The all-new Ducati Multistrada V4 finally has an unveiling date. The Italian company will pull the sheets off from the new dual-sport motorcycle on 4 November. Ducati has been testing the latest V4-powered Multistrada for quite some time now. The iconic two-wheeler brand has also revealed the key engine details of the upcoming motorcycle.
Ducati will use its latest 1158cc V4 engine called the V4 Granturismo for the new Multistrada. This powerplant has been crafted to guarantee both durability and reliability. No wonder why Ducati claims that this motor has a record-breaking maintenance interval of 60,000 km.
Apart from being extremely reliable and durable, the V4 Granturismo is also very light. It weighs just 66.7 kg which makes it 1.2 kg lighter than the Testastretta twin-cylinder used on the previous Multistrada 1260. As for the output figures, the new Ducati Multistrada V4 will have 170 hp of maximum power that will be produced at 10,500 rpm and 125 Nm that will be generated at 8,750 rpm. All this respecting the stringent Euro 5 homologation norms.
The V4 Granturismo also inherits some elements derived from the experience gained by Ducati in the racing world, such as the decision to adopt a counter-rotating crankshaft, which improves the handling and agility of the bike, and to exploit the “Twin Pulse” technology, capable of offering a full-bodied but perfectly manageable power delivery at every speed.
The Multistrada brand has always been very special for Ducati. Considering the various milestones which the previous models have achieved, expectations from the all-new V4-powered Multistrada are sky-high. We are really looking forward to seeing the latest Multistrada V4 in flesh, are you?
