Ducati Multistrada 1200 Features
- Engine Features - The New Ducati Multistrada 1200's incredible valve performances of engines are only possible because of Ducati's unique Desmodromic system, where valve closure is activated mechanically. The gearbox and final drive ratios have also been optimised to enable reduced fuel consumption and achieve increased riding comfort by reducing vibration. The Multistrada 1200 features an oil bath clutch with slipper function and super-light feel at the lever. Its design uses a progressive self-servo mechanism that presses the plates together when under drive from the engine, enabling the reduction of the clutch spring rates. The Testastretta 11° features vacuum die-cast crankcases, formed using Vacural® technology, a process that achieves a significant weight saving and ensures consistent wall thickness and increased strength. The Testastretta 11° is an engine for all environments and the perfect 'game-changer' for the four-bikes-in-one concept.
- Chassis Features - The New Ducati Multistrada 1200 signature Trellis frame uses large diameter, light gauge tubing with two central cast aluminium sections and a Trellis rear subframe. The high pressure, die-cast, magnesium front subframe reduces the high, frontal weight and contributes to chassis feel and control. Every single component of the Multistrada 1200, therefore, has been designed to achieve weight reduction without compromising its load-bearing capacity. The ‘ergonomics triangle’ of handlebar, seat and footpegs has been designed for both the rider and passenger, optimizing comfort while providing a commanding and upright riding position. The single-sided rear swingarm is made using a single piece casting, with fabricated and welded sections creating a strong, hollow and lightweight component that contributes considerably to the 1200 Multistrada’s sure-footed handling.
