    Ducati Multistrada V4: Engine

    Powering the Multistrada V4 is the ‘V4 Granturismo engine’. This engine misses out on the company’s Desmodromic valves and makes do with a spring valve return system, a change that has contributed to the huge service interval. The company claims a 60,000km interval between a valve check which is double the distance than that of the V-twin powered Multistrada 1260. 

    Ducati has added that the engine has been tuned to improve the riding experience at lower revs. The company claims that its Euro 5 (BS6) compliant engine makes 170hp at 10,500rpm and maximum torque of 125Nm at 8,750rpm. At 66.7kg, the V4 Granturismo engine is 1.2kg lighter than the Testastretta twin-cylinder used on the Multistrada 1260.
