A Change Worth Talking About 2015 Ducati Multistrada 1200

2015 Multistrada 1200

The Ducati Multistrada 1200 was already a great motorcycle, but great isn’t good enough for Ducati. Ducati took not only the Mutlistrada, but the entire industry to a new level. The new 1200 is the first motorcycle to use revolutionary Desmodromic Variable Timing (DVT for short). This advance allows full, smooth power through out the range engaging the drive with complete control. Ducati didn’t stop there, the suspension utilizes the new SkyHook technology for the even more control. also, the 1200S model comes with a full color dashboard display. Ducati set out to combine 4 different motorcycles into one but what they created is the king to rule them all.
