Multistrada streetfighter I built a few years back. I agree that streetfighters are built, not bought.

There are quite a few with over 100,000 miles...ones powered by the air-cooled motors are all I'm aware of though. I'm sure PhilB will chime in here. I believe he's over 200K now on his 1993 Monster...

1000 has more power for sure, but the 900 has plenty for a street bike IMO. The 900 is also "lumpier"...feels more like a motorcycle to me, not that the 1000 doesn't though. The main probem with the...

There isn't anything wrong with how the Hypermotard (and assuming the new Hyperstrada) handles, I just think the SMT handles a lot better. I think it handles a lot better than the MTS1200 as well....

A 750cc air-cooled Ducati twin isn't a bad starter bike. It has about the same power as the later 620 motors. My 1st bike was a Monster 620...wasn't a bad learner bike at all.

I think traction control is unnecessary on the street. You'd have to be really ham-fisted to spin those bikes up. Just get whatever bike you really want.

Sold because I wanted something more comfortable for touring/commuting in our crappy Seattle weather. Still my favorite Ducati though, and the 900 motors are my favorite as well.
