    Most of the Ducatisti in the Netherlands are expecting it every winter now, the Ducati special build each year by Dutch Ducati Dealer Affetto Ducati in Overasselt (near Nijmegen), Netherlands.

    Last year (winter 2012-2013) they build a retro cafe-racer which started out as a Sport 1000 and ended up with 996 front forks, Accessato brake calipers, some NCR parts and a handmade exhaust system, amongst other modifications.

    This year (winter 2013-2014) Affetto Ducati owner Leo Fleuren was inspired by the highest mountain in Northern Africa......Toubkal, a mountain peak in southwestern Morocco, located in the Toubkal National Park. At 4,167 metres (13,671 ft), it is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains and in North Africa and located 63 km south of the city of Marrakesh

    With riding in rough sandy terrain such as you find in Morocco in mind Affetto Ducati have transformed a Ducati Multistrada 1200 in to a true Superenduro!

    The Multistrada base model itself is already a great bike for touring but the special edition modified by Affetto Ducati is ready for the rough roads and the dessert! The bike is equipped with spoke wheels by Kineo wich are suitable for tubeless tyres. It has large aluminum sidecases, equipped with a small water tank and a bag for some tools.

    The windscreen is one with better aerodynamics to reduce wind turbulence. That's not all of it, the Multi also is equipped with lots of Touratech protection to make sure essential parts won't get damaged in a fall. It also has sturdy crash protection to keep the special custom paintwork safe.
