Corse model to add to the Multistrada range

Ducati has plans to revise its Multistrada line-up next year with the addition of a high-spec “Corse” version of the bike above and beyond the current “S”.

Although it has yet to be officially announced, the Multistrada 1200S Corse is expected to be lined up alongside the existing Multistrada 1200, 1200S and 1200S Pikes Peak models.

Exactly what alterations will be made to create the “Corse” version have yet to be established, but when the same word was added to the 1198S last year it meant the addition of a race kit and aluminium fuel tank, plus extra Ducati Corse graphics.

The new bike's existence has been unwittingly revealed by new documents released by the California Air Research Board, showing that the Multistrada 1200S Corse has passed the emissions tests needed to go on sale there as a 2012 model. The same document reveals that the other versions – the base Multistrada 1200, the S model and the Pikes Peak – will remain in the line-up alongside it.

There isn't going to be a Corse model, Ducati have already said that, it was registedred in case they could not use the Pikes Peak name that they wanted to but they have permission to do so now so Corse won't be used.
