Ducati branded DTC offers a choice of eight profiles, or ‘sensitivity levels', each one programmed with a wheel-spin tolerance matched to progressive levels of riding skill, graded from one to eight. Pre-selected levels of intervention are related to appropriate Riding Modes. When DTC is activated, its ECU analyses data sent from front and rear wheel speed sensors to detect the amount of wheel-spin and to evaluate the type of intervention necessary. This intervention is executed in a very smooth way through electronic retardation of the ignition to reduce the engine's torque, until the full grip of the rear wheel has been re-established. DTC can also be deactivated if the rider wishes. DTC levels are factory pre-set in each of the three Riding Modes, but can be individually customised and saved to suit the rider. A "default"option is available to easily return all settings to factory pre-sets.
