Without fear of getting dirty: the Ducati Multistrasda 1260 Enduro warns of your arrival before the Milan Motor Show
Without fear of getting dirty: the Ducati Multistrasda 1260 Enduro warns of your arrival before the Milan Motor Show

It's hard to keep up with Ducati. During the last years they are subjecting us to an intensive bombardment of novelties that makes it difficult for us to keep up with their range, and the next Milan Motor Show is not going to be an exception.

The Borgo Panigale firm has released a teaser about one of its next models and has made it very clear from the beginning that at Ducati they are still not afraid of going off the asphalt.

The Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro is coming down

From the logo we know that she will not be a member of the Scrambler family, so at least this time we have to rule out the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled 1100. Being a motorcycle of the traditional family and with capacities to get muddy, the equation can be quite clear.

We only have two options: On the one hand, there would be the possibility of Ducati expanding the Multistrada 950 family with the inclusion of a Ducati Multistrada 950 Enduro. Let us remember that the Borgo Panigale average trail is a motorcycle that already incorporates parts from its older sister such as the swingarm or part of the rear area, but it would not be a very attractive product for the brand as it does not stand out for its benefits, technology or justification. commercial.

In second place we find the most reasonable option, which would be the irruption of the new 1260 Testastretta 11º DVT engine premiered in the Ducati Multistrada 1260, but taken to the more adventurous version to create the Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro.

The revision of the propeller has left us with a twin cylinder that raises its displacement to 1,262 cubic centimeters to develop 158 hp and 129.5 Nm of torque, figures that should not be touched in its transplantation to the Enduro version. At the cycle part level, we will continue to expect the best with spoke rims in more country sizes, long-travel suspensions with electronic adjustment and an electronic section full of driving aids.

This bike would be the logical step. The adoption of the new powertrain and some subtle changes to the cycle part and electronics of the model would immediately make it one of the most interesting options in the segment of high-flying trail bikes without fear of getting dirty.

The preceding model has already left us a very good taste in the mouth when we were able to test it in its presentation and now, although it has not been a model with a great commercial history, it continues to enjoy the confidence of the Bolognese brand.

Now, to know the renewal of this model we will not have to wait too long since Ducati will make a presentation against the foot the day October 12 at 11:00 in the morning. Without waiting for EICMA 2018.
