Ducati has launched today all-new Multistrada 1260 Enduro in India which is a combination of performance and comfort.
The all-new Multistrada 1260 Enduro is equipped with new 1262 cm3 Ducati Testastretta DVT which ensures outstanding pulling power right from the low-to-mid rev range. In fact, 85% of maximum torque is already available below 3,500 rpm with a 17% increase at 5,500 rpm as compared to the torque curve on the engine of the previous model. This makes the Multistrada 1260 Enduro the motorcycle with the highest torque (at 4,000 rpm, the most common rev rate while riding) in its category as stated by the company.
The new Multistrada 1260 Enduro is perfect for long-distance adventure rides as it has spoked wheels – 19’’ at the front and 17’’ at the rear. Featuring electronic semi-active Sachs suspension (with 185 mm of travel both front and rear) and a 30-litre fuel tank, the Multistrada 1260 Enduro is, with a range of 450 km (280 miles) and beyond, an unstoppable globetrotter on any terrain.
The new Multistrada is more comfortable and fun to ride in any condition due to the revised ergonomics – seat, handlebar, and centre of gravity (all lower than on the 1200 version) and a new suspension setup.
The new Multistrada 1260 Enduro boasts of the most advanced electronics package in the segment. The new 6-axis Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) controls Bosch ABS Cornering, Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL) and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC). Riders can set both DWC and DTC to one of 8 different levels, or simply deactivate them. Also, as-standard on the Multistrada 1260 Enduro is Vehicle Hold Control (VHC), which makes uphill starts easier, especially with a full load. Lastly, the Bosch IMU also interacts with the semi-active Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) Evolution control system.
A sophisticated new Human Machine Interface (HMI) is ensured – via a 5’’ TFT colour display, user-friendly switchgear controls and Ducati Multimedia System (DMS). The DMS connects the bike to the rider’s smartphone via Bluetooth, giving access to all key multimedia functions (incoming calls, text messaging, music). It also features cruise control and a hands-free system for easy and comfortable riding.
The Multistrada 1260 Enduro ensures carefree riding even on the longest adventures as it has long maintenance intervals: the oil only needs changing every 15,000 km (9000 miles) while a Desmo Service is required only every 30,000 km (18,000 miles).
The Multistrada 1260 Enduro comes in two colours: Ducati Red & Sand and is priced at INR 19,99,000 and INR 20,23,000 (Ex-Showroom). Bookings are currently open across all Ducati dealerships in Delhi – NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad.
