I guess it's an age old decision, but I thought I'd see if there was any feedback that could assist from owners out there. I'm looking to spend $10k-$12k on a large adventure bike. Suitable for 2up, 5,000kms + year, and realistically 90% on road. It appears this budget puts me in the 2010/11/12 range for either choice. My head says the rock solid reliability of the Super 10. My heart says I've never owned Ducati and the exhaust sound is intoxicating. I guess the main reason for my question is RELIABILITY of the Multistrada. I AM NOT mechanically minded, and will be relying of dealership/indys for servicing. I have owned KTM990, VSTROM 1000, KLR650s and DR750s in the past. Any comments re either bike is greatly appreciated.
