Ducati Multistrada Pikes Peak

By Kevin Ash - 15/01/2012

Ducati is commemorating its 2010 Multistrada victory in the Colorado Pikes Peak hill climb with a special edition.

The Multistrada 1200S Pikes Peak Special Edition is based on the Multistrada S Sport with a selection of extras, including a unique Ducati Corse style paint scheme with red wheel pinstripes, carbon fibre front mudguard, red seat stitching, black anodised rear footrest hangers and engine guard. Although the bike is fitted with a standard silencer it also comes with a carbon fibre Termignoni silencer and low screen.
