I was told it was only 500.
RMac, do know the mfg of your skid plate? I have one already, but it has a hole in it big enough to drop the oil filter from and kind of defeats the purpose in the protection aspect.
Mine was a one off custom job a friend made for me.
Time to resurrect this thread since Feb '09 Motor Cyclist magazine talks about the bike being shown to dealers @ an EICMA reception. Any sheister dealers out there who snuck a photo feel free to post here! Kinda like the guy who got his first photos of the MG Stelvio out there.
Word has it that the current multistrada ends it's run this year. Maybe something will pop up in 2010..
I was very tempted by one of those hyper motos. If they turn it into an adventure bike I expect to get one
I've seen two versions of the stradaperta 1200:
Both claim a 1200 version with 100hp+
Give us springed valves with long intervals...only thing holding me back.
Yeah, desmo is romatic and all but totally not required on a NON-racebike.
This bike is meant to compete with 1200gs from BMW.
I liked the multistrada and damn near bought one but heh it has to be practical....I ride daily and commute is where I am caring dog.....and i have big........hands........try getting the key in and out over and over.....bar gets in the way...stupid..........
yeah i like beer and have had a few...enjoy....
MCN UK supposedly has some "exclusive" spy shots this week coming.
We'll see i guess.
How long an interval do you want?
When I dropped my desmo in for a valve check my mechanic said... "I'll check it but it won't need adjusting. They're not like japanese bikes".
Didn't need adjusting. They bed in quick then don't change. I'd take desmo every time.
As for those pictures above. That is a fugly piece of crap. If it looks like that the elefant is staying.
Here is the cover for tomorrows' MCN. Duke is top right. Heavily disguised but clearly liquid cooled, road orientated tourer. Looks like a direct rival for the Moto Morini Granpasso and the Tiger.
More shots here..
Ah crap. Stupid little alloy wheels. It's just another road bike.
It won't be a GS rival with a 17' front wheel, noooo way.
Fine with me, I have a GS already! I want to get rid of my lard ass cruiser (Triumph Rocket III, lard as in weight but not short on power!) for a lard ass ADV bike with power to match! I'm really leaning towards a Triumph Tiger but I have never owned a Ducati & if this thing is coming to the states, I just may wait on one.
A 1098 on stilts. Sounds good to me..
Some more good shots. Either the test rider is a dwarf, or it's a big 'un. Note Brembo radials..this won't be a budget machine.
Rumor has it as a mid-2009 announcement.
See postings under multistrada. Theory is it will replace the Multistrada.
