Design

The Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour can be easily identified thanks to the harmonious and dynamic design characteristic of the Multistrada family ad to the exclusive Grand Tour livery.

The smart matte Sandstone Grey colour and the tone-on-tone 1260 logo on the side of the bike, combined with the Ducati red frame and details on wheel rims and fairing, are a refined and yet sporty colour match.

Engine

Thanks to the 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) engine and the 4 Riding Modes, the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour is suitable both for daily use and for travelling, as it can also be a faithful companion for long trips when two-ups and with luggage. 

This is possible because 85% of the torque delivered by the Testastretta DVT twin-cylinder engine is already available at 3,500 rpm. The maximum power of 158 hp is available at 9,500 rpm and maximum torque of 13.2 kgm at 7,500 rpm are always easy to manage thanks to the Ride by Wire system ensuring smooth throttle control and to the Riding Modes that turn the Multistrada into four different bikes, depending on the rider's requirements: more sporty, more tourer for long trips, more for commuting or for enduro.

Moreover, thanks to the Ducati Quick Shift up & down (DQS) you can stop thinking about the clutch in mountain roads full of bends, thus simply enjoying your ride as gear shifts will be smooth and accurate no matter if you're shifting up or down.

The Testastretta engine also combines top-class performance with long maintenance intervals: oil changes are scheduled every 15,000 km, while the "Desmo Service" is required every 30,000 km; these distances allow you to enjoy all your travels, even the longest rides, without any worries.

Electronics

The Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour, in terms of electronic equipment, is a benchmark. The IMU inertial platform (Inertial Measurement Unit) provides the ECU precious information concerning bike position and speed in space thereby allowing operation of the ABS Cornering, of the Cornering Lights (DCL) - present in the full LED headlight fitted to the bike - and of the Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC). 

Both DWC and DTC can be customised by the rider through 8 levels or can be disabled. Standard equipment for the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour also includes the Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) and the semi-active suspension control Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evo (DSS).

For carefree travel on the motorway, as on all Multistrada 1260 models, the Grand Tour also features the cruise control that allows the rider to set a cruising speed using the buttons integrated in the switchgear located on the left side of the handlebar. This model also features a standard Bluetooth module that, through the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), allows the rider to connect the motorcycle with his/her smartphone and manage its main functions (answering calls and listening to music) by means of the buttons on the handlebar and displaying the relevant information on the high-resolution 5” colour TFT dashboard, which marks new standards for user-friendliness and easy readout view.

The Multistrada 1260 Grand Tour is equipped with a Hands Free system that not only allows starting the bike, but also opening the tank filler plug without using the key.

 Chassis and ergonomics

Chassis dimensions of the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour, together with the 17" alloy wheels, ensure an efficient and responsive ride in bends and also utmost stability, even when fully loaded and at high speed, with panniers and passenger. 

The ergonomics of the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour was designed to ensure a natural, comfortable and relaxing riding position in case of long trips, both for the rider and for the passenger, and at the same time a riding stance that could be dynamic, active and performing when bends spark your desire for fun.

Accessories

Designed for travelling, the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour is equipped with side panniers, centre stand and special seat bearing the Grand Tour logo as standard. 

To offer utmost comfort also to the most demanding travellers, the Grand Tour is also equipped as standard with heated handgrips, additional LED spotlights, hands free tank filler plug and tyre pressure monitoring sensor, which allows for these parameters to be displayed on the instrument panel.

Furthermore, like for the rest of the Multistrada family, a wide range of accessories is available: touring or sporty ones and other more focused on off-road or urban use.
