The new engine
has 95 HP (claimed) at 7,750 RPM and 76 ft. lbs. of
torque at 4,750 RPM. Both Multistradas also
feature a wet clutch and the 1100 S features an Öhlins
The Ducati Multistrada 1100 and 1100S introduce a new generation of
sport bikes, capable of excelling on every road you
challenge with amazing sports performance, outstanding
comfort and everyday-use versatility.
Ideal for a day in
the mountains, the daily commute or a weekend tour, the
Multistrada is aggressive like a sport bike when the
road turns twisty, yet smooth and relaxed when scenery
For 2007, the Multistrada features a potent new 1100
Desmo engine with a quieter more robust ‘wet’ clutch,
comfort enhancing vibration-isolated handlebars, and a
new maintenance program that reduces costs by as much as
50% -- the Multistrada’s all-round performance is better
Developed on the winding mountain roads and city
streets of Italy, the Multistrada is a real-world
motorcycle for real-world riders, a dream come true, a
high performance sports bike that doesn’t compromise
comfort, versatility or practicality.
The Multistrada breaks down all the barriers. Its
unique versatility is a matter of design. On mountain
roads its impressive cornering performance comes by way
of Superbike-grade suspension, world-class brakes and
the renowned Ducati Trellis frame.
For long journeys,
the longer travel suspension smoothes the way, vibration
isolated handlebars reduce fatigue and the relaxed
riding position optimizes comfort for both rider and
passenger. In town the agile chassis, wide bars and
broad power of the new 1100 engine make crossing busy
city traffic an adventure to look forward to.
It is this extreme versatility and all-round
performance that prompted US magazine Cycle World to
nominate the Multistrada ‘Best Sport Tourer’.
The Multistrada is available in two versions: The
impressive Multistrada 1100 and, for those who demand
the ultimate in sport performance, an all-conquering ‘S’
version, the Multistrada 1100 S.
The new 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 new
1100 Desmo L-Twin engine delivers smoother, more
tractable power delivery and, coupled with a refined
chassis, delivers confident handling and optimal
comfort, even over long distances.
The unmistakable Ducati Trellis frame combines with
fully-adjustable suspension to adapt the bike to any
road condition and every riding style, while rider
comfort has been further improved with new
Superb road holding, a powerful new 1100 engine and
all day comfort gives the versatile Multistrada a unique
personality and character in true Ducati style.
The 1100 is the latest evolution of the Multistrada
concept, introduced by Ducati at the start of 2003. It
contains all of the innovations that helped to make the
model a true point of reference for a totally new market
The characteristic two-part nose fairing, with a
transparent screen that moves with the handlebars,
allows better than average steering maneuverability. The
unique tank and seat assembly comes from a single
molding and provides a fuel capacity of 20 liters; one
of the innovations on the Multistrada 1100 is the
inclusion of a fuel reserve sensor. The joint action of
the fuel level gauge and the new sensor guarantees a
reliable and constant indication of the amount of fuel
remaining in the tank at all times.
Two display management functions are new features on
the 1100 model: trip fuel and auto ‘light off’ system. The former is an additional trip meter that is activated
when the fuel reserve light is on, while the latter is a
feature that automatically switches off the lights after
60 seconds of key-on if the engine is not running.
Other style features of the Multistrada that remain
unchanged on the 1100 version are the front headlight
cluster, the single-sided aluminium swingarm, the tail
section and the aggressive exhaust unit.
Like the rest of the 2007 range the Multistrada 1100
fully complies with EURO 3 exhaust emissions: the lambda
probe inside the muffler unit combined with a three-way
catalytic converter ensure maximum efficiency. The
function of the lambda probe is to detect the amount of
oxygen present in exhaust gases and gauge the fuel
mixture. In this way the oxygen concentration through
the catalytic converter allows the correct chemical
reaction and the three-way converter oxidizes the
unburnt hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide and reduces the
The renowned Multistrada chassis remains unchanged,
guaranteeing exceptional stability at speed, as well as
fantastic agility through fast bends, thus allowing
expert riders to find it easy to achieve blistering
performance with the 1100.
The round tube Trellis frame is made from high
quality steel (ALS 450) for maximum rigidity and precise
The fully adjustable suspension of the Multistrada
1100 features Marzocchi forks at the front with
upside-down 43 mm stanchions. Adjustments for hydraulic
compression and rebound damping as well as spring
preload are standard.
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 320 mm semi-floating discs at the front
wheel with two 4-piston Brembo calipers, while rear
stopping power is provided by one 245 mm disc with one
Brembo 2-piston caliper.
