THRILLING ON EVERY ROAD
The Multistrada 1100 widens the horizons of all those who are ‘sport motorcyclists’ at heart but still want a bike they can use seven days a week. Riding a Multistrada makes every road a thrill. The punchy 1100 Desmo L-Twin engine with smoother, more tractable power, coupled with a refined chassis, delivers confident handling and optimal comfort, even over long distances.
The unmistakable Ducati Trellis frame combines with a fully-adjustable suspension that allows the rider to adapt the bike to any road condition and every riding style. Rider comfort has been further improved with new vibration-isolated handlebars.
Superb road holding, a powerful 1100 engine and all day comfort give the versatile Multistrada a unique personality and character in true Ducati style.
