Ducati on Friday pulled the covers off the much anticipated Multistrada 1260 Enduro. The new ADV variant is Ducati’s second Enduro after the 2016 Multistrada 1200 Enduro.
The new bike has set a new benchmark for all its rivals in the market. It oozes with the Italian charm that stands iconic to Ducati’s design. The new Multistrada is powered by the 1262cc Testastretta DVT engine with variable cam timing which was introduced in the Multistrada 1260 in 2017. Ducati claims that the extra 63cc compared to the previous endure gives the bike significant pulling power even at low rev range. The bigger bore now lets the bike put out a 158bhp of power.
Along with a new ride-by throttle wire, it also features different riding modes to ensure a friendly performance in different types of terrains. The Enduro gets new 17-inch spoked wheels at the rear and 19-inch ones at the front, compared to the mag ones on the standard Multistrada, for better handling and durability during adventure rides.
The Enduro is seated lower than the Multistrada 1200 along with a lower handlebar and centre of gravity. Ducati has paid close attention to electronic abilities of the bike which now comes with a Human Machine Interface (HMI) that helps the rider connect better with the mechanics of the bike. Like others in the segment, the Enduro also sports a 5-inch TFT colour display and switchgear controls and an inbuilt Ducati Multimedia System (DMS).
Apart from the DMT, the new Enduro is also compatible with the new Ducati Link App that lets the owners personalise each parameter of the different riding modes via their smartphones. Apart from that, the Link App also provides comprehensive maintenance deadline info, a user manual and a Ducati Store Locator.
Standard electronic package on the bike includes Bosch Cornering ABS, Cornering Lights, Wheelie Control, Traction Control and Vehicle Hold Control.
