I've seen people touring on them, saying they were "great" to tour on. Sure they are.....120 mile range, buck board suspension, no wind/weather protection. (I owned one, and they are really fun bikes, but NOT good tourers)why would anyone put bags on a Vmax anyway
So go figure Ducati: they drop like a dead fish their best touring motorcyle, and then replace it with a big, overly complicated motard, accesorise the actual motard, and a retro, and now a muscle bike. Think there's a gap in the line-up they're trying to comepnsate for by whipping up all these pseudo S-tourers?
