In the past, if you wanted a jack-of-all-trades motorcycle, you grabbed a sporty standard. But now, a bike like Ducati’s Multistrada, with the help of its sophisticated electronics and variable cam timing, can be anything you want it to be. Strafing apexes with sportbikes? No problem. Want electronic suspension that snacks on potholes? It does that too. But most surprising is what a great touring bike the Multistrada is. Yes, it leans heavily toward the sporty side of the spectrum, but if you want your two-up touring to be a bit more athletic, it’s hard to find a more enjoyable bike for the journey.
