The Mercury Cars Guide : November 21st 2009
14--- Classifieds 62 300 400 carsguide.com.au Saturday, November 21, 2009 Ducati heads down the roads to success Ducati's ugly duckling is blossoming into a strikingly handsome swan. Mark Hinchliffe updates us on the glorious transformation Ducati reckons this one truly will be an ''all roads'' machine' Ducati Multistrada STYLISH VERSATILITY: Ducati's Multistrada features four different modes. THE Multistrada (meaning ''all roads'') has often been referred to as the ''uglistrada'', but the Mult- istrada 1200 concept, revealed re- cently at the Milan motorcycle show, is quite stylish. The 1079cc engine has been replaced by the 1198cc racing engine from the world Superbike-winning 1098 with 110.3kW of power and 118.7Nm of torque. But the big news is that Ducati reckons this one truly will be an ''all roads'' machine because it comes with a four- mode switch that can adjust engine power, suspension settings and traction control on the fly. The settings are sport, urban, touring and enduro. In sport riding mode, the suspension is stiffened and full power is available, while intervention by the traction control sys- tem is slightly reduced. In touring mode, full power is still available, but with a different engine mapping to make it more rideable. Suspen- sion is softened and traction control is on full.Touring comfort is also aided by the bike's upright seat position, protective bodywork, optional handguards, heated handgrips, adjustable windscreen, pan- niers, top box and centre stand. Pillion passengers will enjoy the wide seat and grab handles well away from the hot exhaust. In urban mode, the power is limited to 75kW, with maximum traction control. Ducati claims it is suitable for urban riding because of its low centre of gravity, hands-free electrical immobiliser key and extendable front mudguard for wet weath- er. In enduro mode, suspension is higher and softer, the engine is limited to 75kW, and there is the option to turn off ABS and traction control. Its dirt-road capabilities are further enhanced by its light weight, wide handle- bars, high footpegs and engine protection guards. It comes with dual-sport Scorpion tyres suitable for nothing more gnarly than well- formed dirt roads. small torque Ducati Multistrada 1200 ENGINE: L-Twin cylinder, 4 valve per cylinder, Desmodromic, liquid cooled POWER: 110.3kW @ 9250rpm TORQUE: 118.7Nm @ 7500rpm SUSPENSION: Marzocchi 50mm fully adjustable upside-down fork; progress- ive linkage with fully adjustable Sachs monoshock and aluminium single-sided swingarm BRAKES: 320mm semi-floating twin discs with radially mounted Brembo 4-piston, 2-pad callipers (front); 245mm singler disc, 2-piston calliper (rear), ABS FUEL TANK: 20L including reserve DRY WEIGHT: 189kg SEAT HEIGHT: 850mm Motor Cycles ARENA X RACING This Sunday Cambridge Motor Complex, Scrutineering from 7.30.
