At an equally packed media conference Ducati presented the new-for-2013 Monster Anniversary as well as new Diavel colours and the stunning 1199 Panigale RS13 intended for next year's World Superbike championship but the focus of the adventure-driven German public visiting the Ducati stand was definitely the new Multistrada 1200 S Granturismo.

LATEST BRAKES

The model attracted considerable interest in its long-distance ergonomics and enhanced luggage capacity as well as design features such as the pinch-and-slide adjustable info screen and diode lighting.

The innovative and comfort-enhancing Ducati Skyhook Suspension and Ducati safety pack of latest generation anti-lock brakes and traction control - as fitted to all 2013 S models - were also well received and look set to continue the Multistrada's impressive success.
