Ducati will launch the Multistrada 1200 Enduro for the Indian market in August this year. The proper adventure-touring variant of the Multistrada with greater off-road capabilities will be then added to the Italian manufacturer's Indian line-up.

The Enduro version is based on the regular Multistradas that cater to the touring segment, while the former is an extreme adventure-tourer motorcycle. It is powered by the same 1,200cc L-Twin motor that churns out 160bhp of power at 9,500rpm and a peak torque of 136Nm at 7,500rpm. The Enduro also boasts of different riding modes similar to the ones on the Multistrada siblings, making sure the rider can select the modes according his need.

Ducati has equipped the new Enduro with a 19-inch tyre in the front, unlike the conventional 17-inch seen on the other siblings. The bike gets tubeless spoked aluminium wheels and knobby off-roader tyres. Other changes for the off-roading needs include a sump guard bolted onto the frame and redesigned beak and mudguard. The bike also comes equipped with a Measurement Unit (IMU) system that helps measure the rate of change in roll, yaw and even lean angles. The rider can adjust the suspension all thanks to the electronic compression and rebound damping adjustment via the Skyhook semi-active suspension.

The Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro sports LED headlamps with cornering function, cornering ABS, traction and wheelie control, ride by wire, cruise control, hill-hold program and many more standard features. The solid-looking aluminum panniers of large capacity can also be opted for by owners for touring needs.

When Ducati will launch the Multistrada 1200 Enduro for the Indian market, it will accompany the Multistrada 1200 and the Multistrada 1200S in the Indian line-up. The adventure motorcycle will be brought via the completely-built-up (CBU) unit through Thailand and might be priced close to Rs 19 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It will then compete with other adventure-tourer motorcycles like the BMW R1200GS and Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer.
