Multistrada 1200 S: Best Open Streetbike

Motorcycle News

Ducati North America and Cycle World Magazine have announced the award for “Best Open Streetbike” of 2010 to the new Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Sport.

As part of Cycle World’s “10 Best” motorcycle awards, which have been given annually since 1976, the title of “Best Open Streetbike” is a desirable accolade in the motorcycle industry. This follows UltimateMotorCycling.com’s highly selective 2010 Game Changer award.

Ducati is especially proud of its Multistrada 1200 S Sport getting this year’s nod as Best Open Streetbike, as the Multistrada is a perfect fit.

The title honors the Multistrada’s great versatility in all segments; not just limiting it to the Dual Sport, Sport Tourer, or Superbike classes. Cycle World states this in their review:

“Corner carving in many regions has degenerated into an endurance contest, wherein hardened enthusiasts suffer through hours of low bars, high pegs and thin seats in a quest for sportbikedom’s Holy Grail, the apex. This is why the 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Sport is a revelation.”

“With its broad, high-leverage handlebar and bolt-upright ergonomics, a punchy, superbike-sourced 135-horsepower liquid-cooled V-Twin and 17-inch wheels, the newest Multi is comfortable and fun and fast everywhere-a true horizon-expander.”

The Multistrada 1200 S Sport has only been on the market for two months and it has already deemed itself worthy of the motorcycle award. For the customers who ordered their bike after the model’s announcement in 2009, it has proved more than worth the wait.
