Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Touring/ BMW Adventure/ Yamaha Super Ténéré

**EDIT** ....which one can I get the best deal/ bang-for-the-buck/ and where to purchase either???

I would go Yamaha or Ducati although I am biased to the Multistrada.

Cant go wrong with any of the 3 you picked. Personal preference I would choose the BMW. Or whichever ergonomically fits you the best.

Actually Mike, buy one of each and I'll help you form an opinion by riding one, each for a week, then providing a comprehensive review that can be published in IH Magazine.

And whichever one he's not riding, I'll ride.

Well, since Chris and SV signed on, I'll take the third bike. Perhaps we can recreate Ewan McGregor's "Long Way Round" and/or "Long Way Down." Then we'll know for certain which is the best of the three.

Better go home and start packing...

I am going to have to disagree. Duc engineering against BMW no way the Duc is better. Maybe better at breaking down that's possible.

you have that backwards. New BMW is old Duc reliability and maintenance. New Duc is old BMW reliability and maintenance.

All 3 are great. Go sit on each of them to figure out which is more comfortable.

I have a brand new Duc. And it's not a very well built machine. Has all kinds of quirks. I even brought up the issues with the transmission with a service guy at Battley and his answer. "It's in spec, but just so you know, Duc transmission are just a little better the Harley's transmission."

Spending money that was not mine I'd get the duc in a different color. Lots of storage options for the yami:

For a cross-country trip lasting a few weeks, I would not use any listed. Think wide seat and wind protection.

My $$$, I'd buy a beat up st1300 and a few cans of hi-viz rattle can.

edit:
bang for buck, yami
