The idea of a motorcycle is to travel from point A to point B. The idea of an adventure bike is somewhat similar, but for it to reach from point A to point B, the bike needs to traverse through continents, cross deep rivers, trail across the scorching sand dunes of a desert and also trudge on in sub-zero conditions. Until now, the BMW R1200GS has been everybody's go-to bike for such adventures, but Ducati wants to steal the German’s show and to do that, they developed the Multistrada 1200 Enduro.
We were smitten by the Multistrada 1200 S when we rode it late last year. It did have some limitations when it came to going off-road, but Ducati says with the Enduro, all the rider has to do is focus on the destination. The rest will be taken care of by the Enduro. Big words from a big bike maker. Is that really the case here, though?
