Multistrada Design

Flowing lines and essential surfaces create a volume difference between the front and rear: the final result is a dynamic, sporty design.

The striking front view is characterised by an aggressive, high-tech headlight which, together with the compact rear light with light-guide effect, are iconic features of the new 2015 Multistrada.

The muscular front is in contrast with the streamlined tail, enhanced by the low-slung exhaust: made of top quality die-cast aluminium, it is left in full view to integrate the side luggage supports.

Full LED Lights

Multistrada Engine

Testastretta DVT with Desmodromic Variable Timing

ducati multistrada manchester uk

Introducing the Ducati Testastretta DVT, the first engine equipped with the revolutionary Desmodromic Variable Timing (DVT). It delivers an unprecedented combination of breathtaking torque, class-leading power, super-smoothness and low fuel consumption.

The system can continuously vary the position between the camshafts and the crankshaft in the range between minimum and maximum overlap. Furthermore the system has the ability to independently vary the intake and exhaust cams, resulting in an infinite number of possible configurations.

The ECU mapping has been developed to select the position that optimizes power delivery, torque, smoothness, and fuel efficiency for the rider’s every throttle command. The enjoyment of riding, reliability and maximum containment of maintenance costs are among the main criteria that drive every engineering project in Ducati.

The Testastretta DVT engine is a state-of-the-art product. Its principal maintenance intervals are set at 30,000 km/18,000 miles. Any street you’d like, without second thoughts.

Multistrada Technology

Advanced technology for maximum riding enjoyment and safety. The electronics of the new Multistrada 1200 rewrite the concept of dynamic control of the bike, without forgetting riding comfort and enjoyment...

Ducati Cornering Lights

On entering a curve, a dedicated LED automatically lights up in the direction of the road, optimising illumination of the path. No more steering in the dark.

Cruise control

All bikes are equipped with an electronic speed control, that can be set up by the rider using the buttons integrated into the control panel of the handlebar.

Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) Evo

DSS technology maintains a set-up that is constantly independent from the road surface, minimising oscillations. On the new Multistrada the DSS system has been further enhanced, meaning you no longer have to compromise between performance and riding comfort.*
*Available on the Multistrada 1200 S

Hands free

To switch on the Multistrada, simply approach the bike with the electronic key in your pocket. The bike recognises the key and turns itself on, and you think about riding.

Cornering ABS

The revolutionary ABS cornering, thanks to communication with the chassis's inertial platform, allows the system to function even through corners, improving active safety in all conditions.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)

In just a few thousandths of a second, DTC is able to measure and control rear wheel skidding, thus considerably increasing the performance and active safety of the bike.

Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC)

Adjustable on 8 levels and derived from that of the 1199 Superleggera, the DWC analyses bike set-up and manages the torque so as to ensure maximum acceleration in safety.

D|Air® system

Thanks to special sensors, the Multistrada 1200 D|Air recognises the typical signs of a crash on the road. The airbags incorporated in the D|Air® clothing (available separately from the bike) activate, ensuring protection of the rider's and passenger's vital parts.*
*Available on the Multistrada 1200 S D|Air

Ducati Multimedia System

As soon as you sit in the saddle, your smartphone will automatically connect to your motorcycle via Bluetooth: phone calls and the media player can be handled with handlebar buttons, while the caller name or title of the track being played are displayed on the dashboard. You will also be warned of new incoming text messages. Thanks to the Multistrada Link App for Android and IOS, the DMS will also provide access to a full set of functions, using the data acquired from the motorcycle to enhance, integrate and share your Multistrada riding experience.
