2020 Ducati Multistrada 1260S Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Sport Riding Mode
Selecting the Sport Riding Mode delivers an adrenaline powered motorcycle, driven by 158 hp with a torque of 129.5 Nm and a sporting setup of suspensions in the S versions.

Touring Riding Mode
In Touring Riding Mode the maximum power remains of 158 HP, but the engine delivery is softer and more progressive.

Urban Riding Mode
The power delivery of the Urban Riding Mode is reduced to 100 hp and in the S versions the suspension setting is ideal for easily overcoming frequent urban obstacles

Enduro Riding Mode
In addition to long journeys on motorways and city traffic, the new Multistrada 1260 also deals brilliantly with dirt roads.

Frame
The new Multistrada 1260 chassis is based on the use of a new frame and a longer swingarm. The steering angle has been increased by 1 degree, from 24° to 25° while the swingarm, also new, is 48 mm longer.

Suspensions
The S version suspensions of the new Multistrada 1260 are of the semi-active type and are controlled by the Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) Evolution system.

Tyres and rims
The new Multistrada 1260, 1260 S and 1260 S D|Air are all equipped with light alloy rims with five Y-shaped spokes, 340 grams lighter than those mounted on the previous model.

New Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak
In addition to the dedicated racing inspired livery, the new Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak is equipped with new forged aluminium wheels, an exceptional 3 kg lighter than those used on the new Multistrada 1260 S.

ABS Cornering
The entire Multistrada 1260 family 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 Skyhook Suspension (DSS) Evolution
The Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evolution system has been tweaked even further, with new forks and new sensors.

Vehicle Hold Control
The ABS that is installed on the new Multistrada 1260 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 9 seconds if it is not used).

New TFT instrument panel
The new Multistrada 1260 is equipped with a high visibility LCD instrument panel with a new information display and simplified menu management.

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

Displacement and torque
Thanks to its new displacement of 1262 cm3, the new Multistrada 1260 engine sets outstanding new riding and performance standards.

Exhaust system
In order to achieve the extraordinary performance of the new Multistrada 1260, 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.

Desmo appeal
