The new version of the potent travel enduro - the strongest multi! The Ducati Multistrada 1200 is an impressive motorcycle - 150 hp in a travel enduro were frightening and fascinating at their debut. Obviously, this is as much for the competition and too much force, so that the "multi" is still the strongest major Enduro is. In the meantime, she was indeed overtaken by the KTM 1190 Adventure, but not obsolete. The new KTM 1290 Super Adventure is now looked at short notice as the Mattighofen would dethrone the Bolognese - as the Italians countered immediately and terminate in 2015 a new Multistrada 1200, which establishes the order again with its 160 hp. The throne is (even if it has to be re-shared with the woman) Ducati occupied!
Performance, however, is not known to all, especially in a travel enduro that is supposed to operate on longer routes, peak power is not the primary goal. For the new Multistrada 1200 was even more crowded with electronic features than the predecessor - one can hardly believe it. Riding Modes, Power Modes, Ride-by-wire, and the Safety Pack, which includes the traction control system DTC and ABS, an adjustable, are already known. What is new is that the anti-blocking system is like that work on the KTM 1190 Adventure also in corners and DWC (Ducati Wheelie Cotrol) said control unit to the power so far chastise that the front wheel does not rise - with 160 hp also on a comfortable travel Enduro legitimate.
Headlights, TFT display and adaptive suspension are standard!
All this and a cruise control are standard equipment on the Multistrada 1200, at the Multistrada 1200 S enumerating goes, however blithely: all-LED headlights, which have even integrated a cornering light, the advanced adaptive chassis "Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evo (DSS ), Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) and to the 1199 Panigale (in future 1299 Panigale) now also on the Multistrada 1200 S a colorful, easy to read TFT display.
Four packages for any occasion
Of course, there is also optional packages that sweeten the sport or traveling on the new Multistrada 1200 and 1200 S: The Touring Package includes heated grips, luggage and a main stand, the sports package a Termignoni exhaust and a lot of carbon, the Urban package top case, tank bag and USB port and the Enduro package auxiliary lights and cool parts of Touratech, such as engine and radiator, side stand enlargement and terrain footpegs.
The Multistrada 1200 S Dair is renewed
Also the model Multistrada 1200 S Dair is transferred to the new Modellamilie and distinguished addition to the features of the Multistrada 1200 S by the sensors and electronics units of Dair system from. About the look of the new Multistrada can be as already arguing with the predecessor, the front looks even extremely clumsy on some photos, but may well be due to a bad camera angle. About beautiful or ugly you should please decide only at the personal meeting with the travel-loving Italian woman.
