Rivale throttle issues during aggressive riding

Hi guys,
I've had my Rivale now for about 6 weeks. Had the first service done and she now has around 3000km on the clock (having a lot of fun obviously).
I have noticed that the throttle becomes erratic during extended periods of aggressive riding.. well this is the only time it has been badly noticeable.
It feels like it's bogging down. This generally happens when exiting a corner, I jump on the rev's and nothing, back off and twist again and will get the intended throttle response.

So far it has only really happened to me when I am on the same section of road, its a long winding section which is high altitude.
which makes me think it may either be due to air density or its just a coincidence and its actually due to the riding which I am doing through that section.

I'd love to know if anyone else has noticed anything similar with their MV. I'm on the latest map and recently had the throttle itself swapped out by the workshop (which did not fix it).

Thanks in advance

Been having some issues with mine lately!
Jerkiness at low rpm, also it has been feeling like its surging at times.

I've had the throttle swapped out 2x now, it's at the dealer for it's 3rd. Not even a yr old yet, its getting ridiculous!!
Starting to lose confidence in it....

Same here. Realize I just need to downshift the bitch. Solved all my problems.

While my Ducs just chug below 5K RPMs (4K on the 2-valve) and get through it, the MV triple will let you know when you need to drop it down a gear or two.

Ask your dealer to check for air leaks at the throttle bodies, there's a thread on this topic in this section, might be worth looking at.

Turn off the traction control and see if it still does it.

Yeah, sadly this is'nt a gearing issue, it happens no matter what gear you are in. Wish it was though.

I could try that, if it removes the issue then i would need to ride around with TC off?

That would be the logical conclusion.

Just be carefull, riding around with TC turns off may result in your gear lever bending
