2008 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 highlights.
The Multistrada 1100 S is, for all intensive purposes, a production special. A bike that is capable of highlighting the sporting characteristics of a model whose main feature is versatility.
The 1100 S 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 are fitted with vibration isolating mounts. The prestigious Öhlins suspension, derived from the Ducati Superbikes, brings clear benefits in terms of superior road handling as well as an exclusive quality finish.
The chassis is the same one 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, adjustable in hydraulic compression, are complemented by a fully adjustable Öhlins rear shock with remote preload adjuster for Superbike-class road holding.
