Ducati unveils Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition

Ducati unveils the Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition in celebration of Greg Tracy’s famous
victory in the 2010 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race in Colorado. The Special Edition underlines
the race-bred heritage that exists deep inside every Ducati and follows a massive first year success for the
award-winning Multistrada 1200, which set a new industry benchmark in motorcycle technology with the
four-bikes-in-one concept.

The Pikes Peak Special Edition is specially dressed in stunning replica Ducati Corse-style paint scheme
with passenger foot-peg hangers and engine guard anodised in black finish and sport red pin-striping on the
wheels. In addition to the original equipment silencer and screen the Pikes Peak Special Edition arrives with
an EU approved Ducati Performance carbon fibre silencer by Termignoni and a race-derived low screen in
carbon fibre. A Ducati Performance carbon fibre front mudguard, and custom made seat detailed with red
stitching complete an enhanced specification well worthy of a race-winning replica.

Winning the highly challenging and multi-surface Pikes Peak race, which climbs a mountain track through
1,438 metres of altitude change, further underlined the exceptional all-terrains versatility of the Ducati
Multistrada by demonstrating how its four different Riding Modes immediately adapt the motorcycle to any
environment. Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro Riding Modes are made selectable by the simple click of
a button, instantly transforming the Multistrada’s suspension, power output and traction control settings
electronically, a feature that Greg Tracy will use again in 2011.

In conjunction with the launch of this striking new model, Ducati is pleased to announce its entry in the 2011
Pikes Peak event, featuring last year’s winning line-up of Greg Tracy and Alexander Smith. Preparations
are already underway for the title defence in June, when Ducati will be fighting for the fastest time up the
mountain.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, or “Race to the Clouds”, is situated in a range of the Rocky
Mountains, 16km west of Colorado Springs and races 20km from a start line altitude of 2,862 metres to a
finish line at 4,300. First held in 1916, the event is now on the international calendar of the FIA in addition to
holding seven motorcycle categories from 250-1200cc.

The early arrival model year 2012 Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Special Edition will be available from May
2011 onwards.
