Ducati has prepared a slew of top-tier features for their upcoming 2021 Multistrada V4 bike slated for release in January 2021. Akrapovic has announced that they will have two new racing exhaust systems that will support this motorcycle at launch.
Aftermarket exhausts like these are highly beneficial as they can provide performance increase and weight reduction.
The first exhaust for the Multistrada V4 is the Racing unit. It comes with a titanium sleeve, carbon fiber end cap, and a stainless steel silencer. As Akrapovic claims, this exhaust will add 4 horsepower to the V4 engine. Also, it will provide an additional 6 lb-ft of torque. You will certainly see the most difference in the weight, as this exhaust system will reduce 11 pounds (5 kg) from the motorcycle.
The second exhaust is the type-approved one, with more subtle changes. It comes with a titanium sleeve and a carbon fiber end cap. This particular exhaust system will provide only 1,5 pounds (700 grams) of weight reduction.
The racing unit will cost $3,200 (€2,630/£2,397), while the type-approved exhaust will cost $1,700 (€1,398/£1,273). You can buy these directly from Ducati, from their Multistrada V4 configurator tool.
