"Touring", thanks to the main maintenance interval at 60.000 km, the special attention paid to driving comfort, the completely new radar systems front and rear, the new fully networked navigation system, which is displayed directly on the dashboard, and the cornering lights. "Enduro", thanks to the extraordinary off-road capability, the electronic suspension, the smooth delivery and the gear ratio. Finally, the Multistrada V4 shows its “urban” character with unprecedented handling at low speeds, which is combined with a connectivity system at the highest level and thermal comfort.

"Multi-Strada" = "many streets"

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 24 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

Multistrada, its name has an ambitious promise: the ability to master “many streets” (to be precise, “multi” in Italian means “many”, so “Multi-Strada” means “many streets”). Originally born to demonstrate a sporty attitude, today it is a versatile machine that is able to master all road conditions while integrating properties such as safety and robustness. More than 18 units have been produced in 110.000 years and since its launch in 2003, the Multistrada has steadily evolved and expanded its calling. The first Multistrada was designed as a sports motorcycle, which is characterized by excellent torque and is particularly suitable for use on the road. The 2010 version was the first “four motorcycles in one” motorcycle, ie the first motorcycle in the world with Riding Modes that offered more comfort for rider and passenger, better aerodynamic protection and higher performance compared to the 2003 version . In 2015, the motorcycle was equipped with the first engine with variable valve timing to improve throttle response.

The fourth generation of the Multistrada has become an even more powerful motorcycle. In short, easier to drive, more robust and ultra-light, more versatile and comfortable, but still effective in every single driving situation. It is clear that Ducati wanted the Multistrada V4 to be an unrivaled powerful motorcycle. Like other motorcycles in the Multistrada family, the V4 is available with the "4Ever Multistrada" guarantee, a 4-year guarantee with unlimited mileage.

Ducati Multistrada V4 - form follows function

In all Ducati models, including the Multistrada V4, form is always associated with intended function. Because of this, the design work behind this project was influenced by their technical soul. A clear example of this principle is the perfect integration of the front and rear radar systems into the lines of the motorcycle, where wide surfaces fluidly reflect the aerodynamics and innovations in the chassis set-up to achieve a robust yet refined aesthetic result. In order to visually enhance the solid overall impression of the vehicle without attaching too much weight to the forms, the Ducati team has tried to achieve the perfect balance between proportions and compactness of the body within the wheelbase. The front headlights with the Panigale-inspired DRL system make the Multistrada V4 very sporty and immediately recognizable.

The unbalanced vehicle proportions at the front with its muscular yet sexy lines, which are perfectly integrated into the 22-liter tank, mix with the slim rear section, which enables an optimal position when standing, even when adventuring off-road. Once again, form and function are protagonists in the meticulous studies of aerodynamic flows. Every single element of the front section, from the Plexiglas cladding to the "beak" to the ventilation slots, was designed in such a way that the driver is offered the highest level of aerodynamic and thermal comfort. Even the smallest aerodynamic attachments that help dissipate heat from the rider's legs perform this function.

The core

The engine is the beating heart of the motorcycle. Extremely light (66,7 kg), ultra-compact and unrivaled in its category, the brand new V4 Granturismo engine guarantees extremely smooth running at low speeds and a linear torque curve.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 30 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

The 1158 cc V4 Granturismo engine delivers 125 kW (170 hp) at 10.500 rpm and a maximum torque of 125 Nm (12,7 kg) at 8.750 rpm. The torque curve guarantees maximum smoothness and progressive power delivery even when fully loaded and conveys the appealing feeling of a real "immediate throttle response". In order to achieve this goal, great attention was paid to the torque curve provided for each gear in order to always achieve a fluid power output in the lower speed range, high torque in the medium speed range and a sporty, unstoppable character in the upper speed range. In addition, Ducati engineers also focused on the gear ratio. With a short first gear, it is ideal for driving and maneuvering at extremely low speeds, for driving uphill even with a full load and for off-road sections. Sixth gear, on the other hand, is ideal for handling long journeys on the motorway.

Ducati's constant consideration of customer needs is also underlined by a significant extension of the maintenance intervals. In the Multistrada V4, for example, the oil only needs to be changed every 15.000 km, while the valve clearance is checked or adjusted, if necessary, every 60.000 km. No other production bike currently available on the market goes this far.

