Description

2018-2024 DUCATI V4 (ALL MODELS)

**STAGE 2 IS A FEATURE ADD-ON TO STAGE 1. STAGE 1 PURCHASE IS REQUIRED FOR STAGE 2 PURCHASE**(CLICK HERE TO SEE STAGE 1 DETAILS)


WHAT DOES STAGE 2 INCLUDE?

  • Lower gear throttle torque limiters removed
  • Deceleration fueling strategy adjusted
  • Faster quickshifter
  • 1:1 throttle response
  • First gear RPM limiter changed
  • Refined per-cylinder tuning
  • Maximum throttle monitor threshold raised
  • Knock control system revised

Anyone that has the Akrapovic or Termi up-maps will say the bike feels a lot more lively than stock and our stage 1 even better than that. Beta testers and our own R&D reveal a noticeable improvement over our Stage 1 flash with our new and revised Stage 2 mapping.


HOW DOES THIS HELP YOUR DUCATI?

  • Lower gear throttle torque limiters removed for full power and RPM without intervention of timing retard. Gears 1-2 in for V4 / V4R and 1-4 in Streetfighter / Multi.
  • Deceleration fueling strategy adjusted to get rid of twitchy, notorious Ducati feel. The bike feels smoother overall and has the driveability of an inline 4 cylinder.
  • Faster quickshifter from reduced "kill" times. The lag in shifting is gone and the bike really cracks into gears.
  • 1:1 throttle response gives you a more lively experience riding the bike. Not only is OEM throttle lag reduced but power is also greater in tip-in throttle and light-to-light acceleration. A more precise throttle means better control in turns as well.
  • First gear RPM limiter raised from the OEM 13,000 RPM.
  • Refined per-cylinder tuning for better AFR (air/fuel ratio) over the entire RPM band. Optimized for track use to be more aggressive than Stage 1.
  • Maximum throttle monitor threshold raised from 83% to 100% in all modes. Higher torque threshold means more overall power and a more responsive feel.
  • Knock control system revised to filter out engine noise or vibration. Only true knock is detected by the sensor.

Any exhaust on the V4 platform, no matter the model, will have a horrible AFR with an exhaust system. The bike will spike lean and the power suffers largely. The factory mapping also includes other restrictions Stage 2 removes. The extended RPM limiter really helps at the track to reduce shifts and keep your bike in the powerband.

V4R Stage 1 vs Stage 2

Below is a Ducati V4 Streetfighter to show you how heavy the restrictions are in first gear. We found that the V4 Streetfighter is by far the most restricted of the V4 models. One of the main reasons you get a Streetfighter is to ride in urban areas with significant stop and go. Stage 2 adds power back and removes restrictions to give you a truly invigorating and visceral experience you've come to expect from Ducati.

Below is the same V4 Streetfighter as above, except now we tested second gear. The restrictions are huge. After Flashing to Stage 2 it's a completely transformed bike, as you can imagine by the graph below.

THE BT MOTO HANDHELD TUNER


WHAT IS A HANDHELD TUNER AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HAVING ONE?

Thoroughly tested by our own engineers, not just for its function but also durability.  We purposefully dropped this thing about 100 times just to make sure if you accidentally dropped it, it would still be a usable device.

So why buy it when you can just send in your ECU for flashing and spend less? Let's see the breakdown.

  • 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, you flash your bike.  You never miss a day of riding and no effort removing the ECU.
  • 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 fuels.  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 an exhaust 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.
  • GO BACK TO STOCK ANYTIME - Not only can you store multiple race maps, you can also flash the original, stock file back into the bike at any time and for any reason.

St-2 Really wakes up My Streetfighter V4

If you want your bike to live up to its full potential, this is the tune. I bought the tune for the additional power and getting rid of the lower gear restrictions and it delivered in spades. What really surprised me was the new found rideability! After the tune I went for a ride in traffic and city streets to get to my favorite set of twisties, riding in traffic is where the surprise came in. It is so much more "streetable" than the stock (Ducati Akra) tune. Low speed fueling feels spot on with no more of the bucking that these bikes do at low speed low RPM. The tune turned the streetfighter into a Pro MMA fighter, smooth and consistent and really punches hard when you crack the throttle. When playing in the twisties, power delivery is so much more consistent and stable, at a 7/10 pace (remember this is on the street) the bike was so much faster through the entrance, apex and exit, due to the new fuel management characteristics it is really is confidence inspiring. This is because of the consistent and stable power delivery. My 2020 Streetfighter V4 is more fun to ride now than my bone stock 2023 Panagali V4. If you are looking for a bang for your buck performance mod, THIS IS IT.

Violently Breathtaking

While currently working at a Ducati dealership, I have heard from plenty of customers, and even myself question, "Yes, its fast. But how can I make it faster?" Because of my training with Ducati Performance accessories, the first and only thing I would say is "Get the Akro pipe and do the Performance flash. Solves your issues." While that may be the case for the normies and casuals that cant even ride their bike to the full potential, my real customers and myself included, want to turn our V4 platforms into track maniacs, street rippers, and to experience these motors in the most visceral way possible. Well that brings me to the review part of this. How would you like to keep the ease of riding such a powerful motorcycle, but add so much BHP that even experienced riders need to be careful with the throttle. Quick and snappy DQS, revised per-cylinder mapping, AND IT DOESNT DIE WHEN I AM GOING LESS THAN 20 MPH! So smooth, and I cannot stress this enough, VIOLENT acceleration. Its not just a tune that make the pipe run a little more rich or lean, it is re-teaching your Ducati how to produce as much power as humanly possible. And for the streetfighters, you will notice the biggest improvement. The Akro flash from Ducati does NOT remove the torque limiters in 1st-4th gear. This BT stage 2 does. It's immaculate. Its peaceful and easy when I want the bike to be calm in rough downtown conditions, but full throttle, especially in 1st-3rd, I am still getting used to the raw strength of acceleration. Power is extremely predictable, and dare I say more confidence inspiring on the circuit. The wheel just wont stay down, and my traction control screams at me. Its so fun. So much fun. If you just want what is the best, most power, most comfortable, easiest to use, and most importantly the most customizable flash that still allows you to use the rider modes on the bike, you need the BT Flash. Get stage 1 if you don't have an exhaust yet, but if you do (I really like the Arrow titanium system. Again, I work for Ducati who makes the Akro, but this arrow is outstanding), then purchase the stage 2 and go have fun. Nothing will be able to touch you. (unless there is another guy out there with a BT Flash haha!) They do say the best results happen with the Akro exhaust, but I couldn't run away from the sound of the arrow. And the price. ONLY DOWNSIDE. I noticed with my specific tune, and it could be because of my elevation (roughly 5000-5800 Ft) I have an inconsistent Idle in cold tune and hot tune. I would like to think there is a solution, but it doesn't get in the way of the ride whatsoever. Just irks me a little.

the best

BrenTunning is by far one of the best motorcycle tuning expert in the USA, nay the world. I had to get a ECU flash on my Ducati Panigale V4R after I installed the Akrapovic full racing system exhaust. I wasn't able to get the factory ducati upmap, but brentuning provided me with an alternative solution. Very positive experience dealing with the sales team at BT Moto and very professional as well. Response time were very fast and they were very patient in assisting me through the tuning process. I would give them a 6 stars if I could and I highly recommend Brentuning to all motorcycle enthusiast looking to get a aftermarket ECU tune that is just as good as factory, nay better. ;)
