Ducati Multistrada Enduro Pro, the family grows big

Ducati has presented the new Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro, for all those travellers who love the adventure beyond the boundaries of the asphalt.
Direct evolution of the well-known Multistrada Enduro, the Pro, besides preserving the peculiarity, has more particulars which highlight its offroad use.
The Euro 4 engine is the esteemed Ducati Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing), which uses the technology of the four Riding Mode, the system which allows to vary the engine's balance and reaction depending on the chosen function (Enduro - Touring - Sport - Urban). Borgo Panigale's motorcycle presents the most evolved technology that guarantees its exciting performance and th active safety with the functioning device systems which complete the ABS Cornering, the Ducati Traction Control DTC, the sophisticated Ducati Wheelie Control DWC, the semi-active suspensions Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evolution DSS which assures a 200 mm stroke to the wheels, and the assistance system for hill starts of the Vehicle Hold Control VHC.

Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro's standard equipment also offers the electronic control of the speed and the Bluetooth, which by means of the Ducati Multimedia System allows the connection between motorcycle and smartphone to manage the most important multimedia functions with buttons on the handlebars and the visualisation on the TFT dashboard.
This Pro model is easily recognizable for the innovative Sand coloring, rough to the touch, which covers the front and the tank cover, and for the "Enduro" stickers on both its sides. Of the Enduro Pro is also the two-tone saddle, the covers for friction carter, and black alternator like the posterior chassis.
The Titanium exhaust pipe is the Ducati Performance by Termignoni homologated for the use on the road, which exalts the characteristics of this version, just like the lateral protections of the tank made of steel tubes by Touratech, with additional LED lights. To facilitate the standing driving on the platforms, specially offroad, it presents a low plexiglass. After a survey to know which are the best tires to go both on the asphalt and offroad, Pirelli Scorpion Rally, sizes 120/70 R19 for the front one and 170/60 R17 for the posterior, have been chosen.
 

 

The motorcycle is available at Ducati's sales network to the price of 22.900 Euros.
