The 2010 Ducati Multistrada will come in four different variations, ranging from $14,995 to $19,995.

Ducati’s new Multistrada, unveiled at the EICMA Milan Bike Show, now comes with a price. Ducati announced a $14,995 MSRP for the base model of its adventure-touring platform, with delivery of the Multistrada 1200 to the US slated for Spring of 2010. The 15K pricetag applies to the base model, but there will be three accessory packages available to upgrade the Ducati:

Ducati Multistrada 1200 – $14,995
The base unit features its upgraded L-Twin motor, which produces a claimed 150 hp and 87.5 lb-ft torque. Front fork is an inverted 50mm Marzocchi unit, rear shock Sachs – with both units fully adjustable. Braking is radial-mount Brembo calipers. The base model claims 417 lb weight.

Ducati Multstrada 1200 ABS – $16,495
An ABS system cost tacks $1500 onto the base 1200’s MSRP. It is a Bosch-Brembo system and Ducati promises it “will reinforce the brand’s reputation for world-class stopping power.”

Ducati Multistrada 1200s Sport – $19,995
Ducatisti are accustomed to the Bologna firm creating an up-spec “S” model, which features higher performance suspension. The new Multistrada is no exception. Fully-adjustable Ohlins fork and shock replace the stock units. The extra 5K for the “Sport” includes carbon fiber air intakes and other parts, as well as the Bosch-Brembo ABS system.

Ducati Multistrada 1200s Touring – $19,995
The “s Touring” Multistrada includes the Ohlins suspenders and ABS standard. But where the “Sport” opts for carbon fiber goodies, the Touring comes with integrated luggage, heated grips and a centerstand.
