Corner carving in many regions has degenerated into an endurance contest, wherein hardened enthusiasts suffer through hours of low bars, high pegs and thin seats in a quest for sportbikedom’s Holy Grail, the apex.
This is why the 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Sport is a revelation. With its broad, high-leverage handlebar and bolt-upright ergonomics, a punchy, superbike-sourced 135-horsepower liquid-cooled V-Twin and 17-inch wheels, the newest Multi is comfortable and fun and fast everywhere—a true horizon-expander.
Icing on the desmo, so to speak, is the Sport’s electronically adjustable Öhlins suspension, traction control and anti-lock brakes. Cool thing is, all those electronic add-ons actually work to your advantage on or off the beaten path. For big-bore, go-anywhere, do-anything versatility, nothing beats the Multistrada 1200 S Sport.
