2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200 Riding Impression
Wednesday, March 3, 2010
The underlying theme of Ducati’s 2010 Multistrada 1200 is adaptability. It is by far the most electronically adjustable street bike to ever be produced—and it all actually works!
Hey all, I just got done motoring Ducati’s ’10 Multistrada 1200S. And man, the bike was exactly what I thought it was going to be no more and no less—definitely a good thing. Perhaps the most exciting element of the bike is just how adaptable it is for the conditions of the road and the rider’s preference. If you want it to perform like a full-on sportbike all you need to do is push a couple of buttons and bam, it’s like you’re piloting a Ducati sportbike only your knees, wrists, and butt aren’t in agony. If you’re not feeling the sport vibe, then push another couple of buttons and the bike morphs into a tame, plush riding Cadillac. And that in essence is what the beauty of the new Multistrada. It’s whatever bike you want it to be. This bike is a big step forward for Ducati. It’s mainstream enough for anyone to rider yet it still has some of that wild Italian motorcycling DNA that we’ve always loved. That’s it for now. Look for the full, comprehensive, and long review in the next few days.
