Intuitive agility meets solid stability

“A chassis strategy designed to instill the pure pleasure of control

Davide Previtera, Vehicle Project Engineer 

The new Multistrada V4 reaches new levels of handling, riding fluidity, intuitiveness and ease of use. 

Compact and agile, the frame and chassis have been designed to give an intense feeling of ease of riding and safe stability at high speeds.

19 inches
front wheel

The 19" front wheel ensures a rounded and intuitive ride in sport and touring use, as well as greater control on unpaved roads.

Adaptive soul

Compared to the previous generation, the compactness of the V4 Granturismo engine and the reduced wheelbase make the bike shorter, more agile and with a center of gravity perfectly positioned in the vehicle.

This structure generates an ease of riding that instills safety in every rider, in any riding situation: from long-distance comfort to the pleasure of off-road performance, also enhancing the Ducati sporting DNA. 

Just the pleasure of riding

The new Multistrada V4 has been engineered for maximum riding comfort. Aerodynamics, engine delivery and optimization of the characteristics of the frame combine to achieve excellent values in the field of NVH (Noise and Vibration Harshness).

Ergonomics have also been improved, to ensure a more comfortable seat position for both touring and off-road standing riding. 

Vibration reduction

All chassis balances and engine gears are optimized to reduce vibrations and offer the best possible comfort to the rider and passenger.

Getting on the Multistrada V4 means letting yourself be enveloped by a "bubble of silence", inside which you can comfortably ride with the helmet open even at high speed. Minimal vibrations maximize comfort, especially over long distances, as does engine noise which is kept to a minimum thanks to reduced gearbox allowances. 

Ergonomy for comfort

Saddle, seat profile and leg room have been designed to put any rider at ease. Not all motorcyclists are the same, and when riding a Multistrada it is important to make the experience of every rider comfortable on all types of roads.

Riding position

Thanks to the compact engine, more space has been obtained to mount an adjustable saddle capable of meeting all needs. The saddle was redesigned to be more narrow, with a lean center section to increase control in standing maneuvers and flatter to facilitate longitudinal movements. The narrow central section guarantees ease of touching the ground to riders of all heights, a versatility also increased by the two positions on which the saddle is adjustable.

Passenger comfort

The passenger seat padding has been improved to maximise comfot. First of all has been widened and equipped with more comfortable handles and more leg room, but it is also made thicker (+ 25 mm) and longer (+40 mm).

Sound quality

The exhaust has been perfected both at the level of the manifold and at the level of the terminals by an accurate work of sound quality. The result is a sound that, recalling the classic twin-cylinder, transmits all the sportiness of Ducati DNA, lowering the frequencies that could interfere with the acoustic comfort of the rider and that could be tiring on long journeys.
