Test Ducati Multistrada 2013: Highly technological Trail

Two years only its presentation, Ducati Multistrada undergoes its first recasting. the menu of this year more technical evolutions hardly let it predict minor modifications.

Dual ignition, with thorough electronic advanced technological package… Who not advance, moves back as one sometimes. Then, that is it in hand?

We arrive on the first photographs. After the first of recognition, I undertake the second on the Touring mode. Then, I for the ultimate return ticket in of the photographers while rocking of the mode to the mode Urban, that, to see”. First, third: I adjust the entry of the with a hair of engine

Light catch of the brakes and Oops! I do not recognize any more the bike! Good, I exaggerate, but features of behavior changed.

The transfer seems to me different, the of the power also, the support on the pedals generates a more braking via the optimized coupling: as a I must reconsider the entry in

Not dangerous, simply disconcerting, the behavior of the motor bike compared to the preceding passage! it is said: the electronic assistances and more will be part of the of the motor bikes, and more or will influence control. And the Ducati Multistrada 1200 is it example.

Multiple internal

Impetus in 2010, Ducati 1200 had focused warp the In its approach of conquest of new customers, was to clear new concepts while its technical identity. The maximum trail, tendency very had then astonished.

And Ducati was not flunked, since Multistrada 1200 were since 2010, on the few 50,000 bikes produced annually in And 80% of the purchasers of Ducati 1200 are new customers. Moreover, two thirds of the on average are carried out with the advanced versions S, and most

For 2013, Ducati 1200 undergoes its first evolution. small aesthetic changes, but an evolution of its engine and its travelling new ABS, system of the 4 distinct of control with cartography and new Skyhook suspensions with assistance, developed in collaboration Sachs… Exit Ohlin’s

Even general-purpose, Ducati Ducati

The line changes ergonomics remains very The saddle, located at 850 mm, always a hair high for the pilots of m, which will have to slightly to pose a foot For the rest, one finds the typical of the maximum kind trail: aside arms, right and unfolded legs.

One notes the site of the crutches: the power obstructs the heel of left and the one is difficult to handle.

While on the saddle passenger – and the term to is not too strong taking into the height of back base – one that the place for the feet of the is counted: not the ideal for the daily and the voyages. For the rest, Ducati 1200 year 2013 very close to its predecessor.

The motor bike seems light (234 kilos all announced facts), the direction a beautiful precision and the driving of the twin-cylinder Testastretta 11° remains in spite of the arrival of dual supposed to soften it.

To evolve it is necessary to take care to these large pistons in a of comfort, located beyond the tr/min. In on this side, the knocks and states to you that one not have to hope to evolve the files beyond the third The driving increase in flexibility by Ducati is not more obvious.

a pity that the mode attached with 100 ch – against 150 ch in mode or Sport – does not the engine rounder in bottom, but has its limits. Morality, Ducati 1200 2013 can endorse the of motor bike of the every but it will be an all the same requiring

A plane, even in 100 horses

To the of the motorway, one does not put any more a about the flexibility of the engine. An makes it possible to go down in third (Touring mode, 150 and to open into large. that pushes!

Beyond tr/min, one finds all the typical of the Testastretta block which on the arms and catapults Ducati 1200 2013 frankly

And to say that it is not so a long time, of generation 1098 developed 160 ch! There, one evolves with the back, with the orders of a which can literally forget in a package of sporting motor

And even if Ducati Multistrada draws rather long, one can go all the same to 90 km/h – even 80 – that is to say 3000 tr/min in 6th and the become instantaneous and canonesques as of 110

One benefits from it then to the new bubble with manual Higher and broader, it is very to handle while rolling. is also in clear progression.

The stability is irreproachable at high-speed, the of very good saddle, the are contained, one will be able to swallow the kilometers of motorway on Ducati Multistrada 1200.

The suspensions with the service of the

On such a flat ground, one really judge qualities of the new suspensions. But the tortuous district embossed and strewn with of the area of Bilbao will be revealing.

Let us be frank: the touch of of Ducati Multistrada 1200 S was remarkable. Presetting of the Ohlin’s following the adopted mode already a comfort and a very level of performance.

Ducati Multistrada 2013 uses a new even more elaborate, from a partnership with the supplier Sachs. On the versions S, the new suspensions lay out of accelerometers and sensors in the sleeves of fork and on the oscillating

This measuring equipment all the movements of suspensions and holds via the multiplexing, a central processing

If the suspensions record a starter of the central processing unit from this one to adapt on the level, for example by reducing the of depression. The internal mechanism of the was completely adapted to these and this system approaches BMW developed on the news BMW S 1000 RR an innovation which goes from the semi-active suspensions one can find in car. But finally, is transparency?

Ducati Multistrada 1200

Enough, one would be tempted to Since Ducati Multistrada 2013 offers a really quality of damping. She is played of the and even if the bleedings of the roadway are at, one remains bluffed by her capacity to the shocks, the suspensions not coming never in thrust.

In the same the phenomena of pumping are almost in the shifts phase and the conks fast, Ducati Multistrada 2013 does not pump it reaches the vertical point. The relaxation is learnedly controlled.

modes of control, but how much

This new electronic system of acts into instantaneous and is coordinated with the various of control. Each mode has its of hydraulics.

But it is also possible to these modes by selecting adjustments: solo use, solo with luggage… The with the ESA from BMW is obvious, that the system Skyhook de is reactive according to the constraints. For the suspensions harden instantaneously the approach high-speeds.

To complicate all the four modes of control have preset adjustments for the of the pack safety delivered of on all Ducati Multistrada 2013. the Enduro mode limits the DTC to notch 2 (against 8 for intrusive) and ABS notch 1 (against 3 for intrusive), to a control any ground punctuated of and wheel locking back.

The whole with an attached with 100 horses. The Touring – extremely of 150 horses – adjusts the DTC on 5 and ABS (but rose on the back) level 3. With final, it is when one rocks of the opposite which one perceives the largest Nothing more normal all since multiple parameters is

But one retains especially that the mode one is crowned compromised and in free version, it meets all the Those which want to try an aft can rock on the Sport mode, but it have been liked the mode Urban softens the more or that the distribution of is marked according to the modes.

In the way, the latency time to the change of mode is a little And of course, the attached French with 100 horses which we are not be able to draw leisure the various levels from

Assessment: Which long-term

Already innovating in 2010, its electronic suspension Ducati Suspension, Ducati Multistrada pushes even further concept with the new suspension Skyhook Suspension. Here a high technological level is which regales the blazon of the to the classical architecture.

Nevertheless, the of sophistication reached by this Ducati Multistrada 1200 has what to leave thoughtful. How the supports will the ravages of How will the sensors placed the mudguard before and on the oscillating arm

How will they endure the moisture?

Ducati ensures to taken care of the insulation of all the without any economy. But the automobile which already passed by knew and knows still risks related to electronics. that to think of all that?

we be preserved? Only the intensive use and the run will give us answers, in thanks to Maxitest.

Most to cold will be able to take refuge towards Multistrada 1200 2013 sold 16,390 € and equipped well with series package ABS/DTC. Ducati 1200 S Touring (with Skyhook suspensions, bags and crutch) will be proposed 19,690 €, which in fact a top-of-the-range motor bike. The Truism news (large top puts, additional headlights…) for its part reach 20,990 € and Pikes Peak 22,290 €.
