Features

Chassis

  • BREMBO BRAKES AND CORNERING ABS: The Multistrada 1200 Enduro features Brembo brakes with the Bosch 9.1ME ABS ECU, an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP). Cornering ABS makes use of the Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform to optimise front and rear braking power even in critical situations with the bike at considerable lean angles. The front braking system on the new Multistrada 1200 features monobloc radially-mounted Brembo 4-piston callipers with 32 mm diameter pistons and 2 pads, a radial master cylinder with adjustable lever, and dual 320 mm discs. At the rear, there is a single 265 mm diameter disc gripped by a floating calliper, again from Brembo. These components ensure top braking performance, a standard Ducati feature.
  • TRELLIS FRAME: The new Multistrada 1200 Enduro mounts components that, in terms of technological content and performance, are nothing less than state-of-the-art. Key chassis parameters such as vehicle wheelbase, swingarm length and steering geometry (trail and offset) have been defined by seeking out the best compromise between off-road riding, handling and high-speed stability. The Multistrada 1200 Enduro has a solid frontal Trellis frame with large-diameter, low-thickness tubing while the two lateral sub-frames are closed off by a rear load-bearing, techno-polymer, fibreglass element to maximise torsional rigidity. The 205 mm ground clearance is an essential advantage when heading off-road.
  • DOUBLE-SIDED SWINGING ARM: The double-sided swingarm is made of shell-cast aluminium, its combination of brushed and rough-finished parts offers eye-catching appeal. Specially designed for off-road use, this tough swingarm combines limited weight with an excellent ability to absorb the punishment meted out by off-road riding.
  • OVERVIEW: The Multistrada 1200 Enduro enhances its globetrotter characteristics with the Pro version. The adventurous soul of the Multistrada reaches new heights thanks to this new version dedicated to those that always take the road less traveled. The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro is offered in a Sand color scheme that includes protective stickers with the ""Enduro"" logo on the side of the fuel tank. The two-tone Sand color seat is also unique to the Enduro Pro, as are the black subframe, clutch and alternator covers. The off-road soul of the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is further highlighted by the standard fitment of Pirelli SCORPIONTM Rally tires, 120/70 R19 at the front and 170/60 R17 at the rear. These tires allow serious off-road riding while guaranteeing excellent performance on asphalt. The Multistrada Enduro Pro also features Ducati Performance by Touratech side protection crash bars complete with LED lights, a low windscreen that is ideal for riding while standing on the pegs and a street-legal Ducati Performance by Termignoni slip-on silencer.
  • ERGONOMICS: The riding position of the Multistrada 1200 Enduro has been designed to ensure optimum off-road handling. The handlebars are higher and the seat is designed to maximise contact between rider and bike. The footpegs are made of steel and have removable rubber covers. The lever design also takes its cue from the off-road world: the rear brake lever can easily be height-adjusted while the gear lever has a special coupling to prevent breakage in the event of a fall or contact with an obstacle.
  • DUCATI SKYHOOK SUSPENSION (DSS) EVO: The DSS (Ducati Skyhook Suspension) Evolution system on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is based on a 48 mm fork and a Sachs rear shock. These ensure 200 mm of wheel travel both front and back. Electronic suspension allows for continuous rebound and compression damping adjustment, with semi-active control giving optimal vehicle balance. In practice, the system keeps the attitude of the bike steady whatever the road conditions, minimises vehicle body oscillation, reduces the vibration transferred to the rider and significantly increases comfort and safety. To smooth the effect of the longitudinal forces of acceleration and deceleration, the system also makes use of the Ducati Traction Control (DTC) longitudinal accelerometer sensor, the ABS system pressure detectors for rapid calculation and activation of a response that reduces resulting vehicle oscillation, and the data from the Bosch IMU which dynamically reveals the bike's attitude on the two axes (lateral and vertical tilt).
  • TIRES AND WHEELS: The off-road soul of the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is further highlighted by the standard fitment of Pirelli SCORPIONTM Rally tires, 120/70 R19 at the front and 170/60 R17 at the rear. These tires allow serious off-road riding while guaranteeing excellent performance on asphalt. The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro features tubeless, spoked wheels with aluminum rims, 40 cross-mounted spokes and gravity-cast hubs. The measurements are 3.00 x 19 in. at the front and 4.50 x 17 in. at the rear.

