2016 Multistrada 1200 Technical Data
Ducati Testastretta DVT
The new 2016 Multistrada 1200 is powered by the brand-new revolutionary Ducati Testastretta DVT engine which adopts a Desmodromic continuous variable valve timing to optimize power and torque across a wider rpm band delivering an unprecedented combination of breath-taking-torque (132 Nm@7.000 rpm), class-leading power (160 Hp@9.000 rpm) , super-smoothness and low fuel consumption; the Desmodromic Variable Timing (DVT) is a double and continuous system applied for the first time to a motorcycle engine managing both exhaust and intake camshafts.
The new Multistrada 1200 incorporates the very latest innovative Ducati technologies, including the famous Ducati branded Riding Modes. The four Riding Modes (URBAN, TOURING, SPORT, ENDURO) are enabled by combining class-leading technologies such as: Ride-by-Wire (RbW), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), multi-calibration 9ME cornering ABS, Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) Evo, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) and the graphics on the instrument panel. The rider can change the character of the bike by selecting from the left-hand switchgear - even while riding - among four different pre-set configurations (Riding Modes) that best adapt to the riding style or riding conditions.
The chassis is designed to deliver high overall performance in a wide range of riding situations: the 1.529 mm of wheelbase ensures great abitability and keep the weight of the passenger and side paniers inside the wheelbase length, a considerable contribution to the motorcycle’s dynamic performance; a maximum lean angles of 47° to have fun on back roads; 180 mm of ground clearance makes the bike enjoyable in off-road; the total steering lock angle of 80° combined with a low weight and a perfect weight-balancing (50% front, 50% rear) makes tight maneuvers at low speeds, typical of urban environment, easy to manage.
