The Multistrada has been one of the best selling Ducatis over the last few years, with 4 bikes 1 it really does offer something for everyone.
So how can Ducati improve the Multistrada 1200, well here's 10 ways we think the Multistrada just got better for 2015.
In first place its got to be the groundbreaking Testastretta DVT engine, the new Multistrada 1200 is the only motorcycle in the world with variable timing on all cylinder valves. This delivers an unprecedented combination of breathtaking torque, class-leading power, super-smoothness and low fuel consumption.
Full LED lights throughout, using LED technology for the parking lights, low beams, high beams, tail light and front indicators. We need to say thank you to Audi for this.
The new full colour TFT 5" display helps you see the Riding Mode selected along with speed, revs and gear, it also displays fuel range, current consumption, average consumption, average speed, air temperature and journey time. (Available on the Multistrada 1200 S).
Ducati corning lights so when you enter a curve, a dedicated LED automatically lights up in the direction of the road, not the roadside! So simple but ingenious!
Ducati Multimedia System so as soon as you sit in the saddle, your smartphone automatically connects to your motorcycle via Bluetooth. Phone calls and the media player can be handled with handlebar buttons, while the caller name or title of the track being played are displayed on the dashboard. You will also be warned of new incoming text messages. Thanks to the Multistrada Link App for Android and IOS, the DMS will also provide access to a full set of functions, using the data acquired from the motorcycle to enhance, integrate and share your Multistrada riding experience.
One for luck - the seat height is now adjustable starting at 805mm making the 2015 Ducati Multistrada 1200 so much more accessible for many more riders.
All this and four riding modes all customisable with a range of kits and luggage. Add in cruise control, hands free key, Cornering ABS, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) which is adjustable on 8 levels and derived from that of the 1199 Superleggera and the list goes on.
With 2015 prices starting at £12,995 for the Multistrada 1200, the 1200S in Red £15,595 & 1200S in White £15,795.
We have a skeleton staff re-booking cancelled jobs and new enquiries received by email during lockdown, processing online orders and handing over bikes (whilst distancing) that were purchased before lockdown. Our workshop is running albeit at a reduced level of manpower (to enable social distancing) and is solidly booked for well over 5 weeks so please expect delays in booking availability. Orders can now be placed online (although we would suggest you wait till 1st June when our Brand New website should be launched) and via email for bikes or product, however not all our suppliers are up and running yet so there could be a short wait. We will keep you informed.
Phones are off at present, but you can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for service enquiries, email@example.com for parts, accessory and clothing enquiries, firstname.lastname@example.org for all bike enquiries and email@example.com for anything else.
Opening the shop
We are due to open the shop on the 1st of June, initially on a "by appointment" basis. For now, these can be booked by email however, we anticipate turning the phones back on from Tuesday 26th May - If needed on a part time basis to allow our reduced team to process enquiries as they come in.
We are taking orders via email for bikes now that can be prepared ready for when we are open. Please email Tony at firstname.lastname@example.org . supplying your telephone number so that we can call you to discuss, along with the details of the bike that you are interested in.
ALL New Website to assist in distance purchasing:
We have during closure been working very hard to complete our new website which is aimed to make remote transactions much easier. In excess of 10,000 product lines will be available for online purchase (Clothing and Accessories) and we have fine-tuned the finance section for new and used bikes that will allow you to play with the figures to get your ideal quote, soft check your credit eligibility without harming your credit rating and make a full application for finance all within the website. Once agreed we are now able to offer remote finance signing reducing your time in the shop at collection point. We hope to have the new website live on June 1st. (This is a last-minute rush. Please let us know if you encounter any issues on the new site - email@example.com).
