The race inspired adventure-tourer, the new Ducati Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak has been launched in India with a price tag of Rs 20.06 lakh.
Just after the 2016 World Ducati Week, the Italian manufacturer has launched its new Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak in India. Priced at Rs 20.06 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the bike is now available across its dealerships in Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Pune and Bengaluru.

However, the ultralight carbon fibre componentry and the Ducati Performance Termignoni carbon fibre silencer helps to enhance the motorcycle's competitive spirit.
The bike comes with lightweight Y-shaped, 3-spoke alloy wheels which come with Pirelli Scorpion Trail II rubber. To handle the braking duties at the front dual 330mm semi-floating discs are available with radially mounted Brembo monobloc Evo M50 4-piston callipers.
