Ducati India has just launched the 2018 Multistrada 1260 in the country at Rs 15.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Ducati Multistrada 1260 comes in 3 different colour(s) – Iceberg White, Volcano Grey, Red.

The Multistrada gets a new 1,262cc, liquid-cooled, L-Twin motor. It produces 158hp at 9,500rpm, a 6hp increment over the 2017 Multistrada. Torque, too, has gone up by 1.5Nm, bringing the total up to 129.5Nm, which is delivered at 7,500rpm.

This tech also helps make the engine Euro-IV emission norms compliant.
