    Anybody else disappointed with what they saw in the release? The new V4 Naked looks like it would chew up and spit out most people, but other than that not much going on.

    Yes I think you are right it was reasonably light on big news this time around. Mostly new paint jobs or styling tweaks only, with the obvious exception of the V4 Naked.

    Still think Ducati has one of the strongest all-around ranges of most manufacturers though.

    The Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour looks somewhat of a beast, but I dread to think of the price.  :005:
    EDIT: 19 thousand of your finest English pounds.

    Yep, got to agree it was all a bit of a damp squid in the end wasn't it!!!!!!  :169:.

    However, I've got to agree the 1260 GT does look very handsome, especially in that colour scheme. I like the belly pan treatment as well, very neat.

    Be rude not to test ride it when it becomes available and compare it to a 950S.

    Love that video ....  :138:   ".... the keyword is Freedom" (or as much freedom someone can have when accompanied by a back up van, camera crew and a helicopter!)  :008:

    Have to agree, that GT is a sexy looking machine in those colors. It would be a shame to cover that with stickers... :150:

    I did say it was some of the finest Italian marketing eg... told us nothing, but probably cost an arm and a leg!!!  :164:

    I think the biggest disappointment (from a technical perspective) was there is no radar cruise control on the Multistrada GT.

    There have been lots of rumours it would have been included on the 1260 GT as Ducati wanted to be first out of the block using radar cruise however, it obviously wasn't ready in time!

    Probably be released on the V4 Multi now  :084:
