Ducati’s electronic suspension helps create the first four-in-one motorcycle
Many of today’s motorcycles use an electronically controlled suspension to make adjustments that used to require busting out the tool kit. Yet most of these systems can handle only minor modifications, such as softening the suspension to accommodate an extra rider. Ducati’s electronic suspension system on the 2010 Multistrada 1200 S is the first that transforms the bike’s entire personality. A button toggles among four customizable settings—Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro—that determine ride height, traction-control setting, throttle map, and horsepower setting (either 100 or 150).
