Hey Shubz,

Great going man, keep revving

It's high time you put up a detailed ownership review of Leo like you did with your last two rides. I checked out the Multi at Ducati Bombay and feel its head and shoulders above its ilk.

The colour TFT display looks absolutely smashing mate.

Cheers

Thanks mate! I started on the ownership review. Didn't feel it had the punch so have it as .doc draft and haven't been able to find time to drive it in. lol.

The display is one of the major highlights of the 1200 S -- its simply amazing to have so many options to work on, so many settings to choose from. I have played with only a few settings as I have been busy riding with it. Will do some fiddling tweaking with the settings in a bit.

Look forward to your review then - as and when able

I believe there is an app for the Multi which enables another crazy amount of settings/functions via a mobile device with options to post on social media as well. Have you downloaded the app and do you use it?

I understand the ownership review for this beast will be a mammoth task, but, do complete it in as detailed a manner as possible.

Ride safe baba!

Cheers

Oh yes. There is this awesome App that captures and displays data among other performance parameters. Some of the screen shots taken while on Hyderabad ride are here.

Enjoy the ride and Congratulations once again.

Thanks Dhiraj bhai.

Its a joy leaning on this bike. I have data reading 33 when on rides to Yercaud. I am surprised that I could use 117 horses off the beast on the ride to Hyd and back.

Anybody here own a hyperstrada or hypermotard? Haven't seen any ownership reviews or experiences. I am particularly impressed by this jack of all trades bike and ofcourse the Ducati moniker.

Would be lovely if someone comes forward with ride impressions.

Apart from fellow bhpians gthang (Diavel Carbon) and Artem (Diavel Dark), I do not remember any other bhpian owning a Diavel in the forum. It would be great if they can clarify this.

And I must say, Aman bhai we are waiting for the ownership thread of your latest acquisition.
Hi dude, well there isn't any issue as such with the sprocket/ chain. The only deal is while on a higher gear at a lower RPM the chain bangs against the chain guard(i believe it is the chain guard) and it makes a bit of a noise. This can be avoided by riding the bike on a lower gear at higher RPM ! Basically ensuring the chain is taut at all times. Besides this there isn't any issue as such !

A couple of months after picking up the bike, my fuel sensor went kaput ! The same was replaced under warranty. Apparently this is an inherent problem with the Diavel and Ducati is trying to sort this issue out. For the time being they are only replacing the fuel sensor.

Let me know if anyone has any other doubts/ clarifications w.r.t the diavel, if I can't give any substantial information regarding the query I can definitely get it clarified from the other owners in the Ducati group.

Regards,

Artem

Thank you CGB,


Unfortunately I have not been able to put together an ownership review due to paucity of time. But will keep updating this thread.

Heat: In city conditions - on Touring Mode -- Inside of your thighs are sure to get scalded.

in Urban mode -- its a lot better.

In both modes the temperature could reach up to 105 C on the gauge and fan kicks in bringing it down to 99 C

On Highways - it hovers around the 60-75 mark. :-)

Just wake this thread up. Completed 5000 Kms. This must be the slowest 5000 mark I have crawled to!

There was a recall on certain VIN number for a faulty fuel sensor gauge -- It was replaced. Else there are no other issues to report. I alternate between Touring and Sport mode and after a few reads on Ducati forums, have decided to hang on to the Sport mode with control over the wrist.

I think someone at Ducati should be fired to those ugly looking exhaust pipes. Yes most people who will buy this bike will opt for a aftermarket exhaust but those are the ugliest ones I've seen on any bike ever!

Haha.. the ugly pipes are only for India bound machines I am guessing, to comply with the emission norms?

The US bound one's have underbelly exhausts just like the earlier versions.

Can they not have underbody or underseat exhausts which can conform to emission regulations? Was this the best they could come up with? They just stand out like a sore thumb on an otherwise beautiful bike.
Take the MV F3 for example, those are one of the best looking side exhausts I have ever seen.
