• The Vienna University of Technology has presented Ducati and Dainese with
  a Professor Ferdinand Porsche Award
• This is a initial time a motorcycle has won a sought-after award, which
  celebrates engineering value in a European automotive industry
• The Multistrada 1200 S D|air underlines Ducati’s consistent joining to 
  improving reserve and a 2015 chronicle will be accessible usually in Europe, from

The University of Technology of Vienna (TU-Wien) has awarded a Ducati Multistrada 1200 S D|air with a prestigious esteem named after Professor Ferdinand Porsche. This is a initial time a honour, reserved each dual years by a Viennese University for superb technological creation in a automotive industry, has been awarded to a bureau motorcycle.

The prize-giving rite was hold on Friday 19 Jun during a Vienna University Festival Hall to commemorate a innovative talent of vehicle colonize Ferdinand Porsche (1875 –1951), Laurea Honoris Causa of a University of Technology of Vienna, and so prerogative European engineering excellence.

This year a esteem went to Ducati and Dainese on comment of a engineering creation shown by both companies in a ground-breaking engineering plan focused on improving safety.

Professor Bernhard Geringer, Director of a Institute of Automotive Engines and Technology of a University of Technology of Vienna and coordinator of a Professor Ferdinand Porsche Award organising committee, rigourously thanked Claudio Domenicali, Ducati Motor Holding CEO, who was benefaction during a cefremony. He afterwards handed over a 2015 esteem to Federico Sabbioni, Head of Vehicle Project Management of Ducati Motor Holding. On receiving a endowment Mr. Sabbioni settled “It’s an honour to paint a association during such an critical ceremony. Ducati has always been committed to safety. Over a final 10 years we’ve grown countless systems for this purpose; from ABS, that currently is a customary underline on all a motorcycles, and that is now accessible on a Multistrada 1200 finish with Cornering function, to Traction and Wheelie Control, as good as semi-active suspension. Passive reserve is equally critical when roving a motorcycle. Constructive, pioneering teamwork between Ducati and Dainese has led to a expansion of a D|air Street® System incorporated on a Multistrada 1200: it now includes a new algorithm that senses when a motorcycle is shifting out from underneath a supplement and hence activates a airbag. Moreover, a on-board element of sensors and control units has been grown together with a motorcycle to safeguard peculiarity and reliability. A outrageous step forwards for safety, then, though also an well-developed engineering achievement, a outcome of dual shining companies with a clever RD focus”.

The new Multistrada 1200 S D|air is a miracle in terms of technological creation and roving pleasure. It provides, as a element to other as-standard bike reserve features, an intelligent vehicle-integrated element that is wireless-connected to Dainese-made Ducati Apparel D|air airbag jackets. The Multistrada D|air element analyses a information and can increase a coupler airbags (rider and passenger) in only 45 milliseconds, extremely shortening a risk of impact-related injuries. The Multistrada 1200 S D|air has TÜV SÜD certification, released by a lawful German physique obliged for wearable airbag standards.
The 2015 chronicle of a Multistrada 1200 S D|air will be accessible in European Ducati Dealerships starting from a finish of July.
