    Not much of a "reveal"......

    The new range topper, the Multistrada 1200 S Granturismo, gains bigger panniers, a top box, extra LED lights and a bigger screen. All the Multistradas get a 'second generation' Testastretta 11° engine – no details yet on what that means, though.

    This site seems to have a bit more info:
    http://blog.motorcycle.com/2012/09/2...pecs-released/

    - Testastretta 11° engine: The 1198cc 90-degree V-Twin engine now features a dual-spark configuration
    -Ducati claiming an output of 91.8 ft-lb. compared to 87.5 ft-lb. for the previous generation model. Ducati claims the power will still max out at 150 hp
    -Available on the S models, the Ducati Skyhook Suspension system is semi-active, adjusting damping on the fly using information from the wheel sensors. The Ducati Skyhook Suspension adjusts accordingly to match the mode, as do the traction control system and ABS brakes.

    Ducati officially announced it 2 days ago, and you have one on Vancouver Island......you sure about that?

    Ducati’s Multistrada 1200 International Press Test is set to take place in Bilbao, Spain from 20-27 September, while the first public showing of the 2013 Multistrada range will be at the INTERMOT motorcycle show in Cologne, Germany from 3-7 October. The brand new Multistrada 1200 models will be available via the official Ducati dealer network from December 2013

    For some reason I like that crazy looking mudflap behind the rear tire.

    on this bike i should feel quite happy taking the shoulder instead i think it's usually faster than splitting anyway
