i love my 2014 rninet, but a mate let me ride his yamaha MT09 the other day and me thinks that a super tune and download of another map may give me the extra squirt that i desire

That sounds great but 20 HP from a tune up and new map … I have my doubts. Ofcourse if you bike is currently horribly out of tune in the first place I guess anything is possible. Seems like a turbo-charger or Nox would be requires for 20…………..…………….Blitz
Don’t listen to the “na-sayers”.
Install “cat-less” headers and get a “Bren-tune”.
That will get you very close to what you are looking for, and these mods. will make your bike run better, cooler, and be much more fun.

Now, wait for the “na-sayers”.
@jpaton I already have the header mods … what is .. and where can I get the “Bren-tune” ? Is this a franchise thing or just one guy …?
Yeah, I get it.
I stopped adding up all the $ I have spent on mods. Because I don’t want to know.
I think the Ducati’s are amazing bikes (had a 2012 1100 Monster EVO), and the newer ones seem to be easier to live with. I could not live with how “finicky “ mine was. But, I sure liked the way she rode.
If you need the HP, I guess you will have to look at something else.
I agree @jpaton Ducati is an amazing bike and among the most beautiful designs ever made in motorcycles … BUT to hear all the negative comments about maintenance, upkeep, tuning and tightening …. That was my experience too…. like a “beautiful” night mare. My major move into Boxers and BMW was completely about upkeep and tuning. Compared to other machines it’s almost nothing. Seven flawless years later (2015 Classic) and going strong … I bough the right bike for me and my needs ……. At my age .. this is my last. It seems as though I get weaker and the bike gets stronger … one day she’ll win and I’ll go out in a giant fire ball .. yeehaw !!!
……………….. every time I push the button she rallies and comes to life pulling me along with Her for the ride of a lifetime ..and what a ride it is ….
Bless you Blitz !
Jpaton ……. So Bren is re-map fuel program. Since I have an older model 9T with out all the “fly by wire” is that map going to improve my ride … this machine has ABS and that’s it ….. old-school sort-of ……
