2013 Ducati Multistrada specs

October 6, 2012 by

The 2013 Multistrada got a lot of little tweaks here and there, but the most important addition to the 2013 Multistrada is the new semi-active Ducati Suspension (DSS), the DSS system uses an electric valve to control the damping of the suspension to give a comfier ride at any of the four riding modes -Sport, Touring, Urban or Enduro- without compromising the sport handling. The system monitors information from accelerometers, throttle, and the ABS to continually adjust the damping rate based on the riding mode.

ABS now comes in three modes to suit the four riding modes -Sport, Touring, Urban or Enduro- so the intervention can be increased or decreased according to the riding mode.

The engine got a 5% increase in torque at the peak of the torque curve, thanks to the repositioned injectors which now spray directly on the hot intake valve. The cylinder head is now Dual Spark −2 spark plugs per head- for a complete burn for a smother operation at low speeds.
