    Only 26 days to the 2018 model launch. Multi prices/ deals should be good once the new 1260 model is announced.

    I certainly haven't had any regret in purchasing an MTSE rather than a GS.

    Good...don't....the GSw is a fantastic bike, and I like mine, but ultimately? It's just an appliance.

    Earlier this year I purchased a 2017 MSTE. Four weeks later I sold it and returned to the GS. Why? Ducati has a great motor, nice ergos, and attractive looks. But the wind noise was intolerable. I tried 3 different screens and several wind deflector set ups. I ride 80 miles plus every day. The bike was giving me a headache.

    Never been a problem for me. I’m using the Puig tall screen.

    yeah i suppose you could say that. Don't get me wrong, as I've said the GS is great. It works, it has good ergo's, things are integrated well, and it rides well. But when you compare it to a MTS with similar mods, there's just something....missing....the intangibles of it, I suppose. For me, the sound and motor have a lot to do with it. I really like Duc twins. A lot.

    Just goes to show everyone is different. My GS is noisier than my Multi, and the Multi is stock. On GSs I’ve gone through a couple different screens

    I wear ear plugs all the time anyway. No bike I actually want to ride is going to be silent. :-D

    I use the vestigial PP screen, can't find a tall screen that doesn't kill me with the buffeting and blast

    Like a retiree's bike? Ouch. I resemble that remark. I retired at 62 and have made good use of my gym membership over the past 3 years so I can still get my GSA up off the sidestand. My BMW/Ducati dealer has an Enduro in the showroom that looks pretty tempting. I have enjoyed reading the impressions of people who have ridden both. Mine has been a great bike for me as far as comfort and the wind protection comments are very interesting. The service requirements sound quite different and I would have to get more information on the costs before switching brands.
