    The 2019 Ducati Multistrada Enduro is receiving the upgrades that the rest of the model family has been enjoying for a couple of years. These include the larger 1,262-cc Testastretta V-twin with DVT variable valve timing and more power, a revised frame and enough electronic systems to cause a racing superbike blush.

    The Multistrada has been around since 2003, powered by a 1000-cc air-cooled V2 engine and introduced as a contender in the Adventure motorcycle class. That first generation didn't try much to hide its road-oriented character, rolling on 17-inch wheels and street tires.

    Ducati had essentially followed on Yamaha's TDM example, paving the way for the emerging "street adventure" sub-class that fused a tall and upright riding position with motorcycles that were bluntly indifferent to anything that took place away from paved roads. This class was later populated by several popular models like the Triumph Tiger 1050, Kawasaki Versys 1000 and MV Agusta Turismo Veloce.
