Mul­ti­strada 1260

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Don’t be fooled by the 2018 Mul­ti­strada look­ing so fa­mil­iar – the fam­ily has been treated to some sig­nif­i­cant changes. There’s a new en­gine, now a 1262cc ver­sion of the DVT V-twin, with 85% of its torque on tap at 3500rpm. There’s a new ride-by-wire sys­tem for smoother throt­tle re­sponse, and an im­proved bi- di­rec­tional quick­shifter. The chas­sis also boasts im­prove­ments, with a longer swingarm and wheel­base, and re­vised ge­om­e­try to im­prove sta­bil­ity. There’s a new Blue­tooth linked app, too - de­liv­er­ing a huge ar­ray of in­for­ma­tion di­rect to your phone.
