The Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Touring is a motorcycle made by Ducati since 2010 The engine is a retuned version of the Testastretta from the 1198 superbike, now called the Testastretta 11° for its 11° valve overlap (reduced from 41°). All models include throttle by wire, selectable engine mapping (full power with sensitive (Sport) or relaxed throttle response (Touring), and reduced power with relaxed throttle response(Urban and Enduro)) and traction control adjustable through eight levels, called DTC (Ducati Traction Control).
The Multistrada 1200 comes in three equipment levels, the base, the S-Sport and the S-Touring. The S models include ABS (optional on standard model) and electronically adjustable Ohlins suspension, called Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES). The S Sport comes with Carbonfibre beaks/air intake, side- and cambelt covers. The S Touring model comes with heated grips, hard luggage and a center stand.
Over 10,000 units were sold in the first year.
The Multistrada 1200 won the 1205 Division of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in 2010, 2011 and in 2012. In 2012 a Spider Grips Ducati Team Multistrada ridden by Carlin Dunne achieved the first sub 10 minute time for a motorcycle with a time of 9:52.819, only a bit over a second slower than the 2011 overall record.
The bike has four engine power modes, Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro. Riders can change power modes with the motorcycle underway by using the turn-signal cancel button. Sport and Touring modes provide the full 150 bhp with the Touring mode providing a softer throttle response. Urban and Enduro reduce horsepower to 100 bhp and provide different levels of ABS and traction control accordingly. Riders also have the option of customizing any of these modes by changing the horsepower, throttle response, ABS and traction control levels using menu items inside the instrument cluster.
The Ducati Electronic Suspension was developed in conjunction with Öhlins, and was by-product of its MotoGP and World Superbike motorcycle racing experience.
On the S-model Multistradas, with electronic suspension, preload and damping rates change with each of the engine power modes. Riders can also choose between four different base-settings based on having a passenger or luggage. Just like with the engine performance modes, riders can customize each of these settings using menu's inside the instrument cluster. In 2013 Öhlins offer a upgraded SCU (Suspension Control Unit) that allows the passive Öhlins S suspension to become semiactive, using throttleinput, engine speed, horsepower setting and other variables to change settings automatically during riding without rider input. The system is directly derived from Öhlins and Ducatis racing experience, lacking only the GPS sensir input from tha racebikes.
For the 2012 model year the seat was redesigned to allow more rider movement forward and aft. ABS was made standard on all iterations of the bike.
