Casey Stoner Ducati Multistrada Enduro Review – ‘Rides Like a Dream!’

Casey Stoner Ducati Multistrada Enduro Review – Video

Casey Stoner rides Ducati Multistrada Enduro TestFollowing round six of 2016 MotoGP at Mugello – a circuit sitting comfortably in the Tuscany Hills – Ducati’s official test rider Casey Stoner visited Ducati HQ in Borgo Panigale, the business district outside of Bologna.

The reason was more than to say hello and keep spirits high; the 30-year-old Australian was also there to pilot the all-new Multistrada 1200 Enduro. Stoner, the only rider to provide Ducati with a MotoGP title (2007) is the perfect mate for the Enduro considering he also participates in much dirt riding.

Being a huge ambassador of the Ducati brand, Stoner’s opinion counts. And it was nothing but positive for the Multi Enduro, which Stoner piloted throughout the back roads and off-road terrain in the hills surrounding Bologna.

Following the ride, highlighted in the below video, Stoner says: “I love it. We know how Ducati is on-road, but honestly in off-road I can’t explain how good the Multistrada 1200 Enduro works. The riding position is almost better than an off-road bike and you don’t get tired because it’s so stable, also on really gravely and rocky terrain.

“The weight keeps the bike stable as on all of the big bikes, but on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro it feels like it’s a toy all the time. You want to change your line, and it changes line. The Multistrada 1200 Enduro looks big but when you ride it you don’t feel it. It’s really something special, it has no limitations.

“You can enjoy the road, you can enjoy the dirt, you can take a lot with you when you travel everywhere, it’s the best of every world and you can take your family on the back as well. I’m really impressed!”

I have yet to review the Multistrada Enduro, but being a fan of Stoner, a serious off-road ADV rider, and owner of a base Ducati Multistrada 1200 with close to 40K, I’ll put my trust in Stoner’s words.
