Why can't Italians figure out metal alloys by now? Almost every Ducati, and the very few MGs I've seen have all aged way beyond their years due to corrosion and discoloration of their metalwork. I was looking over a Multistrada a few weeks ago, it couldn't have been more than 18 months old, but it looked like an 80's Honda somebody left parked on the beach for a few years. Inexcusable.
