I was at the dealer yesterday and noticed that a couple of the scramblers had a relocated evap canister to the right side of the airbox. It looks like Ducati also redesigned the plastic panel to hide the canister. Much nicer than what came on mine. I removed mine since it was hideous, but I wouldn't mind installing the updated canister setup. Has anyone converted their early style canister to this new style?

Did you happen to snap any pictures? I did a search but wasn't able to find the configuration you are referencing. Would be really interested in seeing it. I also removed the ugly canister on my 2015.

I saw the same thing atb the dealer today, completely different design. Glad I don't have one any more.

Just got a 17' Full Throttle after having my insurance company total out my '16 Icon and can confirm! Much prettier and streamlined. But still, I think I want to remove it. :tongue-new:

I wouldn't remove it as it serves a purpose and does not affect performance. The only reason most people removed them on 15's and 16's was because of the terrible placement. Ducati has done a nice job of hiding it on the 2017 models.

Look what just happened yesterday, it just fell off!

And yes, it does make a difference. Not much, but exactly where it needed it. Removing the canister seems to take away the occasional splutter while coming to a stop at an intersection and improves pickup right before you release the clutch when you take off.

My bike did the occasional "COUGH!" (or sometimes flaming out) coming to a near stop at an intersection, and it hasn't done that yet.

Fingers crossed
