In regular use for local rides into the peaks so mileage may increase a little till sold.
Love this bike, especially the torque for the roll on lazy power out of corners. Literally nothing like a big V Twin to put a smile on your face every single ride, especially with the loud and rude exhaust!
Will suit a taller rider who is moving up from a 600 and wants a bit more oomph but still an aggressive sporty ride. This is not a soft bike like the tracer or tiger, its an engaging ride full of Ducati charm!
She’s in good condition for her age. Not in a rush to sell, but I’ve had her 4 years and fancy a change.
Ducati Multistrada 1000DS 2004
MOT till June 2023
82 Nm torque
Single side swing arm
Adjustable front and rear suspension
Mivv dual exhausts (they sound amazing!) inc baffles to make them a little quieter but never had an issue without them.
Original exhaust included in sale
Givi E45 litre top box and rack will hold 2x helmets easily
Handlebar risers and ProTaper flat bars for a more supermoto style riding position
Belts changed in Nov 2019 by Ducati in Bicester at 18k miles
Hydraulic clutch slave assembly replaced last year with new OEM parts
Iridium spark plugs, oil and filters done at start of this season
Replaced the rear shock in Dec for good condition 2nd hand spare
Brakes and tyres have plenty of life in them
Chain and sprockets also in very good condition
New battery at start of season
Indicator lamp on the dash works but basically invisible, so its easy to leave indicators on.
Small fuel leak from around the fuel pump I’m currently investigating, but I suspect its just a seal which will be replaced if not sold soon.
Some paint flecks on the engine from aluminium corrosion, but find me a 2004 bike without a bit of this
Small paint bubbles on the tank on the logo, barely noticeable
Sometimes hard starting in the cold (but I think thats true of most italian ladies) so I put a new battery on at the start of the season and not had an issue since
I’ve tried to give as much info as possible so there are no surprises. This bike has been cared for and enjoyed so I know the next owner will be very happy.
