THAT'S why.
Sure, but a Ducati Multistrada 1200 is 480 lbs. wet and with a full tank, ABS, traction control, electronic suspension - it handles like a superbike and goes like a bat out of hell.

You can get a loaded S, put a full system on it (save another 15lbs or so and get a sound that will give you permaboner), have ever more top spec components than the MTS R (not to mention much higher tech all around) and still spend $15k less...
