The 2014 Ducati Multistrada S Pikes Peak has a really strong engine, but lacks the low down torquey pull of some other adventure bikes.

From the mid-range onward, the Ducati is fast, it pulls extremely hard and wants to keep going.

As we headed into the canyons the engine really came alive. Off the bottom it lacks excitement, but as soon as the bike pulls into the mid-range, the meat of the power, it’s a total rocket ship.

Once you get the Ducati to lean it holds its line in the corner well. It was important to ride smooth and plan well ahead; deciding mid corner that you want to change direction is not something that is in the Ducati’s vocabulary.

The Bosch 9ME ABS and Brembo brakes on the 2014 Ducati Multistrada S Pikes Peak are a solid combination, with the adjustable sensitivity ABS and strong power allowing you to set the bike up completely to your own riding requirements.

The engine makes it extremely fun to ride, it does require more gear shifting than other bikes of this class and the power has a real sweet spot, but you will be rewarded with a huge smile.

Ducati needs to work on the feeling of the controls, as neither clutch nor the front brake feel great. They have a spongy, unrelated feeling. And the bike would be even better if it had a little more front end handling feel.

All up, however, the 2014 Ducati Multistrada S Pikes Peak is a great bike. It’s fun to ride and definitely lets you go fast.
