    As mentioned in the moto.it clip, the 6 1/5 has tubeless spoke wheels. I hadn't seen any info on the X-Cape, but I am ASSuming it will have the same tubeless wheel too... :clap

    The 1200 is so ugly and yet sexy at the same time, love the Italians!

    What is that paint? The black looks somehow more reflective than normal gloss black. Is it some kind of black chrome?

    Between these and their new 650 ADV bike, this brand is on a roll.

    They always are-- right before they go out of business :lol3

    I'm a former MM owner (501 Camel) and my experience was 100% positive- they made a really good bike: so take this as a commentary on Italian business mechanics rather than being against the bikes.

    Maybe the Chinese investment will be different- but normal history is the Italian investors always seem to make out ok; foreign investors, not so much.

    That is some fugly pipe work on the 1200. The 650 looks pretty sweet though.
