Surprisingly Ducati Traction Control comes standard, and as we prepared to depart on our morning street ride, I was reminded just how unintuitive it is to adjust. In my haste, I inadvertently set it to #8—the most intrusive setting, meant for riding in the rain. This caused the light on the dash to flicker and the engine to sputter if I so much as thought about turning the throttle while leaned over, so I was thankful that we soon stopped to regroup. There I had the ride leader remind me how to toggle through the settings, selecting #3, which worked much better. This is one area where Ducati really should take a page from rival Aprilia’s book, as that company’s TC is much easier to adjust—plus you can do it on the fly, whereas on the Streetfighter you must be stopped.
