For Sale: Ducati Multistrada 1000DS

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.

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

Honesty box:

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.
