PH2: NEW DUKE AND KTM ADVENTURE BIKES
More 2013 multi-roaders break cover
Both Ducati and KTM have unveiled new adventure bikes, showing once again how important this category of machine is to manufacturers.
Ducati has updated its Multistrada with a new look, a tweak to the Testastretta engine and the addition of a semi-active suspension system. Called Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS), the system creates an imaginary ‘hook’ in the air that the electronics use to calculate the suspension’s movement and to keep the bike level and pitch-free.
Ducati will release more information when the bike is launched later this month. PH2 will bring you a full technical explanation when we get our heads around it!
