2018 Ducati Multistrada 1260

Ducati unveiled their new 2018 Ducati Multistrada 1260.

For 2018, we get an even bigger 1,262cc desmo V-twin motor, which ratchets the torques up even more: nearly 20 per cent more foot-poundage at 5,500rpm, with a storming 158bhp peak power output. The capacity increase comes from a longer stroke, hence the same peak power ballpark, with better low-down torque.

I'd love to test drive this baby!


Would you buy one?

Nope, 1,262cc is just too much power for me and my needs. Can't imagine why you'd need something like this for long tour rides, seems like something you'd usually see on track.

Nah, not for me. I have reached "peak motorcycle" - I'm at the point where nothing I want to do with the bike pushes against the limits of what it can do. Having said that, there are a lot of other things that I would rather be doing with the money I won't spend on a much bigger bike, so even if you are happy with the bike you have but you got idle cash sloshing around your accounts, by all means!

Icerock you should get in contact with Ducati since you want to test ride one. Ducati has been know to let just about anyone with a bit of intention to purchase get on their bikes. If you do end up finding an opportunity soon enough let us know.
