Ducati’s Big-Twin Sports Tourer: The Multistrada 1260 Enduro

The Multistrada 1260 Enduro is another rollover model from Italian manufacturer Ducati. While it receives no updates, it’s still an important part of the 2021 Ducati line-up. For North America at least. The introduction of the new V4 Granturismo engine and new emissions rules in Europe has meant that the Multistrada has evolved in a new direction. However, for 2021, the big-twin version of this sports tourer is still available.

Like most last-generation Ducati motorcycles, the Multistrada 1260 Enduro is powered by a 1,262cc Testastretta DVT L-twin cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower and 94 lb-ft of peak torque. Since there has been no update, it’s very much the same motorcycle as it was in 2020, complete with the same hardware and electronics.

It might be an outgoing model, but it still boasts top-of-the-line features, making it a great sports-touring choice for road-based adventures. Notable features include semi-active Ducati Skyhook Suspension, multiple riding modes, selectable power modes, traction control, wheelie control, cruise control, and more.

For 2021, the Multistrada V4 1260 Enduro is available in two color options: Sand gold, or classic Ducati Red.

The 2021 Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro starts at $22,095 USD / $24,695 CAD.
