Displacement and Torque
Thanks to its new displacement of 1262 cm3, the new Multistrada 1260 engine sets outstanding new riding and performance standards.
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.
The Ducati Testastretta DVT also uses the engine valve timing system that has made Ducati famous throughout the world.
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.
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.
