All the components come from other models. The only thing that's new is body work and the speedo display. Bet these things come in at or under the price of the MultiStrada. Bet on $11,500 or so. Not more than $12,900.
Glad to see it come out but I sure won't put money down and wait. Too much else out there that can be had now. Can't fault them for trying to set the first production run a bit ahead of actual expenditures though.
Wait a minute, I thought Ducati was on the ropes and owes like a zillion dollars to various banks, and that some turban wearing oil magnate was going to buy 'em out and change the whole line to motorized rickshaws & hot dog carts.
As a life long Ducati hater I "relish" the thought. Get it? Hot Dogs? Relish? Hahahhah
OK honestly your logic makes sense... but hot is hot and Ducati is out to make money. I swore I read somewhere $17K, I put my money that the first ones go for at least $17K (supply and demand) and then go down to a MSRP of +$15K.
