MC24.no managed to scoop official photos of the 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200 earlier tonight. The controversially styled adventure tourer inherits the 1198.4cc engine from the Ducati 1198, giving it a rumored 150bhp to power 192kg (dry). That means that R1200GS owners won't have to spend too long gagging at the horrible looks as the liquid-cooled Ducati disappears into the horizon. That triumph should last as far as the first gravel road, as this supposedly dirt-capable machine wears distinctly road-biased rubber. Both the standard model and the Ducati Multistrada 1200 S are pictured in the above gallery, with the latter wearing gold Ohlins forks to distinguish it from the base model. We'll bring you more details from the bike's official unveiling on Monday, but expect a similar model differentiation to the 1198 and 1198 S, with the S gaining traction control in addition to the fancy pants suspenders.
