2009 Ducati Multistrada 1100

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 for any road condition and every riding style.

Superb road holding, a powerful 1100 engine and all day comfort gives the versatile Multistrada a unique personality and true Ducati character.

The Multistrada family

The Multistrada family of sport bikes excel on every road you challenge with amazing sports performance, outstanding comfort and everyday-use versatility. Ideal for a day in the mountains, the daily commute or a weekend tour, the Multistrada offers sport bike aggression on twisty roads, yet is smooth and relaxed when scenery beckons.

Developed on the winding mountain roads and city streets of Italy, the Multistrada is a real-world motorcycle for real-world riders, a dream come true, a high performance sports bike that doesn’t compromise comfort, versatility or practicality.

The Multistrada breaks down all barriers. Its unique versatility is a matter of design. On mountain roads its impressive cornering performance comes by way of Superbike-spec suspension, world-class brakes and its renowned Ducati Trellis frame. For extended journeys, the longer travel suspension smoothes the way, vibration isolated handlebars reduce fatigue and the relaxed riding position optimises comfort for both rider and passenger. In town the agile chassis, wide bars and broad power of the 1100 engine make crossing busy city traffic an adventure to look forward to.

It is this extreme versatility and all-round performance that prompted magazines to nominate the Multistrada as “Bike of the year” in the street segment.


For the 2009 the Multistrada is available in two versions: the impressive Multistrada 1100 finished in red and, for those who demand ‘S’ version sport performance, the Multistrada 1100 S in red, black or in the new pearl white colour.

 

MULTISTRADA 1100


Chassis
The renowned Multistrada chassis guarantees exceptional stability at speed, as well as fantastic agility through fast bends. It enabling expert riders to find it easy to achieve blistering performance with the 1100.

The Trellis frame is made from high quality steel (ALS 450) for maximum rigidity and precise directional control.

The fully adjustable suspension of the Multistrada 1100 features upside-down 43mm Showa forks adjustable in compression and rebound damping as well as spring preload. The Sachs rear monoshock is equipped with a practical hydraulic remote control to adjust spring preload, which operates through Ducati’s rising rate linkages.

The Multistrada is equipped with an exceptional braking system; two 320mm semi-floating discs at the front wheel with two 4-piston Brembo calipers, while rear stopping power is provided by an single 245mm disc with a Brembo 2-piston caliper.


Engine
The Multistrada is equipped with the renowned Desmodue air-cooled twin-cylinder engine. For this model the Ducati 1100 Dual Spark has a displacement of 1078cc which offers exceptional torque and excellent reliability.

This engine offers a power output of 95hp at 7750rpm and 10,5kgm (76lb-ft) of torque at 4750rpm. Contributing to the bike’s rideability and powerful mid-range, this modern air-cooled engine highlights the sporting character of the Multistrada 1100.
The engine has been designed to comply to Euro 3 standards while boosting performance.

Compact and powerful the1100 Dual Spark Desmo engine is the result of decades of experience and a whole series of innovations that extend from the combustion chambers to the crankshaft.

The Dual Spark ignition on the Multistrada 1100 optimizes combustion temperatures, increases maximum power and torque throughout rpm range, enhances reliability and reduces fuel consumption. These features combine to make the Multistrada Euro 3 compliant.

The 1100 Dual Spark engine also features a ‘wet’ clutch which provides a lighter lever action, is quieter than a dry clutch, and characterised by having exceptional wear-resistance.
Thanks to an excellent compromise between performance, reliability, noise and lever effort, this clutch is ideal for sport riding while ensuring a more progressive action and feel.

PRESS/MEDIA RELEASE
November 4th, 2009

DUCATI PRESENTS ITS NEW MODEL RANGE 2009

THE NEW DUCATI MODELS ARE MAKING THEIR DEBUT BEFORE THE HUGE CROWDS OF EICMA. THE GLOBAL PREVIEW OF THE NEW DUCATI STREETFIGHTER WAS A GREAT SUCCESS WHILE THE SUPERBIKE FAMILY WELCOMES THE NEW 1198 AND THE LIMITED EDITION 1098 R ‘BAYLISS’. THE 1100 MONSTER COMPLETES THE NEW ADDITIONS FOR 2009.

Rho (Milan), 3 November 2008 – A real, live runway, as those used during the Milan fashion week, set the scene for the entrance of the 2009 new additions in the Bologna manufacturer’s range. These dream bikes are the result of Italian genius and creativity and will capture the attention of everyone visiting EICMA 2008, Milan’s international motorcycle show being held at the city’s international exhibition centre in Rho, from 4 to 9 November. From here they will go on to setting new standards as they arrive on the international market.

A press conference brimming with information, technical details and new unveilings was held prior to the official opening of the show. Gabriele Del Torchio, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding, met members of the international press and presented the amazing sporting and sales achievements that the Bologna company has recently recorded, as evidence of the Italian manufacturer’s strength and performance.

