From what I have read, the 2014 bike will be built in December. If that is true, then I think we will not see bike hit our shores any earlier than January 2014. That gives me time to sell my bike. So... Anybody want, or know of anybody who wants a 2010 Multistrada 1200S Touring?

I'm expecting to pay right around $20k, I can't imagine it'll be much lower than a premium-plus-something-or-other-top-o-the-line R12GS.

Multiple sources are putting the price at $16,799 for the 1190 ADV-R. Additionally I have read that the base price for the 1190 ADV is going to be roughly $300 less than the R. That said, I wouldn't be surprised of the 1190 ADV comes in a hair pricier once the Electonic Suspension Adjustment is added. Either way, we are probably going to be looking at roughly $18k OTD. Don't forget to save up for the Wings exhaust and the H&B bags. Also the heated grips... Gotta do those

I can only hope the price starts out in the $16K neighborhood not $18K! That difference means a lot to me.

With the information being presented, I would be surprised (disappointedly so) if the starting price was north of the $16k range. I said in my earlier post that I would probably be paying $18k OTD, but that including bags, heated grips, and the like.

Boy I hope you are right, if so, I will add this to my garage after a short test ride. I'm hoping for all of us over here in the states that the price is right. :)
Kind of seems that the west coast is getting a lot of love from the big orange truck...lucky devils!
If anyone hears of a firm price, while on a demo ride, give it a shout here, thanks, or riding impressions...

Thank you very much! I do have a question from your demonstration ride:
  • How is the low speed fueling. The low speed fueling on my 2010 Multistrada 1200S is kind of crap, so the idea of a smooth V-Twin down low would be very nice
  • Did you feel the weight of the exhaust can much on the right side? I plan on getting a Wings... but I'm still curious
  • I have read good things about the gearbox, but that was from journalists, and I am reticent to believe everything they write (due to not wanted to upset bike mfgrs.), how did banging through the gears feel to you? Was it smooth?
  • I want an R, but my brother wants a Standard, so I'll ask about the electronic suspension, did you play with the modes, and did you feel a difference? Electronic suspension adjustment is definitely one place where the Multi shines
  • Is it easy to wheelie (^_^)
  • Do you recall if the digital displays got washed out in the sunlight?
