Ducati Multistrada 1200 ride and pics

As we’re not sold on the Ducati Multistrada all-things-to-all-people, we thought we’d a closer look at the Multistrada our colleagues at Motoblog.it had the opportunity to do. up, the look of the bike is not to everyone’s although perhaps necessary for the of bike it is. While hardly a in …, superbike design, the does give off a functional, air.

In an interesting comparison the Ducati Hypermotard, the Multistrada is as being more versatile, we would expect, but also powerful without gaining too weight. It’s a fun bike, in touring and sports style on the cornering well and with a control that’s not invasive. on the technological front, the ABS is very managed, and overall electronic weren’t a problem.

The great thing about the is that the four modes are very different, so that you just bought a bike a fancy switch that doesn’t do very much. Two out of the modes have 50 hp less, you can really feel, although the control is less noticeable you would need a separate day to around with that to understand its influence on the bike.

The riding position of the Multistrada may you a little perplexed. It’s more sports Ducati than touring model, a harder seat, which priority to cornering and more fun riding. However, a softer setting in the Touring mode this problem a little, a distribution is smoother. In the Sports and modes, you have a full 150 hp at disposition, which is almost too for a bike of this kind.

The Urban mode was a particular with some great and cornering perfect for the riff-raff of the city.

A comparison with the BMW is inevitable, even if they are two different bikes. The GS1200 is a and more comfortable bike, the Multistrada still has that Ducati sports feel. the off-road aspects of the Multistrada are enough, the GS1200 outperforms it in segment.

It really depends on — the Multistrada, for example, has a better performance on the road the GS1200, so this would come down to why you’re it and your riding style we’re at it, the KTM SMT is a better comparison).

The Multistrada has good fuel and range off its 20 litre tank. If doing an average 120 km/hr, you get 20 km out of litre. There is enough for a passenger, although you don’t get so protection from the wind, not the same aerodynamics and comfort as an tourer.

In terms of price, the level model is competitive and well within the range of bikes in this segment. The S is a little on the pricey side, given that it comes a package that is already put rather than more to choose your own options. But is probably just a marketing from Ducati.

Overall, the Multistrada is astonishing for its versatility. While the idea was for an adaptable bike to match conditions and situations, whether could equally pull off was another issue. It seems might just have it, and the Multistrada, if it convinces, could be a successful model for such a market entrant.
