This new offering from Ducati is an off-road biased touring motorcycle that is available in a single variant.

Meanwhile, the electronic rider aids comprise six riding modes (Sport, Touring, Urban, Wet, Rally, and Enduro), four power modes (Full, High, Medium, and Low), cruise control, Bosch IMU, engine brake control, traction control, wheelie control, bidirectional quickshifter, and cornering ABS.
