Funny I have been wishing for BMW 1600 but I don't tour so even I can't justify it. I like the feeling of a heavy smooth bike with lots of amenities! But... oh God the Multistrada. I love it. As abundant as the technology is on the Multi the ride is elemental, pure.
Couldn't have said it better, elemental and raw...
The K16 is sooo smooth that it can take away the connection of rider to bike.. Don't get me wrong, that smoothness is so valuable on long days in th saddle and in so many other riding situations but for everyday riding for "escaping" purposes the rawness is the dope .. Ducati has corned the market for sure and I will have one in my garage before year end. Either a Streetfighter and K16 or only MTS but there will be red in th garage.
