Ducati India teases Multistrada V4; to be launched this month
Ducati will introduce the Multistrada V4 touring bike in India later this month, an official teaser video has confirmed. To recall, the two wheeler was unveiled in November last year with a semi-faired design, a V4 Granturismo engine, and a host of electronic riding aids. It is offered in three variants: V4, V4 S, and V4 S Sport. Here's our roundup.
Take a look at the teaser
It has an all-LED lighting setup
The Ducati Multistrada V4 sits on a monocoque chassis and features a muscular fuel tank, a stepped-up seat, an upswept exhaust, and a raised windscreen. It houses a digital instrument console, a full-LED lighting, and rides on 19- and 17-inch front and rear wheels. The top-end V4 S Sport offers an Akrapovic carbon fiber and titanium silencer and a carbon fiber front fender.
A 168hp Granturismo engine fuels the bike
The Ducati Multistrada V4 is powered by a 1,158cc, liquid-cooled, V4 Granturismo engine that generates 168hp of power at 10,500rpm and 125Nm of peak torque at 8,750rpm. Transmission duties are handled by a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Dual-channel ABS is available for improved handling on the roads
The Ducati Multistrada V4 gets disc brakes on both the wheels, along with dual-channel ABS, wheelie control, vehicle hold control, adaptive cruise control, and blind spot detection. The V4 model is equipped with fully-adjustable front forks and an adjustable mono-shock rear unit with Marzocchi's cantilever layout. The S and S Sport variants have a Ducati Skyhook Suspension system with auto-levelling function.
