    Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally: details

    Building on the success of its popular Multistrada V4 platform, Ducati has unveiled the Multistrada V4 Rally, which promises to go further while keeping the rider and passenger cocooned in greater comfort. To do this, the biggest change Ducati has made is giving the Rally a larger 30-litre fuel tank. On the comfort front, the company has redesigned the front windscreen, making it 40mm taller and 20mm wider than before. Further improvements come in the form of revised luggage mounting points, which are placed further back and therefore increase legroom for the pillion.

    There is also a great deal of new tech on the Multistrada V4 Rally. The cylinder deactivation technology, which previously only functioned at a standstill, can now also deactivate the rear cylinder bank while on the move, and reactivate it on demand. Benefits of this are in the form of better fuel efficiency and less heat thrown onto the rider. 

    Ducati has also increased the suspension travel on the Multistrada V4 Rally to 200mm at both ends, up from 170mm (front) and 180mm (rear) on the Multistrada V4 S. There’s a new larger metal sump guard that offers better coverage to the underbelly of the bike. To accommodate differently sized riders, Ducati offers a wide array of seat and suspension options on the Multistrada V4 Rally, which can alter the seat height from an accessible 805mm to a vertigo-inducing 905mm. Also making this 260kg behemoth more manageable off the tarmac is the new Off-road power mode, which limits power to 115hp. 

    There is also a new red-silver-black colourway on offer on the Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally.

    Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally: price, India launch, rivals

    Considering that Ducati retails nearly its entire range in our country, we expect the Multistrada V4 Rally to make its way here in the coming months. When this bike comes to our shores it will have to contend with some established heavyweights in this category, which include the BMW R 1250 GSA and the Triumph Tiger 1200 Rally Explorer. Expect it to command a significant premium over the Ducati Multistrada V4 S, which currently retails for Rs 24.15 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
