The Italian superbike marque have launched the Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak edition in India at Rs 20.06 lakh (ex-Delhi). The adventure-sport bike is named in honour of Ducati’s success in the famous Pikes Peak hill-climb race that takes place at Colorado, USA, and comes with kit to match the moniker. This includes Öhlins suspension, with fully adjustable front forks and a TTX36 rear monoshock. The bike sheds some weight over the stock Multi through carbon fibre parts and a Ducati Performance Termignoni carbon fibre silencer as well. All this is over and above that 160 PS producing 1200-cc L-Twin and a whole load of technological features including Ducati Traction Control, Cornering ABS, cruise control, and more.
Ravi Avalur, Managing Director, Ducati India shared his thoughts on the launch of the Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak, saying, “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 Pikes Peak is available in a special red and black livery that pays homage to its competition legacy and is available at all five Ducati dealerships across the country.
