Sounds interesting, but my current shock ECU crapped out with the DES preload error and had to be replaced. It was done under warranty, but as I recall otherwise it was pretty expensive. I bet this one ain't cheap either, but its a nice option to have if I had to replace the shock ECU again.
About 300 Euro if I recall from postings elsewhere, so really not that bad at all. The best news here is that Ohlins is developing the system. That suggests that the "DES" Ohlins equipped bikes will not be orphaned.
At $500 (or even 600) the Ohlins is a viable option for anybody who wants the upgrade or has had their existing OEM "SCU" take a crap out of warranty.

I'm happy they did it and could see it in my future if I needed to buy one.