Engine

  • ANTI-KNOCKING SENSOR: The Ducati Testastretta DVT features an integrated anti-knocking sensor; while optimized for high octane fuel (RON 95), thanks to an anti-knocking sensor the motor can also operate - without manual intervention - on lower octane normal fuel (RON 91) as are sometimes found in distant countries.
  • DESMODROMIC VARIABLE TIMING (DVT): The Desmodromic Variable Timing (DVT) uses hydraulically operated camshaft-phasers (two for each heads) to manipulate camshaft position relative to the sprocket connected to the timing belt and therefore vary valve timing. They are on both the intake and exhaust camshaft. The camshaft-phaser is a two-piece mechanism comprised an outer sprocket (2) connected to the timing belt and an inner rotor (3) connected to the camshaft that varies the valve timing by adjusting the rotation angle of the camshaft. The two pieces can move about 45° crankshaft degrees independently of each other in 0,45 sec. This inner rotor consists of a set of lobes, ports inside the phaser direct oil in or out of the space between (chambers) the outer housing and the lobes. Oil seals fit into machined grooves of the rotor to provide a tight seal between the chambers. The chambers are grouped into two sides. Left alone the outer sprocket will simply spin at the same rate as the inner rotor. As one group of chambers receives pressurized oil (system adds oil to one side of the lobe), and the others are vented it provides the force necessary to move or hold the rotor relative to the phaser body. The camshaft-phasers of each head are connected to the engine oil system via two solenoid valves (4) attached to the cylinder heads. They direct oil pressure to both the camshaft-phasers according to the signal from the engine control unit. The oil pressure acting in the cam phasers is continually adjusted by the oil control valves in order to set the right position of each camshaft. The position of the camshaft is dynamically controlled by a specific sensor mounted on the head covers. The engine control unit according to engine-information (engine speed, engine load and temperature and the positions of the crankshaft and camshafts) actuates the solenoid valves. They open oil galleries in the control housing. Engine oil flows through the control housing into the camshaft-phasers. The camshaft-phasers turn and adjust the camshaft timing according to the specifications of the engine control unit.
  • INDEPENDENT DUAL-SPARK CONFIGURATION: The Ducati Testastretta DVT is equipped with two sparks whose ignition is managed independently: (1) one is placed at the center of the combustion chamber, the additional one (2) on the external side. The benefit is to provide at any engine speeds a further more effective twin flame-front that ensures complete and efficient burning (quicker and more complete) of the fuel-air mixture within the combustion chamber across a shorter period of time. At low engine speeds the two plugs work simultaneously, while at high engine speeds the two plugs are managed independently with a dedicated ignition timing.
  • EXHAUST SYSTEM: The exhaust system layout is based on two primary manifolds that merge directly in the single 2-chamber silencer; the latter, in addition to acting as a 2-1-2 collector, contains the catalytic converter. From here two pipes exit directly towards the light, compact silencers, which are side-mounted in a high position and feature aluminium alloy outer sleeves.
  • DUCATI TESTASTRETTA DVT: The Testastretta DVT engine uses the Desmodromic valve actuation system that has made the Bologna-built bikes famous worldwide. This special system closes the intake and exhaust valves mechanically, with the same precision as they are opened. The design of the Ducati Testastretta DVT engine shows how Desmodromic valve actuation provides a clear advantage over traditional valve springs; at low revs the system requires less force because there are no springs to be compressed. This makes it possible to keep the individual valve timing adjusters compact, which minimizes their weight and allows them to be smoothly integrated. As a result, with a bore of 106 mm and stroke of 67.9 mm (giving a total displacement of 1198 cm³) the Ducati Testastretta DVT delivers 160 hp at 9500 rpm and 136 Nm of torque at 7500 rpm. Even at just 3500 rpm the available torque is already 100 Nm and remains near-constant, exceeding 110 Nm between 5,000 and 10,000 rpm. The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro mounts a six-speed gearbox on which the first gear ratio is shorter than that on the other bikes in the Multistrada family in order to improve off-road performance and ensure better handling on more technical, low-speed tracts. The clutch on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is of the oil-bath slipper type.
