Ducati Multistrada

Ducati Multistrada

These latest spy shots of the Ducati Strada Aperta come to reveal the fact that the Italian motorcycle manufacturer has entered in a straight line with the development of its new bike in expectancy of the 2009 Milan Show.

The future Multistrada won’t be a veritable street enduro model, but more of a sport-touring motorcycle offering the ability to hit the off-road once in a while. We look at it as to a taller, comfier and possibly more often dirtier Yamaha FZ1 , but it is a totally different thing when it comes to the engine. Unlike the Fazer’s in-line four-cylinder engine, the spied bike will be powered by a 4-valve, liquid-cooled Testastretta Evoluzione engine displacing, most likely, 1200cc.

If it is to look at it in terms of engine configuration and expected performance, models such as the Triumph Tiger and KTM 990 SMT seem more adequate for the comparison.

When Ducati set out to built the sport-touring Multistrada 1100 model they did it with top notch engineering, refinement and, most of all, style. As a 2009 model year, this represents the Italian way of building a bike that would prove efficient on the way to and from work during the first five days of the week and great fun during weekend trips as well.

Not only that, but Ducati also offers the “S” Multistrada 1100 model, which is no more or less than an upgraded model with performance suspensions and even carbon fiber insertions.

After revealing with courtesy of MCN the first spy shots featuring the all-new 2010 Ducati Multistrada , we get to see in the same way a proper computer interpretation of the bike that is meant to become THE alternative for the BMW R1200GS.

This is how the adventure-style Ducati will supposedly look when it will be shipped to dealers in 2010 and these lasts confirm it: "This is an accurate representation of what the bike looks like. I know I could sell loads of them this week if they were available."

Ducati plans are to present the new Multistrada at the Milan Motorcycle Show this November and start selling it at the beginning of 2010.

Ducati has long been planning to replace the Multistrada 1100 go anywhere, do anything bike and by what this spy picture shows, this is the model that will substitute Pierre Terblanche’s creation.

The bike was spotted during tests in Italy and it seems that Ducati is close to giving a green light for the new model. By what we’re able to see in the picture, the sport tires and a thick single-sided swingarm will keep it on the streets and – if it is to listen to the rumors – it will very much belong there.

No wonder, as insiders “leak” that the Multistrada replacement will feature the 1099cc engine that currently powers the Ducati 1098.Just to spice things up, I’ll mention that the DTC traction control won’t be excluded, but that’s all we know for now.

Fans are eagerly waiting to see this bike at the Milan show in November and, later, in their garages as 2010 model years.

We’ll be back with more information on this future model as soon as we have it, hopefully, together with some better spy pics.

Ducati introduces the pearl white color for the Hypermotard and Multistrada motorcycles. These two models are latest to receive the now famous Ducati color which has already made the Ducati 848 and Ducati 696 sell with even greater success.

The fiery Red Ducati color will only cover the frame while the new carbon-grey finish is applied to the outer engine castings of the simple Hypermotard 1100.

On the Multistrada 1100, only the “S” will feature the Ducati pearl white livery. The new shade contrasts with the frame’s racing grey and with the racing-like carbon-fiber components which are present on this model, making it as classy as it is sporty.

Ducati plans on presenting the two models at the International Motorcycle Show in Cologne (October), even though they will start being sold this month.

THRILLING PERFORMANCE

If you’re looking for versatility and maximum performance and superb componentry, then look no further than the Ducati Multistrada 1000s DS. It is this extreme versatility and sport performance that prompted the US magazine Cycle World, the world’s best selling motorcycling monthly, to nominate the 1000s DS “best Sport Tourer of 2005”.

PURE PASSION

The Multistrada 1000 DS has widened the horizons of all those who are “sport motorcyclists” at heart but still want a bike they can use 7 days a week. This new approach to motorcycling leaves no room for compromise and has given the Multistrada a unique personality and character in true Ducati style.

VERSATILITY AND AGILITY

Agile and light, the entry-level model is aimed at riders looking for a versatile, essential motorcycle that is, above all, easy and fun to ride. User-friendliness is enhanced by a riding position 20 mm lower and a weight 13 kg (29 lbs) lighter than on the 1000 cc versions, thus allowing more riders to feel secure in all situations.
