Default Re: Ducati Limited Sport 1000 Special Edition Released.

I got to sit on one last week. Felt great. I've got to go back and take them up on the test ride offer. I must have heard the price wrong, under 9K for the non sport. Also I'm pretty short and was worried about the saddle height, it's lower than you think. I almost wish I hadn't sat on it. I'm trying to figure out how to come up with the money even before riding it. I don't need it, but I want it.... There is a write up in this months Cycle World and of course the write here in the reviews.

I really enjoyed mine but coudn't get the airflow worked out with a couple of screen changes. I'm 6'3" and didn't enjoy the shoulders being tossed about above 70.

I think the new 1100 is going to be sweet and have considered a second look. The used market is really good for the buyer too.

Sexiest bike I've seen in months... I'm drooling and reminiscing about my cafe bike days. A Ducati I'd want to ride regardless of whether it's comfy... I'll keep the Hypermotard or S4RS for that.

Default Re: Multistrada is great fun

I just got back from Italy, where I spent a week riding the little Multistrada 620. That was a great bike for the tight roads we were riding. My primary bike is the ST3, and when I purchased that bike I also considered the MTS but couldn't wrap my head around the looks. While I still don't like the way that the MTS looks, it was a brilliant bike. Upright position gives good visibility, wide bars give good handling on tight hairpin curves, and I had several 10 hour days with no pains in my wrists, bum, or back. A very relaxed upright riding position.



I would love to get the Hypermotard, but initial reports is that this is not the most comfortable bike. For comfort, all-around practicality, and good handling, get the Multistrada 1100S. If you need to carry stuff, get the top box, and you'll be able to filter through anything.
