Pretty is as pretty does, I say. Of course, I've got a V-Strom, which is no beauty, either. The Strada sounds like the bike I was after when i bought the 'Strom. Of course, the Strom was, what, $3500 less? Hmm, that'll buy a lot of upgrades. Of course, it still won't be a Ducati.

Ditto.



I am just about ready to change off the OEM barely-legal knobbies on my GS Adventure, and I'd really like to know something about other high-end tires for the BMW than the Tourances.



Bring Or Imperial Personage Sidebars, plebian.

Okay, to be fair the whole Sport/Ugly (Adventure) category yields no motorcycle that hasn't felt the wrath of the ugly stick. But "harsh" coming from MO staff? The very staff that condones, even encourages ranting and raving? That's an oxyMOron. MO has raised it staff and hit me with it...whack! Help! Someone call the MOlice!

My understanding is that the MSRP for the Multistrada will be $11,395.

Redefines butt-ugly. Looks like design ideas were faxed in from all over the world, then pasted together by a legally blind person. Sales may climb as high as 10 units. ALL IN FRANCE.

This bike is starting to grow on me. I know Ducati has some sexy women I'd love to have a one night stand with, (999 please!) but I could actually see myself having a long-term relationship with this gal. One of those "not that pretty until you get to know her" types. I'm interested.

I know one thing for sure about this bike and that's : You will not need to carry any theft insurance on it.

I'm going against the grain. I like it and have since I saw the first photo years ago. Some are scoffing at this machine and giving it the "roll it in flour and go for the wet spot" treatment. Is it the fairing that offends everyone so much? I think the rest of the mechanicals look darn good, if you appreciate that sort of thing. This bike is different, makes a statement of it's own, and according to Yossef, it kicks arse.



How's this to prove my insanity: This is the first Duc that I'd actually consider buying.
