Ducati launches Multistrada 1260 Enduro in India, priced at 19.99 lakh Ex-showroom

Luxury motorcycle brand Ducati today announced the launch of the all-new Multistrada 1260 Enduro in India at a price of INR 19,99,000 (Ex-Showroom India). The Multistrada 1260 Enduro is a combination of performance and comfort that takes riders beyond boundaries while making travels unforgettable both on-road and off-road. The motorcycle is designed to traverse continents and hence, is equipped with top drawer components to enhance its off road and touring capabilities.

The all new Multistrada 1260 Enduro is equipped with new 1262 cm3 Ducati Testastretta DVT which ensures outstanding pulling power right from the low-to-mid rev range. In fact, 85% of maximum torque is already available below 3,500 rpm with an 17% increase at 5,500 rpm as compared to the torque curve on the engine of the previous model. This makes the Multistrada 1260 Enduro the motorcycle with the highest torque (at 4,000 rpm, the most common rev rate while riding) in its category.

While the new Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro provides impressive performance, power delivery is kept under control thanks to the Riding Modes, the new Ride by Wire function which ensures both smoother throttle control and outstanding safety, and the DQS (Ducati Quick Shift) Up & Down, which significantly improves the ride experience by ensuring precise, fluid upshift and downshift gear meshing.

The Multistrada 1260 Enduro is perfect for long-distance adventure rides, thanks to spoked wheels – 19’’ at the front and 17’’ at the rear. Featuring electronic semi-active Sachs suspension (with 185 mm of travel both front and rear) and a 30-litre fuel tank, the Multistrada 1260 Enduro is, with a range of 450 km (280 miles) and beyond, an unstoppable globetrotter on any terrain.

The new Multistrada is more comfortable and fun to ride in any condition due to the revised ergonomics – seat, handlebar and centre of gravity (all lower than on the 1200 version) and a new suspension setup.

A sophisticated new Human Machine Interface (HMI) is ensured – via a 5’’ TFT colour display, user-friendly switchgear controls and Ducati Multimedia System (DMS). The DMS connects the bike to the rider’s smartphone via Bluetooth, giving access to all key multimedia functions (incoming calls, text messaging, music). It also features cruise control and a hands-free system for easy and comfortable riding.

The Multistrada 1260 Enduro ensures carefree riding even on the longest adventures as it has long maintenance intervals: the oil only needs changing every 15,000 km (9000 miles) while a Desmo Service is required only every 30,000 km (18,000 miles).

The Multistrada 1260 Enduro comes in two colours: Ducati Red & Sand and is priced at INR 19,99,000 and 20,23,000 (Ex-Showroom). Bookings are currently open across all Ducati dealerships in Delhi – NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad.
