Useful Information For Safe Riding; Carrying The Maximum Load Allowed - Ducati Multistrada 1200 ABS Owner's Manual

Carrying the maximum load allowed

Your motorcycle is designed for travelling over long
distances with a full load in complete safety.
Even weight distribution is critical to preserving these safety
features and avoiding trouble when performing sudden
manoeuvres or riding on bumpy roads.
The maximum speed permitted with the side panniers,
top case and the tank bag fitted must not exceed 180 km/h.
Do not exceed the total permitted weight for the
motorcycle and pay attention to information provided below
regarding load capacity.
Information on load capacity
The total weight of the motorcycle in running order
including rider, passenger, luggage and additional
accessories should not exceed:
430 kg.
The total weight permitted for the side panniers, top
case and the tank bag must never exceed 35 kg, divided as
10 kg max. per side pannier;
10 kg max for the top case;
5 kg max. for the tank bag.
Arrange your luggage or heavy accessories in the
lowest possible position and close to motorcycle centre.
Secure the luggage firmly to the motorcycle structure.
Luggage incorrectly secured may cause the motorcycle to
become unstable.
Never attach bulky or heavy objects to the top yoke or front
mudguard, as this would cause dangerous instability.
Do not insert objects into gaps in the frame, where they
could interfere with moving parts.
If the side panniers are fitted (available upon request from
the Ducati spare parts service), divide the baggage and
accessories based on their weight and place them uniformly
inside the side panniers. Lock both side panniers using the
suitable key lock.
Make sure the tyres are inflated to the proper pressure
indicated at page 159 and that they are in good condition.
