Ducati Multistrada: old vs new

In 2010 Ducati’s all new Multistrada turned the adventure market on its head. It was a breath of fresh air, the sportiest bike in the sector. An impressive 150bhp from the 1199 V-Twin was backed up with high-tech gizmos, comfort and usability. It proved to be the success story Ducati was hoping for. Now three years on Ducati want to stay ahead...

I know they're not the same category of bikes, but how does the Multistrada's skyhook suspension compare to the BMW HP4's suspension? It'd be interesting to know who has made the better version, just for nerdiness sake

having ridden the original LS, I am NOT surprised to hear about the new model being a lot better, because the original one was rubbish. I liked the reference to pogo stick because thats exactly what it was like. Now the MS12 seems more appealing

so when are Ducati going to make a proper, sports touring road bike with this skyhook stuff. i think the answer will be NEVER, as it would be quicker on most roads than their full on sports bikes, i feel that the sports touring market has been let down by all the top manufacturers as a modern sports tourer using all the lightweight parts and top spec. suspension and brakes would be so close to a full on sports bike, that full on sports bike sale would fall away. I'm not interested in an adventure bikes or full on sports bikes and i'm not going to ride a fat overweight touring bike or a budget parts sports bike / sport tourer. But i'd like the suspension all the same.
