Oh, I know, I used to have an MTS1200 and it is, in my opinion, the best motorcycle being sold currently. But, still, this thing looks fun.

The Multistrada 1100 was the Pontiac Aztec of the motorcycling world.  The 1200 looks better but it still an ugly duckling. How could ducati design such an ugly bike I will never know.  They literally were selling the best looking as well as the worst looking bikes in the world.

I agree that the first one was ugly. The second one had the weird beak, but I thought it was reasonably good looking (certainly compared to the GS). But, more importantly, it is, by far, the most versatile bike out there. If I was buying motorcycles today, I would buy an MTS first and then start looking at other stuff, it is a no-brainer.

3 of the Marley "kids" rode them throughout Africa on their way to South Africa for World Cup

Soon maybe. I'm definitely curious.

I feel it's a bit over the top... I ride because it's fun, nothing more. Of course it can be a devouring passion, but it looks from the film that they try to make it into some of religious commitment that guide you through your life ? Not sure it's the right message. Not feeling it should be a 0 or 100% thing.

Great idea. Put knobbies on a $20000 street bike and ride it in dirt. No way you will ever lay it down and scratch the shit out of all that plastic.

It can be made roadworthy again by simply doing a wheelswap and removing the skidplate.   A lot cheaper than what Roland Sands did to that $80,000 Desmosedici

It's plastic, it can be replaced. Maybe not something to do if you can't afford to. Plus it looks like a lot of fun and that is really what motorcycling is about.

Don't get me wrong, I am still thinking an MTS1200 is the way to go... But this makes me think, what about an HP4...
