When the Ducati SportClassics were introduced in 2005, they teased the GT1000 as a model for 2006 and I could hardly wait. In fact, I couldn’t wait–and that’s why I ended up with the 2006 Multistrada 620. The GT hit showrooms about 8 months after my Multi landed in the garage. I got to test ride it in 2007 and oh man did I ever want to swap in the worst way. I thought it was probably about the perfect Ducati for me–and still fantasize about it now–even wrote a review after the ride.
My two favorite color schemes are the original deep charcoal and the two-tone black and beige introduced in 2007. In fact, the that 2007 version with the accessory windscreen and soft leather-like saddle bags would be on my short list of bikes to own as a touring bike.
Here’s a nice shot of GT1000.
