Take heed BMW, KTM and even Triumph...Ducati just got more serious about producing an adventure bike with more off-road credibility.
New for 2018, the Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro now features a plethora of new elements that will be as impressive in the dirt as they are on paper. Let's start with the Pirelli SCORPION™ Rally tires, fitted as standard: 120/70 R19 at the front, and 170/60 R17 at the rear.
Other features include bull bars by Touratech with LED lights, a low windscreen, and performance exhaust by Termignoni (compliant with EU standards). The bike is powered by the proven 152 hp Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) engine, and features Riding Mode technology with the ability to switch to Enduro, Touring, Sport and Urban modes.
The Multistrada Pro also comes with ABS Cornering, Cornering Lights (DCL), Traction Control (DTC), Wheelie Control (DWC) and the semi-active Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) for smoother uphill starts.
No word on list price, but it is a Ducati, so expect a premium. Check out the video to get the feel for this new bike.
