Ducati Multistrada Link Motorcycle App
Ducati’s Multistrada 1200 has already proven itself as a leader in technological innovation, the S model arriving with electronic suspension and four rider modes. Things progressed in 2015 when the Multistrada S became the first Ducati to arrive with Bluetooth technology as standard, the system allowing a true digital eco-system where vehicle, smartphone, satnav and helmet are all interconnected.
But tech only gets better with the new Ducati Multistrada Link App, which links an iOS device directly to the motorcycle, providing a truly unique rider experience. The app, which will soon be available for Android devices displays live performance data, route information, and allows users to share the travel experience live via social media.
The Ducati Multistrada Link provides the platform for riders to check and update their profiles and motorcycle status (fuel level, riding mode usage percentages, distance ridden), and keeps a log with detailed information on previous rides and routes taken.
Multistrada Link gathers data from the motorcycle before, during and after the ride via Bluetooth technology, which connects the smartphone to the vehicle Controller Area Network (CAN). During the ride, a smartphone with the new Ducati app will record the maximum lean angle and also display real-time lean angles plus the lean angle on the last corner taken. Afterwards, the user can pin-point on the map where the maximum lean angle was achieved.
In addition to lean angles, Multistrada Link also records maximums and averages for power delivery and speed and displays this data while riding.
At the end of the ride, the app saves all the data and information about the ride and lets the rider update any targets achieved, such as total distance covered or that covered during the single trip, number of routes recorded or consumption thresholds. The rider can thus share all the rewards with friends.
Further, Multistrada Link let users add photos and describe the journey; it also allows to indicate the best riding mode in which to take on the route.
After downloading the app to your smartphone, you can log in with the same access details used to enter the Ducati.com website or set up an account from the app via a standard registration form.
