Ducati Multistrada 1200




Nothing significant came out of the Ducati exhibit at this year’s Intermot show and the company only had  new color options for its 2013 range on display. The recently unveiled Ducati Multistrada 1200 took centre-stage while standing alongside were other models from Ducati like the Diavel, the 848 Superbike and of course their flagship offering, the Panigale 1199. For 2013, most of the Ducati line-up gets new colour schemes while the only model updates worth mentioning are on the Multistrada 1200. Apart from a design revamp and more colour options, the 2013 Multistrada gets second generation Testastretta 11° engine and all-new three level ABS while the elite “S” variants features the innovative semi-active suspension system - Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS).


There is also a new touring flagship model in the range for 2013, the Multistrada 1200 S Granturismo which will be further loaded with equipment and extras like increased side luggage capacity, top case, added LED illumination, enhanced wind protection as well as specially configured tyres for long distance riding. Other technologies that are already found on the current generation Multistrada, like Ride-by-Wire, the electronic riding modes, eight-level Ducati Traction Control (DTC), will be carried forward to the next year’s model.




Ducati Diavel




Amongst the other models, the Ducati Diavel gets a charming new red and blue colour options complete with white stripes and white-painted wheels as well as a matte-black paint scheme for the stealth lovers. The Monster series celebrates its 20th year anniversary and gets a very bling-looking golden frame and red paint for 2013. While the flagship, the Panigale 1199 is now available in all-white paint scheme and boy does it look hot and how! Although our favourite amongst Ducati’s 2013 line-up is the Ducati 848 Evo Corse in its special edition Ducati Corse’s two-tone Test Team livery in black and grey. And the already quick and spunky 848 now gets a new lightweight aluminium fuel tank for next year. Lighter, faster and sexier!
