2008 Ducati Multistrada 1100S
The Multistrada 1100 S earns its ‘S’ status by adding world-class suspension and componentry to an already loaded high performance motorcycle.
The powerful 1100 engine is matched in the ‘S’ version with the renowned Ã–hlins suspension front and rear. Fully adjustable 43 mm Ã–hlins forks with low friction TiN fork sliders are complemented by a fully adjustable Ã–hlins rear shock for Superbike-class road holding.
The impressive list of ‘S’ components includes light and aggressive tapered alloy handlebars plus carbon fibre cam belt covers and front fender.
The Multistrada 1100 S – conquer any road.
September 11th 2008 Update: Ducati has extended its colour range by adding the stylish pearl white option to two more of its top models, the Hypermotard and Multistrada.
New pearl white livery for Ducati Hypermotard and Multistrada Bologna, 10 September – Ducati has extended its colour range by adding the stylish pearl white option to two more of its top models, the Hypermotard and Multistrada.
Following a dazzling success for the pearl white finish introduced on the Ducati 848 and Monster 696, Ducati will now offer the exciting Hypermotard 1100 and the versatile Multistrada 1100 S in this smart and exclusive livery.
For the Hypermotard 1100, pearl white creates an eye-catching and competition style contrast against its red Trellis frame and new carbon-grey finish applied to the engine outer casings.
On the ‘S’ version of the Multistrada 1100, the pearl white shade achieves a more sophisticated contrast against its ‘racing grey’ Trellis frame, the new darker carbon-grey finish of the engine outer casings and the precious carbon fibre that characterise the sporting components of this model.
Both new versions will become available during September and officially shown to the public at the International Motorcycle Show in Cologne (INTERMOT – hall 8) from 7th October.
