The Riding Modes are programmed to instantly vary the engine's Power Mode and suspension setup, in addition to the ABS, DTC and EBC levels. The available modes, Race, Sport and Wet, are the result of the combination of highly advanced dedicated technologies. The rider atop the 1199 Panigale can choose among three different pre-set configurations (Riding Modes) that best adapt to the riding style or conditions of the trajectory. The Riding Modes make it possible to instantly modify the power delivered by the engine (Power Mode), the activation levels of the ABS (when present), DTC, DQS and EBC, the graphics on the instrument panel and, on the "S and R" version, the suspensions setup (DES). The available configurations for the 1199 Panigale include Race, Sport and Wet, with the rider left to customise the pre-configured settings of each Riding Mode as he pleases.
The Ducati Traction Control (DTC) monitors control of the slipping of the rear tyre and operates on the basis of eight different levels of interaction, each of which has been programmed to respond to a different tolerance to rear slipping. Each Riding Mode is assigned a pre-set level of activation. Level 8 indicates an activation of the system at the detection of the slightest slipping, while Level 1, reserved for very expert riders, has a higher tolerance and thus a less invasive intervention of the system.
