Ducati has released a web series called “The wild side of Ducati”, featuring the new Multistrada 1200 Enduro. Covering six episodes, the series is available on Ducati’s website, and highlights the capabilities and features of the Multistrada.

Each three-minute episode follows Multistrada 1200 Enduro riders across various types of terrain, showcasing the global touring capability of the bike. Released every two weeks, the videos also explains the rider aids and other electronics built into the bike that help it tackle rugged terrain.

The first episode puts the Enduro on a motocross track in southern Italy, as well as riding across Tuscany, Sardinia and Spain. The bike features Ducati’s liquid-cooled Testastretta V-twin with variable valve timing. The Desmodromic cylinder heads have four-valves per cylinder and twin-spark ignition.

Displacing 1198 cc, the engine’s power output is a claimed 160 hp with 136 Nm torque at 7,500 rpm. Bosch EFI takes care of fuelling with a fly-by-wire system linked to twin 56 mm throttle bodies.

Final drive is chain, with power fed through a six-speed gearbox with a wet, multi-plate hydraulic clutch.

The Sachs upside-down 48 mm diameter forks feature electronic compression and rebound adjustment, and Ducati’s Skyhook Suspension (DSS) system controls fork movement. The rear is suspended on a fully-adjustable Sachs unit, again with DSS, and full electronic control.

Braking is with a pair of 320 mm floating discs in front, matched to Brembo Monobloc four-piston calipers, and the rear has a 265 mm disc and two-piston floating caliper. Cornering ABS is standard on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro.

A new 19-inch front wheel with wire spokes, in keeping with the “Enduro” image, is unique to this bike, along with a 30-litre fuel tank. Seat height is 870 mm, and an optional seat is available which gives 890 to 850 mm of height adjustability.

The Multistrada 1200 Enduro is expected to arrive in Malaysia in February or March 2016, and is estimated to retail between RM140,000 and RM150,000. The bike retails in the UK for £16,690 (RM107,000) for the base version in Ducati red, up to £19,220 (RM123,000) for the ‘Pikes Peak’ version with Ohlins suspension, Termignoni exhaust, carbon-fibre parts and three-spoke wheels.
