Ducati Multistrada 1260, 1260 S launch on June 19, 2018
Ducati is gearing up to launch the Multistrada 1260 and 1260 S in India on June 19, 2018.
Both variants of the Multistrada are based on a new steel trellis frame. The steering angle has been increased by 1 degree and the swingarm length has been increased by 48 mm compared to the Multistrada 1200, but the styling hasn't changed much. The 1260 comes equipped with a telescopic fork suspension at the front and a Sachs monoshock at the rear. The 1260 S additionally gets Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) Evo at the rear.
Powering the Multistrada 1260 and 1260 S is a 1,262 cc, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 156 BHP @ 9,500 rpm and 129.5 Nm of torque @ 7,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox via a hydraulic clutch. Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) is standard on the 1260 S. The 1260 gets twin 320 mm disc brakes at the front with 4-piston calipers and a single 265 mm disc at the rear with a 2-piston caliper. The 1260 S gets twin 330 mm disc brakes at the front and a single 265 mm disc brake at the rear. Bosch Cornering ABS is a part of standard equipment.
Some of the other equipment offered on the Multistrada 1260 and 1260 S includes vehicle hold control (VHC), riding modes, power modes, traction control, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), cruise control and backlit handlebar switches. The 1260 S gets LED headlights with cornering lights and a colour TFT display as well.
