It makes it possible to maintain the individual valve timing adjusters compact that minimizes their weights and allowing them to be smoothly integrated.

It is an 1198 ccm engine that contains a bore of 106 mm and a stroke of 67.9 mm that delivers 152 hp at 9500 rpm and 128 Nm of torque at 7500 rpm.

The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro is available with a six-speed gearbox that offers superb gear shifting experience. The layout of the new exhaust system is based on two primary manifolds that merge directly in its single 2-chamber silencer., the latter in addition to acting as a 2-1-2 collector features the catalytic converter. The two pipes exit this section and are directed towards the light and compact silencer, which is attached in the high-position, featuring aluminum alloy outer sleeves.

The Ducati Testastretta DVT engine is equipped with two sparks and their ignition is managed independently. One of positioned at the center of the combustion chamber while the other one is located on the outer side. They help in achieve more speed and effective twin flame-front that guarantees a complete and efficient burning of the fuel-air mixture. On the low engine speeds the two plugs work simultaneously, while at the higher engine speeds the plugs are managed independently with effective ignition timing.

The Desmodromic Variable Timing (DVT) contains hydraulically operation camshaft-phasers that manipulate the camshaft position relative to the sprocket connected to the timing belt. They are present on both; intake and exhaust camshaft. The camshaft-phasers are a newly designed two-piece mechanism comprised of outer gear attached to the timing belt. In contrast, the inner rotor is connected to the camshaft that changes the valve timing just manipulating the rotation angle of the camshaft. The engine needs an extended maintenance interval of 15,000 km or 18,000 miles or one year. It is achieved by using the latest equipment, efficient combustion system and newly designed ignition system. So, don’t worry about the bike it will perform perfectly well.
