Accessibility and distinctiveness are values that have long guided the design of every bike in the Multistrada family. With the new Multistrada V2, design and ergonomics are combined to ensure the ultimate functionality of forms, while respecting the family feeling and highlighting the beauty with sophisticated and exclusive elements.
We talked more about this with Andrea Amato, Senior Designer at the Ducati Centro Stile.
Ease of use is fundamental when it comes to this bike. An approach that has steered development towards the pursuit of solutions that allow for greater freedom of movement and therefore greater confidence with the bike.
“We have gone for balance in terms of our style and ergonomic choices. A concept that we have tried to promote by working on the development of the new seat and tail, updated to improve both ergonomics and comfort.
The Multistrada V2 is further enhanced with new rear-view mirrors, new lightweight alloy wheels, and brake discs complete with aluminium flange, refined components inspired by the Multistrada V4 that, as well as emphasising the family feeling, allow for a 2.9 kg weight saving, which contributes to an overall saving of 5 kg with respect to the previous model. A reduction that translates into better handling for the rider.”
Comfortable sure, but also stable and reliable. For this reason, certain details have been revised to ensure greater resistance in potentially critical situations.
“We’ve paid particular attention to a few specific parts. Like the new engine covers and the assembly of the brake and clutch reservoirs, which are separated by the hand guards so as to increase the bike’s robustness even if a hand guard were to accidently break.”
But the eye plays its part and the new Multistrada V2 is not short on appeal, flaunting a distinctive new livery.
“The new Multistrada V2 gains sophisticated new graphics that bear the name of the bike on both sides. Its colour schemes are the classic “Ducati Red” paired with black wheels and the new “Street Grey” livery with black frame and “GP Red” wheels, available for the S version.”
