    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.

    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.

    I was very tempted by one of those hyper motos. If they turn it into an adventure bike I expect to get one :1drink

    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....

    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.

    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.

    See postings under multistrada. Theory is it will replace the Multistrada.
