The maximum on any road

New engine. Greater usability and control. The new Multistrada 1260 takes you into a brand new “comfort zone”, where the pleasure of driving becomes a sense of well-being, travelling is turned into an experience and performance becomes pure emotion.

Elegant and unique

The sleek surfaces, flowing design and volume difference between the front and rear remain the highly characteristic elements that in the new Multistrada 1260 reach completely new quality and finishing standards. Another highly characteristic element of the new Multistrada 1260 S are the Y-shaped 5 spoke wheels.

New Testastretta DVT 1262

Thanks to the new Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 cm3 Euro 4 engine, the new Multistrada 1260 is now even more pleasurable for everyday use thanks to the increased torque at low and mid-range engine speeds. The new Multistrada 1260 is the motorcycle with the highest torque value in its category standing at 4,000 rpm, which is the average rotation rate most commonly used when driving.

Even more comfort for your travels

New chassis measurements, with a longer swing arm and a new shape at the front end, make tackling curves much more effective, whilst ensuring maximum stability even at full load with side panniers and pillion rider onboard.

Technological reference point

The new Multistrada 1260 also stands as a technological point of reference: maximum safety with the inertial platform (IMU) that manages both the operation of the Cornering ABS and the Cornering Light. And more: Ducati Traction Control, Ducati Wheelie Control, the highly revered Skyhook suspensions and the Vehicle Hold Control that ensures easy and safe uphill starts.

The road, a free mind

The Multistrada 1260 has long maintenance intervals: oil changes are scheduled for every 15,000 km, while the "Desmo Service" valve clearance control is required every 30,000 km, distances that allow you to enjoy all your travels, even the longest rides, without any worries.

Sport Riding Mode

Selecting the Sport Riding Mode delivers an adrenaline powered motorcycle, driven by 158 hp with a torque of 129.5 Nm and a sporting setup of suspensions in the S versions.

Touring Riding Mode

In Touring Riding Mode the maximum power remains of 158 HP, but the engine delivery is softer and more progressive.

Urban Riding Mode

The power delivery of the Urban Riding Mode is reduced to 100 hp and in the S versions the suspension setting is ideal for easily overcoming frequent urban obstacles

Enduro Riding Mode

In addition to long journeys on motorways and city traffic, the new Multistrada 1260 also deals brilliantly with dirt roads.

Frame

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.

Suspensions

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.

ABS Cornering

The entire Multistrada 1260 family is equipped with the Brembo braking system fitted with the ABS 9.1ME Cornering device, an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP).

Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) Evolution

The Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evolution system has been tweaked even further, with new forks and new sensors.

Vehicle Hold Control

The ABS that is installed on the new Multistrada 1260 is equipped with the Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) system. When activated, the system keeps the vehicle still by activating the rear brake (and automatically deactivates after 9 seconds if it is not used).

New TFT instrument panel

The new Multistrada 1260 is equipped with a high visibility LCD instrument panel with a new information display and simplified menu management.

DVT system

Developed and fine-tuned by Ducati engineers, the DVT system optimises performance and fluidity of delivery at all end speed levels.

Displacement and torque

Thanks to its new displacement of 1262 cm3, the new Multistrada 1260 engine sets outstanding new riding and performance standards.

Exhaust system

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.

Desmo appeal

The Ducati Testastretta DVT also uses the engine valve timing system that has made Ducati famous throughout the world.