  • LONG MAINTENANCE INTERVALS: Constant investment in quality - ensured by design, advanced materials and cutting-edge engineering - has allowed Ducati to reduce scheduled maintenance requirements; routine maintenance intervals have been extended to 15,000 km 18,000 miles) (or one year) and valve timing adjustment to 30,000 km (9,000 miles), providing clear advantages for customers. This has been achieved by employing special materials for the valve seats, improving combustion efficiency, and containing the running temperature of the Ducati Testastretta DVT engine. Moreover, the innovative DVT system does not in any way complicate the valve timing adjustment procedure.

Equipment

  • FULL-TFT INSTRUMENT PANEL: The new Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro is equipped with a state of the art full-TFT instrument panel. The display's configuration is variable and automatically adapts to variations in environmental light, also changing according to the selected Riding Mode or fully selectable by the rider. There are four configurations, different in background style, information displayed, and display layout: the visualizations are different for rev-counter style, information displayed and display lay-out. Sport and Touring are the most complete for information displayed; in Sport the rpm bar graph has the same style as those of the Panigales; in Urban only the most essential riding information are displayed, Enduro view adds rpm bar graph.
  • RIDING MODE: Enduro: With the Enduro Riding Mode the off-road character of the Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro comes to the fore: engine power is set to 100 hp and DSS Evolution intervention is reconfigured for rough terrain riding. DTC system settings ensure maximum off-road grip and acceleration, while the DWC is disengaged. The ABS, instead, is set to Level 1, the most suitable for low-grip surfaces: at this intervention level rear wheel lift detection is deactivated, as are the cornering and ABS functions on the rear wheel so that it can be locked. Touring: In Touring Riding Mode maximum power is 160 hp but delivery is smooth and progressive. Active safety is enhanced by higher DTC and DWC intervention levels. The ABS is set to interaction Level 3, perfect for touring, allowing for supremely confident riding thanks to rear wheel lift prevention, optimisation of combined braking and the active cornering function. The DSS Evolution is programmed to provide a suspension set-up suited to long rides, maximising comfort for both rider and passenger. Sport: Selecting Sport Riding Mode transforms the Multistrada 1200 Enduro into a high-adrenalin 160 hp machine with a torque of 136 Nm and a sport-style suspension set up. This Riding Mode is also characterised by reduced DTC and DWC intervention. With ABS set to Level 2, rear wheel lift detection is disengaged but the cornering function remains on, perfect for riders who want to push it to the max. Urban: Selecting Urban Riding Mode reduces the power to 100 hp and applies suspension settings that let the rider overcome frequently encountered urban obstacles such as bumps and manhole covers with ease. DTC and DWC settings are high while the ABS is set to the so-called "Safe & Stable" Level 3. This setting allows for supremely confident riding thanks to rear wheel lift prevention, optimisation of combined braking and the active cornering function.
  • DUCATI CORNERING LIGHTS (DCL): The Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) constantly supplies lean angle data to the Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL) that equip the Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro to provide a greater active safety at night or whenever visibility is poor. When entering a bend, the dedicated LED located in the headlights turn on in the direction of the road, according to a defined lean angle, allowing to see around the corner instead of having to ride into darkness. When the lean angle sensor detects the bike is bending the LED are turned on and the illumination is directed into the bend to balance the angle of lean and as consequence to become any obstacles visible sooner.
  • DUCATI SAFETY PACK (DSP): The Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) is offered standard throughout the Multistrada 1200 range, giving evidence of how Ducati gives top priority to road safety. Designed to achieve superior control and active safety, the DSP includes Brembo's state-of-the-art 9.1ME multi-calibration cornering ABS with three mappings and 8-levels Ducati Traction Control (DTC).
  • PREMIUM HANDLEBAR SWITCHES: The handlebar switches are easy to operate thanks to generous dimension and extremely intuitive with one single operation for button. High quality look and feel is combined with backlight for the main functions to easily locate buttons even during night time riding.
  • DUCATI WHEELIE CONTROL (DWC): This system analyses the attitude of the bike (to detect any front wheel lift) and controls torque and power accordingly to maximize acceleration in safety without destabilizing balance. Like DTC, it features 8-level adjustment and is incorporated into the Riding Modes.
