Enjoy the details

DRL Headlight, sharp flyline and new generation double-sided swingarm are just a few of the defining design details of the new Multistrada V4.

From the sketch

We immediately worked on aesthetics and dimensions that were not in line with the rest of the segment, maintaining the compact body typical of the Multistrada family, with respect for lines, harmony and large surfaces. Italian style, not fragmented and harmonious.

To visually enhance the overall feeling of solidity we worked on the proportions, on the compactness of the bike body within the wheelbase of the bike. 

To the project

Every detail is designed to combine Italian design and functionality, from the arrows incorporated in the motorbike body, not exposed to shocks in off-road activities, to the redesigned dome to raise the eyes DRL, designing an aggressive look, able to cut the dust, but also to leave the necessary space for the electronic evolution of elements such as the innovative radar. 

Even the turning lights relate to the idea of ​​solidity of the bike. The arrows are integrated into the sides, increasing the volume of the bike and maintaining compactness while remaining protected from small lateral blows. The front radar, in particular, has gone from being a functional part to a characteristic and powerful element of the style of the bike, form follows function.
