Let us know what you think. I'm afraid that as an old GS rider you might find it too sporty... Tech wise there is still a big difference between the 950 and the 950s. You will not get the fully electronic skyhook suspension for instance. Don't know how different the ride will be with the standard suspension. If you get the chance, test the 950s to feel the difference. But I understand, sometimes you get the chance to make a nice deal, and 10500$ is indeed not a lot of money for a Multistrada. Is it brand new? Looking forward to your ride report.
