The multi does everything I need it to do but it could definitely be better, akin to Tesla's design.

As far as the quick shifter...yeah, most definitely. There's no reason why a 20,000 dollar bike doesnt have one.

Lastly, id love to see a steering damper on this bike. I know that given how tall it is, it will never be as stable as a sport bike but I believe the steering damper may take some of that squirrely behavior away from the front end.
agreed, but than you should see the MT-10/R1 tft screen.
Sharp, crisp and slick transitions.

I agree wholeheartedly on the GPS point. I've also never had any issues with wobble or instability.

However, a big improvement they could make to the exhaust would be to separate the muffler and the cat assembly... If they put the cat and a resonator under the belly, and a compact muffler in the slip-on location, they'd be able to meet noise and emissions standards while also allowing for easier tuning of the exhaust to the owner's preference without taking away from the compact nature of the visible exhaust components.

This. I only really like the way my stock 2013 MTS1200S GT's exhaust sounds when I'm engine braking from higher rpm.

It's a touring bike. Give us a slightly bigger tank.

Really good point. I try to avoid this on new cars too though it's getting harder to do. Within 6 months that "new" technology will look as quaint as an old fashioned hand crank telephone.

This x100! This bike should do 250-275 miles easy between fill ups.

I think I've seen one built in GPS that was actually really on point in a car. I forget what make/model it was but the built in system used garmin mapping systems and basically just transplanted the garmin software into the HU. This in turn made it so garmin handled all of the updates to it and it actually stayed up to date and got features added to it a few times(since the HU was like 10 times more powerful than any garmin product on the market at the time and the maker was open enough to garmin to let them be able to constantly transplant the new software into it)

Just another rider in the family.

Personally, I'd be happy if the bike weighed less not more. If you want an fat, overweight, lethargic touring bike there are plenty of options; let's not make the Multistrada one of them!

That said, I think Ducati could probably improve the bike in this regard without making major changes. You could, for example, dump the rarely used "Enduro" riding mode and replace it with an Economy/Highway mode designed to get better gas mileage. Tweaks to the gearing might also help there. Along the way I'd love to see a lower first gear, one of the things that makes the SuperDuke 1290 so much fun to ride.
