    Fantastic news there is no hardware upgrade!
    Has anybody applied the MSC upgrade in 2013 model to tell us impressions and differences?

    Nobody is going to be able to tell you the difference.
    For anyone to test the before and after means :
    Before - crash when applying the brakes whilst leant over.
    After - not possible because bike was wrecked in first test!

    Just watch the KTM video to see if your bike and your bones are worth the extra €399. I think mine are......:clap

    Can you double check the front wheel size setting?

    Dealers have tried and double-checked it, you can't adjust the wheel size like on the 990's!
    More and more complains about that issue after MSC-Update in german forum...

    This issue has gone very quiet, and I think remains unresolved. Has anyone made any progress with it? I'm keen to get mine done.

    I've had an software update done on my 2013 this week while in for a sidestand recall and the mechanic road tested it and said it was fine. (I'm away until later this week so havent seen the bike or what he was gauging it against)

    The MSC upgrade is back as available now which I assume means they have (hopefully) sorted it out.

    Sorry guys if my question is tooo noob:

    What are the differences between MSC and MTC? And what are the advantage of Bosch MSC in comparison with other Traction control technology applied on Ducati, BMW, Kiwi or etc...

    In short, MSC lets you panic your front brake mid-turn without losing traction or... wait for it... even losing your planned line! Now click the link above and go look at some cool animations and tests on youtube.

    Have a look here..
    Its a fantastic system, it works seemlesly in the background, its great to have this level of safety built in, without it being intrusive.. :D

    Thank you.
    So it sounds more advantage than Traction Control System?!
    Any similar system / technology applying on other brands, i.e. BMW, Honda, Ducati, etc...? Or MSC is the most advanced system to date?

    Yes, it is. No other factory deliver this system at the moment. But I guess they will very soon. (2015 models)
