Yes, it's not even called/referred to as an adventure bike by most moto-rags, ie it's an "open class" bike, and even Ducati referred to the original Multi as a new breed of "sport bike" so really, WTF were they thinking?Thanks for sharing.
I don't think any of us went out to buy the Ducati for off road riding, it's 17'' front hoop has limited that. Fire trails and the odd dirt road yah. There's no dought about it's road capability. If there looking for a KING well it has to be the GS, it does it all.
MUCH safer method physically.Turn your back to the bike, grab the handlebar and the rear grab-rail, and lift with your legs.
