Fine with me, I have a GS already! I want to get rid of my lard ass cruiser (Triumph Rocket III, lard as in weight but not short on power!) for a lard ass ADV bike with power to match! I'm really leaning towards a Triumph Tiger but I have never owned a Ducati & if this thing is coming to the states, I just may wait on one.

A 1098 on stilts. Sounds good to me..

Some more good shots. Either the test rider is a dwarf, or it's a big 'un. Note Brembo radials..this won't be a budget machine.

Rumor has it as a mid-2009 announcement.

See postings under multistrada. Theory is it will replace the Multistrada.

I was thinking the same of the riders size.

Actually, if you look closely @ the eyes and the thickness through the chest of the rider, it could be a gal. Wow, what a daydream that could turn into if I wasn't scared of someone coming back & telling me it's their 5'6" cousin Anthony on the bike!

Pissed Selfish Bastards !

To those of you that intend to purchase this upcoming Ducati model, Damn you all to Hell !

I hope if you mount a set of 41 litre Touratech Zega panniers and fill them to the brim, that it handles as poorly as my 04 DL1000...

May your tuneups cost as much as my DL's current resale value.

You'll be too much of a penny pincher to purchase a decent radar detector and lose your license.

And the list goes on and on and on...

Please however, post photos and riding reports.
