Casey Stoner Heads Off Road On Ducati's Multistrada 1200 Enduro

Recently famed professional rider Casey Stoner found his way into the saddle of Ducati’s off-road motorcycle, the new Multistrada 1200 Enduro.

Many riders are expanding their motorcycle experiences, not just by changing brands but by the style of riding all together. This could explain the growing number of riders leaving the asphalt behind to find their own trails.

Including Casey Stoner, an Australian professional motorcycle racer and a two-time MotoGP World Champion, in 2007 and 2011. In 2016 Casey Stoner returned to the Ducati Corse Team as a test rider for the 2016 MotoGP season, ending his five-year tenure with Honda. Stoner's main role with Ducati is being a test rider and it has been further proposed that he may appear in some races as a wild card entry.

Just back from the race at Mugello, Stoner stopped by in Bologna to try out Ducati’s new maxi-enduro.

 “I love it”, were the first words uttered by Casey Stoner as he stepped off 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 to get a feel for the bike's outstanding qualities.

"We know how Ducati is on-road, but honestly in off-road I can’t explain how good the Multistrada 1200 Enduro works,” Stoner said, “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.

Noting the motorcycle handling is nimble for the bike’s perceived size, opening up the riding possibilities for the Multistrada 1200 Enduro.

“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,” Stoner explains, “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!”
