Ducati India is launching the 2018 Multistrada 1260 and 1260 S in the country today, June 19. The new Ducati Multistrada 1260 had made its premiere at the Ducati World Premiere, just before EICMA 2017 in Milan, Italy. The engine on the 2018 Multistrada 1260 has a larger engine displacement of 1,262cc due to a slightly longer 71.5mm stroke than the current Ducati Multistrada, and it also features Desmodromic Variable Timing (DVT). You can read our first ride review of the 1260 S here. The motorcycles were launched in Europe at a similar price as their predecessor.
The Multistrada 1260 engine's refinement is unprecedented for a Ducati twin-cylinder engine. It's smooth, slick and almost entirely vibration free unless you're roaring along near the redline. Read our Multistrada 1260 launch article here
