Up for auction is my 2013 Ducati Multistrada Pikes Peak Edition. I've had the bike for around a year or so and I had planned on doing some longer rides out West, but things changed and I'm looking to get into another home. The bike is in immaculate condition with only one stone chip in the paint on the nose fairing that's the size of the tip of a .07 mechanical pencil.
The previous owner fitted new tires and clay barred the bike prior to me picking it up. This is the Pikes Peak Edition which is the different paint scheme and all of the goodies of the S model. The bike comes with the quick detach side bags and optional rear top mount box that has its own dedicated mounting plate.
I serviced the bike by doing an oil and filter change as well as a coolant flush. I added Engine Ice coolant as I do to all of my bikes to help them along in the Summer months. The bike will be due for the 15,000 mile service, which is one of the more expensive services. Depending on the maintenance required it can cost between [hidden information] dollars. A lot of people have asked me about the service history and I wanted to be completely transparent. The previous owner advised that he had the valves checked at the 9,000 mile service and that they were in spec, but I received no documentation of this. If the valves are in spec and don't need any adjustment the maintenance will be well under 1000 dollars. The bike is absolutely gorgeous and I'm always questioned about how new it is. People are shocked to hear that it's a 2013.
One thing that aggravated me was the fuel cap as the bike is push to start which enables you to keep the key hidden or at least in your pocket. It made things a bit cumbersome when you were fueling up so I installed a SSR keyless gas cap, which makes things a lot easier during fill ups.
The bike has the full Termignoni exhaust system and has been Ducati Performance tuned to match the ECM to the exhaust system. Additional items added are Rizoma rear fender eliminator and license plate light with integrated signals, Rizoma grips and bar ends, Rizoma front and rear brake reservoirs, and a clutch fluid reservoir, and a Ducabike front sprocket cover, Speedymoto front crash bobbins, and an integrated tail light that has the pulse braking feature. The bike comes with the RAM gps/phone mount...which works awesome with my iPhone and the bike also has Powermadd cell phone charger (pictured) that converts the 12V from the battery into a USB outlet up front.
If you're looking at a Pikes Peak Multi, you know what it is. The bike has the Skyhook system that gives you the ability to pick between four riding modes and pairs the suspension, ECM, and ABS to give you a full technology suite that makes the bike an absolute blast to ride. The full Termi system makes the bike sound the way a Ducati should and it's blisteringly fast. If I'm being honest, I was surprised by how much grunt the bike has. With full bags, and the suspension elevated all the way, it looks like a very big bike. When you hop on and grab the wide bars it almost feels like a Monster.
The 13 models have the Panigale style wheels, LED low beams, a little bigger fly screen, and a few other subtle differences that make them stand out.
This bike performs flawlessly with one rider or two up with the top box/back rest fitted. Your passenger has a grab rail and can just lean back and enjoy the trip with the backrest that's integrated into the top box. Additionally, the skyhook suspension can be tailored for one person, two person, and luggage capacities. All luggage components can be put on and removed with the key in less than a minute.
The selectable rider modes are unbelievable. You can toggle between Sport, Enduro, Touring, and Urban. The different modes change the parameters of the suspension, ECM, traction control, and ABS. I generally leave the bike in the Sport mode to get the most power out of it, but have used the Touring mode on longer rides and it's actually noticeable how much more plush it makes the suspension.
As all Multis go, it has power ports galore, and battery tender hookups for the front and rear.
Please feel free to ask any questions you like and I'll get back to you right away.
