Sorry to hear this. I assume you have a 2010 and it's out of warranty? If not, then take it to your dealer and get it fixed. Beyond that.....this error typically means the servo motor for the rear shock has a problem, and/or the ECU that controls the servo(s) has a problem. If you are out of warranty, your best bet is to work directly with your local Ohlins rep and see if they can guide you through a troubleshooting session to narrow down the possibilities and then just replace the 1 part that has failed vs. randomly replacing large, expensive assemblies (the whole shock vs. just the servo, etc).

Good luck!

Go to a dealer and they will order you new shock under warranty. I'm in the process of doing the same.

Has anyone had a DES error issue on a 2011 model? Or 2010 models are the ones that are mostly afflicted by it.

It means it will happen as soon as your change in settings will require preload adjustment. Even if you are out of warranty have your dealer document and claim it, Ducati may cover it as freewill because they know 2010 bikes are prone to this issue.

Decent shoot out in this month's Cycle World with the Multistrada vs Triumph Explorer, Yamaha Tenere and the Moto Guzzi Stelvio .

Our own Neduro was quoted and pictured.

So how is the overall reliability of the Multi? Duc got most/if not all the stuff figured out? Im mainly concerned on show-stopping electronic issues, tranny/engine problems, fueling issues. Not too concerned nit-picky issues like paint, fit, rattling, etc.

As long things hold-up mechanically/electrically on the long-term, Im a happy camper.

The no-frills ABS-only version (with heated grips) is on my short-list for a purchase in the Oct range.

great choice, both in value and simplicity.....it offers a great platform to improve upon. If you want more, spend more (long with an extended warranty) but it doesn't sound like that is what you're after. If you want the best when it come to upright sport touring then the MTS12 is it.

any tall MTS1200 riders out there?

thinking of trading in my 950SM and R1200RT on a MTS1200 and i recently sat on one at a local dealer. the seating position restricts movement and the leg room is just OK. are any tall MTS1200 owners who have good solutions and have modified the ergos for more legroom or a less restricted seating position? I am 6'5" with bad knees and have a 34" inseam.

I have a 34" inseam (not as tall in the upper body) and haven't found the locked in position a problem. My knees do ache after a while but they do that on just about any bike including an RT.

The general ratio of bar/seat/pegs works well for me and fits me better than the 1050 and 800 Tiger which is the last two bikes I've owned. I did rotate the bars forward a few degrees and that made an improvement.

The other option and one I plan to pursue is to get the taller 'enduro' seat from Ducati.
