No, the Multistrada is being discontinued and replaced with the bike tentatively called the Strada Aperta. Originally it was reported to have a large front wheel but Ducati evidently changed their minds.

We'll know for certain come November.

That's an air cooled motor. Final product is already confirmed to be liquid cooled.

Pity. That mock-up looks like a praying mantis.

Which is a good thing, obviously

It's not ugly, well, not the original one. It has 'character'.

Best 'real road' bike I've ever had.

I saw a white police version between Mugello and Florence once upon a time.....that actually looked kind of slick.

Difficult to say how much of that bodywork is just a disguise for moto-paparazzi.

They are a great bike.

Looks like the new one has binned the old air cooled lump. Shame.
