There is so much fun that can be had on two wheels. there is a sense of freedom and adventure when you’re on a motorcycle that just isn’t there when you are in a car. Few brands represent this better than Ducati. In the Ducati brand, this is best embodied by the Multistrada. The bike is built for adventure, and made to go with you wherever you might want to go.

The latest iteration of the Multistrada features updated aesthetics, a new granturismo model and the Ducati Skyhook Suspension that keeps the bike flat, even in fast acceleration and braking. The bike also features updates over last year’s model that give it better low-speed performance, improved lighting and customizable settings that change the bike’s performance and make it better suited to tackle different road conditions.

The 1200-cc, 150-HP powerplant gives riders plenty of power on tap. Whether it’s tearing up asphalt or tackling unpaved mountain singletrack, the Multistrada has all the performance you need.
