Looks like a midget out testing this one. They should get a big guy like me to ride it at least. Maybe I could get a job at Ducati testing experimental bikes???? ohh, its the world as I envision it to be vs my actual world again.
Also wouldnt that silly back fender/spray guard mean a BMW? jk maybe thats to throw you off?

Word has it that it'll sport the 1198 motor, have lots of gizmo's - Traction control, ABS - and be high end price wise.

Nice Tiger-Strom. I think it is back to the drawing board.

Besides the high price, I might be one of the ones that are going to buy one..

1198 motor+ABS+traction control+large tank and durable luggage... and I am in... A souped up Italian Tiger..

I want the upright ergos, love the motor... but want ABS at the very least... and knowing Ducati, Olins available from the factory...

Ducati Traction Control - DTC monitors front and rear wheel speeds to detect rear wheel-spin under acceleration and electronically reduces engine power to restore traction.

Standard on 1198S and 1098R Superbikes.

Makes sense to me.

No wheel-spin for you!!!!

My wish-list exactly. I'd put up with whatever it looks like if they get the details right.

I can only speak for myself. If I had a Ducati with the Testastretta Evoluzione (this is what we're talking about for the new Strada Aperta/Multistrada/whatever they call it, right?), then I would need DTC.

This was where I read they would be water cooled. Not saying they're necessarily the ultimate source of anything though. The wrapped up bike doesn't appear to be, but it's hard to tell.

I am definitely interested in what comes out no matter what.

Sometimes I really don't get the motorcycle companies. These types of adventure bikes should be manly and more militaristic looking, like the first gen Triumph Tiger. Instead they keep softening them up like they expect to sell them to 16 year old girls.

Oh, I see what you mean.

I didn't mean DTC-faster-lap-times, I meant DTC-help-me-not-kill-myself. I see traction control as a safety feature for old men that may not need 180 hp.

Militaristic?

Here's my ride for the Gay Pride parade here in San Fran this year:



Very "Manly" no?

It will definitely be water cooled, likely the 1098 engine tuned for lower end torque.
