Travel without sacrificing anything! The new Multistrada S Grand Tour truly maximises the concept of premium sport touring. The design, performance and comfort of this magnificent machine are combined with rich equipment and exclusive livery. It comes with side panniers, a centre stand, heated grips, additional LED lights, a hands-free tank filler plug and tyre pressure monitoring system - which all come as standard equipment with this bike.
The Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour can be easily identified thanks to the harmonious and dynamic design characteristic of the Multistrada family ad to the exclusive Grand Tour livery.
The smart matte Sandstone Grey colour and the tone-on-tone 1260 logo on the side of the bike, combined with the Ducati red frame and details on wheel rims and fairing, are a refined and yet sporty colour match.
Thanks to the 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) engine and the 4 Riding Modes, the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour is suitable both for daily use and for travelling, as it can also be a faithful companion for long trips when two-ups and with luggage.
This is possible because 85% of the torque delivered by the Testastretta DVT twin-cylinder engine is already available at 3,500 rpm. The maximum power of 158 hp is available at 9,500 rpm and maximum torque of 13.2 kgm at 7,500 rpm are always easy to manage thanks to the Ride by Wire system ensuring smooth throttle control and to the Riding Modes that turn the Multistrada into four different bikes, depending on the rider's requirements: more sporty, more tourer for long trips, more for commuting or for enduro.
The Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour, in terms of electronic equipment, is a benchmark. The IMU inertial platform (Inertial Measurement Unit) provides the ECU precious information concerning bike position and speed in space thereby allowing operation of the ABS Cornering, of the Cornering Lights (DCL) - present in the full LED headlight fitted to the bike - and of the Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC).
Both DWC and DTC can be customised by the rider through 8 levels or can be disabled. Standard equipment for the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour also includes the Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) and the semi-active suspension control Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evo (DSS).
Chassis dimensions of the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour, together with the 17" alloy wheels, ensure an efficient and responsive ride in bends and also utmost stability, even when fully loaded and at high speed, with panniers and passenger.
The ergonomics of the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour was designed to ensure a natural, comfortable and relaxing riding position in case of long trips, both for the rider and for the passenger, and at the same time a riding stance that could be dynamic, active and performing when bends spark your desire for fun.
Designed for travelling, the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour is equipped with side panniers, centre stand and special seat bearing the Grand Tour logo as standard.
To offer utmost comfort also to the most demanding travellers, the Grand Tour is also equipped as standard with heated handgrips, additional LED spotlights, hands free tank filler plug and tyre pressure monitoring sensor, which allows for these parameters to be displayed on the instrument panel.