Before the 2009 models were let loose, the press was also shown the new Ducati logo, an evolution of the historic brand name, which now includes a new red shield featuring a new graphic symbol, alongside the classic Ducati script. This replaces the previous, celebrated, stylised letter ‘D’ and makes this motorcycling logo even more eye-catching and unique in its representation of passion, competition and performance.

“Confidence and passion are the two key words for the coming year. – said Mr Del Torchio as he opened the conference – These words are directly inspired by the results we have achieved in 2008, during which we have continued to grow, despite the shrinking markets, to the extent that our sales have increased by 25% in just two years. Our confidence and passion come from having identified a series of strategic activities that we at Ducati are working on both internally and externally, in order to offer our customers all around the world increasingly innovative, reliable and distinctive products, which are guaranteed to make their dreams come true. We are convinced that by working in this direction, as we have underlined in our company mission, we can generate a positive future for our shareholders and our customers, as ambassadors of Italian products adding prestige to our worldwide standing.

The amazing new products that we have brought to EICMA 2008 represent the fruit of our technological research and development, which Ducati expresses through its updated range, confirming how much this company is focused on the product as well as supporting and sustaining our sales targets for the next few years.”

Claudio Domenicali, General Product Manager of Ducati Motor Holding, introduced the major and eagerly awaited new Ducati products for 2009. The motorcycles made their entrance on the runway ridden by Ducati factory racers and testers: Giulio Malagoli (Monster 1100), Niccolò Canepa (1198), Vittoriano Guareschi (Streetfighter) and Claudio Domenicali (1098 R Bayliss). It was a truly impressive, spectacular presentation that made the occasion even more thrilling.

The real star of the event was the new Ducati Streetfighter, which is already among the top contenders for the title “best bike of the show”.

Stripped to the bare essentials, its combination of state-of-the-art race technology, exposed styling and cultured design takes Ducati’s big naked concept to the very top of the fighter food chain.

With 155hp of awesome Ducati L-Twin muscle harnessed in a stripped-down, super-light bike that packs more punch for its weight than any other contender, this fighter is gloves-off and ready for action.

Whether laying down the miles on open roads or ripping up the urban asphalt, no other bike in town will roll with the same stylish fire-power.

This ultimate naked will be ripping-up the asphalt from Spring 2009.

Ducati Streetfighter is also available in a “S” version equipped with Öhlins suspension, lightweight forged Marchesini wheels, carbon fibre parts and a street-going Ducati Traction Control.

For 2009, the Ducati Superbike family has two major new additions, both made absolutely special by their engine size as well as equipment and components – these are two bikes that are sure to carry on and increase the success achieved with the celebrated 1098.

The new DUCATI 1198, while maintaining the same look as the previous 1098, is in fact a totally new bike. The 1198, which produces a powerful 170hp (125kW) from its new Testastretta Evoluzione engine, and has a dry weight of just 171kg (377lb), incorporates all of the World Superbike technology derived directly from the 2008 World Championship winning race bike of Troy Bayliss.
The Ducati Data Analysis, supplied as standard equipment on the 1198 S model, enables the retrieval and analysis of data collected from a track session or road trip. The innovative road-going Ducati Traction Control (DTC) system monitors front and rear wheel speeds to detect rear wheel-spin under acceleration and electronically reduces engine power to restore traction. DTC, which offers a choice of eight settings, provides a considerable increase in safety during mid-corner acceleration.

EICMA is also the first major opportunity to celebrate the great sporting results Ducati has achieved in 2008. Second place in the MotoGP series and Superbike World Championship titles, both for riders’ and manufacturers’, thanks to the victory of Troy Bayliss – in the debut year of the 1098 F08.
After his resounding victory, Troy announced his retirement from motorcycle racing and Ducati decided to celebrate his career by producing the limited edition ‘1098 R Bayliss’, a worthy conclusion to a career during which he won three World Championship titles aboard three different generations of Ducati Superbikes.

The newly crowned World Superbike Champion, Troy Bayliss will be at the Ducati stand the next Thursday 6th November to meet all his fans and see the new 1098 R Bayliss Limited Edition version.

Ducati add the new Monster 1100 and 1100 S to the 2009 range, both icons of Italian excellence. Dedicated to those who want to make the ultimate expression, this jewel of style and performance is powered by the charismatic two-valve 1100cc Desmodromic twin-cylinder engine, famous the world over for its legendary torque and acceleration.

The 2009 range is completed by the new pearl white colour for the Hypermotard 1100 and Multistrada 1100 S and the new black with white stripe livery version of the GT 1000, available also in a special Touring version.

In addition, Ducati presents many new accessories, special components and a new collection of Ducati clothing.
