Ducati Motor Holding recently made a gift of two Ducati Multistradas to Pope Bendictus XVI to be used as special escort vehicles for the Corps of Gendarmerie of Vatican City during official security duties for the Pontiff. Finished in the special livery of the Pontifical State, the bikes were delivered directly to the Pope’s summer residence in Castel Gandolfo, Rome on September 15. According to Ducati, this is the first time in history that the Vatican Gendarmerie Corp will use motorcycles in their security tasks. The 1200cc bikes were modified for the Gendarmerie Corp with a vertically telescopic flashing light mast, siren and radio communication.Here’s the real story:
Rider tested a Multistrada S Touring version in the June 2010 issue, and we’re currently working on a long-term test of a standard model with ABS.
