The Aprilia 750 Dorsoduro is another guilty desire of mine, as is the BMW S1000XR.
If I ever give up trail riding I'll likely replace my DRZ with the Dorsoduro, and regardless in 2019 I'll likely replace my wee will the BMW, or a Multistrada, or a.......... :dl_hyperhysteria: :grin:

I did consider the XR and would  ave test ridden one if the Multistrada hadn't lived up to expectations. I'm still running her in. I took her out yesterday for a run that I have done with the Glee many times (narrow rough country lanes). The suspension is amazing,it handles like a dream. It came back absolutely plastered with grime. Next purchase will be the rear half of the front mudguard (which doesn't come with the bike :icon_exclaim:); all the stones and crap spray the radiator???
