The Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Sport has only been on the market for two months and it has already deemed itself worthy of a prestigious award. Ducati North America and Cycle World Magazine have announced the award for “Best Open Streetbike” of 2010 to the new Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Sport.

According to Ducati, as part of Cycle World’s “10 Best” awards, which have been given annually since 1976, the title of “Best Open Streetbike” is one of the most desirable accolades in the entire motorcycle industry. Ducati is especially proud of its Multistrada 1200 S Sport getting this year’s nod as Best Open Streetbike, as the Multistrada is a perfect fit. The title honors the Multistrada’s great versatility in all segments; not just limiting it to the Dual Sport, Sport Tourer, or Superbike classes. Cycle World states this in their review:

“Corner carving in many regions has degenerated into an endurance contest, wherein hardened enthusiasts suffer through hours of low bars, high pegs and thin seats in a quest for sportbikedom's Holy Grail, the apex. This is why the 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Sport is a revelation. With its broad, high-leverage handlebar and bolt-upright ergonomics, a punchy, superbike-sourced 135-horsepower liquid-cooled V-Twin and 17-inch wheels, the newest Multi is comfortable and fun and fast everywhere—a true horizon-expander.”

The Ducati Multistrada's have been great bikes since their inception. This newer model looks more like a Suzuki DL than it's predecessor. I'm sure it performs a lot nicer though!