  • FULL-LED HEADLIGHTS: The new Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro features the latest lighting technologies; the headlights use LED technology for position, low and high beams while at the rear a 3D light guide for position light and LED lights for stop light. Full-LED front indicators integrated in the hand guards and traditional lamps indicators at the rear complete the lighting system.
  • HANDS-FREE IFNITION: The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro can be started without the use of a mechanical key. As the rider approaches the bike with the electronic key in his pocket, the system will recognize the key code within a 2-metre range and enable actuation. At this point, a simple press of the key-on button will switch on the panel, and then the rider can start the engine. The steering lock is electrically actuated. When parking the bike, it can be actuated by pressing the key-on button. The steering lock is released automatically at the next key-on.
  • CRUISE CONTROL: The new Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro comes standard with an electronic cruise control function making lengthy motorway rides more relaxed and comfortable. The function is activated by pressing a dedicated easy-to-access button at the left-hand end of the handlebars, via the same button it is possible to increase or reduce the currently selected road speed. Here the two throttle valves are activated by the engine control and independently of the accelerator twist grip. When the front or rear brake or the clutch are activated or the throttle grip is turned in the opposite direction, cruise control is switched off. The "Resume" function allows the rider to re-activate the originally selected speed, which the vehicle then automatically restores.
  • DUCATI MULTIMEDIA SYSTEM (DMS): The new Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro is equipped as standard with the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) that thanks to Bluetooth technology allows to accept an incoming phone call, to select and listen to the favorite songs and be alerted for a new SMS. When you get on the bike the smart-phone automatically connects via Bluetooth with the bike; connection allows to manage the controls of the main multimedia functions while the TFT display the listening track, the new SMS icon or the name of the incoming caller; audio call and music are transmitted to earphones of driver and passenger. Moreover the DMS via the Multistrada Link smartphones application (available for Android and IOS), provides a number of functionality designed to enrich and share the riding experience.
  • MULTISTRADA LINK: With Ducati Multistrada Link, each journey becomes an even more engaging, ultra-connected ride riding experience. Thanks to the standard Bluetooth technology on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro, the Multistrada Link app lets users record numerous parameters on their smartphones before, during and after a ride. Speed, lean angle, power, fuel consumption and much more besides can be saved and consulted at any time thanks to the travel diary, letting riders re-live the route in the form of maps, descriptions and photos so that not a single memory is lost. The Multistrada Link also lets users check maximum values for several parameters and pinpoint where they occurred on the route; at the end of a journey it's also possible to display how much, in terms of percentages, the different Riding Modes were used. Lastly, the Multistrada Link keeps track of the achievement of personal goals related to use of the App and the rider's Multistrada by awarding badges and updating performance data.
  • BOSCH 9.1ME MULTI-CALIBRATION CORNERING ABS: The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro features a Brembo braking system with the Bosch 9.1ME ABS ECU, an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP). Cornering ABS makes use of the Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform to optimize front and rear braking power even in critical situations with the bike at considerable lean angles. Through interaction with the Riding Modes, the system provides compromise-free solutions whatever the situation or riding conditions. Thanks to its ABS control processor the Multistrada makes use of an Electronic Combined Braking System that is optimized for the Urban and Touring Riding Modes, but has a lower degree of interaction in Sport mode where combined braking is less desirable. The combined braking system increases stability by using four pressure detectors to allocate braking power optimally between front and rear. Designed to improve rear tire control during hard braking, the rear wheel lift detection is fully enabled in Urban and Touring Riding Modes yet disabled in Sport and Enduro modes. ABS can also be applied to the front wheel only, as is the case in Enduro Riding Mode, the aim being to allow rear wheel lock on the dirt. ABS can also be fully disabled from the instrument panel in any Riding Mode, and settings can be saved and recalled at the next Key-On. The system integrates smoothly with the Ducati Riding Modes and has three available levels. Level 1 maximizes off-road performance by disabling rear wheel lift detection and allowing the rear wheel to lock, with ABS being applied only at the front. Level 2 ensures, in Sport mode, equilibrium between front and rear without rear wheel lift detection but with the Cornering function on and calibrated for sports-style riding. Level 3 allows, in Touring and Urban modes, optimization of the combined braking action with rear wheel lift detection on and performance and with Cornering functionality on and calibrated for maximum safety.
