This blog entry shows my thoughts on the style of the Ducati Multistrada. Because this includes the touring model, I named it "Ducati Multistrada SERIES" to denote all models of the Ducati Multistrada. I won't mention them specifically here, but this post also pertains to models like the Multistrada 1200S, and Multistrada 1200S Touring.
^ from: motorturn.com (best I could find) - The Ducati Multistrada. The touring version features side cases for storing your helmet.
This is the kind of motorcycle that tries to be an omnipotent and omniscient force. It doesn't have the seductive appeal of a superbike or sportbike (like with the Desmosedici RR), but it isn't really like a dirt bike in looks. The bike comes with two helmet cases to enjoy some touring. Maybe you want to ride from Chicago to Philadelphia on a capable bike. This bike could be your dream bike for that. It is a nice-looking bike whether riding solo or in two-up. It has a nice-sounding engine packing 150 horsepower at 9250 rpm and has 87.5 lb. ft. of torque at 7500 rpm. And as with almost any Ducati, it sure looks sexy in red.
Exterior.The first thing I notice about the Multistrada series is just how much the bike has the look of both a sport bike and a dirt bike at the same time. It has an edgy and stylish appearance. It is the kind of motorcycle that tries to be both a sportbike AND a motard at the same time. It has some very nice-style headlights. The headlights look like a mean set of eyes from a ferocious beast, only that this beast The bike even has a nice tall windshield like you may see on touring bikes. From the sides, you note its motard-style appearance. It has the sporty character of a sportbike while also having some motard-like cues on the sides. It still does its job by nicely seating yourself and a companion. The twin-pipe exhaust is on the sides. The oval exhaust tips look like what you might find on some race cars. The rear details are styled nicely as well with a fierce-looking taillight.
Ready to Ride.The Multistrada has a nice digital instrument panel. It is very sophisticated with a great host of electronic functions and settings for the Multistrada. It is possible on this bike to feel like both a MotoGP rider AND an FIM motocross rider at the same time with the digital instrument panel. A stylish gas cap adorns the front of the bike as you look ahead.
