F3 RC owners

Those of you that already have your bikes can you tell me if it has the quick downshifter or not? Also can you verify that it has the blue dash.

I ordered the MV Corse racing ECU from EVO bikes and they asked me if my bike had these but I haven't picked it up yet.

Thanks

RC comes only with Quickshifter as standard."going up the box"
Dealers are awaiting the code for the ECU to download the Downshift auto blipper as fitted standard to other bikes.

I've been told off Bennetts it's more than a software tweak , the loom is different for the downshifter . This was on my standard F3 800 but there again the RC might have a different wiring loom to mine

Bennetts told me its just the code they need,MV wont release it unless you buy the Exhaust headers.
When i asked why i was told that they said it run better.
I was left puzzed but will ask again when i go in at weekend

Dunno what headers have got to do with a downshifter unless it's incorporated into a race ecu map that needs headers to run correctly ??
I would deffo check with Bennetts again

I will be asking Paul at Bennetts about this as I could do with the down shifter on my RC if at all its possible.

Been to Bennetts today and spoke to Paul.
He explained more about the Downshifter.
I had spoken to Alison last week and was told that MV wouldnt release the code for the ECU unless you bought the headers.
Well Paul explained in more detail and it seems that you have to buy the factory headers to work with the factory ECU which you need to enable the downblipper to work.
Eventually there maybe another option but as of now there isnt.
they have had to buy the kit for their racebike.
