The new model takes elements of the larger sister models, the Multistrada 1200 and Multistrada 1200 Enduro, using the lightest components of both to produce a unique motorcycle that is more compact and agile.

The new model is also equipped with a 19″ front wheel, adjustable front and rear shocks, 6.7 in (170 mm) of suspension travel and a shell-cast aluminium double-sided swingarm designed specifically for off-road use.
