DUCATI'S NEW 11 ENGINE TECHNOLOGY INTRODUCES GROUND-BREAKING SERVICE COST REDUCTIONS
http://www.ducati.com/od/ducatinorthamerica/en/news/img/media31642_0.jpg
Ducati North America is excited to announce a significant milestone in the company's engineering history: 15,000 mile major service intervals on the 2010 Multistrada 1200.

The Multistrada 1200 is the product of Ducati's most intensive development program ever. Entering the arena of adventure touring motorcycles, Ducati set its sights on the class benchmarks. With the goal setting a new class standard, Ducati developed revolutionary new features such as the Multistrada's "4 bikes in 1" adjustability.

The Multistrada 1200's aggressive development process also encompassed build quality and servicing. Ducati is now excited to announce the fruits of its labor: a 15,000 mile period between major services.

Doubling the mileage between valve clearance inspections has been made possible due to the introduction of a new valve seat material. This material enables the new "Testastretta 11" powerplant to go the distance - both literally and figuratively. Incorporating improved combustion efficiency and a new temperature management system, the Testastretta 11 engine ushers in a new era of service and reliability. The engine lowers the cost of maintenance, improves fuel efficiency and reduces emissions - all while retaining exhilarating performance capabilities.

The game-changing Multistrada 1200 will arrive in North American showrooms this coming April.

I could never figure out what was in the mind of the 1200 designer with the front end protrusion, but I figured it out today after carefully examining this picture ...

When I give up on trying to do faster lap times, I could see getting rid of the R and getting one of these. well, actually either one of these. :eek:

This should help as well Kurt. He talks about the air intakes at the very end of the video.

Marty, did Kurt's tongue-in-cheek observations go by you without being absorbed?:rolleyes:

I think so, Marty is too old. Only us young guys think dirty thoughts!

hearing this info really is making me think about the new multi hard! I do have a couple reservations about a couple new things on it but I have a feeling they won't be a problem. The real big question I have is the active suspension and how fast it changes from one setting to the next? Also how the change is made in the suspension?

apparently the air intakes are boobs - does that mean there will be a Ducati Performance bra?

The new service intervals have put the MTS1200 back on my short list of potential replacement bikes...great job Ducati.

Mine too. That's amazing. It makes cost of ownership very attractive to me. Bravo, Ducati, Bravo.
