My win­ter Du­cati…

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

After what turned out to be a mild win­ter I wanted to buy a sec­ond bike to pro­tect my 2015 Du­cati Mon­ster 821. Sev­eral weeks look­ing on ebay re­vealed nu­mer­ous hope­fuls and I set­tled on a 2005 Du­cati 620 Mul­tistrada with 9400 miles on the clock and all three keys, but very lit­tle his­tory. The bike was a trade-in and sold as seen which seemed fine – un­til I rode off. There was lit­tle power. In­ter­net re­search was all doom and gloom sug­gest­ing coils, ECU and worse but I went back to ba­sics and it turned out to be a dodgy plug! I use this bike on the daily 46-mile com­mute and it’s proved to be very re­li­able dur­ing the last 4000 miles and fun to ride. Best of all I now have the choice of two Du­catis to make the thought of hav­ing to go to work more bear­able. Dean Dick, email
