Meet the new Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro
New engine for 2019: 156 hp and 128 NM. Plus: updated chassis, look and features
Ducati unveiled a new version of its Multistrada Enduro - the long-travel, off-road oriented version of the Multistrada. It’s powered by the Testastretta DVT 1262 engine and it features a renewed chassis which, according to Ducati, enables better handling at low speeds.
The central piece is the DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) engine that enables 85% of the total torque below the 3,500 rpm mark.
Ducati also claims that the new Multistrada Enduro is more nimble at low speed maneuvers, and that might probably come due to different ergonomics and a lower centre of gravity.
As for the electronics, there’s a full range of safety and comfort features: cornering ABS, traction control, riding modes, power modes, wheelie control, cornering lights, vehicle hold control, ride by wire, electronic semi-active suspension. And, of course, cruise control, hands-free startup and backlit handlebar switches so you can easily operate all these features.
The maintenance intervals are set to 15,000 km or one year, while the valve clearance check is set at 30,000 km.
