First introduced in 2003, the Ducati Multistrada is series of V-twin “street trailie” motorcycles. Essentially a hybrid of a supermoto and a sport-tourer, the Multistrada competes in the market with other dual-sport motorcycles such as the BMW GS; but, like the Yamaha TDM850, the original Multistrada was neither intended nor suitable for off-road use. Subsequent models are and offer an enduro version with spoke wheels.
Designed by Pierre Terblanche as an evolution to his previous design, the Cagiva Gran Canyon, the Multistrada has drawn mixed reviews for its unconventional aesthetics. The word Multistrada is Italian for “many roads”.
