A Motorcycle That Can Do Everything Can Also Capture My Heart
A powerful, versatile, and beautiful machine.
It’s been a long time since I’ve suited up and swung a leg over a motorcycle. But riding used to be a huge part of my life and when I see a bike as badass as the Ducati Multistrada striking a pose, it’s hard not to start thinking about wind and noise and everything excellent that comes with riding.

The short story on this particular bike is that it burps out an amazing 170 hp and 92 lb-ft of torque from its V4 Granturismo engine. The Multistrada name basically means the bike’s designed to be ridden on a variety of road surfaces. The semi-upright riding position looks pretty comfortable, actually. And speaking of comfort, this thing also has Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Blind Spot Detection (BSD), and a 6.5-inch TFT dashboard. The present/future of motos is pretty fancy! Then again, this is a pretty spendy piece of hardare: list is $28,995 which is a king’s ransom for a motorcycle.
But mostly I just wanted to share it because I love the way it looks, and that’s what the daily Feature Photo is all about my friends. Here’s a little hype video if you want to see some more of this thing:
