Mood: Bloo and Yellow.. and Red now ;)
i think the tech speak may have confused things a little...Ducati have termed all their wet clutches "servo" assisted to highlight the lighter feel. I not aware of any electronic trickery on the clutch actuator itself. It's lighter, but feels/works just like say a 848 with the engine off etc. I haven't seen any valve or such like in the hydraulic circuit from lever to slave..
There is a slipper mechanism in the drum and also the EBC (engine braking control) that will act if the wheel locks out.
Not sure how feasible a dry conversion would be. The ensine casing is much bigger than the 848 and covering a lot more moving parts. Almost Seidici' esque in size. Sure someone will have a go though

The bike still sounds like a Ducati though

.....but better in YELLOW, or Bloo and now even RED you know you want to the best trackday organisers in the UK
