Four customisation packages (Touring, Sport, Urban, Enduro) to enhance the type of use. A wide range of accessories to create made-to-measure kit.

 

You decide how to use it

“”Sport”” mode reveals the sportiest face of the Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak for road riding. Full power (160 Hp), an even more spontaneous and direct throttle response and a more restrained DTC/ABS/DWC intervention bring the full potential of the machine.
In “”Touring”” mode, the control systems are set to ensure optimum performance on dry roads. This mode provides a gentle throttle response on dry roads. “”Touring”” combines full-engine power and torque with high controllability.
“”Urban”” mode provides especially soft dosage and response characteristics to support the rider, max engine power is limited at 100 Hp. The DTC/DWC and ABS respond more readily than in “”Touring”” mode.
The “”Enduro”” mode get the Multistrada 1200 ready to explore new enduro worlds. A soft throttle response with limited engine power (100 Hp), restrained control intervention, optimum brake distribution and ABS control.

THE MULTISTRADA 1200 FAMILY

As soon as it was launched back in 2010, the Multistrada 1200 revolutionised the motorcycling world by offering, for the very first time, nothing less than four bikes in one: from sport bike to long-distance tourer, from everyday runabout to enduro. The new generation of Multistrada bikes, features the latest Ducati Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) engine and a state-of-the-art technological package that sets a standard in its product segment. The Multistrada 1200 is the “multibike” par excellence, with cutting-edge technology making it far more than just the 4-bikes-in-1 by virtue of its Riding Modes.

In 2016 the Multistrada family will welcome the new Multistrada 1200 Enduro – the model designed to propel Ducati into the maxi road enduro segment. Thanks to its spoked wheels – 19’’ at the front and 17’’ at the rear – the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is perfect for long adventures. Featuring semi-active electronic front and rear Sachs suspension and a 30-litre fuel tank, the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is unstoppable on any terrain and has a range that can exceed 450 kilometres (280 miles).

The Multistrada 1200 Enduro will not be the only new addition to the family: the legendary Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race in Colorado, already won four times by Ducati, inspired the sophisticated Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak.

The Multistrada 1200 Enduro and Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak complete a range that already included the Multistrada 1200, 1200 S and 1200 S D|air – unchanged with respect to their 2015 versions. All the Multistrada 1200 models feature the same Ducati Testastretta DVT twin-cylinder engine with Desmodromic Variabile Timing, independently controlling both the intake and the exhaust camshafts.

The Multistrada family establishes a new benchmark also in terms of electronic systems, thanks to the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) platform developed by Bosch, which dynamically measures pitch and roll angles and acceleration along 3 axes, raising performance and safety standards even further. The IMU control unit manages the Cornering ABS and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) systems available on all the family models, and, where available, also the Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL) system of the Full LED headlight and the Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) Evolution semi-active electronic suspension system. All the models are now equipped with an electronic speed control that the rider can set using the buttons integrated in the handlebar switchgear.

A number of Ducati Performance accessories are available for all the Multistrada versions, also included in the Touring, Enduro, Urban and Sport packages, which for the Multistrada 1200 Enduro consist of different accessories.

 

 

2016 Ducati Multistrada 1200S Pikes Peak www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

The Pikes Peak version really brings out the sports character of the Multistrada 1200 S. New from Ducati for 2016, the Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak draws its inspiration from the legendary uphill American race.

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 four times.

Developed on the technical foundations of the Multistrada 1200 S, the Pikes Peak version has a new race-inspired colour scheme, just the first of several new features on this Ducati. The Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak is in dedicated white red and black livery with Ducati red chassis, while the 3-spoke black wheels have a racing-inspired red trim.

In addition to the as-standard silencer and nose fairing, a carbon Ducati Performance silencer by Termignoni (EU type-approved) and a low racing-type carbon screen are also available for the Pikes Peak version. Further carbon fibre components include the front mudguard, front tank cover and lateral front partitions, while the red-stitched seat has been specially designed to bring out this Multistrada’s racing spirit.

Underscoring the sporting character of the Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak are the Öhlins fork and Öhlins TTX36 shock absorber, both mechanically adjustable.

The Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak is powered by the Ducati Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) twin-cylinder engine with cutting-edge technology that makes it the segment benchmark. On the timing front, double variable cam phasing acts independently on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. This optimises engine performance throughout the rev range, whatever the riding conditions. It also simultaneously ensures maximum power at high revs, smooth power delivery, good torque at low RPM and contained fuel consumption, all in full compliance with new Euro 4 standards.

The Multistrada 1200 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) and Cruise Control, the Multistrada 1200 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.

Like other bikes in the family, the Multistrada 1200 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).
