Dimsport Evo review
I had the Dimsport Evo installed on my Supersport S. I already have the Ducati Akropovic full exhaust system.
The results were impressive. But before we get there you need to know where I live. Johannesburg, South Africa...at an altitude of 1750m (5750 feet) above sea level. The rule of thumb is that normally aspirated engines loose about 12-15% of their power up here compared with the coast. So 113hp becomes about 99hp or so.
The chart shows that the base (dark blue line) was 93.2hp at 9091rpm and wheel torque of 77.8nm at 7118rpm. The after line (I had to trace it over) was 115.7hp (22.5hp gain) at a slightly lower 8841rpm and 107.1 nm (29.3nm gain) at 7119nm, a 24% and 31% increase respectively. The light blue line can be ignored..that was a whoops, they initially used the wrong Ducati wiring harness and then corrected it.
Of interest is that the extra torque gain is a bit more pronounced at lower rpm...job well done Dimsport.
Top speed on the clock is 244km/h (151mph)...at altitude about the same, but enough. But I would never do that of course.
Charts are objective, but my butt never lies. What that told me was that the engine not only felt more powerful but also smoother and more eager to rev and spin up more quickly.
Fuel consumption...eh who cares...but it doesn't seem to have made it worse...other than my increased keeness to twist the throttle.
Overall it was a success and the results were better than I expected. At a cost of R8500 installed and dyno tuned/tested (USD600, GBP462, EUR535) I think it was well worth it.
