Thanks to the 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT engine and the 4 Riding Modes, the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour is suitable both for daily use and for travelling, as it can also be a faithful companion for long trips when two-ups and with luggage. This is possible because 85% of the torque delivered by the Testastretta DVT twin-cylinder engine is already available at 3,500 rpm. The maximum power of 158 hp is available at 9,500 rpm and maximum torque of 13.2 kgm at 7,500 rpm are always easy to manage thanks to the Ride by Wire system ensuring smooth throttle control and to the Riding Modes that turn the Multistrada into four different bikes, depending on the rider’s requirements: more sporty, more tourer for long trips, more for commuting or for enduro.
Chassis dimensions of the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour, together with the 17″ alloy wheels, ensure an efficient and responsive ride in bends and also utmost stability, even when fully loaded and at high speed, with panniers and passenger. The ergonomics of the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour was designed to ensure a natural, comfortable and relaxing riding position in case of long trips, both for the rider and for the passenger, and at the same time a riding stance that could be dynamic, active and performing when bends spark your desire for fun.
The Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour, in terms of electronic equipment, is a benchmark. The IMU inertial platform (Inertial Measurement Unit) provides the ECU precious information concerning bike position and speed in space thereby allowing operation of the ABS Cornering, of the Cornering Lights (DCL) – present in the full LED headlight fitted to the bike – and of the Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC). Both DWC and DTC can be customised by the rider through 8 levels or can be disabled. Standard equipment for the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour also includes the Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) and the semi-active suspension control Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evo (DSS).
The entire Multistrada 1260 family is equipped with the Brembo braking system fitted with the Bosch ABS 9.1ME Cornering device, an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) ABS Cornering exploits Bosch’s IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform to maximise balancing of the braking power delivered even in critical situations and with the motorcycle in a leaning position. By interacting with the Riding Mode, the system is able to provide the ideal solution for every situation and riding condition. Thanks to an ABS control processor, Multistrada boasts a front and rear Electronic Combined Braking System, optimised for Urban and Touring Riding Modes, and takes advantage of reduced control in Sport mode, a context where preference is given to non-fully automated control. The combined braking system increases braking stability by using four pressure gauges, to best distribute the braking power between the front and rear wheels.
Worry-free rides The constant investment in quality guaranteed by the design, advanced materials and engineering has made it possible to modify the maintenance programme in a highly competitive manner, extending regular maintenance intervals to 15,000 km or one year and the valve clearance check at 30,000 km, with a great benefit for customers.
