Ducati has added two specially-equipped 950 Multistrada EMT motorcycles to the 2017 Race Smart Program for the Pike's Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC), one of the most treacherous road races in the world.

Noting the improved results and confidence levels of the racers in the first year, Ducati decided to expand the successful mentoring program it initiated in partnership with the PPIHC. "For 2017, we saw an opportunity to further enhance the safety of all participants by incorporating moto EMTs for rapid response in the case of a course incident." said Jason Chinnock, CEO of Ducati North America.

The bikes will be piloted by Dr. Gary Klein, long-time race physician and Safety Team lead for the PPIHC, and Duxton Milam, a 20-year EMT and veteran flight medic with the National Guard, both of whom also have decades of motorcycle riding experience.

Thanks for the feedback look forward to hearing

 

@G8GAV It's a modified Multistrada specifically for the PPIHC. @Techrat We'll look into that and get back to you.  

 

@allworld Excellent idea.

Personally, I'd like to see the modified spec vs the standard bike. What improvements and changes have they made to make these bikes emergency ready? What medical equipment and medicines do they carry? What kind of injuries and health issues can they take care of out in the field?

 

I had read about this earlier. I think it's something that should be expanded, to all motorcycle centric events, and popular motorcycle roads. It could even be beneficial in a lot of urban areas where traditional emergency vehicles are often hindered by traffic.
