Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro revealed
Ducati has just confirmed details regarding the Multistrada 1260 Enduro. The big change is the adoption of the 1262cc Testastretta DVT V-twin, giving a 64cc capacity hike over the previous 1198cc motor. Still using variable valve timing, the bigger engine ups peak power from 152hp to 158hp, but more importantly it increases the torque curve, giving 85% of the 94.4lb-ft maximum as low as 3500 rpm and providing a 17% boost in torque at 5500 rpm compared to the previous Multistrada 1200 Enduro.
The dashboard in front of you is a Human Machine Interface (HMI) with a colour TFT, LCD screen that incorporates the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) that connects your bike to your phone via Bluetooth for calls, texts and music. There’s a USB port under the seat as well.
A host of features including a Ducati Quick Shifter (DQS) up-and-down, a six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), cornering ABS, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Vehicle Hold Control (VHC). On the chassis side there’s even more, with the semi-active Sachs suspension using Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) Evolution, and the bodywork sporting Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL).
All in all an absolutely complete adventure companion from the Italian motorcycle company.
