Yeah, desmo is romatic and all but totally not required on a NON-racebike.
This bike is meant to compete with 1200gs from BMW.
I liked the multistrada and damn near bought one but heh it has to be practical....I ride daily and commute is where I am caring dog.....and i have big........hands........try getting the key in and out over and over.....bar gets in the way...stupid..........

When I dropped my desmo in for a valve check my mechanic said... "I'll check it but it won't need adjusting. They're not like japanese bikes".
Didn't need adjusting. They bed in quick then don't change. I'd take desmo every time.
As for those pictures above. That is a fugly piece of crap. If it looks like that the elefant is staying.
