Versy-cati...

Looking at the 2010 Ducati lineup I just gotta ask: Does this Multistrada look like a roided out Versys or what?

Design Inspiration

First off the widshield should be tinted to shiney up top , the mirrors are too pointy like Will Smith ears and out front there is a long beak , what's up with that ??? Here is the lead man on the project , used a mirror for inspiration ..........just a guess

Agreed. I was never really into the wind deflector that rotated with the bars bit. Now it looks more like a Ducati BMW...what with the single sided swing arm and double front fender. Eventually bikes will look like one huge front fender... like the DN01.

HAHAHA... definitely some mirror usage going on there. It looks like the beak is for air intake? DEFINITELY not designed for water crossing then.

I'd still rather have an 2010 Versys.

I'm sorry... I read this post, in my cubicle at work, in a very quiet office, lots of people working... I snorted and laughed out loud! I think I may have woke up a few of my associates.

I don't think it looks anything like the V, looks nice from the side untill you see it from the front angle, those air intakes look nasty. Defintely funny stuff guys, does look like the lead guy saw himself in the mirror and went for it.

As far as water crossings, that bike has no dirt capabilities whatsoever, 17" wheels, 190/55 rear SBK spec tire size??? etc..... One bike that does what 4 do I think that not only the lead guy is fugly but stoned as well.
