Ducati Multistrada 950 Four Way Comparison

Surprised this hasn't already been done by some other motorcycle publication, but SoloMoto took it upon themselves to compare four large trail bikes: Ducati Multistrada 950, Honda Africa Twin DCT, KTM 1090 Adventure, Suzuki V-Strom 1000 XT. It may not be in English, but Google translate worked pretty well.
Shame the Multistrada seems to vibrate more than the other bikes, but they do admit that it's a great all rounder with exceptional on road behavior and various ride modes.

Thanks for sharing man. Not sure why we havent seen any articles like this out of the U.S yet but thank goodness for google translate. Any owners on here agree with the vibration issues noted on the 950?

You can reduce the vibration a bit with some thick rubber washers. Yukon42 detailed the process, but it takes so much effort, I'd rather just deal with the vibrations, which aren't that bad:

Holy I had no idea that the process was so involved. Don't think the minor annoyance would be worth all the hassle. I saw recently that KTM has brought back two strokes...but for their smaller cc bikes.

I think it is a bit of a vibey bike especially when they are new. But I found that somewhere around the first service the bike became smoother. It's a non issue for me now.

I toured the French Alps on the 950 doing 1800 miles and experienced no vibration. I just purchased one, but have not picked it up yet. Hope my experience is the same as my 1800 miles. Absolutely no vibration at any speed that was obtrusive. I purposely stayed away fro the BMW800GS and XR1000 because of the buzz at highway speeds and vibration in the bars at 70mph.

Every review that I read, and I read and watched them all except this one noted in this post. None had any comments on vibration when reviewing the 950.

can some one elaborate on the vibration??
