2010 Multistrada 1200 has more torque than an 1198 below 6500rpm

Published: 02 March 2010

This recently released dyno chart shows how the retuned Testastretta engine in the Ducati Multistrada has been reworked to give more mid-range power and a flatter torque curve.

This means the Multistrada’s engine will require less revving and fewer gear changes during normal road-riding than the 1198, while still producing more power at 6500rpm than a BMW R1200GS makes at maximum output.
