Thank you, very good points and need to consider again on spring. Possible motor failure by Ducati pricing would be a disaster? At the same time the Ducati sales price on spring will bring nice profit. Let’s see how nice red colour and gold Öhlins look like on spring sun :D

If you like the Ducati ride, you could get rid of both and get a newer Multistrada without so many issues... maybe a DVT?

With Finnish tax level, bikes are very expensive. Only could see to use the Multi new sales price to correspond priced. Being KTM 1190 adv, or maybe even BMW nine T, which is completely different, but attractive since I’m not touring, and like nice bikes. SMT is the most probable option, since it ticks still all the boxes, and for occasional rides is all fun.

Or Superduke 1290r :D

3 weeks riding with Multi, and it is actually very, very fast and has great suspension. 2up worse than smt, since passenger sits so high, at city this causes falling risk. Felt short love to bike and its looks, but it has to go on spring, and trusty SMT keeps going. SMT does not look how good bike it actually is still. No fancy settings, but it is perfect as it is.
