I am really eyeing this as my next bike. I am coming from a bmw GS that I rode 99.9% on twisting paved roads and used for day/short touring events. I put on about 8,000 miles a year and with the bmw I never really cared how many miles I piled on it. I understand the 15k service interval but wanted some real info from owners that are racking up the miles on a 2010-2013 multistrada.
Thanks for your help.
1. No it does not but you can have them (Ducati Performance part) installed. $$250-$300 for the grips plus 2hrs+ to install.
2. Yes, kind of, but keep a dealership close by just in case. That and an extended warranty.
They are great bikes.
