Ducati Multistrada 1200SDucati Multistrada 1200S

The new BMW S1000XR and Ducati Multistrada 1200S are designed for riders who want more performance and better handling than riding in comfort!

The 2015 Ducati Multistrada is a blend of adventure bike styling, generous suspension travel, sports bike performance and multiple engine modes. The difference between this model and the previous ones is that this one feature new bodywork and increased power output of 160bhp thanks to the 1,198cc V-twin engine. The main feature is the introduction of Desmodromic Variable Timing(DVT). Adjustable camshafts, operated via oil pressure, allow valve timing to be optimised for both high- and low-rev running.

While visually similar to the Multistrada and clearly created to compete head-on with it, BMW’s new challenger has a 999cc, 160bhp four-cylinder engine from the naked S1000R but with a new exhaust system. The bike is versatile and well equipped.
