Ducati Multistrada Pikes Peak – Where The Road Ends and Beyond
The Ducati Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak in it’s beautiful Corse livery is the Sportiest version of the Multistrada range. Having virtually all of the benefits of the S model it forgoes Skyhook suspension and instead utilises a more focussed Ohlins forks and shock that are fully adjustable (Manually).
The Ducati Multistrada 1260 S has sports bike agility whilst thanks to it’s very upright riding position giving the rider a totally commanding view of the road ahead. The long travel suspension cushioning the bumps to give a smooth and comfy ride. In the case of the Pikes Peak version, the ride is simply more focussed.
The four ride modes on the Mulitistrada 1260 Pikes Peak, Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro each give the rider a totally different attitude in both power variation and varying throttle responses.
As with the 1200 S version, the Ducati Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak comes standard with a lean angle sensor that allows for cornering ABS and for the full LED headlamps to be directional. The dash on this model is full colour TFT.
Backlit switchgear, cruise control, Ducati safety pack that utilises a lean angle sensor for added cornering adjustability, wheelie control and keyless ignition are standard features on all of the Multistrada 1260 models.
Over and above the Multistrada 1260 S, the Pikes Peak is fitted as standard with a Ducati Performance Termignoni homologated exhaust, Carbon fibre windscreen, Plexiglass windscreen, High performance Öhlins suspension, Carbon fibre front mudguard, Carbon fibre side panels and Hands-Free cover.

MULTISTRADA 1260 PIKES PEAK
The Pikes Peak version – which draws its inspiration from the legendary American hill climb race – really brings out the sports character of the Multistrada 1260.
The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, also known as the “The Race to the Clouds”, is held in an area of the Rocky Mountains some 16 km west of Colorado Springs. A distance of 20 kilometres separates the starting line, at an altitude of 2,862 metres, from the finishing line at 4,300 m. It’s an incredibly tough competition: Ducati has already won it three times.
Developed on the technical foundations of the Multistrada 1260 S, the Pikes Peak version benefits from the 1262 cc Euro 4 compliant Ducati Testastretta DVT engine and new chassis dimensions, which include a new front end geometry and a longer swingarm. Along with a race-inspired colour scheme, the Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak comes equipped with new forged aluminium wheels, which are lighter than those of the Multistrada 1260 S. In addition, the bike is fitted with the Öhlins fork and Öhlins TTX36 shock, which can both be adjusted mechanically.
In addition to the silencer and nose fairing, fitted as standard, a carbon fibre Ducati Performance silencer by Termignoni (EU type-approved) and a low racing-type carbon fibre screen are also available for the Pikes Peak version. Further carbon fibre components include the front mudguard, hands free cover and front side panels, while the red-stitched seat has been specially designed to bring out this Multistrada’s racing spirit.
Thanks to the 1262 cc Euro 4 compliant Ducati Testastretta DVT engine, the Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak offers an even more enjoyable riding experience. 85% of the torque is in fact already available below 3,500 rpm with, compared to the previous model, 18% increase at 5,500 rpm. This makes the Multistrada 1260 the motorcycle in its category with the highest torque values at 4,000 rpm, that is the most frequently used rev range.
This level of performance is easy to manage too, thanks to the new Ride by Wire which allows for an even smoother fuel supply, and to the DQS (Ducati Quick Shift) Up & Down, which contributes to an improved riding experience thanks to seamless and accurate gear meshing during both upshifting and downshifting.
The Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak is equipped as standard with the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), developed by Bosch, which dynamically measures pitch and roll angles and acceleration along the 3 axes, raising performance and safety standards even further. Equipped with Cornering ABS, Cornering Lights (DCL) on the full-LED headlight, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) and Cruise Control, the Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak is a concentrate of technology that also features, as standard, a Bluetooth module; the latter, via the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), lets 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, which has been renewed both in terms of graphics and logic.
Like other bikes in the family, the Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak can mount one or more Ducati Performance accessory packages. Also available – in addition to individual items – are the Touring Pack (which includes heated grips, panniers and centre stand), the Urban Pack (with top case, tank bag with tank lock and USB hub to charge electronic devices), the Enduro Pack (consisting of supplementary LED lights and Ducati Performance components by Touratech: engine crash bars, radiator crash bars, sump guard, a broader kickstand base and off-road footpegs).
