Finally, Ducati has launched a new companion bike to its ADV family – the 2021 Multistrada V4. What makes it so unique about it is the sheer power of its V4 engine. Now, we have some juicy details for you!
The 2021 Multistrada variant features a brand-new, liquid-cooled 1185cc V4 Granturismo engine. It is a true powerhouse that produces 170 horsepower and 92 lb-ft of torque thanks to 16 total valves. The bike will be excellent on the off-road, that’s for sure!
It will come in three variants:
- V4 S
- V4 S Sport
The V4 model comes in a red single color option, while the V4 S will feature Grey Aviator hues to the classic red color.
If you decide to invest in the V4 S Sport, you will get only one color option, the “Sport Livery”. Still, with this variant, you get a full carbon fiber Akrapovic exhaust and a carbon fiber front fender. Well, these two more than make up for only a single color scheme.
Based on Ducati’s claims, the 2021 Multistrada V4 will address the frequent valve adjustment problem. Apparently, this bike will be able to do 36,000- mile intervals (approx. 58,000 km) between valve services.
Also, Ducati has paid extra care in the construction of the bike for the off-road. Its construction is dominated by an aluminum monocoque frame that is paired to a steel trellis subframe. There is a fully adjustable, 50mm inverted front fork to provide balance, as well as the double-sided swingarm on the rear.
If you manage to get your hands on the V4 S or S Sport variants, they have Ducati’s signature Skyhook Suspension system. Summarized, it allows auto-leveling, which is an incredible feature for the off-road.
Ducati implemented some new technology, too, such as:
- Wheelie control
- Traction control
- ABS braking
- Cornering lights (only for S and S Sport)
- Four riding modes
- Vehicle Hold Control (keeps the motorcycle steady for easier restarts)
- Adaptive cruise control
- Blind-spot detection system
When can we see the 2021 Multistrada V4 in the dealerships? Well, it’s slated for release in all Ducati dealerships in January of 2021! It’s certainly going to be a fun winter!
