Hang on a minute...
Chris - Fomancu is quite correct.
No one has even ridden the damned thing yet!!
This is like the Multistrada all over again, when we heard "...ooooo it's the very best, ooooo the Italian's have invented the all purpose motor bike..." etc, etc., from you blokes at the (Italian & Sportsbike) Motorcycle News.
Which was all patent nonsense. (Tell me was no one at MCN riding bikes before 1985?)
You never even compared the Multistrada against the Tiger or other bikes it should have been compared with - because then of course you would have to have stated "Well, it's good but in the real world the other bikes are probably better, because in real terms they do the basics well enough and are a lot cheaper...". Don't get much of that from you blokes do we - well not when the Italians or sportsbikes are involved!?
So this will be the patently subjective nonsense we have become accustomed, to aimed at appeasing Ducati rather than supporting the hard bitten motorcyclist.
Ducati Drivel - says it all really, and yes the Drivel really is hideous to behold.
Stop the product placement.
Why not do an honest assessment of all multi-purpoe bikes of 90 to 120 horsepower, (including the ones you don't like and will not speak of like the R1200r, and some of the models from other maufacturers you don't like). You could ask some of us along to keep you honest, and to try to give a balanced opinion based upon fact and the motorcycle's competence.
Nahhh, didn't think so too dull eh?
