This spring Canadians will be able to purchase the Ducati Multistrada 1200—voted best in show last week at EICMA—for $17,495. This is “an extremely aggressive figure,” for a 150hp dual sport machine with keyless ignition and ride by wire throttle mapping, says the manufacturer.
Adding ABS costs a thousand dollars more, while both “S” models, either sport or touring, bring the bike’s total sticker price to $20,995. For that you’ll get ABS, traction control, and electronically adjustable Ohlins suspension. Carbon fibre trimmings distinguish the sport model, while the touring setup opts for luggage, heated grips and a centre stand.
