It definitely doesn't like small throttle openings at low revs - inconsistent response & stumbling, especially when cold. Some people have gone to a lot of time & expense remapping their way around that; I just adapt my riding style around it. As far as feeling rough/vibration, it's an L-twin. It's a big part of why I bought the bike in the first place: I was tired of the turbine-like I-4 Japanese experience, wanted rumble without the Harley baggage.

The L-twin will smooth out and hum right along happily at 4,500-5,000. That's where I tend to cruise. I have a 1250 Bandit that can be lugged as low as 2,500 without complaint, but even w. that I stay at 3k+. Just need to remap your thinking about what rpm works for this bike vs. your past experiences w. different engines.

Enjoy the new bike!
Thanks man, its must be rough to be ducati lol. I will Keep the bike as it is and not remapping it anytime soon
