Not sure I would call a 800cc Twin a Motard but I like what I see indeed

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

I saw these at IMS. I agree it's pretty neat, but also seemed like a bike with and identity crisis. Didn't look great as a tourer or motard.

No interest in any bike my wife can't enjoy with me.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

This first caught my interest when I saw it on ducatis websites. Being able to actually see it and sit on it at the Motorcycle Show made me think that it would actually be a pretty cool bike to have for my commute and those weekend blast.

It's a baby Multistrada and felt very nimble. Won't be the best to do long hauls in but for daily commuting I think its a great alternative. Especially for the price point and the 15K service intervals... You will need to swap out the springs from what I felt though especially if you're on the bigger side or want to two up.
