a panini and coffee break, the demented group I’ve riding with was ready to hit the again. I met them at the entrance to one of my twisty roads, the one that to the observatory above the village of The GSX-R750, 636 and CBR600 — all gumballed tires and very dudes aboard — a tough challenge for me and the new Ducati Multistrada.

On the short uphill no amount of throttle-cable stretching to leave an impression on these Having plenty of torque is helpful when exiting hairpins, yet not enough to really put me in a to show’em who’s boss; guys were good. The stretch was well paved, the winter sun managed to dry all the wet patches and the was as good as it gets; perfect

A few turns into the nasty bit and the 636 simply lets me through as if standing still, another and the GSX-R guy gives up as well. Hey — everything OK? Up ahead, the CBR is seemingly doing all he can to put on a decent but after two scary moments in one wet with nasty bumps, he defeat.

At the road’s exit I to wait: it’s almost a sin to not out a cigarette, break it in half and it in order to put on the full It’s an hour that I’m for you guys show.

As they over I can already hear the

What a s%$*y stretch! GSX-R guy.

Yeah. there was gravel all responds Signore636.

Almost the front on those bumps, did you see it? CBR while massaging his wrists, like the downhill braking almost … him. I bow acknowledging their pain and on towards another direction, a bit at just how unruffled the Multistrada was the same tarmac. What a indeed, isn’t there is in this world?

I for one never there was any.

It’s almost four years I last rode a Multistrada in and the treasured memories of following Smart at the Multi’s launch in are still vivid in my mind. As as I enjoyed that ride, a bike on sinfully perfect is one thing, but putting it through its in a myriad of conditions is quite The other journos and I left Sardinia launch quite by the Multi’s capabilities but after a year of relatively good Ducati’s mutant ninja to leave an impression on the market and a bit of an oddity.

On the other hand, during the three years I’ve across a few Multistrada owners and found one that wasn’t attached to his steed; I’m about will never it! levels of attachment. Strange, it? So I’ve been … to a Multi for a proper test for a now and with perfect timing, has released the first seriously Multistrada with a 100cc-bigger and other small touches.

ten days in its company be enough to the spell that the Multi has over its devotees or at least me why it fails to click with the at large so far?

First, the upgrades. Displacement bumped up from 992 to 1,078cc of a simple bore job, and a wet now handles power-disengagement duties being quieter than the old dry unit to boot. The exposed seat was the target of some in the old model. Though my own personal felt OK after a day’s during the press launch, the has been replaced by an upholstered one a seemingly different shape.

worth adding that at point in time the Multi got a screen that supposedly the wind protection, another point of the first model.

By the air-cooled twin into a frame that’s stiff as a block thanks to heavy Ducati created one of their scoots (that crown belongs without doubt to the TL600).

The main debate point so much about the very of a do-it-all Duc but rather the polarizing A scooter face with a Hailwood Replica tail, I at the time and I wasn’t the harshest by a mile.

Over the phone she was excited: Are you to pick me up with a red 1100 Wow! Unsurprisingly, as soon as I into her parking lot, her changed: What the $%!@ is A Ducati?