  • VEHICLE HOLD CONTROL (VHC): On the Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro, the ABS features the Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) system. When activated, the latter holds the vehicle steady by applying rear wheel braking (if unused automatic deactivation occurs after 9 seconds). This provides riders with easier restarts; this is because it modulates brake pressure during starts, leaving the rider free to focus on throttle and clutch control. The function is activated when, with the bike at standstill and the kickstand up, the rider applies high pressure on the front or rear brake levers. On activation the system calculates and applies, according to vehicle status, pressure on the rear brake system by acting on the pump and the ABS control unit valves. This system can be activated at all ABS levels, except for when the ABS is switched off. VHC activation is indicated by a warning light. The same warning light starts flashing when the system is about to release pressure on the rear wheel and cease holding the vehicle: pressure reduction is gradual.

Chassis

  • BREMBO BRAKES AND CORNERING ABS: The Multistrada 1200 Enduro features Brembo brakes with the Bosch 9.1ME ABS ECU, an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP). Cornering ABS makes use of the Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform to optimise front and rear braking power even in critical situations with the bike at considerable lean angles. The front braking system on the new Multistrada 1200 features monobloc radially-mounted Brembo 4-piston callipers with 32 mm diameter pistons and 2 pads, a radial master cylinder with adjustable lever, and dual 320 mm discs. At the rear, there is a single 265 mm diameter disc gripped by a floating calliper, again from Brembo. These components ensure top braking performance, a standard Ducati feature.
  • TRELLIS FRAME: The new Multistrada 1200 Enduro mounts components that, in terms of technological content and performance, are nothing less than state-of-the-art. Key chassis parameters such as vehicle wheelbase, swingarm length and steering geometry (trail and offset) have been defined by seeking out the best compromise between off-road riding, handling and high-speed stability. The Multistrada 1200 Enduro has a solid frontal Trellis frame with large-diameter, low-thickness tubing while the two lateral sub-frames are closed off by a rear load-bearing, techno-polymer, fibreglass element to maximise torsional rigidity. The 205 mm ground clearance is an essential advantage when heading off-road.
  • DOUBLE-SIDED SWINGING ARM: The double-sided swingarm is made of shell-cast aluminium, its combination of brushed and rough-finished parts offers eye-catching appeal. Specially designed for off-road use, this tough swingarm combines limited weight with an excellent ability to absorb the punishment meted out by off-road riding.
  • OVERVIEW: The Multistrada 1200 Enduro enhances its globetrotter characteristics with the Pro version. The adventurous soul of the Multistrada reaches new heights thanks to this new version dedicated to those that always take the road less traveled. The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro is offered in a Sand color scheme that includes protective stickers with the ""Enduro"" logo on the side of the fuel tank. The two-tone Sand color seat is also unique to the Enduro Pro, as are the black subframe, clutch and alternator covers. The off-road soul of the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is further highlighted by the standard fitment of Pirelli SCORPIONTM Rally tires, 120/70 R19 at the front and 170/60 R17 at the rear. These tires allow serious off-road riding while guaranteeing excellent performance on asphalt. The Multistrada Enduro Pro also features Ducati Performance by Touratech side protection crash bars complete with LED lights, a low windscreen that is ideal for riding while standing on the pegs and a street-legal Ducati Performance by Termignoni slip-on silencer.
  • ERGONOMICS: The riding position of the Multistrada 1200 Enduro has been designed to ensure optimum off-road handling. The handlebars are higher and the seat is designed to maximise contact between rider and bike. The footpegs are made of steel and have removable rubber covers. The lever design also takes its cue from the off-road world: the rear brake lever can easily be height-adjusted while the gear lever has a special coupling to prevent breakage in the event of a fall or contact with an obstacle.
  • DUCATI SKYHOOK SUSPENSION (DSS) EVO: The DSS (Ducati Skyhook Suspension) Evolution system on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is based on a 48 mm fork and a Sachs rear shock. These ensure 200 mm of wheel travel both front and back. Electronic suspension allows for continuous rebound and compression damping adjustment, with semi-active control giving optimal vehicle balance. In practice, the system keeps the attitude of the bike steady whatever the road conditions, minimises vehicle body oscillation, reduces the vibration transferred to the rider and significantly increases comfort and safety. To smooth the effect of the longitudinal forces of acceleration and deceleration, the system also makes use of the Ducati Traction Control (DTC) longitudinal accelerometer sensor, the ABS system pressure detectors for rapid calculation and activation of a response that reduces resulting vehicle oscillation, and the data from the Bosch IMU which dynamically reveals the bike's attitude on the two axes (lateral and vertical tilt).

