The award-winning and highly successful Ducati Multistrada 1200 moves into 2011 having proved its
innovative concept and established itself as a new industry benchmark. Combining ground-breaking design and unprecedented technology,
the Multistrada’s Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro riding modes enable a truly enjoyable and customisable riding experience separated by just one click.
The ground-breaking four-bikes-in-one design makes instant adjustment to power and torque delivery
in addition to electronic adjustment of suspension settings and traction control,
transforming the Multistrada 1200 to the rider’s needs, and not the other way around.
Hailed as a true ‘game-changing’ motorcycle, the technologically-advanced Multistrada 1200
has attracted all types of riders by opening up the borders between motorcycle categories.
With the 150hp Testastretta 11° engine, a class-leading dry weight of just 189kg (417lb)
and the application of advanced ergonomics, the Multistrada 1200 is not only powerful and playful,
but also a comfortable and versatile adventure on two wheels.
The Multistrada 1200 offers ABS as optional, while the flagship Multistrada 1200 S presents
ABS and Ducati Electronic Suspension by Öhlins as standard equipment.
The four-bikes-in-one concept is achieved by selecting, even while riding, from a choice of four pre-et
modes programmed to instantly change the engine character and chassis set-up of the Multistrada 1200.
The four modes are made possible by combining a number of class-leading technologies.
An electronic Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system administers different mappings to regulate power delivery by interpreting the rider’s throttle input,
while the world-beating Ducati Traction Control system (DTC) uses eight levels of system interaction to enhance control by reducing wheel-spin.
For the ‘S’ version, Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES), by Öhlins, instantly configures the suspension set-up with electronic adjustment.
At the touch of a button, four different motorcycles to suit the specific needs of the rider and not the other way around.
The Sport riding mode provides the rider with an adrenalin-fuelled 150hp ride with a sport-oriented throttle response and, on the ‘S’ version, an instant high performance suspension set-up. In character with its Superbike bloodline, the sport mode also changes the DTC system intervention to level 4 for expert riders whose ‘comfort zone’ is a little closer to the limit.
The Touring riding mode is also programmed to produce 150hp, however, the power characteristics are designed in a touring configuration with a smoother, more user-friendly delivery. Active safety is enhanced by increasing DTC system intervention to level 5, specifically intended for an enjoyable and relaxing ride and, on the ‘S’ version, the suspension automatically dials-in a set-up ideal for long distance touring, ensuring maximum comfort for both the rider and passenger.
As navigation of the urban jungle can require an even more user-friendly motorcycle, the Urban riding mode instantly transforms the Multistrada 1200 into the most manageable, everyday transport. Power output is reduced to 100hp, and the suspension, on the ‘S’ version, to a setting perfect for tackling the maze of city streets full of speed bumps and drain covers. DTC is further enhanced to level 6 to provide high system intervention during the most chaotic of stop-start traffic.
Should the journey aboard the Multistrada 1200 leave the beaten track, it has the capability to take off-road routes in its stride. Agile and lightweight and with high, wide handlebars, serrated footrests and specially designed tyres, the Multistrada also features an Enduro riding mode which instantly produces a smooth 100hp engine, immediately dials-in an appropriate suspension setting on the ‘S’ version and reduces the DTC system to level 2 for minimal intervention.
