2/27 Update: This Ducati Multistrada 1100S is now up for sale with a BIN of $5,300
The Ducati Multistrada (Italian for many roads) was a semi-successor to the venerable Cagiva Gran Canyon and the Ducati Elefant. A bike that didn’t fit into any sort of existing bike niche, the Multi hasn’t sold particularly well, though it still soldiers on today.
Available in varying displacements, the 1100S was the top of the line at the time, with the bigger, 95 horsepower engine, Ohlins suspension, and carbon fiber bits. All Multis got the interesting windscreen that moved with the handlebars, independently of the front fairing. Definitely an interesting idea, but opinions are generally negative on the aesthetic result. Want to learn more? Your best bet is probably a 50,000 mile review (of 4 different bikes) done by the folks at Canyon Chasers, explaining why it wasn’t much of a commercial success, but why they love this bike so much.
This specific Ducati Multistrada 1100S is owned by new reader James W., and it’s in great shape with only a few small scratches and a couple of minor fluid leaks to address. It comes well equipped with all the original keys, full Staintune exhaust, heated grips, and Bang Fabrication racks to mount soft luggage.
