You can crunch these numbers all day and miss the big picture. The Multistrada can't beat the Interceptor or R6 in their strongest suits in a straight fight. They're here as reference points. What the Multi can deliver is comfortably stunning back-road performance, utter humiliation to unwary super-sport poseurs, work-week practicality and singular Ducati style. On these merits, it's an out-of-the-park, grand slam home run. Unique, and uniquely accommodating, this is a motorcycle that does almost everything well. In English, compromise usually means you give up more than you get. In the Multistrada, Ducati's translation is different. For $11,999, you get just about everything.
