Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro – Beyond Boundaries

Following the punch after the tremendous success of the Multistrada 1260 Ducati set out to provide an exceptional off road and globetrotting motorcycle for those Ducatisti who crave unparalleled performance, latest technology and gorgeous Ducati styling that is unmistakably Italian.

As per the new Multistrada 1260, the Enduro variant receives brand new 1262cc Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) L-twin engine. The power plant produces 158bhp, and 128nm of torque, both peak below 10000rpm. In fact 85% of the torque is available for the rider from as little as 3500rpm. Giving a smooth and strong performance from the bottom of the rev range all the way to the top and with taller gearing, Multistrada 1260 Enduro can handle rough terrain easier, even when the bike is fully loaded with panniers and and carrying a passenger.

A cutting edge engine, needs a cutting edge electronics package to complete the uncompromising character of the machine. So as a part of the Ducati Multistrada range topping motorcycle, (take a deep breath) the Multistrada 1260 Enduro comes with 6 axis IMU made by Bosh, enabling multi level cornering ABS, wheelie control, vehicle hold control, fully adjustable riding and power modes and Ducati Traction Control system, Ducati up and down quickshifter, sublime semi-active Skyhook suspension, hands free engine start up, keyless ignition, cornering LED lights, self cancelling indicators and the list goes on and on.

Not including the astounding list of features and electronic equipment, Ducati took extra care and attention to the reliability and outright rider comfort. After all with splendid fuel economy and 30l tank, Multistrada 1260 Enduro is designed for touring the globe. As such, with the semi-active Skyhook Suspension, new model can be 15mm shorter, without sacrificing the offroad performance. The seat is narrower to allow greater rider confidence and comfort, and the handlebars with illuminated controls are 30mm lower, making the seating position more natural and comfortable for the rider and the passenger.

This really is a “do it all, go everywhere” kind of machine, customised with Urban, Sport and Enduro accessory kits will enable the rider to make the Multistrada 1260 Enduro truly theirs. Suiting their bike perfectly to their needs. And with robust and solid engineering this bike will perform as well as it looks.

New Testastretta DVT 1262

The latest evolution of the Ducati Testastretta engine, the Testastretta DVT 1262, lets you to enjoy maximum performances riding the new Multistrada 1260 Enduro. The increase in displacement and the use of the DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) system allow for torque delivery that is both full and fluid at low revs, guaranteeing sporty performance at medium-high speeds.

Ready to cross every continent

The chassis dimensions of the new Multistrada 1260 Enduro were redefined to achieve the best compromise in terms of off-road riding and handling, with a passenger or luggage. The fully adjustable suspensions managed with the Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evo (DSS) system allows unprecedented versatility.

Advanced electronics

The new Multistrada 1260 Enduro is equipped with an innovative electronic instrumentation that makes riding safe and comfortable. The redesigned interface is even more intuitive: Cruise Control, Hands-Free startup and backlit handlebar switches make the riding experience much more enjoyable and adapt perfectly to the rider’s needs.

Enduro inspiration, Ducati technology

The new Multistrada 1260 Enduro is equipped with the most advanced Ducati technology. Bosch Cornering ABS controls braking by maximising active safety even when the motorcycle is leaning into curves. The Ducati Traction Control modulates the slide of the rear wheel. But that’s not all: Ride By Wire, Ducati Wheelie Control, semi-active Ducati Skyhook Suspensions (DSS) Evolution.

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.

Testastretta DVT 1262

Thanks to its new displacement of 1262 cm³, the new Multistrada 1260 Enduro engine sets outstanding new riding and performance standards. In developing this engine, used also on the new Multistrada 1260, Ducati engineers focused on guaranteeing the maximum and best possible torque delivery at low and mid range engine speeds.

Ducati QuickShift (DQS)

The Multistrada 1260 Enduro comes standard with Ducati Quick Shift Up & Down (DQS), the system that lets you shift gear without using the clutch, which translates into superior riding pleasure, greater ease handling off-road trails and a more relaxing ride in the city.

Desmodromic Variable Timing (DVT)

Developed and fine-tuned by Ducati engineers, the DVT system optimises performance and fluidity of delivery at all end speed levels.

Exhaust system

In order to achieve the performance of the Multistrada 1260 Enduro, the exhaust and intake systems were also redesigned. The exhaust has a new pipe design, a new internal layout of the pre-damper and a new silencer, while the air intake inlet area has also been redesigned.

Chassis and ergonomics

The chassis of the Multistrada 1260 Enduro has been redesigned, reducing the suspension travel compared to the 1200 version: the travel of both wheels is 185 mm. This change led to a lowering of the seat height to 860 mm from the ground, making the bike easier to handle for all riders.

Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evo (DSS)

The Multistrada 1260 Enduro suspension is semi-active, controlled by the Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evolution (DSS) system and, thanks to complete adjustability using the new intuitive HMI interface, it can be set to 400 different configurations. No other bike in the class allows such precision.


The most important chassis dimensions like vehicle wheelbase, swinging arm length and steering geometry (trail and offset) were defined by seeking the best compromise between off-road riding, manoeuvrability and stability at high speeds.

Tyres and rims

The Multistrada 1260 Enduro comes standard with Pirelli Scorpion™ Trail II tyres in sizes 120/70 R19 on the front and 170/60 R17 on the rear.

Bosch ABS Cornering

The Multistrada 1260 Enduro is equipped with the Brembo braking system fitted with the ABS 9.1ME Cornering device, an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP)

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)

Ducati Traction Control is a system derived from racing that acts as a “filter” between the right hand of the rider and the rear tyre.

Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC)

Adjustable on eight levels, the system analyses the position of the bike (wheelie) and consequently manages torque and power to guarantee maximum acceleration in safety without misalignments. Like the DTC, it has eight levels and has been incorporated in the Riding Modes.

Vehicle Hold Control (VHC)

The ABS that is installed on the Multistrada 1260 Enduro is equipped with the Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) system. When activated, the system keeps the vehicle still by activating the rear brake (and automatically deactivates after a few seconds).

Human Machine Interface (HMI)

The Multistrada 1260 Enduro is equipped with a high-resolution colour TFT instrument panel that is easy to read even in sunlight. Besides being nice to look at, the new, completely redesigned HMI (Human Machine Interface) makes menu navigation and changing settings extremely easy and intuitive.

Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL)

The full-LED headlight guarantees great efficiency and excellent stability (unaffected by voltage variations) compared to a traditional lamp-type headlight.

Ducati Link App

The Multistrada 1260 Enduro is compatible with the new Ducati Link app, thanks to which it is possible to simply and intuitively set the travel mode (combination of Load and Riding Mode) and customise the parameters of each Riding Mode (ABS, Ducati Traction Control, etc.) using your smartphone.

Hands Free

The Multistrada 1260 Enduro starts without a key thanks to a Hands Free system that raises safety standards. Just get walk towards your bike with the electronic key in your pocket. When you are about two metres away the bike will recognise the key code and allow activation.
