Ducati unveils Multistrada 1200 Enduro


D4---Ducati-Multistrada20160412The Multistrada 1200 Enduro completes the multi-bike concept introduced by Ducati in 2010. Born to be unstoppable on any terrain, the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is a full-optional bike designed to satisfy even the most demanding globetrotter. Moreover, this maxi-enduro has specifically been developed and built to handle the stress and strain of off-road riding. Ducati test riders have put the Multistrada 1200 Enduro through its paces under the most extreme riding conditions to ensure reliability in any situation, while maintaining the ride quality and fun one expects from a Ducati.

Thanks to spoked wheels – 19 inches at the front and 17 inches at the rear – the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is perfect for long-distance adventures. Featuring electronic semi-active Sachs suspension (front and rear) and a 30-liter fuel tank, the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is unstoppable on any terrain and has a range that can exceed 450 kilometers (280 miles).

The Multistrada 1200 Enduro marks Ducati’s entry into a new market segment, that of the maxi-enduro tourers; however there’s been no compromising on Ducati style and technology. The smart, sports look has been renewed and upgraded with numerous off-road features. The electronics package is everything a rider could wish for, thanks to the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), developed by Bosch, which dynamically measures pitch and roll angles and acceleration along the thres axes, raising performance and safety standards even further.

On the Multistrada 1200 Enduro Cornering ABS (anti-lock brake syste), Cornering Lights (DCL), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) and the semi-active Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) Evolution system with 200 millimeters of wheel travel all come as standard. Moreover, for the very first time on a Ducati, Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) has been introduced to aid uphill starts.

Tested and developed under the most extreme conditions, the Multistrada 1200 Enduro features the excellent, hard-wearing Multistrada 1200 frame together with a new twin-sided swingarm. The bike is powered by the tried and tested 160-horsepower Ducati Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) engine with Euro 4 type approval, now equipped with a new exhaust system. Thanks to Riding Mode technology (Enduro, Touring, Sport and Urban), the Multistrada 1200 Enduro offers that same four- bikes-in-one spirit that has made the Ducati multibike such a winner.

Other as-standard features on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro include electronic speed control and the Bluetooth module; the latter, via the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), lets riders connect the bike to a smart phone and manage key multimedia functions (incoming calls, text messaging, music) via the switchgear and display information on the TFT dashboard.

Furthermore, thanks to the standard Bluetooth connection on the Multistrada Enduro, the new Multistrada Link App, available for iOS and soon also for Android, allows to connect your smartphone and record data of the bike and road itineraries. Data such as speed, lean angle, power and consumption can be displayed directly on the map and riding diary, allowing you to relive all your riding emotions, turn after turn.

The Multistrada 1200 Enduro comes in three different colors (Ducati Red, Phantom Grey and Star White Silk) and can be personalized with items from the comprehensive Ducati Performance accessory catalogue by Touratech which includes the four Enduro, Touring, Sport and Urban packages.
