    Hello from the north east

    Just wanted to say hello, after all my years of biking I'm posting on a forum for only the second time. After a couple of Multistradas I'm back on my fourth Honda V4. Looking forward to interacting with you guys and sharing the joys on owning a Crossrunner. I have a 2016 model in red bought from a good guy in Derby, 4,500 mile and most of the extras I want.

    Hi Mamamali

    I'm currently in Stockton temporarily but will be moving over permanently in mid-April.
    Must get together over a 'parmo'

    Regards

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys, I look forward to some banter. It looks like a quiet forum which suits me as I seldom log on. John, I'd be happy to meet up in the neat future once you get settled in, careful with them parmo's mind... reasty I'll give you a comparison when I've had chance to get some miles on the CR, just recovering from a motorcycle accident so not managed to get many miles on it yet but first impressions are;

    Opps;

    1. Engine smoother and a bit more flexible on the CR
    2. gearbox feels like a swiss watch after the last two Ducatis
    3. Self cancelling indicators work well and are made for me as I'm always leaving them on
    4. switchgear is an improvement on the CR
    5. The Multi wins on comfort, it is the most comfortable bike I have ever owned
    6. The V twin has a kick and so much torque out of corners which the CR is no match for
    7. Handling and stopping are a different league on the multi, it really is very good to go fast on
    8. In real road riding and touring I'd doubt I will see much difference TBH making point 6 and 7 a little irrelevant
    9. Ownership costs I expect to be significantly lower on the CR, the multi needed more TLC than it's Japanese cousins and the servicing and repair costs were a great deal more than on any other bike I have ever owned. They were pretty reliable but before I binned the last one it need an inlet cam, rocker and follower which set me back several hundred pounds which was disappointing on a 5 year old bike with 30,000 mile on.
    10. From a ducati dealer the 30,000 mile service was quoted at just over £1,000...
    11. The finish and attention to detail are probably on par but for some reason the CR seems more like the quality product and I can't explain why that it, just the way it makes me feel I think
    12. Finally, I've likened the Multi to a racy slim Italian supermodel and the CR as a slightly overweight Japanese yummy mummy who can still give you a run for your money when the mode takes you  :001:

     :400:I agree with the multi being the most comfortable ,yes it's got gobs of torque but it does have a1200 motor compared to 800 to start with . It's nice to have the xtra torque and that would be my only wish for the crossrunner , but I'll have to just keeping giving it the extra beans exploring the lovely vetch rpm ,great fun .
