Ducati Multistrada 1000 DS




The Multistrada is Ducatis spanner, so to speak a competent in almost every respect, bar the fuel tank, which is of the 620 version. It has a zesty engine and is if a little underpowered for a one litre but it will take you anywhere. is good, but not revolutionary and goodies are to come by. Its love em or hate em means that you dont see a deal of them around.

In a good, safe, solid a bike you would buy with head rather than heart. The cockpit is well out, with a large rev side by side with an LED for speedometer, odometer, trip and lap yes a lap timer (?). Strangely I sat on the bike several times to work out how to change information mileage and clock via the lap counter.

I found myself pushing mountings and rubber bits all to no Then, as my gloves became vague with the weight of I accidentally pressed the starter while moving and it changed the press it again and the lap timer quite bizarre. The fuel is again an LCD visual and tracks the quarter or so of the tank.

Youll for 100 miles and then the gauge like a stone. Quite

Like a greyhound off the trap; the surges forward at an alarming when you open the gate. All the trick bits; Brembo and wavy discs tick the specification boxes.

unnerving as I was never quite what was left in the tank. prudent use of the throttle, fuel was about 40mpg so on an 18 litre a range of about 150 miles is not out of the Use the bike ruthlessly and this drops as you attempt to quench the of the triple. The roads that from Louth to civilisation are superb and a test of any motorcycle.

in some water and the job gets more fun. The Amazonas has a bike feel to both the and the forks. The USD Marzocchis keep the end firm and throwing the bike turns is no problem at all.

In the handling is more like a than an ‘off-road’ machine, rider to place the bike where you want it with pin accuracy. The brakes are superb and every other bike Ive ridden, the back brake works well so well if youre not careful the back will skip and lock medium braking, especially if slack at changing down in support of the brakes. The rear is excellent with great and a quality ride.

It has full adjustment on hand to set the up to your taste, as has the front. One of the of the engine, though, is demonstrated in the wet and I

no doubt will translate to use. The throttle control is and with torque seemingly from tick-over to redline, the slightest, overly zealous with the throttle is punished the back tyre losing with the road, hence a of rather large slides even riding with my set to rain mode. Translate to the stuff and Im sure the bike be quite a handful for the general

So, seven hours later, the have been conquered and the stopped with five to go, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the Its a lot of bike for the money. Sure it have ABS or some of the refinements of a BMW, but it does have something that I think is lost with bikes

Its idiosyncrasies are endearing and everywhere you fellow two wheelers want to and talk about this machine, the badge on the tank as a magnet for debate (about Benelli experiences). The design is its and when coupled to a winning it has all the hallmarks of a great bike. So on the I have to say trs bon, it is a bike I for one am sure will take the Benelli back to the masses MSL done.
