I’ve talked about the Ducati Multistrada before. But this one is a bit different. This is the Enduro version. Now, everything in the Enduro is based on the 1200 S version. The 1198 CC V-Twin is on board, cranking out the same 160 Horses of Power pulling the same 87 Foot Pounds of Torques through the same 6 Speed transmission.
The differences come in all the areas making the Multistrada more Off-Road Capable. Now, it was alright off road. As long as that off road wasn’t too off the road. But it was lacking… The Enduro fixes all that.
New on the Enduro is larger spoked wheels, taller ground clearance, a heavy duty bash plate under the engine, and new suspension programming and calibration. There’s also a different seat and handlebars… and a shorter first gear. The changes all add up to make the Enduro almost a completely different bike. The 1200S is a great bike for anything on the road. The Enduro is just a great bike for anything. I put a lot of miles on one this weekend, and that included some off roading… and any shortcomings it had before are all gone.
The Enduro isn’t just a motorcycle like the 1200S is. The Enduro is a full grown, well trained, War Horse.
