The Ducati Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak was unveiled at the 2016 Pikes Peak Hillclimb event last week. Only 400 of these bikes will ever be built. The limited run bike was made to celebrate the 100th edition of the Pikes Peak hill climb.
Powering the Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak is a 1198.4cc L-Twin, liquid-cooled engine that produces 160bhp and 136Nm of torque. All this power and torque is sent to the rear wheel through a 6-speed gearbox.
