Test rider Casey Stoner, just back from the MotoGP race at Mugello, stopped by Ducati headquarters Bologna to try out the new Multistrada 1200 Enduro. The photos and video of his thrill-packed route over the hills surrounding Bologna show how the mix of asphalt and off-road terrain allowed the Australian racer to get a feel for the bike's outstanding qualities.

"I love it", said Stoner as he stepped off the new Multistrada Enduro. "We know how Ducati is on-road, but honestly in off-road I can't explain how good the Multistrada 1200 Enduro works. The riding position is almost better than an off-road bike and you don't get tired because it's so stable, also on really gravely and rocky terrain. The weight keeps the bike stable as on all of the big bikes, but on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro it feels like it's a toy all the time. You want to change your line, and it changes line. The Multistrada 1200 Enduro looks big but when you ride it you don't feel it. It's really something special, it has no limitations. You can enjoy the road, you can enjoy the dirt, you can take a lot with you when you travel everywhere, it's the best of every world and you can take your family on the back as well. I'm really impressed!"
