New 2013 Ducati Multistrada 1200 S with Skyhook Suspension

Well it's past three in the morning here in Australia but the first video of the new 2013 Ducati Multistrada 1200 S with Skyhook Suspension has appeared in the form of a promotional video. Quite a cheesy one I might add.
You be the judge. Is the cheese lost in translation? It certainly sounds more sexy in Italian but here is the English speaking version.

 

Skyhook suspension, which ensures the best set-up every inch of the way, and the stunningly smooth Testastretta 11° DS engine merge with unmistakeable Ducati appeal to provide the ride of your life. The ‘S’ versions of the Multistrada 1200 are now equipped with electronic 48mm Sachs front forks and rear single shock, both featuring the new Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) system. Now an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), the 2013 Multistrada 1200 is equipped with the very latest Bosch ABS 9ME controlled Brembo braking system, an unbeatable combination of state-of-the-art security and track-proven power. For 2013, the arrival of the second generation Testastretta 11° DS engine introduces a number of important and highly effective enhancements, increasing torque to 12.7kgm (91.8lb-ft) and overall mid-range power delivery with even smoother operation.

Introducing Testastretta 11° DS second generation

For 2013, the arrival of the second generation Testastretta 11° DS engine introduces a number of important and highly effective enhancements, increasing torque to 12.7kgm (91.8lb-ft) and overall mid-range power delivery with even smoother operation. The improvements perfectly complement the new Multistrada 1200 by using a combination of new technologies proven on the 1199 Panigale’s Superquadro engine, and established technologies reintroduced to further enhance the overall package.Breaking it hear first, you can get the full story from www.multistrada.ducati.com Cheesey video or not, I totally want the Pikes Peake version.
