2004 Ducati Multistrada 1000 DS, The Multistrada 1000 DS is a complete sport motorcycle for enthusiasts who ride as often and in as many challenging conditions as possible. Its riding position is more upright than the classic "forward-lean" ergonomics of most sport bikes without compromising performance. As a result, the Multistrada carves up mountain passes like a race bike, but is still comfortable for hours of two-up adventure touring. This perfect balance appeals to a wide range of riding styles, from the most aggressive to more relaxed. Capable of showing up even the most specialized of sport bikes, the Multistrada is also accessible to new riders. The bike exceeds the expectations of any enthusiast who rides it. The Multistrada's outstanding performance is the result of more than innovative design. Its 992 cc engine and the use of the highest quality Superbike components throughout also are key. The Multistrada 1000 DS combines: the signature Ducati trellis frame, our best Superbike suspension with more travel, race-bred brakes and lightweight alloy wheels with high-performance street tires. It has a lightweight, aluminum, single-sided swingarm and a compact and narrow fairing to provide protection from the elements. A full line of accessories -- like color-matched saddlebags, rear rack, satellite navigation system and taller windscreen -- lets you further extend your boundaries.
