Active safety

Raising the bikes' standard of active safety is an absolute priority for Ducati.
Designing light bikes that are easy to handle and have good brakes is the basic prerequisite for achieving this goal.

The devices that technology has made available to us have been very effectively added to this basic prerequisite to raise the active safety bar even higher.

Ducati was a pioneer in terms of adopting the advanced braking systems, first of all the anti-lock brakes system (ABS), which eliminates the risk of the wheels locking in an emergency, and which now is fitted to all the bikes in the Ducati range.

A further drive for riding safety was definitely provided by traction control. In this case, the experience gained by Ducati Corse on the racetrack was made available to all bikers to improve not only performance but above all the safety and controllability of the bike in everyday situations.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC) is fitted to all bike models for 2015, such as, for example, the new Multistrada 1200 - it's incorporated into the riding modes - and the bikes in the Superbike family.

Bosch has fitted the new Ducati Multistrada 1200 and the new 1299 Panigale with the "MSC enhanced" stability control system, through which the bike will be able to control braking and acceleration phases.

This is the first MSC system based on traditional ABS technology, with two separate channels but with the advantage of being economical and compact.

Bosch MSC does not in any way compromise the unique experience of travelling on two wheels. With the new system, rider safety and riding pleasure remain unchanged for the Ducati Multistrada 1200 and the 1299 Panigale too.
