The Multistrada gets an upgrade with the new Ducati Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) 1262 cu cm engine, new chassis, more advanced electronics, and an aesthetic update that includes new fairing panels and lighter, sportier looking wheels. As soon as it was launched back in 2010, the Multistrada revolutionised the motorcycling world by offering four bikes in one: from sport bike to long-distance tourer, from everyday runabout to enduro. With its four souls, many new features and Riding Modes, the Multistrada 1260 brings a whole new level of performance, ease of riding, comfort and fun.
The 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT engine is Euro 4 approved and gives ample low-to-mid range torque for even better rideability in everyday use. With 85% of the torque available at 3,500 rpm, delivery at 5,500 rpm is 18% higher compared to the predecessor model. This means the Multistrada 1260 offers the highest torque output in its class at 4,000 rpm, i.e. in the most frequently used rpm range.
