Ducati unveils the Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak in celebration of the famous victory in the 2010 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race in Colorado.


This 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 with the four-bikes-in-one concept. The Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak is specially dressed in stunning Ducati Corse-style paint scheme with red trellis frame, passenger foot-peg hangers and engine guard anodised in black finish and sport red pin-striping on the wheels. In addition to the original equipment silencer and screen the Pikes Peak Special Edition arrives with a race-derived low screen in carbon fibre. A Ducati Performance carbon fibre front mudguard, and custom made seat detailed with red stitching complete an enhanced specification well worthy of a race-winning replica. Each Pikes Peak Special Edition Multistrada in North America will come with a numbered badge on the engine crankcase cover, noting the individuality of the motorcycle.

In conjunction with the launch of this striking new model, Ducati is excited to announce its entry in the 2011 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, featuring last year’s winning line up of Greg Tracy and Alexander Smith. Preparations have already begun for the defense of the title, and Ducati will be fighting for top time up the mountain come June. In addition to racing the event, Ducati will be organizing a Multistrada owner tour to the race; dubbed “All Roads Lead To Pikes Peak.” The event will be the first official Multistrada owner’s gathering, and details will be on the Ducati - Bikes, Equipment, Accessories, Racing, Company, Dealer - Official Site Ducati shortly.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, or “Race to the Clouds”, is situated in a range of the Rocky Mountains, 10 miles west of Colorado Springs and races 12.42 miles from a start line altitude of 9,390 feet to a finish line at 14,110 feet. First held in 1916, the event is now on the international calendar of the FIA in addition to holding seven motorcycle categories from 250-1200cc.

The early arrival model year 2012 Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition will be available in North America from June 2011 onwards.

i'm a fan of ducati, but not their multistrada. c'mon duc, you made a pikes peak edition MS because of this "victory"? your only competitor was buell.

as the rider states "the multistrada will be the bike to beat for years to come." well why exactly did a racer on a bike with almost half your multistrada's displacement complete the course in less time than you?

one of my boys left some paint on the 55 bike last year. The overall results are kind of funny when you see some of the big bikes so far down.

750cc class is one of the fastest because Gary Trachy and a few others show up. Hoping I can get out there in 2012.

Pretty sure if you look at the results again (i could be wrong, but I was told by peeps that were there, that the Duc took overall), the Multi took the overall... The second Multi crashed on one of the last turns, and remounted.. otherwise it would have been a 1, 2 on the podium.

in 1205cc, Multi took 1st and 3rd. Overall, it was 2nd and the other bike finished much further back.

Allright, I went back and looked again.. it did get beat by the other bikes in the overall, but what do those weigh vs the Multi? 100 lbs less? The multi, save the windscreen and the muffler, was a stock bike, much like the Hyper that ran there a few years ago (it had different tires on it though).. not bad for a bike that is predominantly being used as a tourer if you ask me.. LOL!

To be fair, Trachy holds the summit record. Duc would pretty much need to put Jesus on the multi to beat him.
