Ducati Review

Ducati launched its Ducati Multistrada 1200 week in Bilbao, Spain, journalist to grab some impressions of the revised motorcycle.

enough, Ducati has upgraded the engine to achieve a smoother response, and increased it by five 7500 rpm. The new Testastretta II DS now 56 ft. lbs. of torque compared to 53 ft. offered in last year’s Ducati attributes the increased to full vaporization from the fuel injectors and the reintroduction of the spark.

However, it’s the new Skyhook that’s the talk of the town, and a good test session in the of Spain, I’m definitely a big fan. in conjunction with the traction and the latest ABS system, it’s to set a foot wrong on the 2013 Multistrada 1200 S Touring above).

The Skyhook suspension Sachs works by using algorithms available to us in this era of tech riding aids. The creates an imaginary ground so to say suspended in the air above the vehicle.

This way the Skyhook can continuously this zone with actually happening on the ground the wheels. Compression and rebound can be automatically within milliseconds to any change in road surface. even an enduro mode you really run out of road.

In the real the Skyhook suspension system is a in best practice usage of tech riding aids, and I love it.

The Multistrada 1200 S is quite a sporty package, but just a few button clicks you can it to a full on comfy touring The new push and slide wind solution is miles better the old solution, and now you can with one hand the screen while on the move. not electrical but pretty good for a solution.

The other two new Multistrada models are the S Granturismo and the 1200 S Pikes Only the three S models get the new suspension. Unfortunately, neither the GT or Peak were available for us to in Bilbao, and the GT will not hit production November 2012.

Ducati told us that the should start to hit dealers by 2013. The differences to the Touring that I have tested are practical ones such as a 73 luggage system (58 litre on the and a 48 litre topbox. The Granturismo debuts Pirelli’s new Angel GT tires, which promise 15 more mileage to the Angel ST

The Pikes Peak version is less than an Adventure and weighs in at 12 kilos less the standard 1200 S Touring Not one you would want to spoil the on by adding bags and hence as limited in usage as a real It looks great though and I’d to race up a mountain or two on it one day.
