New TFT instrument panel
The new Multistrada 1260 is equipped with a high visibility LCD instrument panel with a new information display and simplified menu management. To make navigation simpler, the left block now features new icons with information on the type of ""click” required: the empty ball corresponds to a simple push of the button; the full ball corresponds to a prolonged pressure on the button.
The navigation enhancements include a comprehensibly redesigned interface on the new 5'' TFT instrument panel on the new Multilevel 1260 S and D | Air. The new TFT has increased resolution (186.59 PPI - 800xRGBx480), readability in sunlight and graphics that now make menu navigation and settings access much easier and instant identification of the selected Riding Mode, as it is assigned to a colour: red for Riding More Sport, white for Touring Mode (Night mode) or Black (Day mode), grey for Urban Mode and brown for Enduro Mode.
The LCD or TFT units provide information on speed, engine rpm, gears, odometer, trip1 and trip2, engine coolant temperature, fuel level, and clock. The set Riding Mode is also displayed, along with residual autonomy, instantaneous consumption, average consumption, average speed, air temperature, travel time, and icy terrain alarm.
In static conditions, the rider can use the left-hand block on the handlebar to access a ""setting"" menu to activate and adjust various functions, including customised DTCs and DWCs, and three levels of ABS Cornering intervention. In the S versions, the suspensions can be adjusted using a dedicated menu. In both static and dynamic conditions, the rider can switch Riding Mode by choosing from Sport, Touring, Urban or Enduro and load the settings depending on the various riding configurations: single rider, rider with panniers, rider with pillion rider and rider with pillion rider and panniers.
In the S version, the headlight is a full LED equipped with the Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL) function that optimises illumination of the road when riding around a bend based on the leaning angle of the bike. The Multistrada models also feature the 4 hazard indicator function, activated by pressing the dedicated button. Another new element on the Multistrada 1260 is the automatic switch-off of indicators based on the leaning angle of the bike. Thanks to the use of the Inertial Platform, the indicators will switch off after completing the turn or after a prolonged distance (varying between 200 and 2000 meters depending on the speed of the vehicle at the time the indicator button is pressed).
The music media player interface on the TFT instrument panel has also been improved when connected to a mobile phone. In addition, the Enduro Riding Mode trip master has been updated and can now be paused, reduced and activated more quickly.
