Ever since 2008, Ducati has had a total of six victories at the prestigious Pikes Peak hill climb event with the Hypermotard 1100 S, Streetfighter 848, and Multistrada 1200 S motorcycles. It was in honour of this achievement that Ducati had launched the Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak edition and now finally this edition comes to India.
The Ducati Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak edition comes equipped with fully adjustable Öhlins forks and a TTX36 rear shock. A special red and white livery with a Ducati red chassis makes the bike stand out from the crowd.
The Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak edition is powered by the Ducati Testastretta DVT L-Twin engine that produces 158 hp of power at 9500 rpm and 136 Nm of torque at 7500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and comes with multiple riding modes. A sophisticated electronics package consisting of Ducati Wheelie Control, Ducati Traction Control and Cruise Control helps harness the power. For better riding cornering ABS and cornering lights on the all LED headlight are also present. The Bluetooth module together with the Ducati Multimedia System lets riders connect the Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak edition to a smartphone and manage key multimedia functions via the switchgear and displays information on the colour TFT dashboard.
Ravi Avalur, Managing Director, Ducati India said: “The Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak is a motorcycle in which touring capability meets performance. With its race inspired looks and cutting edge technology, the Pikes Peak is in a league of its own and we’re sure enthusiasts will appreciate this version of the Multistrada.”
