Ducati Multistrada 1200 Review

Ducati is a popular motorcycle company which has launched numerous motorcycles under different nameplates like the Ducati Monster, Ducati Panigale, Ducati Scrambler, etc. The same company in the year 2003, launched the first generation of the Multistrada which was a 992 cc motorcycle. With the passage of time and change in people’s need, Ducati launched the 1200 cc version of the Multistrada. The Ducati Multistrada 1200 cc version, further, is available in three variants; Multistrada 1200, Multistrada 1200 S and Multistrada Enduro.

The Ducati Multistrada 1200 looks similar to the Multistrada 1200 S. Everything starting from the placement of the body-frame, design and placement of dual exhaust system, dual seats looks identical in the Multistrada 1200 and 1200 S. The chassis of both the 1200 and 1200 S is same, and the alloy wheels also look similar. Also, both 1200 and 1200 S possesses length of 2200 mm.

The Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro has been built on same body design as other Multistrada 1200 variant. However, the Enduro version looks much muscular than others. However, the Enduro has been featured single exhaust and also has a unique design. Also, the chassis featured in the Enduro variant looks like off-road type than that of 1200 and 1200 S. Further, the Enduro has been featured with metallic spokes instead of alloy wheels which make it look like a typical off-road motorcycle.

Moreover, Ducati has been exporting the three variants of Multistrada in Nepal under the dealership of Turbo Motors Trading.