These tires allow serious off-road riding while guaranteeing excellent performance on asphalt. The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro features tubeless, spoked wheels with aluminum rims, 40 cross-mounted spokes and gravity-cast hubs. The measurements are 3.00 x 19 in. at the front and 4.50 x 17 in. at the rear.

Engine

  • ANTI-KNOCKING SENSOR: The Ducati Testastretta DVT features an integrated anti-knocking sensor; while optimized for high octane fuel (RON 95), thanks to an anti-knocking sensor the motor can also operate - without manual intervention - on lower octane normal fuel (RON 91) as are sometimes found in distant countries.

The position of the camshaft is dynamically controlled by a specific sensor mounted on the head covers. The engine control unit according to engine-information (engine speed, engine load and temperature and the positions of the crankshaft and camshafts) actuates the solenoid valves. They open oil galleries in the control housing. Engine oil flows through the control housing into the camshaft-phasers. The camshaft-phasers turn and adjust the camshaft timing according to the specifications of the engine control unit.
  • INDEPENDENT DUAL-SPARK CONFIGURATION: The Ducati Testastretta DVT is equipped with two sparks whose ignition is managed independently: (1) one is placed at the center of the combustion chamber, the additional one (2) on the external side. The benefit is to provide at any engine speeds a further more effective twin flame-front that ensures complete and efficient burning (quicker and more complete) of the fuel-air mixture within the combustion chamber across a shorter period of time. At low engine speeds the two plugs work simultaneously, while at high engine speeds the two plugs are managed independently with a dedicated ignition timing.
  • EXHAUST SYSTEM: The exhaust system layout is based on two primary manifolds that merge directly in the single 2-chamber silencer; the latter, in addition to acting as a 2-1-2 collector, contains the catalytic converter. From here two pipes exit directly towards the light, compact silencers, which are side-mounted in a high position and feature aluminium alloy outer sleeves.
  • DUCATI TESTASTRETTA DVT: The Testastretta DVT engine uses the Desmodromic valve actuation system that has made the Bologna-built bikes famous worldwide. This special system closes the intake and exhaust valves mechanically, with the same precision as they are opened. The design of the Ducati Testastretta DVT engine shows how Desmodromic valve actuation provides a clear advantage over traditional valve springs; at low revs the system requires less force because there are no springs to be compressed. This makes it possible to keep the individual valve timing adjusters compact, which minimizes their weight and allows them to be smoothly integrated. As a result, with a bore of 106 mm and stroke of 67.9 mm (giving a total displacement of 1198 cm³) the Ducati Testastretta DVT delivers 160 hp at 9500 rpm and 136 Nm of torque at 7500 rpm. Even at just 3500 rpm the available torque is already 100 Nm and remains near-constant, exceeding 110 Nm between 5,000 and 10,000 rpm. The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro mounts a six-speed gearbox on which the first gear ratio is shorter than that on the other bikes in the Multistrada family in order to improve off-road performance and ensure better handling on more technical, low-speed tracts. The clutch on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is of the oil-bath slipper type.
  • LONG MAINTENANCE INTERVALS: Constant investment in quality - ensured by design, advanced materials and cutting-edge engineering - has allowed Ducati to reduce scheduled maintenance requirements; routine maintenance intervals have been extended to 15,000 km 18,000 miles) (or one year) and valve timing adjustment to 30,000 km (9,000 miles), providing clear advantages for customers. This has been achieved by employing special materials for the valve seats, improving combustion efficiency, and containing the running temperature of the Ducati Testastretta DVT engine. Moreover, the innovative DVT system does not in any way complicate the valve timing adjustment procedure.

