Costa’s on his way back from the press launch of the new Ducati Multistrada in Lanzarote and is mightily impressed, saying that Ducati is right on the money with the claims that they’ve made about this bike.
The first thing of note is its remarkably plush suspension that will be great for the rougher Canadian roads we have. As for whether it’s several bikes in one he reckons that there’s a little bit of superbike in it regarding handling and power but a whole lot of touring capability.
It’s also very stable and handles dirt roads so well that, well … your confidence levels get quite high and you can get a little … err, stupid. Suffice to say that Costa may have had a CMG moment.
But that’s all we have to say right now. All the sordid details in next week’s feature.
