The S models come standard with:

Ohlins electronically controlled suspension.
ABS
Traction Control

included on Touring S:
Bags
Heated Grips
Centerstand

included on Sport S:
Carbon fiber in many places


Not sure if the S models also have forged wheels rather than cast wheels.

I talked to my dealer and while Ducati new to the BMW dealership in Daytona Beach, FL, I couldn't understand if there was a 'touring S' and he/they didn't know? Is it an actual model OR just buying piece/parts later????

Thank you...

I've run into this same thing with Duc dealers. Some don't know shit about what they're peddling. All they know how to do is fill out a sales agreement. Pretty pathetic.

Go to www.ducati.com for accurate info.

Here's a broad overview of the Multi12 lineup if anyone is still unclear.

4 Models All have DTC and four modes(see below).
-Standard
-Standard w/ABS
-S Sport
-S Touring

Both Standards have fully manually adjustable Marzocchi/Sachs(front/rear) suspenders.
Both S models have push button adjustable Ohlins front/rear suspenders.

3 Engine Mappings in all models
-Two different 150hp maps. Both reach the same peak, one is slightly lower and smoother through rpm range before peak.
-One 100hp map.

4 Modes in all models. Modes alter mapping and DTC in all models. Modes also alter ABS and suspension in models so equipped.
-Sport, higher 150hp output
-Touring, smoother 150 output
-Urban, 100hp
-Enduro 100hp

You may not be aware, but BMW GS will have a new motor for 2010. This is a major consideration for the potential GS buyer looking a tthe new MS. They are giving away the GS right now with a lot of free gear. Fact is that hex motor was a dud.

Ducati new MS is a sweet machine for on road maybe light fire trail stuff. Got to get the courage up to spend 20+ grand for it though!

Yeah, same basic engine only with dual cam HP2-style heads and bigger throttle bodies. 5 more HP and 500 RPM higher redline. Supposedly more low end torque too. Also, an optional 2.6 ratio first gear option for the tranny.

What do you mean it didn't last long? you mean it blows up after a certain number of miles or do you mean they updated it after so many years because they figured it's a "dud"?

Current 1200 hexhead iteration came out in 2004. Lasted thru 2009 model year. Not a long production run. But, neither was the 1150 from 99-2004. Point taken.

Cant wait to see that MS up close.

Well the BMW banter seemed to act as a thread killer, go figure.

Just some thoughts about this interesting bike to kickstart this thread again...

While I'm not generally a proponent of aftermarket exhaust systems much anymore, the two Termignoni options pictured in the photos by John Montgomery at the Milan show, are certainly attractive options and don't at all look out of place, on this high output touring Ducati.

The one with the carbon fibre outlet appears to be rather conservative (read emissions legal) and still retains a collector box, hence probably housing the oem catalytic converter assembly etc. However the second system with the long conventional looking silencer, looks to be strictly a "track use only" system and omits the oem collector box and will be surely the Termignonli exhaust, purchased by most of the interested buyers. Whether or not it includes airbox mods and necessary remapping remains to be seen, but it should yield a considerable weight loss and "interesting power gains" to be sure...

Anyway let's restart the babble about one of 2010's most exciting big bore entrys !
And the "gosh, the beaks ugly, it's sure expensive and it don't look like a replacement for an HP2 or 950SE" postings are getting pretty lame...
