The Ducati Multistrada is a series of V-twin “street trailie” bikes that debuted in 2003. The Multistrada, which is essentially a mix of a supermoto and a sport-tourer, competes in the market with other dual-sport bikes such as the BMW GS; however, unlike the Yamaha TDM850, the original Multistrada was not designed or appropriate for off-road usage. Following models are and include an enduro variant with spoke wheels.
The Ducati Multistrada, designed by Pierre Terblanche as an extension of his previous design, the Cagiva Gran Canyon, has received mixed reviews for its unique appearance. Multistrada is an Italian term that means “many roads.”
Ducati Multistrada 1000DS
Based on Ducati’s existing engines, the 2005 Multistrada 1000DS has a 992 cc air cooled 90° V-twin engine with a 40 degree included valve angle, twin-spark plug heads, pressure fed plain camshaft bearings, redesigned crankshaft, higher oil pressure and volume, and new alloy clutch basket, drive and driven plates. The Ducati 1000DS has a trellis frame with completely adjustable 165 mm travel Showa forks up front and a single-sided swingarm, as well as a Showa fully adjustable rear shock and a rising rate, height-adjustable suspension system at the rear.
Front and rear disc brakes are equipped with four piston Brembo “Serie Oro” brake callipers. Throughout, 320 mm front discs, a single 245 mm rear disc, and steel-braided brake lines are employed. The discs are now directly affixed to enlarged hubs, removing the need for disc carriers. The wet weight is 504–505 pounds (229–229 kg).
The initial version, released in 2003, featured a 1,000 cc engine, but a 620 cc variant was released in 2005. The 2003 Multistrada earned the majority of its critiques owing to its seat, which Motorcyclist magazine described as “a vinyl covered slab of plywood,” and a windscreen that produced excessive buffeting.
The 1000DS Multistrada received an improved side stand in 2005 (the side stand from 2003–2004 was too short and made the bike prone to accidental tip-over), redesigned seats with softer padding and less angular shapes, improved mirrors with longer stems for better visibility, and the optional touring screen from the 2003–2004 model year became standard. In 2005, the 1000DS S variant was introduced, which had hlins suspension, black wheels, and carbon fiber belt covers and front fender. The S-model also included a larger aluminum handlebar that was intended to minimize vibration and enhance handling.
