This is not a new motor mechanically, no reason why that kind of change would be made. Someone was messing with you or ignorant!

Nice bike!

Nice bike!

Did they talk about what goes into the service? Is this something that could be done by the owner or just dealer trained techs?

I ride about 8-10k a year. Coming off of a BMW LT, this doesn't sound that unusual.

There are superficial similarities with Yamaha's TDM - upright stance, half-fairing, factory hard bags and weight come to mind.

Conceptually tho, is there a parallel?

If Yamaha had put a mildly re-tuned version of its latest R1 engine into the TDM, while keeping weight the same and upgrading the rolling chassis to R1 spec or better, but with more suspension travel and some gravel road capability, the parallel would be a lot more obvious.

Am I just being picky?

To amplify, I suppose what I am getting at here is that the spec level and power output seem to me key parts of the concept for this new Ducati.

Considering the quality level of the electrical systems that they provide us in the past I will give a free advice…

DON’T EVER EVER WASH THAT BIKE !

Here's another parallel, borrowed from the car world.

People have said the Multi 12 will be like a Porsche Cayenne - the hulking Porsche 4WD wagon.

But it's much more like a 911 sports car with a bigger boot (trunk in US-speak?), rally suspension and sophisticated winter-tread tyres.

Which would be a fair way from the mainstream and a long way from typical Jap soft-road family 4WD wagons, which I would see as parallels for the Yam TDM, Kaw Versus, Honda Transalp etc.

I pressed the folks from DNA about service intervals on the new Multi12 after our local presentation. They were pretty tight lipped. That said, when details are formally announced, don't be surprised if it is considerably more than 7500 miles...

Can we hear from people who ordered the new Multistrada

I have one of the first orders in signed November 14th 2009 with a 10% deposit. It was already sent to the Ducati factory and my delivery is expected in March.

What color did you order? and Why? They sure are pushing the black

Anything else you can tell is appreciated

Also i am new here, how to I start a new topic?

Rich ? - with respect, you need to be rich to buy a Rolls Royce or Bentley - but a Multistrada ? I appreciate its hard times but even so.

The basic version of the MTS is going for about 10K in the UK, thats $16K ish I think. Not cheap but within the common mans reach - one day, if not today.

I'm trying to convince myself you understand, stay with me
