My local Dealer had some special group demo rides on the weekend (he knows me as I have a 13 Pikes Peak). So he invited me down to go out a the ride upon the Multi Enduro. I could not resist, so I had to do it. It had the Panniers on it when I got there, but I had heard that there non aero-dynamic nature is like a huge sail behind the bike. So we took them off for the ride.
I had not ridden the DVT before, on top of that the lower gearing make it much more punchy down low. Brakes were great, Cruise control works well. I was quite stable at speed on the freeway (more stable than the PP) but remember I did not have the Panniers on there. Its a big bike, footpeg to seat distance was not enough for me (I am 6'5" and 275lbs), so I would have to put on the higher 890mm seat and take out the footpeg rubbers. For big guys over 6" and over 230lbs, this will be a much more comfortable bike for you than then standard Multi (I dont like the 2015 standard multi as its smaller than the 2013 model and more cramped).
