Ducati has reclaimed the crown as the two-wheeled king of Pikes Peak from KTM, with racer Carlin Dunne in the saddle of a mostly-stock Ducati Multistrada 1260 with a few bolt ons!

Dunne’s race-winning bike is actually pretty darn similar to the one that anyone can go buy at a dealer. The Pikes Peak model separates itself from other Multistrada trims with a Termignoni exhaust, an Öhlins suspension, and carbon fiber bodywork for weight reduction purposes. The changes to Dunne’s mount were relatively minor, including different handlebars, Pirelli slicks, and a different Brembo master brake cylinder. Photo via the talented @larry_chen_foto.
