Thanks for pointing that out. One of our local dealers has it at $10,450, the other one at $8,999. Well, I've got some heavy thinkin' to do.

Manufacturers' bags always seem to be astronomically priced. I'm sure Givi won't ignore this bike. That was the biggest thing that stopped me from buying an FZ.

Ducati already did this bike with the first gen Multistrada. Had one. LOVED it. HATED it. This bike would take the hate out of the equation.

Try State Farm. I was really torn between the Conc and the FZ, and SF quoted pretty much the same for both, which was not very much at all. Geico quoted me $1600 for the FZ. Hahahahahaha. Geico.
