If you’re an experienced motorcycle enthusiast, you’ve probably pigeonholed these new Honda CTXs as just beginner’s bikes and are about turn the page. Not so fast.

If, as the saying goes, four wheels move the body but two wheels move the soul, then the Ducati Multistrada 1200—a snarling, sexy, technological tour de force—gives my soul whiplash.
