Former MotoGP world champ, Casey Stoner recently had the opportunity to ride a Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro in Tuscany, around the hillsides of Bologna. "I can't describe how much I enjoyed it," said Stoner, who participated in DRE Enduro, an off-road ridind course hosted by Ducati. The Stoner family spent a few days in Castello di Nipozzano, near Florence, where the new Ducati riding school is based. The DRE Enduro programme, which included some extreme-situation simulations, was organised by former Dakar rider Beppe Gualini, who's now the technical director of DRE Enduro.

"I don’t have words to explain my weekend. It’s been awesome! The Frescobaldi family estate [where Stoner and family stayed] is really something special and it’s so beautiful to look out of the hotel window over most of Tuscany. It’s a perfect place for a riding experience like the DRE Enduro," said Stoner. "Basically you can’t really explain to people how good the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is - you just have to experience it. I’ve spent enough time on dirt-bikes in my life and riding such a big bike can be a little bit daunting at first, but after a couple of hours on the bike I was already very comfortable, and then I realized that you can basically go wherever you want to. I started to push pretty hard in the end and the bike responded to everything I did. Some of the trails got very steep and rocky but the bike never lost its footing and felt safe over every obstacle. This bike is truly exceptional - off-road, I believe it's second to none," he added.

Well, since Casey Stoner says so, we're sure the Multistrada is totally awesome, but we'd still take the 1299 Panigale S Anniversario, the most beautiful superbike in the world...

Is this the same Casey Stoner that test rode the rcv2013 GP bike and said it was .3 sec off the Factory bikes Pedrosa and Marquez were riding.

Nice job title Casey, think that says it all.
