I don't think its a throttle glitch, its the gearing. The monsters were known to be a bit snatchy before a sproket change...
Well lets pray It's just a software update that is requires as it costs nothing and be carried out before delivery or via the dealer.

However should it be a sprocket that's a different matter as Ducati would have those manufactured for the Scrambler and will be fitted probably and then up to the new owner to rectify thereafter.

If you look at the forums for the Monster 796 that uses basically the same engine some have fitted throttle tamers or reflashed their ECU themselves. It's a common problem with Ducati's as they make the fuel mixture lean to get through emissions.

Shamone,

Many thanks for the helpful links you posted.

I am hoping with all the negative reports from the journalists they may have addressed the problem and dealt with it at there end.

Poor fueling is a result of laws regarding the Emissions.
I had the same problem with my SF1098.
This was solved with a 14 teeth sprocket,
and a ECU reflash with eliminating the o2 sensor and the exhaust valve.
Now it runs very smooth,even at 2000RPM.
Cheers

Hmm, I'd say fuelling problems are the result of poor design; I've no intention of buying a new bike which requires immediate attention to make it rideable, I'm glad this has been highlighted as a potential issue as I'll be looking out for it on the (long anticipated) test ride.

That's the beauty of buying something older that many can vouch for or warn you of, all the guess work is taken out and all that's left for you to do is make an easy decision :D

This was highlighted by a few of the journalists on the launch, their assessment was it can be mapped out, and sure Ducati would have taken note of the journalists comments as this was the only real negative on the Scrambler.
My MV had a same issue but you learn how to subconsciously compensate for, however later bikes were fine.

The bikes at the launch were most probably pre-production models and there is every chance that the mapping will be tweaked by the time the production bikes hit the showrooms.

Fuelling issues are not a result of poor design, its a result of overzealous regulation. The Panners were having issues because of the charcoal cannister.

If anyone watches MotoGP the issue that JL and the Yammas were having early season
(2014) was similar. Snatchiness derived from fuel rationing...

Lean mix

Pretty much all bikes run too lean these days to meet emissions. Tends to make them run hot and throttle can be snatchy. For those who do not like, a little electronic magic, free flowing exhaust, more air in and voila we should get 90hp and a proper running bike. With trail gears, this is going to be a little hooligan. >:D

Yeah. With milder cams than the 87HP Monster 796, and one throttle body instead of 2, ,I'm thinking the best we'll get out of this will be the low 80s. That's with full exhaust replacement (eliminating the cat) and FI reprogramming

Like others have stated...emissions requirements cause poor fueling, which causes a bike to run lean, which causes poor low speed throttle response. I'm hoping the Termignoni kits with the new map will fix that, or they will upgrade the map at some point.
