Ok, so I'm new to the forum, but not to the joys of GRiSO ownership. Had a 2008 1200 which I kept for a year and always regretted selling. Thought I'd reached biking nirvana earlier this year when I got a 2015 Multistrada S. it seemed great on the test ride, but after a few days I knew I'd made a major cock-up. It has absolutely zero charisma. If I'd wanted a Honda, I'd have got a Honda. Needing a major injection of character, there was only one place to look, so I traded it in for a new GRiSO SE, and couldn't be happier. It's every bit as good as I remembered - but you all know that, right?!
Hope to join in some events in the UK in 2016. Otherwise, just loving being back on a GRiSO. Big, cheesy grin of a motorbike..

Welcome back mate, my thoughts exactly on modern Dukes. They are an amazing bit of technology and have blistering performance, but they lack charisma (well at least the road bike do, the super sports are gorgeous) and around here any way are very common.

Interesting, I've been considering a great deal on a new Aprilia Caponord but find it lacks character as well (and the Multi is much more fun). Timely post and welcome back!

Shame. Ducatis lacking charisma... Never thought that it would happen.

Welcome back to the famiglia.
Computers can help develop lite weight, big HP and give us endless technology for safety and comfort, but you can't develop something with soul by relying on AI that doesn't know what "soul" is.
They say human error does not compute, neither does the magic created by gifted engineers.
Long live the GRiSO!