Equipment

  • FULL-TFT INSTRUMENT PANEL: The new Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro is equipped with a state of the art full-TFT instrument panel. The display's configuration is variable and automatically adapts to variations in environmental light, also changing according to the selected Riding Mode or fully selectable by the rider. There are four configurations, different in background style, information displayed, and display layout: the visualizations are different for rev-counter style, information displayed and display lay-out. Sport and Touring are the most complete for information displayed; in Sport the rpm bar graph has the same style as those of the Panigales; in Urban only the most essential riding information are displayed, Enduro view adds rpm bar graph.
  • RIDING MODE: Enduro: With the Enduro Riding Mode the off-road character of the Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro comes to the fore: engine power is set to 100 hp and DSS Evolution intervention is reconfigured for rough terrain riding. DTC system settings ensure maximum off-road grip and acceleration, while the DWC is disengaged. The ABS, instead, is set to Level 1, the most suitable for low-grip surfaces: at this intervention level rear wheel lift detection is deactivated, as are the cornering and ABS functions on the rear wheel so that it can be locked. Touring: In Touring Riding Mode maximum power is 160 hp but delivery is smooth and progressive. Active safety is enhanced by higher DTC and DWC intervention levels. The ABS is set to interaction Level 3, perfect for touring, allowing for supremely confident riding thanks to rear wheel lift prevention, optimisation of combined braking and the active cornering function. The DSS Evolution is programmed to provide a suspension set-up suited to long rides, maximising comfort for both rider and passenger. Sport: Selecting Sport Riding Mode transforms the Multistrada 1200 Enduro into a high-adrenalin 160 hp machine with a torque of 136 Nm and a sport-style suspension set up. This Riding Mode is also characterised by reduced DTC and DWC intervention. With ABS set to Level 2, rear wheel lift detection is disengaged but the cornering function remains on, perfect for riders who want to push it to the max. Urban: Selecting Urban Riding Mode reduces the power to 100 hp and applies suspension settings that let the rider overcome frequently encountered urban obstacles such as bumps and manhole covers with ease. DTC and DWC settings are high while the ABS is set to the so-called "Safe & Stable" Level 3. This setting allows for supremely confident riding thanks to rear wheel lift prevention, optimisation of combined braking and the active cornering function.
  • DUCATI CORNERING LIGHTS (DCL): The Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) constantly supplies lean angle data to the Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL) that equip the Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro to provide a greater active safety at night or whenever visibility is poor. When entering a bend, the dedicated LED located in the headlights turn on in the direction of the road, according to a defined lean angle, allowing to see around the corner instead of having to ride into darkness. When the lean angle sensor detects the bike is bending the LED are turned on and the illumination is directed into the bend to balance the angle of lean and as consequence to become any obstacles visible sooner.
  • DUCATI SAFETY PACK (DSP): The Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) is offered standard throughout the Multistrada 1200 range, giving evidence of how Ducati gives top priority to road safety. Designed to achieve superior control and active safety, the DSP includes Brembo's state-of-the-art 9.1ME multi-calibration cornering ABS with three mappings and 8-levels Ducati Traction Control (DTC).
  • PREMIUM HANDLEBAR SWITCHES: The handlebar switches are easy to operate thanks to generous dimension and extremely intuitive with one single operation for button. High quality look and feel is combined with backlight for the main functions to easily locate buttons even during night time riding.
  • DUCATI WHEELIE CONTROL (DWC): This system analyses the attitude of the bike (to detect any front wheel lift) and controls torque and power accordingly to maximize acceleration in safety without destabilizing balance. Like DTC, it features 8-level adjustment and is incorporated into the Riding Modes.
  • FULL-LED HEADLIGHTS: The new Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro features the latest lighting technologies; the headlights use LED technology for position, low and high beams while at the rear a 3D light guide for position light and LED lights for stop light. Full-LED front indicators integrated in the hand guards and traditional lamps indicators at the rear complete the lighting system.
  • HANDS-FREE IFNITION: The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro can be started without the use of a mechanical key. As the rider approaches the bike with the electronic key in his pocket, the system will recognize the key code within a 2-metre range and enable actuation. At this point, a simple press of the key-on button will switch on the panel, and then the rider can start the engine. The steering lock is electrically actuated. When parking the bike, it can be actuated by pressing the key-on button. The steering lock is released automatically at the next key-on.
