2009 Ducati Multistrada 1100 and 1100 S

For the 2009 the Multistrada is available in two versions: the impressive Multistrada 1100 finished in red and, for those who demand ‘S’ version sport performance, the Multistrada 1100 S in red, black or in the new pearl white color.

Ducati Multistrada 1100

The Multistrada 1100 widens the horizons of all those who are ‘sport motorcyclists’ at heart but still want a bike they can use seven days a week.  Riding a Multistrada makes every road a thrill.  The punchy 1100 Desmo L-Twin engine with smoother, more tractable power, coupled with a refined chassis, delivers confident handling and optimal comfort, even over long distances.

The unmistakable Ducati Trellis frame combines with a fully-adjustable suspension that allows the rider to adapt the bike for any road condition and every riding style.

Superb road holding, a powerful 1100 engine and all day comfort gives the versatile Multistrada a unique personality and true Ducati character.

Multistrada 1100 Chassis

The renowned Multistrada chassis guarantees exceptional stability at speed, as well as fantastic agility through fast bends. It enables expert riders to find it easy to achieve blistering performance with the 1100.

The Trellis frame is made from high quality steel (ALS 450) for maximum rigidity and precise directional control.

The fully adjustable suspension of the Multistrada 1100 features upside-down 43mm Showa forks adjustable in compression and rebound damping as well as spring preload. The Sachs rear monoshock is equipped with a practical hydraulic remote control to adjust spring preload, which operates through Ducati’s rising rate linkages.

The Multistrada is equipped with an exceptional braking system; two 320mm semi-floating discs at the front wheel with two 4-piston Brembo calipers, while rear stopping power is provided by a single 245mm disc with a Brembo 2-piston caliper.

Multistrada 1100 Engine

The Multistrada is equipped with the renowned Desmodue air-cooled twin-cylinder engine. For this model the Ducati 1100 Dual Spark has a displacement of 1078cc which offers exceptional torque and excellent reliability.

This engine offers a power output of 95hp at 7750rpm and 10,5kgm (76lb-ft) of torque at 4750rpm. Contributing to the bike’s rideability and powerful mid-range, this modern air-cooled engine highlights the sporting character of the Multistrada 1100.
The engine has been designed to comply with Euro 3 standards while boosting performance.

Compact and powerful the1100 Dual Spark Desmo engine is the result of decades of experience and a whole series of innovations that extend from the combustion chambers to the crankshaft.

The Dual Spark ignition on the Multistrada 1100 optimizes combustion temperatures, increases maximum power and torque throughout rpm range, enhances reliability and reduces fuel consumption. These features combine to make the Multistrada Euro 3 compliant.
The 1100 Dual Spark engine also features a ‘wet’ clutch which provides a lighter lever action, is quieter than a dry clutch, and characterised by having exceptional wear-resistance.

Thanks to an excellent compromise between performance, reliability, noise and lever effort, this clutch is ideal for sport riding while ensuring a more progressive action and feel.

Ducati Multistrada 1100 S

Thanks to its world-class suspension and componentry, the “S” version is for riders who demand the ultimate in sports performance. It is based on the Multistrada 1100, but features a number of components derived from the Ducati Superbikes, including fully-adjustable Öhlins suspension and carbon fibre components.

The Multistrada 1100 S highlights the sporting character of a model whose main feature is versatility.

The 1100 S features a number of racing components including a front fender and cam belt covers in carbon fibre, as well as tapered alloy handlebars which are fitted with vibration isolating mounts. The prestigious Öhlins suspension, derived from the Ducati Superbikes, deliver superior road handling as well as an exclusive quality finish.
This top-of-the-range model now features the new livery of pearl white with racing grey frame and engine outer casings with a carbon grey finish.

Multistrada 1100 S Chassis

It is the chassis that has given the Ducati Multistrada its extreme versatility and all-round performance. The Multistrada 1100 S earns its ‘S’ status by adding sophisticated suspension and a sporting set-up to an already high performance motorcycle. It provides true Superbike performance and is capable of lightning-quick cornering and extreme riding precision.

At the front, 43mm Öhlins forks with low friction TiN fork sliders, fully adjustable and complemented by a fully adjustable Öhlins rear shock with remote preload adjuster for Superbike-class road holding.
