Been on the forum for awhile, this I think is my first post. Long time duc rider. Had 2013 mts base model on order but saw the mts gt this weekend at the atlanta cycle world show and changed my order. Tho I really would rather have red, the GT has all the goodies. The little changes I noticed. the new raise lower of the windscreen is so easy and can be done one handed while riding.

So I'll be around picking up info. Trading my 05 wing, unfortunately the gts aren't slated to arrive in US til March.

Also have a streetfighter and 1199.

The GT bike also has the top and side box liners (I'm not sure what they're called but they're luggage that fits the boxes. They were on the bike in Atl this weekend.

'13 MTS Touring: 19995.00 (includes standard panniers, obviously)
Top Case: 658.00
73L Pan. Covers: 350.00
DP Crash Bars: 353.00
Supplementary Lights: (?) 300 (just guessin')
Total: $21648.00

----------vs---------------

'13 MTS GT: @21995.00

Did I miss anything?

And, you have both sets of pannier covers buying it that way (as a "T" and ordering the bits separately). I didn't include any difference in case there's a "better" screen on the GT but if there is, that leaves over $300 to buy it

Unless there's a lot more to the package than we know of now, you are better off buying an S Touring and putting the stuff on yourself. Top box and crash bars are an easy job for anybody with eight fingers and two thumbs, hardly worth $650 to have "factory mounted." The supplementary lights are the one wild card. I priced lights at $300. Do you even need them? Who knows?

You're good, Turkish Express! Unless I missed a major component, (always a possibility!) the GT package doesn't seem like that important an option set to me.

I got the liners/ inner bags with mine. They work fine, not BMW quality but plenty good enough.
Sounds like you are amassing the perfect garage. Lucky man.

On the issue of luggage I see lots of discussion regarding the GT vs. the S Touring but no mention of any aftermarket panniers like Jesse. Does anyone know if there are any aftermarket panniers available for the MTS1200?

Twisted Throttle shows a picture with what looks to be aftermarket panniers but they don't seem to offer any. The Jesse Luggage site doesn't list anything for a Ducati.

I looked at these but I'm not a big fan of the suitcase look tho I know it's quite popular.

micatech V2 are slightly less suitcase like and seem solid
I have the ducati models, but if I had to replace them or were buying for the first time I'd get the micatech

Not sure this is mechanically possible but could you put in 6 springs or at least heavier clutch springs in order to achieve less slipper clutch effect ? I find myself wanting more engine braking heading into turns because the rear brake is non-existent.

From Cycle World review of the 2013 Multi:


The new engine provides awesome low-rpm lunge from only about 3500 rpm—the kind that lets even the wheelie-impaired experience the joy of crossed-up one-wheel travel in second gear.

My 2010 standard was no slouch out of corners from 4k or so also, and would lift the wheel pretty easy in 2nd out of turns. Big fun and also very addicting. Nothing new here, maybe more of it, that's all. Tall light bike with rider up high and plenty of torque spells, light front out of corners with the power on!
