The standard Multistrada 1200 features the new Testastretta DVT engine with variable valve timing, Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit, Bosch-Brembo ABS 9.1ME Cornering braking system, cruise control, four Riding Modes, Ride-by-Wire Power Modes (PM), Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), a height-adjustable seat, and an LCD dashboard. As you can see, the standard version is quite far beyond standard. The Multistrada 1200 S features those items, but with larger brake rotors, Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), Sachs Electronic suspension with semi-active Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS), full LED headlights with Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL), and a full-color TFT dashboard. So, when you’re braking with the ABS into a turn at night in the glow of TFT, the DSS adjusts as the LED is complemented by the DCL, and when you twist the PM the DTC comes on before you bang against the DWC, in your chosen PM, as the DVT is modulated by the IMU, for a hearty LOL.
