    Yes, I rode one. Not my type of bike but it is a very good bike and certainly looks better than Ducati's last attempt at a feet forward bike.

    Don't sell yourself short- I'm sure you'd have known it was ugly without any outside help.

    I didn't say what it was notable for.

    I have a friend with an MS1100. He loves that bike, it's hardly every in his garage. (Mostly because it's usually at the dealership waiting for parts...)

    I won't quote the pic because I don't want to look at it again but that Indiana is uglier than a V Strom. :evil

    We can turn it back into a car tyre thread if you want :deal

    And my 2c ... the Diavel is way worse. The Indiana just looks like a generic cruiser really.... if you hadn't told me it was a Ducati, I wouldn't have known. The Diavel on the other hand :puke1

    no, but i seriously think it is least worst looking. serious gag reflex stifling needed in either case. :lol3

    besides, you're cheating; the pic you posted has nice accoutrements! :1drink

    They're both ugly bikes. I'm sure the Diavel is a hoot to ride, but that doesn't make it pleasing to the eye.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, however, so enjoy the looks of the Diavel if it rubs your happy bone.

    They had a thread in one the bike forums here, about ugly bikes, and the 990 adv got it's fair share of vote's. I ride one and have to admit it's been hit few times with the ugly stick. Diavel looks ok to me, haven't ridden one though.
    Sorry, back to the Dragon.:D

    Impossible! No bike can be uglier than a Vstrom.

    Same curve as the Triumph/Corvette crash a few weeks ago, but I'm pretty sure this pic is much older.

    Which way is forward ? :rofl

    Interesting steering and anti-brake-wrap linkage and single shock turnbuckle. Guess that makes ride height adjustment easy...

    Yeah this is from a series of the crash posted May 2009 but clearly is mid Sept or so if you notice the tree color. So maybe 2008
