‘New’ Ducati Supermono ECU remap and Dyno set up

By 15th April 2011 Ducati, ECU Remap, On the Dyno, Road Bikes

Now this is a little special; it started life back in the early ‘90s as a Supermono (which were Ducati race-only single-cylinder, or one half-a-V-twin and rare as hens’ teeth). They gathered a very special reputation and Ducati Supermono specialist and engineer Al Wager has been meticulously building ‘new’ versions for the road for the last few years; using the original crankcases he adds a Testrastretta cylinder head which takes them up from 550cc to 600cc. He also uses a modern wiring harness (including a 999 ECU) and clocks, but retains the stock frame and crankcases while all the bodywork is re-made in pure pre-preg carbon fibre.

We’ve been involved with Al and his project for the last four years and have helped with Dyno work and fuelling. Now, with our ECU remapping system we can actually program the ECU, sort out all the warning codes and immobilizer issues, and not have to run a Power Commander.

This is a fantastic bit of kit – as it stands from our perspective it’s a work in progress but makes 70bhp and handles like you wouldn’t believe. Watch this space…

Lithe and incredibly powerful, Ducati only made the Supermono for a few years, for race use only a long time ago. Lucky Al Wager has other ideas...
