(22-24) Ducati Panigale Streetfighter V2 Stage 1+ Performance Calibration With Handheld Tuner


The Ducati V2 is probably one of the most capable platforms we have ever tested. Every aspect of this bike is AMAZING it’s an updated Ducati 959 at a steal of a price. 




The Ducati V2 is probably one of the most capable platforms we have ever tested. Every aspect of this bike is AMAZING it’s an updated Ducati 959 at a steal of a price. At BT Moto, we take bikes that are already amazing and make them spectacular. The Ducati V2 is no exception.

Our work with the Panigale V4/1299/1199/959/899/848 Handheld Tuner has helped us develop what we consider the best upgrade you can get for your Panigale V2. We have found the refreshed 2020 V2 has a lot of positive changes, not only visually, but also on the software side. Remember we use factory information and reverse engineer we don’t use incomplete or cheap guessing “Race” editors like our competitors do.

We had to re-develop fuel map strategies from square one. Ignition maps and throttle mapping are also all new for 2021 Ducati V2. One of the big complaints for the V2 was the twitchy throttle that could make the bike buck in a corner along with the big torque HOLE from 4-8,000rpm. The next issue is the exhaust valve problem, bad start and idling, and low power at midrange due to extremely lean fueling.

What Does Stage 1 Include?

  • Correct fueling on both banks in “Alpha N” mode
  • Deceleration fuel cut off for all gears, the bike will no longer jerk from throttle inputs
  • Raise rev limiter
  • Raised torque limiters
  • Raised load limiters
  • Revised traction control and ABS
  • Ignition timing adjustments
  • Exhaust valve adjustments

Anyone that has the Akra up-map will say the bike feels a lot more lively than stock. So how does our Stage 1 flash compare? Beta testers and our own R&D reveal a VAST improvement over the stock map and even the up-map from Akra.

Why Is This The Best Upgrade You Can Buy?

Currently, there are only one option to flash the V2 and they it requires the purchase of an exhaust system. This option is mostly just fueling changes and can be dramatically improved upon. How do we know? We’ve tested all options extensively and can say with 100% confidence that our flash is superior in every way. The up-map flash option cannot be purchased independently without the purchase of an exhaust. So what do people with all other exhausts do? There’s nothing they can do at the moment. Our mapping is currently the only truly developed and tuned file using true Conti M4D Ducati function sheets and mapping accordingly, using our in-house motorcycle and dynometer and datalogging. Not just nudging numbers in generic editors, with no testing, like we see so many people do.With or without an exhaust flash, we all know the Ducati V2 is a great bike! We also know it isn’t perfect. Issues that we’ve tested ourselves and what customers have reported include the following:

  • There’s only one flashing options (Akra provided mapping) and they require you to spend thousands on a new exhaust system to go with them. Our product will work on all used systems, or used bikes, where you don’t need a VIN specific Up-Map. We are the ONLY stand alone flash option on the market!
  • Stalling for no reason during idle
  • Startup issues when exhaust is installed
  • Smoking issue and hard starting in all temperatures
  • Issues when exhaust is installed
  • Acceleration that isn’t smooth through the entire RPM range due to inaccurate AFR
  • Engine seems to struggle (lurch or jump through RPM range, 4000 - 8000 RPM) if too warm
  • Power that seems to level off (flatten) after 8,000 RPM

So What Do We Do About This?

After extensive R&D with our own, in-house, Ducati V2 and select “beta” testers, we can confidently say that we successfully addressed each issue and improved every performance aspect of the V2.

  • No more stalling at idle for no reason
  • Deceleration fuel cut off fixed (a BT only feature)
  • No startup issues with exhaust installed
  • Acceleration is now smooth through the entire RPM range
  • Engine performs the same with the engine warm or hot
  • No problematic Fault codes

Dyno Testing

Dyno Testing

The graph below represents a 2020 Ducati Panigale V2 (same engine as the Streetfighter V2) with aftermarket exhaust. You can see how the power get extremely "jerky" in the low and mid-range RPM. If you look below the power graph you can clearly see the issue.  Without proper tuning the AFR (air/fuel ratio) spikes to 19.0:1. Something this lean (lack of proper fueling) is actually harmful to your motorcycle and may damage engine components after extended use.


STOCK = 135whp / 71wtq (pump gas with exhaust system)

STAGE 1 = 147whp / 77wtq (pump gas with exhaust system and BTM Stage 1)

STAGE 1 = 153whp / 80wtq (MR12 fuel with exhaust system and BTM Stage 1)

TOTAL GAINS OVER STOCK = +18whp / +9wtq

V2 Dyno

**All in-house testing performed with 93 octane pump gas, unless otherwise stipulated. Usage of a lower octane will yield smaller power gains.**



Custom tuning at your finger tips on your schedule.  Read and write your own motorcycles ecu in the comfort of your home. No longer need to bring your bike to a shop, buying a $1000 hardware kit + time + dyno then paying for time of a technician one time deal.  You now have a virtual custom personal tuner at your finger tips. This is a for life purchase with full flexibility to transfer to other motorcycles in the future. Thoroughly tested by our own engineers, not just for its function but also durability.  


  • NO DOWNTIME - No need to send in your ECU or remove it from your bike at all.  You order the handheld, it get's delivered to you nearly instantly, and you flash your bike on your time easily.  You never miss a day of riding and no effort removing the ECU. Any issues, you can revert back to the full stock state.
  • READ AND CLEAR CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS - Full diagnostic of the ecu including the device.
  • STORE MULTIPLE MAPS - When you send in your ECU, you only get one map.  You might be thinking, "why would I need more than one map?".  Storing multiple maps means you're able to flash for different configurations.  If you're a serious track competitor, we can work with you to get you different mapping for different tracks.  If, for example, you're add modifications to your stock bike, we can email you a file that takes the new exhaust into account with the changes you need to optimize your bike's new modifications with no mailing needed.
  • GO BACK TO STOCK ANYTIME - Not only can you store multiple files, you can also flash the original, stock file back into the bike at any time and for any reason for service, sales, and more.
  • ABILITY TO TUNE FUTURE BIKES - Customers swap bikes all the time! With our handheld tuner, you are able to put the first bike back to stock, then reset the device and use the same device on your next bike, with a simple and low cost transfer fee.
  • ANY ISSUES? We can resolve nearly anything remotely really quick with our engineering staff.

Highly recommend this product!

Easy installation and great customer service. Bike feels completely different than before. Acceleration and power are drastically improved across all RPM ranges in every gear! If you own a V2 and haven't tried BT software yet, I'd highly recommend giving it a shot!!!
