Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Price

Ducati Multistrada 1200 S has launched a special edition Multistrada 1200 special edition to celebrate winning the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb in Colorado, America last year.

The Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition celebrates Greg Tracy’s victory and has Ducati Corse-style paint scheme with passenger foot-peg hangers and engine guard anodised in black finish and red pin-striping on the wheels.

In addition to the original equipment silencer and screen, the Pikes Peak Special Edition arrives with an EU approved Ducati Performance carbon fibre silencer by Termignoni and a race-derived low screen in carbon fibre. A Ducati Performance carbon fibre front mudguard, and custom made seat detailed with red stitching complete the specs.

The Multistrada 1200 S new three-piece frame underpins the MTS1200, using a new cast aluminum component around the swingarm pivot area to join with Ducati's traditional steel-trellis arrangement up front. We're told to expect a dry weight somewhere around the 425-lb mark.

Behind an adjustable windscreen resides comprehensive instrumentation that will include displays for trip time, lap time, range to empty, and current and average fuel consumption. Don't be surprised if you see a form of keyless ignition similar to what's found on modern Harleys. At least one, probably two, 12-volt sockets will be part of the package. Anti-lock brakes will be optional.

The revolutionary Bosch-Brembo ABS system will be available for the Multistrada 1200; a first for Ducati which will reinforce the brand's reputation for world-class stopping power. The ABS system is one of the three available option packages for the bike, and will bring the MSRP to $16,495.

The second option package for the Multistrada 1200 is the "S Sport" package. This package will include the Bosch-Brembo ABS system; as well as Ducati Traction Control, and the Ducati-Öhlins Electronic Suspension system.
