Commenting on the launch event, Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of 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.
The new Multistrada 1260 now comes with brand new 1262cc Ducati Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) engine. The Euro 4 approved engine offers the highest torque output in its class, maximum torque to 13.2 kgm at 7,500 rpm and maximum output to 158 hp at 9,750 rpm. The DVT system has been recalibrated to maximize low to mid range torque delivery. The power delivery is been made easy by the Ride by Wire technology paired with DQS (Ducati Quick Shift) Up & Down. The updated chassis, with a longer swinging arm and wheelbase and revised geometry up front, makes for sharper handling in curves, and ensures full stability even when riding two-up at full load with the side panniers.
