    I posted in the Multistrada section, as an MTS1200 owner but this topic will have wider interest;-)

    Sorry for the lack of updates!


    A service / diagnostics tool has been in development for some time now (last update I have was end of August) and as things stand at the moment should be on the market before the end of the year. I don't know the cost right now but expect it to be around us$250 to us$300 - not a small sum to spend but it's capabilities will be extensive! ;-)


    Not surprisingly development has taken some considerable time not least because of all the microcontrollers for suspension, ABS and traction control etc on the MTS1200 and Diavel and the launch of the Panigale threw a spanner in the works as the aim now apparently is for the same tool to be compatible with the MTS1200, Diaval and Panigale. The DTC, ESA and all those electronic controls are the same for both MTS1200 and Diavel but not the same on the 1199 Panigale I'm told, making the integration of the systems difficult and so setting back the release of the tool a little.


    I will update as soon as I know more.

    Given that the 2013 MTS will have a new Sachs semi-active suspension system with a whole new raft of electronic complications, will that delay the project even more, I wonder?

    The new diagnostic/service tool is past the bench test stage with real bike testing is in progress. Testing on DP ECUs for the MTS1200 and Diavel is also under way.
    If 1199 ECU is not too different in programing, then the tool will be able to take care of it too. Looks like a January launch once the DP ECU is worked out but only for Diavel and MTS1200 up to 2012.
    Once I have a more definitve date for the launch I will post an update.


    For the newer, 2013 MTS1200 with SkyHook suspension, it will be at least a year, as per "gentleman's" agreement between factory and the manufacturer for the tool to be able to check the suspension, but, the rest of the regular functions should be the same.

    Final push!....

    Diagnostic tool for Mitsubishi ECU's - MTS1200, Diavel and Panigale:

    Ok we're almost there but for the R&D work to be completed sooner rather than later you need to show your interest by sending an email....

    Help me give Technoresearch R&D a push; we just need more people writing in directly asking about the new tool, to show R&D and management that the tool has a market, real market and that people will purchase it; Technoresearch have recorded 50 people that have joined the mailing list plus maybe another 25 from general/sales inquiry through their website apparently, regarding the Mitsubishi tool, this, from all around the world.....so we need more ;-)

    If it’s only that amount of people, R&D will not push forward at the pace they should.

    Their website has a contact tab, it can be used in General Inquiry or Sales Inquiry or Technical Support.

    Either under the Sales > Direct tab or Support > Contact

    Contact Us :: TechnoResearch Inc :wink:

    :tongue: lol ...........and you to mine in response Matt - yet to be proved but from what I can see the wait will be worth it :D

    .....and of course until there's enough 3yr+ aged bikes out there (i.e. out of warranty and more owners either servicing themselves or using an independent Ducati workshop) not that much demand so in that respect the timing makes sense.
