Just rolled over 16k on my 2011 MTS1200. I am still in love with her.


Hopefully with a few fall trips, I will hit 30k in the first year. I got her in late February.

Do you guys know where I can find a list of torques for the MTS1200S Touring?

I thought I saw it somewhere in the owners manual. But when I went back there both in print and online PDF I could not find that.

Just pulled the trigger...

I'm the proud owner of a 2010 MST. Can you guys give me advice on good tank bags that you've tried and like?

Beautiful bike! I'm thinking I need to buy one after checking out the one set up at Ducati Island at the Indy MotoGP.

How do you like the Arrow pipe and cat eliminator? Did you consider the Termi system?

Glad to see some people accumulating miles. This bike is meant to be ridden. I'd be over 20K miles myself, but I totaled MTS1200 #1 on hoarfrost, had to go to #2 and start the odometer over again...

Thanks! It was a tough call between the Termi system and the Arrow, I decided to give the Arrow system a try and love it. Sounds great! Next I will need to install a Power Commander (stalled twice) and have it tuned for best results. That is something with the Termi system I wouldn't have to do. BTW, the bike is a blast to ride!

The stalling is related to the newness of the motor, many experience the same, it does subside. Regardless, have your shop look into as well. As for the tuning, mine runs even better now with a pair of FatDucs installed which help richen the fuel mix some. My bike runs without the cat converter via a MIVV de-cat mid pipe.

Enjoy yours,

Can you give more info or links to stalling issues? Curious if these are stock bikes or tweaked bikes.

Stock and typically within the first few hundred miles.

Ducati.MS really is one of the best web resources out there, Multistrada.net is good too.

See you there,

Thats good to hear, I have less than 500 miles on the bike and will have the dealer install either the FatDucs or PCV. I need to do a little more research on the two products. Thanks!
