After more than a year of riding the Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro, we’ve given the ABR Verdict to the big adventure bike. The premise is simple. Following thousands of miles of riding in all conditions, we’ve assessed how the 1260 Enduro performed as a commuter, a weekend tourer, a pillion carrier, and as a continental road tourer. And, although we didn’t get to ride the bike around the world, we’ve summed up how we think it would fare as an RTW overlander.
