Was at a local Ducati dealer earlier today and they indicated that 2009 looks to be the LAST year for the Multistrada....

It will be replaced by a newly named bike In 2011 which will have a 21" front wheel targeted to better compete with the GS....

To be continued...

The Multistrada shouldn't be in a forum entitled 'Beasts'.

It's too good and nice for that.

I take mine on a 200+ km route through some twisty wadi roads out here in Saudi every weekend with a bunch of guys on fast BMW's.

They usually leave me behind but I don't care. I'm still learning the road, the ropes and the bike is happy between 4 & 6,000 rpm.

This is around 75 to 90 mph in top and the bike feels really good in the sweeping bends. It dives into corners like nothing else. Great handling.

Yep, this has been known for a while. New model will be called the Strada Apuerta (Open Road) and has been confirmed by Ducati. I was hoping to see it show up in Milan but not ready yet. So to calm my disappointment from the Milan show I bought a very nice, very slightly used 2007 Multi.

The 21" wheel is pure speculation at this point. I would expect a 19" like the GS.

2011!
I thought the Apuerta was a 2010 thing! I can't wait 'til 2011.

I've got my 07 R1200GSA Hausfrau but what I really need is a sexy Italian mistress.

So, the BMW goes to ebay (in the spring) and we'll see what we can find in the way of an MTS.

Keep the posts and pics coming boys - it's a loooong winter here in the northeast.

Cheers,
Mark

2009 is the last year for the Multi so that makes the 2010 an Apuerta but I was never good at math.

My dealer has a used black 05 that is very nice. Thinking about trading my 950SE for it. Always loved them Ducati's and Triumphs!

Always loved these bikes, kinda cuz they are like a punch in the face, cosmetically..like the orig Buell Ligtning or Dodge Viper was...just against the "normal grain" of what consumers expect..... but I am short, and even shorter in the inseam (5'4" tall, and 29" inseam).

Is there room to slide the forks up thru the yokes about 1.5" without contact with the handlebars? Also what yr did the wet clutch get introduced?
I really like the power of the new 1100. Sampled the motor in a new Monster. Nice.
Price...not so nice :(
How do you guys find the maintainance/reliability of the MS? Finicky or delicate?

I bought a '05 1000S in September of '08 and it has been my primary bike since then. Love it. The upgraded suspension is a marvel. P.O. did some nice upgrades that I appreciate, like Michelin Pilots, heated grips and bles him, the comfort seat.

I love the way the dry clutch jangles at a stop light. Wish I could afford a set of Teri's.

Yeah, I am another one.

That said, nice bike.

Don’t believe the advertizing from Ducati about lower maintenance costs. My 04 Supersport was cheaper to maintain then my new 1100 multi. Even with the higher mileage between intervals.

It might even out once I hit 125,000 on the odometer. It’s a scam, and I am very disappointed with Ducati for pushing that.

Other than that I love my multi. Its comfy, fast and RED! I put 15k on her last year, a lot of 400+ mile days. Once I put the corbin seat on I was very happy.

Here's a couple of questions for MS owners:

What luggage do you use, if any, and would you recommend it?

What tyres do you use for a more touring than scratching set up?
