they keep showing the RSV4 Factory pulling up wheelies, which makes me think... It won't have traction control. Thought I read that the TC on the Ducs won't let you wheelie because it cuts power when it senses a speed change between front and rear wheels, but....

Could the RSV4 have a different system, or none at all?

(but it does have, variable intake lengths, and 3 different switchable engine maps)

No traction control, just three maps.

No traction control, just three maps.

What is the point of these new bikes coming out with 3 different maps to use?

You are the traction control. If you can't control it, you shouldn't be riding it.

Have you watched Biaggi in a race yet ? if this were the case the SBK race bike doesnt have it either...i would imagine that i measures rear wheel rotation vs output shaft rotation or something like that

Ducati TC allows both wheelies and burnouts

The RSV4 will not have traction control when the bike makes its debut. According to Aprilia, it doesn't need traction control as much as "other bikes" do. Maybe it has something to do with the way the V4 gets power to the rear wheel? The press is saying the power delivery is very controllable. In any event, Aprilia also said they are working on traction control for the V4 some time in the future.

Yes, the new Marelli 7SM ignition system has the facility available for traction control, but Aprilia felt the power delivery didn't warrant it.
Besides the bike has got self cancelling indicators. You people want everything!!:)
