The Italian motorcycle manufacturer has launched the Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak, which is a special edition model that celebrates Greg Tracy’s victory at Colorado's famous International Hill Climb race in 2010.

Featuring the Corse style exterior finish, the Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak comes with passenger foot-peg hangers, a black engine guard, red pin-striped wheels, a carbon fiber silencer and a race inspired low screen also made from carbon.

Besides introducing this special edition bike, Ducati has also announced their participation at this year's edition of Pikes Peak with the same winning team from 2010 (Greg Tracy and Alexander Smith).

The Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak price starts at 16,750 GBP, with UK availability starting in May.

Ducati press release :

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 at an SRP of £16,750.
