Ducati Unveils the Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition

Ducati has unveiled the Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition, in celebration of Greg Tracy’s victory in the 2010 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The Special Edition features a Ducati Corse paint job, a race-derived carbon fiber low windscreen and front mudguard, custom seat and numbered crank case.

Is it Important?

If you’re a collector with a taste for all things Ducati, then the Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition is relatively swoon worthy. For a $500CDN/$2000USD premium over the Sport Model’s $22,495CDN / $19,995US MSRP, you are getting some extra carbon fiber flourishes, collectable numbering and a Corse paint job. All of which seems a much better deal for the Canadian market per Ducati’s pricing.

The problem is the Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition (PPSE) could have truly embraced and celebrated Ducati’s “exceptional all-terrain versatility”, by complementing the Corse paint job with some protective accessories. Working with a company like AltRider.com. the PPSE could have not only been collectable, but truly functional for those of us who dream of mad hill climb racing skills yet are only equipped with mortal prowess on the dirt.

The PPSE is great to look at, but if you try to ride a Colorado Hill Climb out of the box you’ll likely be crying over scratches in that gorgeous paint job. You also need to consider that for the price, you’re in the neighborhood of the Multistrada 1200 S Touring, which offers a lot more in the way of practicality by including two Italian man-purses… Er, hard luggage.

Still, it will have extra poser points as it sits polished and spotless in front of the local ‘Bucks.

The Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition’s Ducati Corse paint scheme features red trellis frame, red pin-striping on the wheels and the passenger foot-peg hangers, plus an engine guard anodized in black finish. In addition to the original equipment silencer and windscreen, the Pikes Peak Special Edition comes with a race-derived carbon fiber low windscreen, a Ducati Performance carbon fiber front mudguard and custom made seats with red stitching to complete a fabulous package well worthy of a race-winning replica.

For the collector, each Pikes Peak Special Edition Multistrada will come with a numbered badge on the engine crankcase cover, noting the individuality of the motorcycle.

Pikes Peak is a multi-surface race, climbing a mountain track through 4,300 feet of altitude change and transitions from pavement to dirt. Ducati says winning the race underlines the exceptional all-terrain versatility of the Ducati Multistrada. and demonstrates how Multistrada’s four different riding modes adapt the motorcycle to any environment on the fly. The Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro riding modes are selected by the simple click of a button; instantly transforming the Multistrada’s suspension, power output and traction control settings electronically — a feature that racer Greg Tracy will use again in 2011.

In conjunction with the launch of Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition, Ducati is excited to announce its entry in the 2011 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, featuring last year’s winning line up of Greg Tracy and Alexander Smith. Preparations have already begun for the defense of the title, and Ducati will be fighting for top time up the mountain come June.

Complementing the race, Ducati will be organizing a Multistrada owner tour to the race; dubbed “All Roads Lead To Pikes Peak.” The event will be the first official Multistrada owner’s gathering, and details will be on the www.ducatiusa.com website shortly.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, or “Race to the Clouds”, is situated in a range of the Rocky Mountains, 10 miles west of Colorado Springs and races 12.42 miles from a start line altitude of 9,390 feet to a finish line at 14,110 feet. First held in 1916, the event is now on the international calendar of the FIA in addition to holding seven motorcycle categories from 250-1200cc.

The early arrival model year 2012 Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition will be available from June 2011 onwards, with an MSRP of $22,995 CDN / $21,995 US.
