The new Multistrada 1200 is powered by the brand-new revolutionary Ducati Testastretta DVT engine which adopts a Desmodromic continuous variable valve timing to optimize power and torque across a wider rpm band delivering an unprecedented combination of breath-taking-torque (136 Nm@7.500 rpm), class-leading power (160 Hp@9.500 rpm) , super-smoothness and low fuel consumption; the Desmodromic Variable Timing (DVT) is a double and continuous system applied for the first time to a motorcycle engine managing both exhaust and intake camshafts.

On a conventional engine both the exhaust and intake valves’ open or closed position depends on their fixed position relative to the timing-belt that’s driven by the crankshaft. The timing cannot be altered, so there’s no way to increase or decrease the amount of valve overlap when both valves are open at the same time. As a consequence the time that the valves open and close is really optimized for only one engine speed-range away from those rpm, fixed camshaft timing is the best compromise. The aim of the new Multistrada 1200's engine was to increase power at high engine speeds and also increase torque at low rpm, the only way to achieve this goal was to use a variable valve timing system.
