Compared to the standard Multistrada, the Enduro felt out of sorts at speed on the street, but for every point the Enduro is docked on road, it gains two points off road. The larger front wheel and added suspension stroke suck up big hits with ease, and the front end tracked beautifully and never deflected when faced with rocks or other obstacles. The added wheelbase, trail, and rake are likely to thank for the bike's overall off-road stability, which is impressive for such a large motorcycle. Within a few miles I was fully engrossed in the fun of riding—the bike was consistent, stable, and responsive enough that I didn't need to allot much mental energy to the fundamentals of riding and instead was able to focus on choosing my line and enjoying the scenery. In my mind, that's the sign of a well-designed machine.
