Ducati is aiming the new Multistrada 1200 at the heart of the BMW R1200GS but has given the motorcycle an ultra-modern twist and 150bhp.

The Multistrada is one of the most hotly-anticipated new motorcycle and MCN has been at the forefront of bringing news and pictures of the motorcycle as it has been developed over the past two years.

Our expecatations were already set at a high level over leaked information about the Multistrada but the actual specification list is even better than we dared hope for.
There are two versions of the Multistrada 1200 – a standard version that can be specified with or without ABS and then a higher specification S.

The S can then be ordered in either Sport Edition or Touring Edition. The Sport has carbon fibre parts like engine covers, front air intakes, rear mudguard and spoilers.

The Touring has panniers, heated grips and a centre stand. The S also gets the Ohlins electronically adjustable suspension system.

MCN will be bringing all of the technical details of the new Multistrada 1200 on Wednesday along with inside information about the bike Ducati is pinning so much on being a success.
