    Hey guys, I'm seriously considering buying a Multistrada V2S and have had a bad experience with Ducati in the past and also know riders who had issues with older Ducati. Trying to figure out my chances of getting a flawless bike if I get a 2022 Ducati.
    The goal is not to bitch or praise any brand, I've owned bikes of most brands and am not loyal to any single brand.

    Please only vote if you own(ed) a Multistrada 950 or 950S. Thanks! :)

    I have a 2017 950 Multi I bought new. I just did the yearly maintenance on it at a bit over 12000 miles. It has been flawless. I expect to do the five year/18000 mile desmo service sometime in 2022. Unless something unexpected occurs, it is a keeper.

    My 950 is just a year old I have covered 5500 miles and I am very pleased with it.

    I rode both versions and went for the standard bike, as I could not justify the extra cost of the S. Less to go wrong and just as much fun.  :152:

    30.000km (2018) on mine, perfect bike. Also understand that control quality is getting better last years what should provide even better bikes than mine.

    Four years old and 56000 miles on the clock. Totally reliable and dependable. Was hoping to see 100000 miles but the new Guzzi Mandello has seriously caught my attention 🤔

    Yeah I know what you mean when I bought my Africa Twin I told everyone I wouldn't sell it before it hits 100000(km) but here I am looking at another bike. In all fairness normally I ride 25-30000km a year, and since covid I've been riding much less and also restored a 93 Nighthawk 750, so after 3 seasons I have only 30000km on the Africa Twin. In 2015 I bought a Triumph Scrambler and sold it 2.5 years later with 70000km on it.

    Not sure I'd buy one, but would certainly love to try one! :)

    I don't know which of the above option I'd pick, LOL. I suppose I had an issue that most would characterize as catastrophic pretty early in its life, but I absolutely LOVE my Multi and don't plan on replacing it for a long time.
