The Pikes Peak 100th Anniversary Replica Kit is limited to 400 units, and will be given away to the first Ducati customers who order a Pikes Peak version of the Multistrada, on a first come first served basis. The kits are only available with new bikes purchased at authorized Ducati dealers.

Now, you might ask what do Ducati and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb have in common, and that is so strong as to cause Borgo Panigale to add PPIHC special kit to a special edition model. First of all, the Ducati Multistrada 1200 is the fastest motorcycle to have raced to the clouds, ever.

Carlin Dunne is the fastest motorcyclist that rode up the Pikes Peak, with his 9'52.819 performance in 2012 still standing firm, a good way ahead of the next best times. Dunne's records are even more impressive, as he claimed the King of the Mountain in each of the three races he entered so far.

His teammate Greg Tracy is one of the only three riders to go under the magic 10-minute mark, and also the only racer to break the 10-minute barrier with both motorcycle and car.

As for the Pikes Peak edition of the Multistrada 1200, the racing livery and the aftermarket Termignoni exhaust are only the things that are easy to spot at the first glance. We should also add the top-drawer Ohlins suspensions, plus other cool features, such as the Bosh 9ME multi-calibration cornering ABS with the Ducati branded 8-level traction control, full-LED lights, cornering lights, wheelie control, cruise control, or riding modes.

The Ducati Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak 100th Anniversary Replica Kit contains the following extras:
  • a personalized Pikes Peak “100” race number plate
  • motorcycle fairing partner logos
  • a numbered crankcase cover badge with Pikes Peak 100th Anniversary logo
  • Spider Grips PEAK grip specifically developed based on the race program
  • a Pikes Peak Squadra Alpina Team Hat
  • the Pikes Peak Squadra Alpina Decal Pack
  • a History of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb advance release DVD
  • a Pikes Peak Squadra Alpina Team glossy poster, signed by the team, all champions of the Mountain: Carlin Dunne, Micky Dymond, Gary Trachy and Greg Tracy.
