Aerodynamics and NVH

Shaped for absolute comfort

“We channeled all the Ducati aerodynamics knowledge on comfort and stability"

  Davide Previtera, Vehicle Project Engineer  


Ducati Corse's innovative aerodynamics research has been harnessed to allow for the most comfortable travel experience. 

The aerodynamic control allows to minimize the exposure to the front air and to divert hot flows away from the rider, ensuring the most complete protection and comfort.

Adjustable dynamic

So simple, yet so advanced. The windshield is equipped with adjustable winglets and shaped for maximum protection.

Wind cooler

Side aerodynamic bypass help deviating and controlling the air flow around the rider to improve the overall comfort.

Aerodynamic split

Redesign of the positioning of the front radiators to maximize aerodynamic efficiency.

Front Winglets

Increase stability with vertical load and improve thermic comfort by deviating the radiators’ hot air away from the rider.

Slice through the wind

Aerodynamic research has explored every bit of the bike’s profile to maximise rider’s protection. 

The beak, the fairing, the shoulders of the tank and the exit of the bypass radiators have been examined in order not to let flows of hot air fall on the rider and to protect it in general to maximize the coverage of the rider and a better penetration into the air that results in comfort and lower consumption. 

Thermic comfort

Aerodynamic research plays a crucial role in maintining the perfect thermic comfort too: front winglets and bypass design keep the radiators’ hot air flow away from the rider, channeling fresh air and granting the perfect temperature. 

Thermic comfort is also supported by the engine rear cylinder deactivation.

This specific function, taken from the Desmosedici Stradale model, is triggered when the engine is running at low speed, shutting off the rear bank, the one closest to the seat, improving comfort for both rider and passenger, thanks to the decrease in temperatures whilst optimising consumptions. 

Vibration control and acoustic comfort

All aspects of the frame and engine components are optimized to offer the best possible comfort for the rider.

The engineer team acted massively, to reduce gear play to the max and cut down signficantly the noise generated by the engine.

Getting on the Multistrada V4 means letting yourself be enveloped by a “bubble of silence”, inside which you can drive “with an open helmet” even at high speeds. The minimum vibrations maximize comfort, especially over long distances, as does the engine noise, which is kept to a minimum thanks to the reduction of the gear play.
