2012 Ducati Multistrada 1200S Pikes Peak Special Edition unveiled

The Multistrada 1200S Pikes Peak SE looks fabulous!

Ducati have unveiled the Multistrada 1200S Pikes Peak Special Edition, in celebration of Greg Tracy’s victory in the 2010 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado, in the US. ‘The special edition underlines the race-bred heritage that exists deep inside every Ducati and follows a massive first year success for the award-winning Multistrada 1200, which set a new industry benchmark in motorcycle technology,’ says the press release from Ducati. Marketing hyperbole notwithstanding, we do think the bike looks pretty hot!

The Multistrada 1200S Pikes Peak SE gets a Ducati Corse-style paint scheme, an EU-approved Ducati Performance carbonfibre silencer from Termignoni, a race-derived carbonfibre low-screen, carbonfibre front mudguard and custom-made seat detailed with red stitching. The bike will be available from May this year and will be priced at £16,750 (US$27,000).
