Yes, I rode one. Not my type of bike but it is a very good bike and certainly looks better than Ducati's last attempt at a feet forward bike.

This thread has actually served a purpose. I'm visiting D.C. and there was one of them parked in the Target parking garage at Columbia Heights. Because of this thread I know exactly what it was from a distance, I felt so smart.
Don't sell yourself short- I'm sure you'd have known it was ugly without any outside help.

I didn't say what it was notable for.

I have a friend with an MS1100. He loves that bike, it's hardly every in his garage. (Mostly because it's usually at the dealership waiting for parts...)

regardless, i think the early multistrada's are the most beautiful motorcycle ever manufactured - when compared to the new diavel. the diavel easily takes the prize as the most hideous ugly duc ever, imo.

I won't quote the pic because I don't want to look at it again but that Indiana is uglier than a V Strom.

We can turn it back into a car tyre thread if you want

And my 2c ... the Diavel is way worse. The Indiana just looks like a generic cruiser really.... if you hadn't told me it was a Ducati, I wouldn't have known. The Diavel on the other hand
