Ducati Multistrada V4: At a glance
As per previous reports, the Ducati Multistrada V4 will come in a single variant and offer an aggressive semi-faired design, featuring a stepped-up seat, a sloping fuel tank, and an upward-bent exhaust pipe. The bike will also get an adjustable transparent windscreen, a TFT instrument console, a Ducati Multimedia system, spoked wheels, and an all-LED setup for lighting.
Power and performance
The Ducati Multistrada V4 adventure tourer is expected to draw power from a 1,262cc four-cylinder V4 engine whose power figures are unknown. For reference, the Panigale V4's 1,103cc four-cylinder mill makes 211hp/124Nm.

Meanwhile, the suspension duties on the premium adventure tourer should be taken care of by a fully-adjustable setup from Öhlins.
How much will it cost?
Details pertaining to the pricing and availability of the Ducati Multistrada V4 in India will be announced on October 15. It is likely to sport a price-tag of around Rs. 20 lakh.
