2013 DUCATI 1199 PANIGALE “TERRACORSA” | ME MY BIKE – Motorcyclist Magazine

A resurrected Panigale with knobbies?

Name: Arun Sharma

Age: 43

Home: Portland, Oregon

Occupation: Aficionado / Direttore Generale, MotoCorsa

A few months ago, a customer crashed his new Panigale S. The damage wasn’t major, so I bought it from him and made it into my track bike.

Every year I go with friends on an off-road adventure ride in southern Oregon. This year I was going to take a Multistrada, and I had it on the lift to install a set of Continental TKC 80 off-road tires. The Panigale was on the lift right next to it. One of my buddies stopped by, saw the two bikes side by side, and said, You should put those TKC 80s on the Panigale and take that.

I said, Why, yes, I should.

We built the bike in a week. We raised the suspension to give some ride height and softened the settings for as much travel as we could get. I put on a bunch of crash protection from SpeedyMoto and fabbed up a skidplatebecause I didn’t want to screw up the $3,700 Termignoni exhaustand the Ducati Performance comfort seat, which is critical.

Then I hit it with some military-looking spray paint from Home Depot.

We rode from Portland to southeastern Oregon, around Steens Mountain, then crossed into Nevada for a bit. Three days, 1,200 miles, and I guarantee you we went places no Ducati sportbike has ever gone before. There was this massive rainstorm a couple days before we got there, and there was big mud everywhere.

The Panigale was the only bike with knobbies, and there were some spots it went where the big adventure bikes couldn’t even make it through!

Most people love the bike; some people really hate it. I just love the idea of challenging what you can do with a Ducati. There’s this whole nose-in-the-air stigma surrounding Ducati owners, and I just like to show how that’s not true.

People who ride Ducatis love their motorcycles and ride them just as hard as the next guy.

Adventure Ducati Multistrada 1200 Toubkal by Affetto Ducati

Posted: February 19th 2014 by Arun Comments

Check out this adventure-ready Ducati Multistrada 1200 Holland’s Affetto Ducati. This just might be one of the coolest treatments we’ve seen for the Multistrada. MotoCorsa approved!

The bike, Toubkal, is named after the highest mountain peak in the Atlas Mountains of Southwest Morocco. Tastefully done with metallic red, black, and silver paint, the Toubkal looks like something that should have come from Borgo Panigale.

Equipped to go where the pavement ends, this Ducati Multistrada 1200 Toubkal features tubeless spoked wheels, proper panniers, and heavy duty crash protection. Plus, we give Affetto Ducati bonus points for the subtle meshing over the vents, stunning paint job, and carbon fiber windscreen.
