2013 Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Granturismo, $1500 IN STORE CREDITCONTACT BRADFOR MORE DETAILS(310)220-2223 (ASK FOR BRAD)BRAINES@DELAMOMOTORSPORTS.COM 2013 Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Granturismo Ready to ride the world The S Granturismo embodies the touring spirit of the new Multistrada to perfection. 73-litre panniers, top case and Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) have been combined with even more touring-oriented ergonomics to engine protection bars, to provide an optimal set-up whatever the riding conditions. The goal: to tour the world. Features: Testastretta 11 DS The Testastretta 11 engine was introduced on the Multistrada 1200 in 2010. Derived from the Superbike 1198 engine, it achieved brilliant results when valve overlap was reduced from 41 (typical of sport engines) to 11 , losing some peak power in favour of improved overall smoothness, especially in the mid-range. The new Multistrada family introduces the second generation of Testastretta 11 DS engines with several new features that make it even smoother and more tractable. Dual Spark ignition (DS) uses two plugs per cylinder to ensure complete combustion in very short time. The fuel injectors have been relocated to aim the jet of fuel directly at the hotter rear end of the suction valve, so that all fuel is atomised. A secondary air system similar to that of the 1199 Panigale has been introduced to optimise operation and reduce cyclic combustion variability without affecting emissions. A controlled flow of fresh air is supplied to the exhaust duct to enable complete oxidisation of hot unburnt gases, to effectively reduce hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide levels. With 150 hp power, 12.7 Kgm (124.5 Nm) torque and 10% less consumption (at 90 kph), the Testastretta 11 DS engine sets a new benchmark for Ducati twin-cylinder engines. Crankcase - Vacural technology Weight reduction is a priority consideration also in the design of the new second-generation Testastretta 11 DS engine. Crankcases are vacuum-die-cast using the Vacural technology, ensuring maximum weight reduction, homogeneous wall thickness, and increased mechanical strength. Sachs active control suspension The current Multistrada 1200 'S' versions are equipped with 48-mm front fork and Sachs rear monoshock, both integrated with the Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) system. In addition to providing compression and rebound damping and rear suspension spring preload adjustment - either automatic adjustment integrated with the Riding Modes or customised through the on-board computer - the system is characterised by semi-active suspension adjusted continually to ensure perfect vehicle balance, so that the bike seems to run off the ground, gliding in the air. Suspension travel is longer (170 mm front and rear) than is typical for road bikes. This makes for a comfort ride even when carrying a full load and allows to tackle off-road t

Milan Show: Cute little Ducati

Tue, 02 Nov 2010 00:00:00 -0700

Amongst the grand new models at the Milan show is this adorable Ducati Cucciolo, or as translated, Ducati Little Puppy. The Little Puppy was born out of a project for a small 48cc pushrod clip-on engine to be added to bicycles. The name Cucciolo is derived from the yapping note from the stubby exhaust.

MotoGP Teams Complete First Sepang Pre-Season Test

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 00:00:00 -0800

Preparations for the 2014 MotoGP Championship are well underway, with the first pre-season test at Malaysia’s Sepang circuit complete. As the first test of the year, we shouldn’t take too much stock into the results, but they do provide a basis for later comparison. Reigning World Champion Marc Marquez was the fastest rider on all three days of the Sepang test.

With the absence of Marc Marquez from the second Sepang MotoGP test, due to a broken leg suffered in a training accident, another Honda rider took his place at the top of the time sheets, though it’s not who you might think. Alvaro Bautista on the Gresini Honda set the fastest time at the end of the first day with a 2:00.848. The time is 1.3 second slower than the fastest time Marquez set at the last Sepang test.
