I found that wind noise/buffeting is less with the wind screen in the lowest setting and virtually gone when standing on the pegs. Other than this, the bike is an awesome ride.

I am braving the weather today to have a baseline dyno pull done. The local dealer has a "dyno day" going on, so I figured I'd take advantage of that. Otherwise it would be just another day on the boards.
Hey, I was out and about causing havoc up in the canyons today......87 degrees.....tough to stay inside with weather like that!

Here's the pull in living color. Bike is stock. Make whatever corrections you want for being a Dynojet. Ambient was about 60 degrees F and maybe 100 feet ASL. No interest in getting involved in arguments over eddy current dyno vs. inertia....... Not my department!

Essentially a flat torque curve. Sweet!

Like a mesa. It's the most notable feature, but the lack of holes in the HP curve and the linearity are notable too. That's a stock pipe and tune.

Also confirms Ducati's reliability in specifying the Multi as a 150HP bike.

70 plus lb feet at 3500 rpm, not too shabby.

Very healthy! Yeah, hp is directly proportional to torque x rpm, and because torque is basically constant, hp grows linearly with rpm. I love the power delivery of my 2010 MTS. This confirms why. Thanks for posting.

Nice numbers , nice and consistent lines , lots of oxygen at 100 ft ASL.

One more comment, perhaps a tangent. A common question and one I always wonder about myself is what is the best break in procedure.....really. We read the spectrum of responses generally between "read the manual" and "ride it like you stole it" but I've always been a guy who errs towards the recommendations in the book.

This one was a pretty much a classic break in. I varied it a bit and got more aggressive after 450 or 500 miles because the bike didn't feel tight and I got the sense that I could push it a bit but I was always sensitive to lugging and varied speeds constantly. I brought her up progressively to increasingly more revs for short periods between there and about 800 miles and started exploring the upper reaches after that with frequent closed throttle over runs downhill and that sort of thing. Up and down for what seemed like forever. But overall, if anybody ever cared to ask me, the fast answer would most honestly be "it was done by the book." It burns no visible oil between changes and appears to make exemplary power.

As I often find in my life, taking the middle path seems to work pretty well.

No matter the method, the key is exactly what you did and I agree completely with the highlighted points. Personally I have never stuck to the rev limits in the manual but otherwise do what you did. Never had a bike or car/truck for that matter use oil between changes, even my R1200RT and the boxers are known for using oil, at least at first.
