Taste Test: 2018 Harley-Davidson FLHTK Ultra Limited 107

You can’t get anymore grander than this! The FLHTK Ultra Limited is one of the trifectas of big, luxurious, monster tourers from Harley-Davidson!

With almost all the toys standard on this de-facto couples retreat cruiser, the Ultra makes it one of the icons of American motorcycle culture.

With an innovative yet torquey Milwaukee Eight 107 engine at the helm, it’s a calmer version compared to the ruckus and thirsty 114 version. With so many rivals on this ‘ultra’ luxurious Tourer category with the like like of its neighbor the Indian Roadmaster, the Japanese Honda Gold Wing, and the German BMW K1600 GTL.

Since I’ve already ridden its sibling, the Street Glide 107 on my previous video, how does this living American icon compare?

[NOTE: Of course, I’ve ridden the 2018 model when it was new. By now there were several updates of the Ultra Limited 107 since then.]

Taste Test: 2020 Ducati Multistrada 1260 (Base)

Besides the Multistrada 950, the entry-point to the big Multistrada 1200-league is this ‘Base’ model. With stiff competition with KTM, BMW, & Aprilia; this base model receives its latest Testastretta 1262 DVT engine.

Being Ducati, like its Scrambler line; the Multistrada 1200 line of adventure bikes has a plethora of choices that may confuse the casual bike fan. Good thing that Ducati’s website explains their differences clearly.

So how does this compare to its direct rivals like the S1000 XR, 1290 Super Adventure S, Caponord 1200, or even the mild Versys 1000? Will this base model feel like a bargain or a rip-off!?
