Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike – Features and Price

Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike

Unique and Elegant design

With its clean surfaces, taut lines, and contrasting front and rear visual mass, the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike maintains the family’s defining characteristics while raising the bar on quality and finish. This bike’s new side panels give it a cleaner, more modern appearance. Ducati’s attention to detail can be seen in some places, including the frame, which strikes the perfect balance between weight and performance, the rear aluminum subframe with integrated luggage mounts, and the ergonomic, practical switchgear. Like the new aluminum-insert key and the new instrument panel.

It’s hard to look at a Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike without noticing the five-spoke wheels. Everything about the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike has been thought out with the user in mind. Just like the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1200 Enduro’s rear grab handle, which can now accommodate the aluminum Touratech Side Panniers as an alternative to the plastic Panniers offered by Touratech (both optional).

Designers redesigned the under-seat profiles for seat height adjustment due to their obsessive attention to detail. They’ve been shrunk to blend in better with the background. Finally, the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike comes equipped with LED turn indicators and a redesigned number plate holder.

The new TFT instrument panel

The LCD instrument panel on the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike has been redesigned with a more intuitive information arrangement and menu system. New icons for the left switchgear simplify menu access: an empty dot indicates that only a short press of the button is required, while a solid dot indicates that the rider must press the button for a more extended period.

The new 5″ TFT instrument panel on the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike 1200 S and D|Air has a completely redesigned UI. Higher resolution (now 186.59 PPI – 800xRGBx480) and better readability in the sun are all advantages of the new TFT panel, which also offers a better graphic laridert for menu navigation and user-friendly settings. There are also distinct Riding Modes, such as Sport, Touring, Urban, and Enduro, assigned different colors to make them easier to recognize.

Speed, rpm, selected gear, total mileage, trip 1 and 2, engine coolant temperature, fuel gauge, and a clock are all displayed on the LCD and TFT. The selected Riding Mode, remaining range, current fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, average speed, air temperature, travel time, and an icy road surface warning are the other information displayed.

To enable and adjust various functions such as DTC and DWC personalization and the 3-level Cornering ABS function, the left handlebar switchgear can be used at a standstill. The suspension settings option on the S version allows the rider to make more adjustments. The Riding Mode (Sport, Touring, Urban, or Enduro) and load settings can also be selected at a stop or while driving to match the current riding configuration: a single rider, a rider with luggage, a single rider with a passenger, or a single rider with both a passenger and luggage.

Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL) activates curves to give the best illumination of the road surface based on the lean angle. The full LED headlight on the S version is equipped with DCL functionality. Hazard lights are also available on the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike models, and they can be turned on and off with just a push of a button. a first-time user

Turn indicators activated by lean angle use Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike, which has an auto-cancel function. The turn indicators self-destruct due to the Inertial Platform after a turn or after a specified distance has been covered (from 200 to 2,000 meters depending on riding speed when the indicator button was pressed).

When a smartphone is connected to the TFT dashboard, the music media player is upgraded. Additionally, the Enduro Riding Mode’s updated trip master now can stop, show remaining distance, and activate more rapidly.

Ignition That Doesn’t Require Rider Hands

The Hands-Free technology, which increases security, makes it possible to start the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike without using a mechanical key. Even if the electronic key is never taken out of the rider’s pocket, the system will scan the key’s code within a 2-meter radius of the bike. When the rider presses the “on” button, the bike is powered up, the display is on, and the engine may start. To remove the seat and filler cap, the electronic key has a mechanical “flip” key. A steering lock with an electronic actuator is also available.

Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262

To maximize power at high rpm, the DVT engine (Desmodromic Variable Timing) optimizes high-rpm performance separately by changing the timing on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. Instead, it smooths operation at low-to-medium rpm, improving power delivery and increasing torque. In reality, this is a Euro 4-compliant engine with excellent fuel efficiency that continuously alters its characteristics as the rpm changes – undetected by the rider.

The Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike engine’s increased displacement to 1262 cc raises the bar on both rideability and performance. Due to the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike’s strong torque output in the low-to-mid-range of RPM, Ducati engineers created this new engine from the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike’s powertrain. Delivery at 5,500 rpm is 18% higher than the previous model thanks to torque available under 3,500 rpm, which accounts for 85% of the available torque. To put it another way, the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike has the highest torque output in its class when running at the most common rpm range of 4,000 revolutions per minute (rpm).

Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike

To increase the displacement, the piston stroke was increased from 67.9mm to 71.5mm (the bore remains 106 mm). New connecting rods, a crankshaft, and cylinders were needed as a result. 158 horsepower at 9,750 rpm and 13.2 kgm of torque at 7,500 rpm are the maximum output and torque, respectively, of the DVT system, which was re-calibrated to maximize low-to-mid range torque delivery.

To achieve this level of performance, engineers redesigned the engine’s exhaust and intake systems. In addition to the modified exhaust pipe and silencer arrangement, the vehicle got a new silencer and pre silencer. The air intake mouth was redesigned at the intake end.

On the metal backing of the new belt covers, the DVT logo is embossed. A key component of DQS Up and Down, the Ducati 2019 Multistrada 1260S Bike engine’s generator cover has been completely rebuilt to incorporate the new, more advanced gear sensor. A shorter stroke has been added to the gear lever linkage for improved engagement accuracy and the new “Mercury Grey” color has been applied to the generator and clutch covers. Integrated clutch slave cylinders are another unique element. They’re smaller and easier to install.

Each Riding Mode’s torque delivery varies depending on the chosen gear thanks to extensive revisions to the engine tuneup focused on rideability. Because it makes riding more manageable, the engine brake control now reacts differently depending on gear position. The cruise control has also been re-adjusted for maximum comfort.

Desmo delight

The Testastretta DVT engine, as anticipated, makes use of Ducati’s Bologna-built motorcycles’ Desmodromic valve actuation technology. This unique system mechanically closes the intake and exhaust valves with the same level of precision with which it opens them. When riders hear the phrase desmodromic, the rider’s thinking about mechanisms that have one control to activate them in one way, as an opening, and another for when they’re closed (closure or return), all Ducati models utilize this technology, which has shown to be reliable on Ducati Corse Superbikes and MotoGP motorcycles.

Because there are no springs to compress in the Testastretta DVT engine’s Desmodromic valve actuation, it requires less force to operate at low revs. By doing this, the individual valve timing adjusters can be kept small and light, allowing for easy integration.
