    You forgot to mention that in his theory seat time on a bike will also correlate inversely with trolling status. That is, more seat time, less trolling. Which actually makes sense, if someone spends less time in front of the computer, it is less time to troll. :rofl

    Anyway, this Multistrada is definitively in my radar. If not to buy it, simply to observe how it does, I'll be paying attention to it. Like the other poster, it may be the beginning signs of things to change in the motorcycle industry.

    Gonna definitely get one; ok, so I'm a bike 'ho'! But, can't seem to make up my mind on which model. I've waded thru this thread and not sure?

    Can someone definitively answer this: Can the panniers/cases be put on the CF/sport model????

    You might be on your own for definative, but...

    the CF/Sport version at the show had the upper pannier mounts in the tail section, but did not have the lower pannier mounts bolted onto the passenger pegs.

    I am sure you can upgrade from the base model except for perhaps the electronics and ABS. But for me the Touring Edition has the tour gizmos I would need: heated grips, center stand, DES and ABS plus of course the bags.

    At the Ducati booth they provided 2010 catologs with separate pages for all three versions. I think I could used to the beak...the rest of the bike is good.

    All the other Ducs were beautiful.

    According to the Denver area dealer that I talked to - yes.

    A color-matched kit will be available by the time the bikes are shipped to the dealers and can be purchased at that time. Also the same for all of the other additional parts that come on the Touring model. He told me that most of the people who had put down deposits on Sport models were doing this. Also, that all of the sport models that were ordered so far were the black ones.

    Thanks for your response. I was guessing as such but my dealer very new to Duc line and not sure of his response. BTW tho', I got information, not verified, that U.S. deliveries not until April? Of course rumors abound but anyone verify this or more likely, anyone heard the same thing?

    According to the same Denver dealer - yes, April is the official projected date for the first Multis to arrive at the dealerships in the US. He also added that it is his opinion that they will actually begin to arrive in May. He says that this has been his experience with Ducati's new models in the past - about a month longer than the original date. That may just be true in the Denver area though.

    Why is this bike in Beasts and not Road Warriors?

    It is a street bike.

    As stated, and as often as possible -R'ville, N.C.
    FWIW - The original production Hypermotard 1100 was shown at EICMA like the 1200 Multistrada, and they were released in May of that year. I was 1st in line at my shop, and didn't get mine until June.