  • CRUISE CONTROL: The new Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro comes standard with an electronic cruise control function making lengthy motorway rides more relaxed and comfortable. The function is activated by pressing a dedicated easy-to-access button at the left-hand end of the handlebars, via the same button it is possible to increase or reduce the currently selected road speed. Here the two throttle valves are activated by the engine control and independently of the accelerator twist grip. When the front or rear brake or the clutch are activated or the throttle grip is turned in the opposite direction, cruise control is switched off. The "Resume" function allows the rider to re-activate the originally selected speed, which the vehicle then automatically restores.
  • DUCATI MULTIMEDIA SYSTEM (DMS): The new Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro is equipped as standard with the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) that thanks to Bluetooth technology allows to accept an incoming phone call, to select and listen to the favorite songs and be alerted for a new SMS. When you get on the bike the smart-phone automatically connects via Bluetooth with the bike; connection allows to manage the controls of the main multimedia functions while the TFT display the listening track, the new SMS icon or the name of the incoming caller; audio call and music are transmitted to earphones of driver and passenger. Moreover the DMS via the Multistrada Link smartphones application (available for Android and IOS), provides a number of functionality designed to enrich and share the riding experience.
  • MULTISTRADA LINK: With Ducati Multistrada Link, each journey becomes an even more engaging, ultra-connected ride riding experience. Thanks to the standard Bluetooth technology on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro, the Multistrada Link app lets users record numerous parameters on their smartphones before, during and after a ride. Speed, lean angle, power, fuel consumption and much more besides can be saved and consulted at any time thanks to the travel diary, letting riders re-live the route in the form of maps, descriptions and photos so that not a single memory is lost. The Multistrada Link also lets users check maximum values for several parameters and pinpoint where they occurred on the route; at the end of a journey it's also possible to display how much, in terms of percentages, the different Riding Modes were used. Lastly, the Multistrada Link keeps track of the achievement of personal goals related to use of the App and the rider's Multistrada by awarding badges and updating performance data.
  • BOSCH 9.1ME MULTI-CALIBRATION CORNERING ABS: The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro features a Brembo braking system with the Bosch 9.1ME ABS ECU, an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP). Cornering ABS makes use of the Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform to optimize front and rear braking power even in critical situations with the bike at considerable lean angles. Through interaction with the Riding Modes, the system provides compromise-free solutions whatever the situation or riding conditions. Thanks to its ABS control processor the Multistrada makes use of an Electronic Combined Braking System that is optimized for the Urban and Touring Riding Modes, but has a lower degree of interaction in Sport mode where combined braking is less desirable. The combined braking system increases stability by using four pressure detectors to allocate braking power optimally between front and rear. Designed to improve rear tire control during hard braking, the rear wheel lift detection is fully enabled in Urban and Touring Riding Modes yet disabled in Sport and Enduro modes. ABS can also be applied to the front wheel only, as is the case in Enduro Riding Mode, the aim being to allow rear wheel lock on the dirt. ABS can also be fully disabled from the instrument panel in any Riding Mode, and settings can be saved and recalled at the next Key-On. The system integrates smoothly with the Ducati Riding Modes and has three available levels. Level 1 maximizes off-road performance by disabling rear wheel lift detection and allowing the rear wheel to lock, with ABS being applied only at the front. Level 2 ensures, in Sport mode, equilibrium between front and rear without rear wheel lift detection but with the Cornering function on and calibrated for sports-style riding. Level 3 allows, in Touring and Urban modes, optimization of the combined braking action with rear wheel lift detection on and performance and with Cornering functionality on and calibrated for maximum safety.
  • VEHICLE HOLD CONTROL (VHC): On the Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro, the ABS features the Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) system. When activated, the latter holds the vehicle steady by applying rear wheel braking (if unused automatic deactivation occurs after 9 seconds). This provides riders with easier restarts; this is because it modulates brake pressure during starts, leaving the rider free to focus on throttle and clutch control. The function is activated when, with the bike at standstill and the kickstand up, the rider applies high pressure on the front or rear brake levers. On activation the system calculates and applies, according to vehicle status, pressure on the rear brake system by acting on the pump and the ABS control unit valves. This system can be activated at all ABS levels, except for when the ABS is switched off. VHC activation is indicated by a warning light. The same warning light starts flashing when the system is about to release pressure on the rear wheel and cease holding the vehicle: pressure reduction is gradual.
