Multistrada 1200S Review 1

The Ducati Multistrada 1200 has subject to so much hype we feel we know what to before slinging a leg over the However just as with overly promoted movies, no how good it is, it could easily when you get to see for yourself. Ducati Today took advantage of the 1200 National Premiere and Ducati Motorcycles of Atlanta’s to find out first hand.

1 of our Multistrada 1200 Review is the jump.

No it wasn’t the earth For a second I couldn’t work out was happening. And then, I realized selecting ‘Enduro’ mode amongst the four different modes available was causing motors to automatically raise the the and rear spring preload and the ride height of the new 2010 Multistrada 1200.

I guess would be quite the embarrassment if a rider were to do this to find they could no touch the ground!

For so long, the Bologna twins been associated with a more pure style of than their cheaper, alternatives. Two cylinders, not four, eschewing liquid cooling and more than 2 valves. And as is so the case with purity, compromise on the part of the rider was

Not any more. The Ducati Multistrada is definitely not your father’s

A technological tour de force, the new has just about every convenience or safety helper you can of thrown at it. Adjustable Traction ABS brakes, electronically adjustable a proximity aware ignition key just needs to be on your and ride by wire throttle is a key component in allowing four riding modes dubbed ‘Sport’, ‘Touring’ and ‘Enduro’ you can select while riding.

than that it is only a of a switch to adjust for the addition of a luggage or both. Who would thought that the race ECU only traction control seen on the homologation special 1098R would be the prelude to all

The immediate impact of this for me was not how to start the bike. It turns out you down the switch on the right which wakes up the electronics. You are treated to a light show as powers up. Next you slide the back up which locks a click and reveals the start below it.

The Testastretta 11º engine up immediately and settles into an idle. The bike is setup in power, urban mode restricts the horses to just so I use the left push button on the bar to through to Sport’ and hold for a few to allow it to select.

The light could be Japanese (yes is a compliment!) and the engine snicks first. With a crowd of enthusiasts watching it is always a nerve wracking to move off on a you’ve never been on Not to worry.

The light clutch is attached to a smooth and precise wet clutch and the pokey motor has enough poke to move off just above idle. The low balance is so good and feels so that later I’ll at how long I can stay stopped both feet on the pegs at just for the fun of it.

Ducati claims the Multistrada makes more power the 1198 up to 6,000rpm and I have no to doubt them. What is impressive than thus and apparent, is how much more the changes in valve overlap made the low speed running of the All large capacity twins from lumpy running low but this is as good as I’ve sampled.

The Multi develops easy to modulate power makes commuting a breeze and fun on a I’ll say that again. I had fun around town on a 4-valve With judicious use of the throttle the responds smoothly and with urgency from as low as 2,500rpm in 4th and will roll-on quite in 6th from 3,000rpm and 50mph or so. My tuned and optimized termi Monster S4RS really the revs to start with a 4 in the gears.

And finally Bologna have that mirrors should much more than of elbow’. The New Multi’s mirrors are

Great handling starts light weight and the Multi is lacking in avoir dupois for class of bike and feels it. Wide handlebars help, the bike can be turned rapidly little effort. If you’ve the Multistrada 1100 before it is sporty than that I liken it to what I imagine a would feel like if it had which is to say, frisky and but never intimidating.

The best I can pay the riding position is to say I never it during my entire ride. It is quite sit up and beg for a Ducati and so you merely your cheek a little and there and lean over to through turns rather stick your knee out and get all Fabrizio .

Still you can hustle on this It may not look like a Superbike but a rider is going to keep up anything. The combination of accurate easy turn in due to the bar leverage and a punchy power delivery the Multi loves to blast out of What a coincidence.

So do I. The engine ideal for this allowing you to up the throttle early and then the engine in the meaty middle of the as you accelerate and stand back up. By the you can apply full throttle the is picking up revs at a great and storming towards the horizon. The is 90% of riders would be better off this engine in their than the 20bhp stronger it comes with.

Whilst you mug the unsuspecting sportbike rider on mere ‘Adventure Tourer’ you can in the soundtrack. Ducati makes a big about tuning the sound on bike but the Multi does great (hear the Multistrada sound for yourself ) and is the first I’d be tempted to leave well alone. Sacrilege, I know.

The stock exhaust even good with the twin side exit muffler none of the bulbous lumps seem par for the course these on other brands.

So far so good. So Not to Love? Continue on to Part 2 of the Multistrada 1200S Review .
