Seriously? Your in the eu so we have the same model but I am not getting a consistent down shift at any rpm.

The only time it works is when I downshift immediately after coming off the throttle which is a little pointless. If I leave it a second or 2 it wont down shift. It also does not blip.

Congratulation on your purchase. Your photo is also very nice.
Every modern bike with a slipper and ride by wire will downshift without the clutch to a certain extent. Both my current Panigale and Monster do as long as I don't have any torque applied. This does not mean it's built for that purpose.

Congrats on your new bike. Now, that you have ridden it, can you confirm the DQS? Does it blips? As far as I know from reading blogs and press releases, it does not have DQS for down, but you have it, I don't.
Let us know

Contradicting statement there. I think you mean DQS up only, no autoblip.

The auto-blip is mandatory for a properly functioning clutch-less down shift as it needs to rev-match.
Without it, you would have to close the throttle which defeats the purpose as it's just as fast to stay on the gas and use the clutch.

The 2018 959 Corse is DQS Up only. This is well "undocumented" by Ducati.
The Corse has the same electronic package as every other and previous 959.
Differences are limited to: Paint, Ohlins and Li-ion battery. That's it.

DJ Shrug - Yes, I stand corrected. I actually physically proved that to myself during this morning's ride.

Well, does that mean that I can clutchlessly downshift on 959 when no throttle is applied? Without any long term damage?

The local dealer told me that 959 has only Up DQS. Whereas the SuperSport S has both Up and Down DQS. However, when you downshift (on SSS) the throttle must be closed (instructed by the local dealer and confirmed in practice).

Always use the clutch and revmatch when downshifting.
