In fact, 85% of the torque is already available below 3,500 rpm with a 17% increase in the curve at 5,500 rpm compared to the previous 1198 cm³ displacement model. This makes the Multistrada 1260 Enduro the motorcycle with the highest torque value in its category, an exceptional 4,000 rpm, i.e. the rpm rate used when riding.
To reach this new displacement level, the piston stroke was increased from 67.9 to 71.5 mm, while the bore remains 106 mm. To change this measurement new connecting rods, a new crankshaft and new cylinders were used. The DVT system was then recalibrated to maximise mid to low range engine torque delivery, leading to a maximum power of 158 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 13 kgm at 7,500 rpm.
