#1, I just don't get it...and I own one. A few months ago I was sent an online survey by Ducati asking me to rate my Multi 1200 after 2 years, and what things I would like changed. I told them I love the bike, but ditch the beak! They didn't listen to me apparently.

Well my friends, the new shock did not fix the problem. The mechanic now thinks it's the wiring. Not sure how that got missed but that's the way it goes sometimes.

Wilson's is being as accommodating as possible. So news as it develops.

had the same thing. When i took mine in they just wanted to change the shock. Ducati UK made them switch it out and then again with the ECU to eliminate which part was wrong. I believe the dealer just wanted to change both parts to save time. Turns out the shock was OK but they changed the ECU.
All is now well.

Good luck. At least it is not some "never heardof" problem that Ducati are not aware of. Should be perfect once they get it sorted.

Try this, for two pics and more links.

These developments probably deserve a new thread. But in Beasts or Road Warriors?

DES error on my bike as well. Was in the shop exactly one full month. First thought it was the suspension ecu, then the other ecu, then the shock, then perhaps the wiring, ended up being the display dash. Me thinks they didn't have a clue, the shop or Ducati. Between this issue, the still noexistant rear brake after the replacement parts installed, and the clutch bleeding out overtime, this 20k bike is more problematic than my 1st gen Buell. That is saying alot, as that was the biggest POS ever produced. At least the Buell blew up and put itself out of its misery, lol.

Wow just checked out the 2013 model.

Some changes but nothing major I would say. Sky hook suspension looks to me like Ohlins got to be a high cost of overhead for Ducati and Sachs sold them on something new they been working on. I bet its damn good, cant wait to try it.

Glad I got the Ohlins though.

i'm glad i got the Ohlins too in that i'm not into the "adaptive" side of things just yet, at least not for this motorcycle (maybe for a tourer). having said that, if it's WP or Sachs behind the manufacturing then the kit should be pretty good. as for the looks, the grey fork tubes look just ok to me.

Well, the modified motor for 2013 sounds great and the front-rear integrated ABS sounds great in theory if too complicated in practice.

The Skyhook suspension sounds horribly complicated in theory and practice, with sensors everywhere waiting to fail.

As for the quality of the new Sachs fork, check this video, from about 16 seconds in:



You can see the fork shunting the whole front of the bike up and down as it hits a few mid-corner bumps. Just what the Ohlins fork wouldn't do. (Well, this is very much speculation but it doesn't look good.)

BTW: for those interested, there is more detail on the new models here at moto.it. Doubtless other sites will follow shortly.

The low-down:

- twin-plug heads with re-aimed injectors give better combustion and 7Nm more torque. A Panigale-like air injector after the exhaust port helps clean up unburnt hydrocarbons (and presumably allows a slightly richer mixture at low speeds).

- three-stage ABS includes an enduro mode where the ABS function at the front turns off after a preset time in seconds (no info yet on the rear).

- the Skyhook suspension reads sensors on the lower triple, rear subframe, fork leg and swingarm, and takes in info from the Traction Control accelerometer. Parameters vary with the riding mode and load (solo, with pillion, etc) selected.

- LED headlamp.

- one-hand on-the-fly windscreen adjustment.

- progressive-rate rear spring.

- same instrument panel.

- no cruise control.

Non-S model uses same Marzocchi-Sachs suspension as currently.

I can see myself going for a 2013 Standard for the new motor and braking, and adding an Andreani fork kit and manual Ohlins TTX shock. (Or sticking with the Ducati I have, and adding something more explicitly tour-ey.)
