Interesting question. Having just written a large article about the Superquadro engine for the next Pronto, which will be dropping through the letterboxes soon, it is actually a servo-assisted clutch controlled by an electronic brain making it a kind-of electronic slipper clutch.
I'm sure you would be able to convert it to a dry clutch - the 848 has a Ducati pack which you can do the same (See this page) - but it's not just a case of swapping one hub for another as there's a lot more to it!
