Ducati Diavel Service Manual: Introduction to the "hands free" system

The hands free system allows the rider to start the engine without physically using the ignition key. The ignition key merely has to be in the vicinity of the motorcycle, such as in the rider's pocket, for example, in order to use the vehicle.

Compared to the standard ignition switches the hands free system allows having the hands completely free during usual actions (i.E. Engine ignition/stop, dashboard switch on/off) and engaging/disengaging the steering lock.

The electric steering lock used with the hands free system locks the handlebar either in the fully right or fully left position, offering greater versatility when parking.

The hands free system consists of the following components:

The hands free system is connected to the other computers (nodes) on the motorcycle and to the dashboard via the can line. Through this connection, the system can either enable (key detected and recognised) or disable (key not detected or not recognised - immobilizer function) engine start. Any relevant information messages, such as battery key low warning or no key warning, are displayed on the tank dashboard.
