  • Ducati Multistrada 1260 and 1260S launched starting at INR 15,99,000

    Ducati India has launched the Ducati Multistrada 1260 and 1260 S in India. The Multistrada 1260 is priced at INR 15,99,000 and the Multistrada 1260 S is priced at INR 18,06,000. The Multistrada is the flag-bearer of the Adventure tourer category in Ducati’s portfolio and the higher displacement variety of the same is surely going to help Ducati to establish the Multistrada as an elite adventure tourer.

    The new Multistrada 1260

    This ADV comes loaded with tech up to the brim. The new Multistrada now displaces 1262 cc, a little more than the variant it replaces. The power figures are impressive as well. The new mill now churns out 158 hp at 9,750 rpm and maximum torque of 13.2 kgm at 7,500 rpm. The Testastretta DVT 1262 cc engine is Euro 4 compliant and Ducati claims that it offers better rideability than the previous iteration. Talking about the numbers, Ducati says the engine offers the highest torque output in its class at 4000 rpm, where the riders find themselves most often.

    It packs some serious firepower when it comes to the tech front. It comes with a new ride by wire system which results in smoother power delivery. For the people who want an adrenaline filled ride, Ducati has thrown in DQS (Ducati Quick Shift --Up & Down). Vehicle Hold Control (VHC), Bosch Cornering ABS, Ducati Traction Control, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), Cruise Control, Backlit handlebar switches, Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) are some more features which make the Multistrada a true pioneer of the future. Other major changes include updated chassis, with a longer swing arm and wheelbase and revised geometry up front, which assists in sharper handling in corners without compromising with stability even when riding with a pillion. Or if the motorcycle is all loaded up with panniers.

    Commenting on the launch, Sergi Canovas, Managing Director, Ducati India said, “ Eight years of Multitstrada innovation has led to the production of this masterpiece, directed to expand every adventure enthusiast’s comfort zone with its versatility. The new Multistrada 1260 range is a consummate sport-touring adventure bike, designed for those who hope to ride greater distances and enjoy a good rev around twisty roads. The Multistrada 1260 and 1260 S is a testament to our commitment to bring the best of Italian design, engineering and performance to Indian roads.”
