The Ducati Multistrada V4 is all set to launch in India this month. The Italian manufacturer made the announcement on its social media platforms.
New Multistrada V4 was recently launched in international markets
Sold internationally in V4, V4S and V4 Sport trims
V4S features radar assisted adaptive cruise control
The Ducati Multistrada V4 recently went on sale in international markets, where it is sold in three variants – V4, V4S and V4 Sport. Whether Ducati brings all these variants to India remains to be seen. Nevertheless, the difference between the three variants is largely in terms of equipment.
Built completely from the ground up, the new Multistrada V4 features an all-new chassis, suspension, brakes and engine. The Multistrada’s V4 engine, dubbed the V4 Granturismo, makes 170hp at 10,500rpm and 125Nm of torque at 8,750rpm. For reference, the older 1,262cc, V-twin was capable of making 158hp at 9,500rpm and 128Nm of torque at 7,500rpm. Unlike the Multistrada 1260, which had Desmodromic valves, the V4 engine makes do with a spring valve return system, a change that has contributed to the huge 60,000km valve train service interval.
As expected, the Multistrada V4 is loaded to the gills with features and electronic rider aids. The radar-assisted adaptive cruise control is another premium feature on the V4S trim. To know more about the Multistrada V4, click here.
