Ducati have taken their first step into the adventure market in 2016 with the Multistrada 1200 Enduro, which has true off road capabilities in this new rugged version of the much loved Multistrada.
Whilst it may look like a Multistrada, albeit with a bigger front wheel, there are a number of changes which have gone to make this a real adventure bike. Here’s what you need to know...
The 5.3 gallon tank from the road going models has been bumped up to 7.92 gallons.
The front beak has been lengthened slightly to act as a more proper mud guard, and the front fender has been redesigned and repositioned.
The bars are now higher and the seat now narrower at the front over the pegs to make riding while standing easier. Like many dual sports, the pegs now have a grippier design with removable rubber inserts.
A center stand and luggage mounts are now included standard.
The cast wheels have been swapped for wire units, and the front has been increased to a 19 inch rim.
Suspension travel has been increased from 6.7 inches front and back to 7.9 inches.
The wheelbase grows from 60.2 inches to 61.3, with rake increasing from 24 to 25 degrees and trail growing by a millimeter.
Wet weight grows from 518 pounds to 559 pounds.
Enduro riding mode limits power to 100 horsepower and the suspension is “configured for rough terrain.” ABS is set to level one at the front, but turned off at the rear, and wheelie/rear wheel lift control are shut off.
Pirelli Scorpion Trails are still standard, but Pirelli Scorpion Rallys are an option.
Rear swingarm get’s beefed up, with a double sided unit over the road model’s single-sided swingarm.
Ground clearance raised by just over an inch to 8.07 inches.
Other as-standard features on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro include electronic speed control and the Bluetooth module via the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) to let riders connect the bike to a smartphone and manage key multimedia functions (incoming calls, text messaging, music) via the switchgears and display information on the TFT dashboard.
The new Multistrada Link App for iOS and Android also provides access to a whole series of functions and can process bike data received via Bluetooth allowing the user to improve, extend and share the ride experience.
The Multistrada 1200Enduro comes in three different colours - Ducati Red (£16,690) Phantom Grey and Star White Silk (both priced at £16,890) and as with all Ducatis can be personalised with accessories. In addition, there are also the four Enduro, Touring, Sport and Urban packages available.
