Check out this 100 rwhp Ducati Multistrada 1123cc air cooled dual spark powered TestaRosa!

Once upon a time a very dear customer came to me and to our lead tech Marty aka “The Duc Whisperer” and said he would like to have us create a no expense spared Multistrada Beast!  Keep it streetable and reliable but make that Ducati Desmodue dual spark motor pound the ground! 

We started with running in the stock motor on the Dyno and got a base line reading before we started the transformation.  A few Ducati Performance items were ordered right up, DP cams, DP wet slipper clutch and a full Termignoni exhaust.  Once the exhaust arrived, it was off to be polished after tuning bungs were carefully installed right where Marty wanted them for Dyno tuning is a few weeks.   

Then Marty began the motor transformation, this was his second  MTS1100 motor in a row he had a chance to warm over.   Motor was pulled apart and we decided to choose the various well know experts in their fields to help with the special mods this motor was going to undergo which the first one did not.  Crankshaft was sent down to Fox Performance Cranks for his Stage 3: Lighten, knife edge, polish and balance treatment along with Carillo rod installation. Next we sent the head off to a very well known Ducati guru Guy Martin. he is the pioneer of the MBP valve collet systems and his famous “TestaRossa” heads for 2 valve Ducati motors.  You can read more about this below.  

Here were the immediate results, a bit more tweaks, development and tuning continued over the next 2 years.

Tests performed on a Superflow Dyno and numbers are corrected SAE, Dynojet numbers often quoted are approx 10% higher

Stock displacement = 1078cc – Measured rear wheel SAE Hp = 78.4 – Torque = 62 ft lb. @ 4800 rpm

Current displacement = 1123cc Measured rear wheel SAE Hp = 97.4 – Torque = 71.5 ft lb @ 5800 rpm

Here is what it takes to get there;

Along the way careful attention was paid to completing break in and proper upkeep with Marty keeping a close eye on it along the way, having a real opportunity to really dial this incredible motorcycle in.   Before the first 600 mile inspection, off came the factory Ohlins forks and rear shock the S models came with and they were sent off to KFG Suspension to be tuned to the owners weight and riding style.   The mods continued, the original owner had tasteful comfort upgrades performed like CRG mirrors and Acerbis hand guards with integrated signals along with CRG adjustable levers. Next he raised the bars slightly with Rizoma taller bar risers. A DP tall windshield, a carbon rear fender. and a Rich’s custom seats makes it all come together.   According to our friend, he had some legendary road trips down South on this Multistrada connecting with old friends and riding buddies along the way.   The Ducati MTS 1123 S never missed a beat.

In 2011 with just over 10,000 miles on this angry red headed Italian, our friend was lured by the hype of the new high tech very refined and polite Multi 1200 and traded this one in with us.  Only a few additional modifications have been made over the 8 years, a custom skid plate was added for some better engine protection and some sturdy Pelcan saddlebags, with custom easily removable mounting system.  Current owner told me that on his way here to SUB he saw the odometer click over to an even 17,000 miles as he thundered through the new Seattle tunnel. 

We were excited to get this one right up on the lift and looked it over close.  We went over all the build notes that still are with it, Marty even stopped by to check it out again, we remember this bike well. It was time for another oil and filter service, timing belts, clean air filters, install new quick change chain and sprocket kit, some fresh Pirelli rubber and a good detailing.   Checked compression, still right up at 165 lbs where it should be, checked valve clearances, all in spec still as they were at the 7500 mile check. It’s held up well, nice to see it again, now to find the right home for it. 

Here’s some of what the press had to say in a review about the stock version:

We got our hands on the Ducati Multistrada 1100 S only to be again introduced with the comfortable and tall riding position that we encountered on the Triumph Tiger. Still, you get to lean slightly towards the wide handlebar, but get a very good look of traffic ahead and feel well in control over what is a big piece of Italian motorcycle.   With a claimed dry weight of only 432 pounds, the Multistrada is very maneuverable as well as inviting. It corners sharply as the Metzler tires grip on to the road very well and, at the beginning, you actually feel the need to remind yourself that this isn’t the sharp Hypermotard and start considering that there’s a fair distance to the ground, which you wouldn’t want to travel upside down.

The engine is a massive torque provider and it makes things interesting wherever you ride. Throttle response is instant and the smooth fueling won’t surprise riders, even those who aren’t that experienced. Still, you get to have a lot of fun when opening the throttle because wheelies are second nature for the Multistrada S and, given the tall riding position, you feel like you’re taking off rather than trying to unveil the sporty side of the bike that you’re riding. Starting 2,200 rpm, things become very interesting in all of the six gears, but I’ve happened to have the most fun in second, third and fourth.         At high speed, both the fairing and windscreen do their job of deflecting wind and we must say that for the average-sized rider, this turns out to be a very good choice. Tall and very tall persons will most likely find that the wind hits them straight in the helmet, not just above it, like in my case. Also, it’s easy to appreciate the fact that the mirrors are mounted on the handlebar and not on the fairing because this enables the rider to get a good look behind at all times, making the bike easy to live within city traffic at least from this point of view.

Offering 6.5 inches of front wheel travel and 5.6 inches at the rear, the Ohlins suspension ensures that the rider won’t even feel the speed bumps, not to mention the road’s imperfections. We even took the Multistrada off the “strada” for a little while and came to find that it isn’t any weaker than the V-Strom or the Tiger despite the appearances.

We appreciate the Brembo brakes, which provide all of the needed stopping power and more, but also the fact that overall the bike feels rather easy to handle and provides good wind protection while being comfortable. On the other hand, anyone could live without the tall gearing simply because this takes the best of the engine’s character. But no bike is perfect although the Multistrada is, at least in our point of view, a potential candidate for that title.

Conclusion

There have been many speculations regarding the introduction of a brand new Multistrada in 2010 and although that hasn’t concluded into a finite product just yet, we must say that the current selling ones are precisely what riders with versatility in mind expect. I believe that the previous affirmation said it all about these bikes.

Our conclusion, all of the above X 10!
