So, you already like the Ducati Multistrada; now you can switch it to love the Multistrada. How does Desmodromic Variable Timing (DVT) (for a claimed 160 hp at 9500 rpm and 100 lb-ft of torque at 7500 rpm.), cornering ABS (utilizing Ducati’s Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to factor in lean angle to the ABS function), and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) strike you? Now, add in a redesigned frame with a narrower seat to ease the reach to the ground. Of course, other top-shelf features abound – like the Ducati Multimedia System which connects your smartphone to the Duc. Listen in to E-i-C Kevin Duke for more.

Like most of the best happenings in his life, Evans stumbled into his motojournalism career. While on his way to a planned life in academia, he applied for a job at a motorcycle magazine, thinking he’d get the opportunity to write some freelance articles. Instead, he was offered a full-time job in which he discovered he could actually get paid to ride other people’s motorcycles – and he’s never looked back. Over the 25 years he’s been in the motorcycle industry, Evans has written two books, 101 Sportbike Performance Projects and How to Modify Your Metric Cruiser, and has ridden just about every production motorcycle manufactured. Evans has a deep love of motorcycles and believes they are a force for good in the world.
