Render: Ducati Multistrada 1200 Gets a Nose Job

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

By now you’ve surely seen the new 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200, which was launched at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan. Replacing the collectively agreed upon ugly Multistrada, the MS 1200 also has questionable taste in its design. Love it or hate it, the new Multistrada 1200 competes with the BMW GS at every turn, even in the ugliest bike category.

But what if the petruding beak of an air intake was cut short? Could that make this ugly duckling into a swan? A man named Marco thought so, and set out to work on re-imagining the Ducati Multistrada 1200 with a few more conventional lines. The result is a marked improvement in our book, although Ducati’s version continues to grow on us.
