New 2018 Ducati Multistrada 1260!

Wasn’t the big Multistrada already good enough?! No? Oh, okay then, Ducati, what else is up your sleeves bar a bigger engine? Quite a bit, you say? Do tell…

Yep, another Ducati engine has grown in size, this time on their Adventure bike with a 1,262cc lump which gives even more torque and makes up for any power sapping those pesky Euro4 regs are responsible for. This engine powers multiple models: Stock, S, S D-Air, Enduro and Pikes Peak.


But Ducati have done more, including a new panles, newchassis with a longer swingarm, longer wheelbase and revised geometry.

It also now, for the first time, comes with a quick-shifter for both up and down gear changes – which is good because it always felt like it was missing to be honest!


It also features a new link application,so you can mate your phone to it for data analysis and a whole heap of other features via the brand new TFT dash.

And that’s yer lot!
