can the MS replace my trusted 93 900SS ?   Posted: Sun Nov 07, 2004 3:40 pm   
yidal8, I had a 95 900 Superlight which as you know doubt know is the same bike with a single seat.

The engines whilst being of the same family feel very different, - the SS engine feels heavy comp ...

Multistrada 1000 as first Bike?   Posted: Sun Nov 07, 2004 3:17 pm   
Perhaps my reply was a bit "harsh" but it was in that tone for a reason, - to be read and generate opinion/reply.

I actually think that as motorcyclists we cannot advise another on something like ...

Multistrada 1000 as first Bike?   Posted: Fri Nov 05, 2004 2:10 pm   
Not sure I agree with the idea of going for a 1000cc first bike idea. I think you learn to be a better rider by doing the progression thing in stages, I also am not sure that the 1000 V(L) twin is the ...

Thinking about a MS S1000DS 2005   Posted: Mon Sep 27, 2004 12:10 pm   
the bike is in Ducati terms is easier to ride, - it is no where near as stable as my 916 on long sweeping bends, but turns in so much easier the 916 could bruise palms! To have fun on a MS you don't n ...

What's the MS Story?   Posted: Sat Aug 21, 2004 6:14 pm

What's the MS Story?   Posted: Sat Aug 21, 2004 6:12 pm   
i had a '98 Superlight/900SS. The numpty has a complete different engine feel to it; it feels a lot lighter, - so spins up without that feeling of effort that the old 2 valvers have. The engine feels ...

Potential owner question   Posted: Thu Apr 22, 2004 7:40 pm   
when you first get on the MS after a sports bike you sit back as far as you can which is not really the right place to sit on the MS, - you want to be up against the back of the tank, - super moto sty ...

Multistrada, Please assure me   Posted: Fri Jan 30, 2004 1:34 pm   
i would almost say that if you have to ask to be convinced then the MS is not for you. The love of a Ducati has to be worked at a bit, it does n't come as easy as say a bland Honda, but when you click ...

Multistrada handling/performance on track?   Posted: Fri Jan 16, 2004 6:44 pm   
my opinion would be that a less experienced track rider would do better on a MS than a more race orientated bike and rider. And it depends on the track, - my 916 is damn hard work to get quickly aroun ...

multi vs. aprilia tuono mille   Posted: Tue Dec 09, 2003 3:32 pm   
i have to agree in that you can't directly compare the 2 bikes. Sorrry but the Prilla is a styling exercise with an RSV, - the MS is imo a new approach, - typical of Ducati in that they build a bike a ...
