That's what I mean - it should do that with the stock exhaust. Without adding a 2k system to a 20k bike.

My bike runs just fine down to 1200 or 1300rpm or so and pulls cleanly out of this range. That's what I expect from a modern engine in a "daily use bike".

Do you actually think before you post? I can read and write wherever I want here. Next, I didn't slam it - I said that Ducati solved the fueling problems that made the bike unrideable for me below 4k RPM by throwing fuel in with new maps. Third, why is it your problem where I read or write?

Youīre absolutely right! But if you buy the bike, from all the extra stuff you can put in it, (i have a lot of s**** in mine) this is the ONLY thing i would buy again!! Itīs a diferent bike! A better one!

Interesting. I never rode a Multi with that exhaust. Hard to say whether I'd like it better with it or not. I'm pretty sure I like the Multi with all the small changes Ducati has made since 2010, but haven't ridden one since. Maybe next year ...

Have you owned any two cilinder bike tha did that??

My v-max runs great in every gear at 1000 rmp .. but i canīt compare with the duc!!! is the two cilinders extra that makes the diference!! that's whats supost!!

Yep. My TransAlp was good down to 1500rpm, the F800GS was good down to like 1800 or 2k, the R1200GS was okay down to 2k. All those bikes were insanely better rideable than the Multi below 3k, the Multi was comparable between 3k and 4k and then left all of them in the dust above that. Depends on riding style whether that works for you or not. It doesn't really for me.

My two cents, there a re plenty of well performing twins at low RPM this is not one! This is about poor fueling, basically to meet emission standards !

You must have owned a very "special" 12GS. When I was one of the "cool kids" and hung out with other GS owners, we compared notes (and the size of our Starbucks cards ) and not one of them even RAN at 2k rpm (and by RAN I mean in gear....ANY gear....on level ground with no throttle input, just let it idle), let alone ran "OK". Most were like mine and at best wouldn't shake itself to pieces at 3k rpm, and flat puked and died at 2500 rpm. But what do I know. I only put 20k miles on mine and have put 12k miles on my MTS12.

Based on direct ownership experience, my MTS12 runs "insanely better" than my 12GS did at 2500rpm because, well, my GS wouldn't run that low. I guess they aren't all the same eh?

Sorry, but that's complete bullshit. Makes sense that you mark your posts accordingly.

ROFL. I was MY BIKE, I damn well know how it ran vs. spouting total sh*t about bikes YOU never owned.

Flame away, your trolling is getting old (and I see you do the same on other brand threads, so I guess us MTS12 OWNERS shouldn't feel too privileged).

Later,
SM

Sounds like you've been riding the wrong bikes...

From reading your posts, you're looking at the WRONG V twin. How about a HARLEY?

I hear they run awesome at 1.5k and 2k rpms.



To be completely serious, the MTS1200 was never intended to be a bike to lug around at low rpms. The basis for the engine was originally WSBK racing (tuned differently of course).

Yes, 1.5k and 2k rpms are now considered low and not midrange rpms. I've never had a problem with my 2010 MTS1200 at the low end. It pulls, it pulls hard and will lift the front wheel coming out of turns, all crossed up, even in urban mode. It's too much fun pretending to be Stoner coming out of corner all crossed up. I've yet to ride a bike that does this so easily and not wrapped up at 7k rpm.

If you're going to nit pick the MTS1200, try something a little more relevant like the electronic suspension, electronic key or warping gas tanks.

Have fun on your tiger!

That's coming from the right person. Pffff. And btw: if you can't deal with normal criticism, that's your problem. I don't give much about your opinion and your language shows what kind of guy you are - one I have no interest in communicating with anymore.
