2021 Ducati Multistrada
This one looks cool....could it replace the FJR for some folks?
It’s close to 100lbs lighter than the FJR (for us AARP want a lighter bike types). Looks like very good suspension options, decent fuel range, horsepower enough for a Moto-GP rookie and dual-sport capability. High end electronics including radar. It actually looks pretty innovative. All one has to do is take out a small 2nd mortgage and it’s all yours 🙂
Not sure on the pillion comfort level though....which is a factor on this household. The wife does not like to sit up too high on a seat with the comfort of a piece of 2x4 (the KTM 1290 Super Adventure did not float her boat).
Those Pirelli tires are a actually not bad for dual sport. I have them on my Desert Sled. But really....who would take this bike on a real dirt adventure?
Ducati really wants to tap into this sport touring market hub?
Think it has a chance?
If it has two wheels or a mainsail - I will pilot it.
