Code for this APS defect doesn't appear in the diagnostics. That is also another known problem and why they are happy to replace the throttle assembly on a verbal complaint.

Its amazing how quickly ducati will dismiss claims, knowing that there are common issues with certain parts. Typical dealers attitude. They sell me a bike that runs dangerously lean, i fix it with a rapidbike, and all of a sudden my warranty is void?....
I really hope ducati get their shit together one day

Why would you do it yourself?

Yes. If it is a part likely to fail I would like to see if it makes sense to have a spare and have it with me on weekend rides so as not to get stranded.

Yea I hope they're able to fix because it took about 1000mi for the issue to pop up after they did a reset and cleared it, would hate to get it back and told to come back nextime it pops up

They should honor the warranty regardless of any mods you havd fitted. If not, just go to the fair trading comission.

APS sensor?

These sensor(s) discussed in this thread are mostly all emission related which goes above and beyond normal warranty. Can't remember exactly the coverage but much longer; so those concerned about warranty anxiety you have some peace of mind..

My dealer took around 2 hours. It involves replacing the throttle assembly and the associated loom which you have to dig out from in the bowels of the bike somewhere.

APS / TPS is the same thing. The translation from the Italian is Accelerator, we call it a Throttle. The fault is with the computer becoming unable to read the position of the twist grip.

Before RBW, it would be like the throttle cable intermittently breaking.

Thank you for the informative response. I got the same estimate from the dealer. Also can't do this on the road. Needs a DDS to reset it once replaced. So keeping my fingers crossed I got a good one.
