It's almost come to a point where I'm half way on the road to Milan, and already all photos of the new motorcycles have been leaked. Why even bother going? After Aprilia, it's the turn of Ducati. The much hyped and anticipated Ducati Multistrada 1200 motorcycle was to be unveiled on Monday (tomorrow), and so far Ducati had managed to show only small parts of the dual-purpose bike, plus some spy shots.
Now, someone leaked, or someone found, the official photos of the motorcycle, both in the normal and in the "S" version. The 150 hp bike will receive the special Ohlin suspension in the "S" version.
The bike looks much better than the previous version, and if it's lighter, it could be capable of riding down the dirt and mud tracks like its main competitors, the BMW R1200GS.
So here are the official photos of the Ducati. The first photo is that of a 1100 Multistrada, so you can compare between the two models.. Tomorrow evening (CET time) you can see my own photos of the motorcycle.
