2012 Ducati Multistrada 1200S Pikes Peak Review and Specifications

2012 Ducati Multistrada 1200S Pikes Peak

Ducati built the Multistrada 1200S Pikes Peak Special Edition in celebration of Greg Tracy’s famous victory in the 2010 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race in Colorado. The Special Edition underlines the race bred heritage that exists deep inside every Ducati and follows a massive success for the award-winning Multistrada 1200.

The model year 2012 Multistrada 1200S Pikes Peak Special Edition is dressed in stunning replica Ducati Corse-style paint scheme with passenger foot-peg hangers and engine guard anodized in black finish and sport red pin-striping on the wheels. In addition to the original equipment silencer and screen the Pikes Peak Special Edition arrives with an EU approved Ducati Performance carbon fiber silencer by Termignoni and a race-derived low screen in carbon fiber. A Ducati Performance carbon fiber front mudguard, and custom made seat detailed with red stitching complete an enhanced specification well worthy of a race-winning replica.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, or “Race to the Clouds”, is situated in a range of the Rocky Mountains, 16km west of Colorado Springs and races 20km from a start line altitude of 2,862 metres to a finish line at 4,300.

Winning the highly challenging and mufti-surface Pikes Peak race, which climbs a mountain track through 1,438 meters of altitude change, further underlined the exceptional all-terrains versatility of the Ducati Multistrada by demonstrating how its four different Riding Modes immediately adapt the motorcycle to any environment.

The 2012 Multistrada family presents everything that has made it Ducati’s award-winning and top selling motorcycle and adds subtle refinements that further underline its quality as a true multitasking motorcycle with genuine, everyday practicality.

Having more than proved its innovative concept and established itself as a new industry benchmark, the Multistrada 1200 family moves into its third year with a confident range that introduces the very latest software updates, an enhanced seat shape, a new “race titanium” colour scheme and the stunning and celebratory Pikes Peak Special Edition.