Starting with Model Year 2007 the entire Multistrada
family benefits from new vibration-isolated handlebars,
which through a pair of silent blocks contained in the
specially-designed steering head increases rider
The Multistrada 1100 receives a boost in cylinder
size thanks to an evolution of the renowned Desmodue
air-cooled twin-cylinder engine. For this model the
Ducati 1100 Dual Spark now has a displacement of 1078
cc, which offers truly powerful torque and extraordinary
The new engine benefits from a bore increase of 4 mm
to 98 mm, vs. the 1000 Dual Spark’s 94 mm. As a result
the cylinder displacement is 1078 cc, a considerable
increase on the 992 cc of the previous version.
This new engine now offers a power output of 95 HP at
7750 rpm and 10,5 Kgm of torque at 4750 rpm. These
superb values contribute to the bike’s rideability and
the powerful mid-range delivery of this modern
air-cooled engine highlights the sporting character of
the new Multistrada 1100.
The engine has been designed to comply with the Euro
3 norms while, at the same time, boosting performance.
Compact, powerful and acknowledged as the ultimate
expression of the Ducati philosophy of air-cooled twin
design, the new 1100 Dual Spark Desmo engine that equips
the Multistrada family represents the result of decades
of experience and a whole series of innovations that
extend from the combustion chambers to the crankshaft.
The end result is a powerful engine that is
particularly exuberant in the mid-range and generally
acknowledged as the most advanced air-cooled L-twin ever
designed. In addition to offering the significant
advantages of an air-cooled power plant, the 1100 DS
also draws inspiration from the advanced Testastretta
racing engine, including the special casting techniques
used to make the cylinder heads, the use of
oil-pressurized plain bearings to support the camshafts,
and the angles and configuration of the valves.
All this, plus the exclusive Dual Spark ignition,
with its "double flame front", offers more complete
combustion, while simultaneously boosting mid-range
power and reducing emission levels.
A closer look at the 1100 DS engine reveals a reduced
angle between the intake and exhaust valves, one of the
basic principles with which the renowned Testastretta
engine was designed, which allows for a more compact
combustion chamber, reducing the volume and thus
obtaining improved combustion. The improved efficiency
of the combustion chamber allows the engine to run on a
leaner air/fuel mixture without compromising performance
at high temperatures and significantly reduces emissions
of hydrocarbons (HC).
The camshafts are supported on oil pressurized plain
bearings, which reduce the overall dimensions, the
weight, and the number of moving parts, while also
improving heat dispersal. The new configuration also
puts the camshafts in a more direct relationship with
the valves, reducing friction and stress on valve
components and thus increasing reliability.
although the cylinder head is more compact, it allows
more space for the intake and exhaust valves, these
being 45 mm and 40 mm in diameter respectively. Further
innovations include valve seats made of beryllium
bronze, a technologically advanced material that affords
better heat dispersal and wear-resistance and thus
maintains valve clearances more accurately over a longer
period of time.
To guarantee high mid-range performance, the
crankshaft, cylinders and pistons have been designed to
obtain a bore and stroke value of 98 mm and 71.5 mm
respectively. The pistons are fitted with nitrided steel
rings, which afford improved sealing and significantly
reduce oil consumption.
The connecting rods are made
from a new material composition (30NiCrMo4) that has
exceptional flow characteristics during forging. In
cross section, the new rods are thinner side-to-side,
but wider fore to aft, increasing strength and lowering
weight for increased reliability and performance.
The crankshaft is of a more compact design and the oil
passages have been strategically repositioned in areas
less critical for its structural strength. The result is
a crankshaft that is more rigid and with less flex,
making for less vibration and improved reliability.
The 1100 Dual Spark engine also features a new ‘wet’
clutch that has lighter lever effort, is quieter and
more modular than a dry clutch and is characterized by
having exceptional wear-resistance.
Thanks to an excellent compromise between performance,
reliability, noise and lever effort, this clutch is
ideal for sports riding and at the same time offers
ensures a more progressive action and feel.
The overall look of the engine is characterized by
injection-molded timing belt covers in black, high
mechanical and thermal resistance plastic. The engine
covers are in a new dark grey color.
Starting with the entire 2007 range Ducati has
introduced a new maintenance program in which
servicing intervals have been extended, and less parts
are required and fewer operations are performed, thus
reducing the bike’s overall running costs by up to 50%.
Multistrada 1100 S
Due to its world-class suspension and componentry
level, this version is for those 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 fiber
The Multistrada 1100S is to all intents and purposes
a production special, a bike that is capable of
highlighting the sporting characteristics of a model
whose winning feature is its versatility.
The 1100 features a number of racing components
including a front mudguard and cam belt covers in carbon
fiber, as well as exclusive variable-section alloy
handlebars, which from this year are fitted with
vibration isolator mounts. The prestigious Öhlins
