On October 12th in Bologna, Italy Ducati announced the arrival of the 1260 Enduro, the Bologna-built globetrotter has become even more user-friendly and fun, letting riders experience unlimited Ducati technology, performance and comfort whatever the challenge.
Presented back in 2016, the Multistrada 1200 Enduro was Ducati’s first travel enduro. The Enduro mounts the 158 hp, 1,262 cc Testastretta DVT with variable cam timing which made its debut last year on the Multistrada 1260. Compared to the previous version it has an extra 64 cc of displacement and a series of improvements that give it extremely smooth yet excellent pulling power right from the bottom of the rev range, making the bike more fun to ride than ever. While the new Testastretta engine provides impressive performance, power is kept under control and delivered safely thanks to the Riding Modes, the new Ride by Wire function which ensures smoother, more satisfying throttle control, and the DQS (Ducati Quick Shift) up and down which significantly improves the ride experience. The standard electronics package includes Bosch Cornering ABS, Cornering Lights, Wheelie Control, Traction Control and Vehicle Hold Control, making this bike the segment benchmark.
With spoked wheels – 19-inch at the front and 17-inch at the rear – the Multistrada 1260 Enduro is perfect for long adventure rides. Featuring re-calibrated electronic semi-active Sachs suspension (with 185 mm of travel both front and rear) and a 30-litre fuel tank, the Enduro is, with a range of 450 km and beyond, an unstoppable globetrotter on any terrain.
The new Multistrada 1260 Enduro will be available in Sand color in North America. There’s also a wide range of dedicated accessories, such as aluminium panniers and top case or a tire-pressure indicator, as well as the Touring, Sport, Urban and Enduro packages. The Multistrada 1260 Enduro will be previewed in November at the EICMA show in Milan and arrive at North American dealerships in February 2019.
