When Ducati unveiled its all-new Multistrada 1200 on stage at the Milan show last year, we were pretty impressed. The ‘normal’ Multistrada is an incredible bike – launched in 2010, then updated for 2015, it has, effectively, a full-blown Superbike engine in a fabulous, high-tech adventure bike chassis – and the performance is outstanding.
But the new-for-2016 Enduro version clicked everything up an extra notch, giving the MTS1200 proper, hardcore, offroad-riding cojones. Ducati hadn’t just given its bike a cosmetic makeover, with new graphics, some aluminium racks and crash bars, and a six-foot seat height. Instead, the Bolognan engineers had give the Multistrada a thorough going-over, aimed at building the ultimate tough adventure touring bike. A new dual-sided swingarm. Aluminium-reinforced bodywork. An enormous 30-litre fuel tank. A 19-inch front wheel. It all adds up to an awesome prospect for adventure bike fans.
And now, Ducati UK is adding on a fantastic £1000 bonus. Buy a new Multistrada Enduro between now and September 30, and the good guys at your local approved dealer will give you a grand to spend on your choice of official Ducati Performance accessories or clothing.
You might fancy bolting on one of the optional Factory accessory packs to your new steed – the Enduro Pack adds crash bars, radiator grill, LED lights, brake disc and a chain guard protector.
Or maybe the Touring Pack, which gives you a pair of sweet Touratech 85 litre panniers, hot grips, and a handlebar bag. Want to add a bit more grunt to the 160bhp V-twin DVT motor? The Sport Pack might be up your alley: you get a tasty Termignoni titanium exhaust, with neat brake and clutch reservoir/master cylinder covers.
Finally, if you spend as much time in the badlands of the city as you do in the outback, the Urban Pack could be the perfect choice. It includes a 38 litre Touratech top case, which keeps your MTS Enduro narrow for cutting through traffic, and it also comes with a compact tankbag and a charger circuit for your high-tech accessories – phone, tablet, GPS.
Of course, you could also use your £1000 bonus on some smart new riding kit for yourself or your pillion. Ducati offers a massive range of top-notch gear, including enduro lids, jackets, trousers boots and gloves, as well as more conventional road-riding equipment. It’s all made to the highest quality standards too, with many items made in partnership with top kit brands, like Arai helmets, TCX boots and Dainese leathers.
Alternatively, you could sharpen up your wardrobe, with a cool item or two from the fabulously cool Ducati casual wear range. The firm’s selection of retro leather jackets, designer shades, or even just a simple T-shirt is second-to-none for style and flair…
