Angry Bike in coma after first service :(

I got the first service done yesterday, got the new map installed (#46) and it ran very smooth (no flat spot around 9k or torque spike at 10k). Went for a ride and after about 30 miles of riding, the bike lost power, oil pressure light came on, orange RPM light came on and the bike almost stalled (I was in the passing lane doing 80mph). Power came back, bike started accelerating and then lost power again. This happened 3 times within 30 seconds, after which I pulled over in the breakdown lane.

Turned the ignition off, turned it back on, fired it up, engaged first gear and the engine shut off. The oil pressure light was on along with the orange RPM light. Tried several times and same thing happened. Had to finally get a tow truck to get it back home. Will take it to the dealer first thing tomorrow morning.

Is this the beginning of Italian troubles? This is my first Italian bike and in the last 18yrs that I have been riding, my bikes have never broken down!

Wow even for an Italian bike that is terrible. You have my condolences. But this is one of the reasons why I never buy first year machines...especially if they are Italian. Hope it's nothing serious and gets sorted out fast!

Failed oil pressure switch maybe ? Did you have a look at your oil level ?

It could be the pressure switch, since the oil level is indeed correct.

Is it the one from the USB drive?
I can´t find it...

BTW: the update of the USB drive doesn´t work.
After minutes of waiting the message occurs: "Unable to update"

Sounds like an electrical issue (poor connector, humidity in between...)
Hope this get sorted soon...
