Hi folks, thinking about dipping into the Ducati world via purchase of a used Multistrada 1200S, specifically a 2013 or 2014. There appears to be a decent selection of relatively low milers in the marketplace (<10K miles). I have so much to learn about this brand and model, I would certainly appreciate a little initial guidance with respect to any immediate or known issues on these model years. Many thx, Flhfxd

Be aware of the 60 month interval replacement of the cam belts and 48 month coolant change regardless of mileage. So a low mileage bike will need belts at 60 months. My '13 is due now, even though at less than 10k miles. Got them ordered.
Cheers
Stevo

Check - cam belts at 5 yrs. Are they reasonably accessible through engine side covers or does motor have to be loosened and dropped?
Check also - fuel sensor.
Great info, thx folks.
