how many multistradas have sold again? Might have been more if it was made by Honda and cost less. Maybe the Honda version would have 90% of the Ducati performance. I could live with that. and why, exactly, are bikes like the versys 650 and 1k not enough like a multistrada? More than double the hp of the 650 should make a difference. Versys 1000 is not sold in US, but if it was, that would be a big step in the right direction. My personal taste is for vee twins though. you're talking like the big four are hurting - they aren't. Right. What I meant is that as the motorcycle market in the US (slowly) transforms from cruisers and sportbikes to adventure style bikes, buyers are going to Euro bikes because the big four still focus on selling sportbikes and cruisers. The hurt is riders like me that are disgusted with Suzuki still selling a V-Strom 1000 that has not been improved in 11 years.
