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.

It gonna looked different from the old model for sure and having a 1200cc engine would be good too.smiley
