The two-cylinder V-engine now develops 158 hp (116 kW) at 9,500 rpm, while the maximum torque of 130 Nm is available at 7,500 rpm.

If you want your Bolognese travel enduro in white or gray, you have to go for the next higher equipment variant: Ducati Multistrada 1260 S. This also has TFT instead of LCD technology in the cockpit with simplified menu navigation and Bluetooth interface.

The base will cost around 17,000 euros, and experience has shown that the S version is around 2,000 euros higher.
