Multistrada

The 2014 Ducati Multistrada family continues the technically advanced and award-winning range with the Multistrada 1200, 1200 S Touring, 1200 S Granturismo and 1200 S Pikes Peak. All models of this multi-tasking motorcycle feature confidence-inspiring, intelligent electronics to ensure they are instantly ready for every road, all S versions also feature the advanced Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS).

The range signals the latest stage of the Multistrada adventure with a long list of fascinating and high-tech features that continue the model’s reputation for industry-changing innovation. They include the second generation Testastretta 11° DS engine and the Bosch ABS 9ME braking system with full Riding Mode integration.

The 2014 range includes the Multistrada 1200 with the associated Riding Mode technologies of Ride-by-Wire (R-b-W), Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and ABS, while the Multistrada 1200 S Touring is equipped with Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS), R-b-W, DTC and ABS with additional side luggage, heated grips and centre stand.

The Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak continues to celebrate the sporting side of the model’s character with a replica of the famous mountain race bike in its stunning race-winning livery.

The ‘S’ versions of the Multistrada 1200 are equipped with electronic 48mm Sachs front forks and rear single shock, both featuring the new Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) system. The innovative technology features a semi-active suspension management that constantly re-adjusts damping to maintain optimum vehicle composure – as if the motorcycle was suspended from the sky.

The innovative system removes the compromise of conventional, passive suspension by continuously re-evaluating the dynamic relationship between the wheel following the road surface and the comfort provided by a constantly steady vehicle body. With the intelligent DSS system, many of the negative attributes of a soft or hard set-up are eliminated without compromising performance in the environments for which they were intended.

A lighter motorcycle enables maximum performance both in terms of dynamic behaviour and safety by braking in a shorter distance, accelerating faster and being easier to steer. Every single component of the Multistrada 1200, therefore, has been designed to achieve weight reduction without compromising its load-bearing capacity. With a dry weight of just 194kg (428lb)* the Multistrada 1200 is lighter than any other road enduro, touring or sport touring bike currently available in this category. The lightweight and excellent chassis set-up ensures exceptional handling, a key factor for Sport, Touring, Urban or Enduro riding.
