Essential Accessories for Ducati Multistrada 1200Oct 27, 2010
Everyone at Touratech is excited about the arrival of the new Ducati Multistrada 1200 in the U.S. Its dual-functionality is in its name: Multi-Strada - ready for any street. The Multistrada can be adjusted on the fly for various conditions, on and off road. A new line of Touratech parts and accessories will further increase the durability and function of this new exiting Ducati.
Please see our Ducati Multistrada 1200 Section for a selection of parts currently available in the U.S. for this bike and keep checking back as more parts become available every week. For a sample of Multistrada parts that will be offered, see below.
Keep your Ducati Multistrada's fairing, radiator, and water pump safe with these stainless steel crash bars from Touratech. Even the most minor drops can cost you hundreds of dollars in replacement plastics on the Multistrada 1200. These crash bars are engineered to be extremely strong and protect your Ducati in the event of a fall.
The engineers at Touratech in Germany put many hours of research, design, and testing into these crash bars, ensuring that all forces from a crash are transmitted safely into strong frame points and not into any engine component. A sturdy cross-bar keeps the forces distributed equally between both sides.
Crash Bars, Part # 620-5160
Front ABS Sensor Guard
The ABS sensor is a critical part of the safety system on the Ducati Multistrada 1200 and also very vulnerable. Touratech has developed this simple protection item to keep your bike on the road during that long tour. Made of strong laser cut stainless steel, this guard will protect your ABS sensor against flying rocks and other debris you might encounter on, and off pavement.

These auxiliary lights from Touratech offer considerable improvements in active and passive safety to the Multistrada. Thanks to the high-tech lamps from Hella, your path is much better illuminated at night and in foul-weather conditions. During the day, the intense light pattern makes you and your motorcycle much more visible to other motorists. The fog light ensures significantly better close range visibility in foggy and rainy conditions, while the Xenon (HID) light, which operates in combination with the high beam headlight, provides far brighter illumination down the road. These auxiliary headlights are available separately, but work perfectly together as a pair.

Stainless Steel Radiator Guard
The Ducati Multistrada 1200 makes big horsepower and in return, requires a lot of cooling for the engine. Our radiator shield, made from electropolished stainless steel, transforms the appearance of the black radiator and offers increased protection, while minimally affecting the cooling capacity.

Oil Cooler Guard
Oil cooling is just as important as water cooling for an engine as powerful as the 1200 Ducati Multistrada. This guard from Touratech adds a great look to the front of the motorcycle while increasing the protection.

License Plate Splash Guard
Like all on-road motorbikes, the Ducati Multistrada 1200 tends to spray a large and high column of water behind it. Usually, some of this water splashes on the backs of the rider and passenger, as well as the rear of the bike. This is unpleasant and annoying. This elegant splash guard from Touratech, is easily installed and deflects the water from both the rider and the bike.

Larger Sidestand Foot
Wet meadows, soft asphalt, deep gravel - there is often no solid ground available where you park your motorcycle! The original side stand easily sinks into soft surfaces, but the Touratech larger sidestand foot provides a simple and effective way to keep your bike upright in any conditions.

Brave New World is now! I for one am stoked about these canhges as suspension set up is always a headache for me. What I wonder though, is why soo much power? I know we at HFL clamber all the time for 250-600cc engined bikes (look at the number of comments that always pops up on the 250cc bikes featured here), but I for one do not get the need for 150HP in a touring bike/whatever category this is and the previous KTM. Will they be awesome spectacular bikes? Sure! But I often wish my R1100GS with 80HP and 75 torques (still pretty slow though) had lower displacement and better MPG . I basically am the kind of guy who loves the idea of the new Honda NC700X and want to see something in the premium range (BMW, Ducait, KTM) do something like the Honda, but with a bit more flavor. Can it be done? Discuss.
