I'm in the same dilema. 2010 Multistrada base vs KTM SMT. I can get the SMT for $11,700 OTD. The multi I can get for $14k. The nearest KTM street dealer is 2.5 hours away. Ducati is only 20 mins away. That could be an issue warranty wise. I'm a KTM fan- already have a 690 SMC. But the ducati has more power, and the cool dashboard.... I can' t decide.
