Here's a few more photos that popped up over at Top Speed:

Yikes! With those looks KTM may find a few more customers for the 2010 990SMT, it now looks conservative. Who would have thought? I don't know why Ducati insist on making bikes for this segment look so controversial. Maybe they are afraid if they built a great looking sport touring ride fewer riders would pony up for their Superbikes??? It's sad.

No complaints with the "old" MS. How about a little refresh with the newer-gen 696/1100 engines?

I guess everyone wants a BMW GS or something like it.

You can bet I'm going to do everything I can to get that 7500 miles knocked out my first year on my recently purchased Multistrada.

More shots there...

Honestly the bikes in this class horrify me (the thought of people taking that much weight and power offroad with what amount to gnarly street tires scares me), but I am still interested to see where this goes. Might be cool if they have some more touring-friendly maintenance intervals on this one. I'm mostly interested to see what it looks like uncloaked.

Seeing those stupid sportbike 17" front wheels makes me laugh.

It doesn't look like it will be any more versatile than the current Multi.

Probably because the mods refuse to put this thread over in Road warriors, where it belongs. It became apparent months ago that the "Strada Aperta" was nothing more than the 2010 Multistrada, not some kind of GS competitor. The pictures just show that a good rider can take any bike off-road, which we already knew.
