Ducati invents: A REALLY COOL VSTROM!! And they have declared it: "the Crown Jewel of the Ducati company."

Congrats Ducati; you figured out people will buy a versatile, powerful, sportbike/touring/SUV combo bike. I'm willing to do a long time test and sell the new bike to the VStrom community if it meets or exceeds the VStrom's capabilities.

Well we do know that unlike the Vstrom, you can look at it without a blindfold.

The one thing the Ducati will never be able to match is the ability to make a viewer of the bike lose their lunch at first sight.

I thought thats what the original Multistrada did to all of us when it first came out. Unless the Disney "Blackhole" robot design has grown on us over the years...

You know, with that hideous OEM windshield removed, the VStrom looks pretty good!

The Ducati website has the new Multi service intervals at a very reasonable 15,000 miles (24,000 km). It's about time!

Ducati - Multistrada 1200 arrives with more "strada" between major services

I was really hoping for a demo ride at Bike Week, but it appears Ducati isn't doing that this year.

Damn!
