Ducati's new....cruiser??

Ducati just released its first ever cruiser motorcycle. kind of. it's basically their sport bike with some cruiser personality mated to it. forward foot controls, longer wheelbase, large gas tank, belt drive, and a touring mode. thoughts?

Doesn't really fit my definition of cruiser but it looks like a nice ride.

My brother in law got the xdiaval s a few weeks ago. Traded in his street fighter. It is fast as h***. The only relation to a cruiser is the riding position..sort of. The bike has adjustments to move the controls back to less of a cruiser position.
