Other changes to the bike are the steering rake increase from 24 to 25 degrees and a 48 mm longer swingarm. This effectively gives the new vehicle a longer wheelbase allowing for better stability.

The 1260 S also gets a new high-definition TFT display and a whole host of rider assist options including four riding modes – sport, touring, urban and enduro.In Europe, the Ducati Multistrada 1260 is priced similar to its predecessor, the 1200.
