Hi folks! As this is my first post on this fab forum, can anybody assist me in confirming that any Multistrada (namely 1000-1100) makes a fair to great daily commuter around city traffic and heavy freeway traffic?
I'm due to sell my 05 749S for a newby 1100S soon. In fact I have to sell 2 bikes because I'm advised to "consolidate" :wtf:

I've put about 1000 miles on a new 1100s with full termi pipes and a few other carbon bits added. It's a great bike, very comfortable and runs nice. The tank is plastic so you can't use a magnetic bag for the tank. I bought the Ducati Performance saddle bags and they are fine but a pain to put on the bike. Good luck trying to do any work that requires the seat and tank to be removed. It's all one piece and it is a major hassle to remove it.

Thanks lboyd,
do you mean the DP hard cases? And, is the clutch an ATPC type or a standard wet one?

I bought the soft side cases and the 1100 comes with a wet clutch. Does seem to reduce clutch pull a bit, but eliminates your ability to add some trick open clutch covers

Jack of all trades.

Bought my 1000MTS about two years ago. Nothing but grins. This bike does everything very well and has been very reliable. I believe the 07's are even better in this respect. I've had a couple of track days and it has more than enough power to keep up with, and in some cases leave behind, other superbikes. The styling is very subjective but is certainly grows on you. All in all I think you will be very happy with it. The 07' tweaks (‘wet’ clutch-new maintenance program) only make it better.

Hi Multiss,hi evrerybody, I had a great experience with my Multi 1000. I bought it 3 years ago and after 37000 kilometers of Alps' roads and foggy Milan suburbs without any problem, I sold it a month ago to buy a new 1098. If I had had enough money I'd keep it. You won't regret.
Ciao

Folks,
it's done. I've ordered a 07 1100S in Red, told they go faster! Extras are hard panniers, heated grips, carbon rear hugger, seat cowl and centre stand. Picking it up in 2 weeks time. Can't wait. Hope to take it out ASAP and run it in over a weekend!

Not saying how I know, but I can ride a Multi 1100S almost as fast as I can my R6 in the twisties while being much more comfortable. The bike handles GREAT and no one believes me. Why do you think soooooo many Italians own and adore them? Oh, it will out run the Hyper on top end as well. The bike is great. A friend and I took a multi and hyper out the other day for some "test" riding. I finally got him to try the Multi and he didn't want to get off the thing. He finally saw what I raved about so long. It's somewhat a versatile bike, no it's not going to offroad like a BMW or KTM, but it can scratch the corners like crazy. Throw some different rear sets on and you can embarrass some "wannabes" on crotch rockets at the track too. The bike is comfortable and easy to ride both fast and slow.

My multi has a full Zard system, with DP race ECU, opened airbox, Hypermotard race cams, PVM rims, Diablo Rosso tyres, forks have lighter weight oil, and suspension set up by my Ducati tech... also have the Hard Panniers and a top box which altogther will carry a fair bit of stuff including a pillion..great machine that will easily do 7-800klm a day and you won't feel like you've been in the boxing ring after...
