If Ferrari said it would never build an SUV, the Ferrari of motorbikes, Ducati, is doing just that with this new

out that no compromise on Ducati’s style

and technology has been made. The new

motorcycle has been built specifically to

handle the stress of off-road riding, while

continuing to offer the ride quality and

fun you would expect from a Ducati.

Its ability to cruise over a multitude of

surfaces makes the Ducati Multistrada

1200 Enduro perfect for long-distance

adventures due to its electronic semiactive

Sachs suspension both front and

rear, and a high-capacity 30-liter fuel

tank. This last

feature enables the Multistrada 1200

Enduro to travel up to 280 miles (450

kilometers) on a full tank of gas, which

will prove very useful in remote locations

where fuel is harder to come by.

And the Multistrada 1200 Enduro will

be perfectly capable of reaching those

locations. It comes with a spoked 19” front

wheel and 17” rear wheel, a hard-wearing

Multistrada 1200 frame coupled with a

twin-sided swingarm. The new Ducati

maxi-enduro is

powered by the 160 hp tried-and-tested

Ducati Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic

Variable Timing) engine and is fitted with

a new exhaust system. The “Multistrada”

part of the name is reflected in the Riding

Mode technology that allows the rider to

choose from Enduro, Touring, Sport and

Urban modes, virtually transforming the

1200 Enduro into a 4-in-1 motorcycle.
