Ducati India has announced the availability of the Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak across its five dealerships in the country—Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore. The Pikes Peak version brings out the sports character of the Multistrada 1200 S, drawing its inspiration from the Italian company’s past victory in the legendary Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado, which is one of the most challenging hill-climb races in the world.
The Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak boasts of high-performance specifications including a fully adjustable Ohlins fork and premium quality TTX36 rear shock. Ultralight carbon fibre componentry and the Ducati Performance Termignoni carbon fibre silencer enhance the motorcycle’s competitive spirit.
Ravi Avalur, MD, Ducati India, said, “The Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak is a motorcycle in which touring capability meets performance. With its race-inspired looks and cutting-edge technology, the Pikes Peak is in a league of its own and we’re sure enthusiasts will appreciate this version of the Multistrada.”
The motorcycle is powered by the Testastretta twin-cylinder engine, which, among other things, is equipped with cornering ABS, cornering Lights on the full-LED headlight, wheelie control, traction control and cruise control. The company claims the Bluetooth module together with Ducati’s multimedia system lets riders connect the bike to a smartphone and manage key multimedia functions via the switchgears and displays information on the colour TFT dashboard.
The Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak is available in a white, red and black livery with a Ducati red chassis; it is priced Rs 20.06 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