The V4 Granturismo engine was developed for use on the road and, if necessary, also uses all the technical advantages that Ducati has developed over years of experience in the world of competition. This includes the counter-rotating crankshaft, which works “against” the inertia generated by the wheels, improves handling, reduces rocking and thus improves efficiency and driving pleasure on the road.

State-of-the-art electronics

In the field of electronics, the Multistrada V4 represents the state of the art in motorcycle technology. This also applies to safety, comfort, performance and connectivity. The inertia platform (IMU) controls the function of the cornering ABS, the Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), the Ducati traction control (DTC) in the "cornering" version and on the Multistrada V4 S the cornering lights (DCL). Another standard feature of the Multistrada V4 S is the Vehicle Hold Control (VHC), which makes it easier to start again, especially on inclines. On the Multistrada V4 S, the inertial platform also communicates with the semi-active Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) system. The latter is not only able to analyze the driving conditions and adjust the hydraulics of the fork and shock absorber immediately, it also integrates the auto-leveling function for the first time. This recognizes the load on the motorcycle and then automatically adjusts the setting and is offered in addition to the options already available: driver, driver with luggage, driver with passenger or the driver with passenger and luggage. The tire pressure monitoring system is also available as an option for the Multistrada V4.

In order to further improve the driving experience for the customer, the Ducati technicians have created both the user interface and the graphics of the dashboard (now multilingual), which on the Multistrada V4 S is equipped with an adjustable 6,5-inch TFT unit , completely revised. In addition, a joystick has been added to the left control panel of the S version to ensure easy navigation through the new and intuitive menu. Other innovations include the Ducati Connect system, which enables the mobile phone app to be "mirrored" on the dashboard via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and control via the joystick. Telephone and music management is intuitive, while the driver can use the Sygic navigation app to visualize the navigation system's map directly on the dashboard. Finally, a compartment was created in the upper area of ​​the tank, accessible via a small opening in the lid, in which the smartphone can be stored and charged via a USB port.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 26 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

Thanks to the Multistrada V4, Ducati is also introducing an absolute novelty in the world of motorcycles: the revolutionary radar system that enables the use of adaptive cruise control (ACC) and blind spot detection (BSD). Radars are advanced assistance systems that Ducati has developed in close cooperation with a top-class technology partner such as Bosch. These are systems that, thanks to the ability to reconstruct the surroundings of the motorcycle, support driving and make it even more comfortable.

Powerful, comfortable, intuitive

The Multistrada V4 is equipped with an aluminum monocoque frame, a 19-inch front wheel and a double-sided swing arm and is also available with spoked wheels. It has a reduced wheelbase (1.567 mm), a sporty front section, suspension with long travel (170 mm front - 180 mm rear), a ground clearance of 220 mm and a dry weight of 215 kg. All of this enables the Multistrada V4 to act intuitively and effectively in the curves like an authentic Ducati and at the same time enable simple and versatile driving both on the road and off-road. For this reason, with the Multistrada V4 every trip becomes a wonderful adventure, accessible to everyone at any time.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 37 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

Driving pleasure and a high level of comfort are achieved thanks to Ducati's careful study of the driving position. Compared to earlier Multistrada models, the driver is now even more of a protagonist with a more “dominant” seating position. The middle part of the motorcycle is particularly narrow and enables an ideal riding position, even when riding in a standing position. The new ergonomics also provide stable support when the rider puts their feet on the ground, so that it is easier to maneuver the motorcycle when it is stationary. For this reason, a lot of attention was paid during the design phase to achieve a reduced seat height, adjustable in two positions, 840 mm and 860 mm (810 mm with a lower seat and 875 mm with a high seat are also available as accessories ). This added value is particularly important for maneuvers at low speed, even under full load, also because the new Multistrada V4 can be loaded with over 230 kg.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 34 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

To maximize driving comfort on long motorway journeys, Ducati engineers turned their attention to what is known in the automotive world as Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH), which is basically a measure of the comfort a vehicle offers while driving . For the Multistrada V4 project, a detailed aerodynamic study was carried out in the wind tunnel in order to achieve the best wind protection for driver and front passenger, to reduce noise and to dissipate the heat coming from the engine. The result is a plexiglass windshield with a beautiful silhouette, which can be adjusted in height with a single finger and is combined with two side wind deflectors. From the shape of the hand guards to the entire wind protection, every aspect has been examined in detail. Likewise the sound of the engine, which is gentle yet rich and is characterized by the exclusive Ducati soundtrack. The V4 Granturismo engine also pursues the strategy of deactivating the rear cylinder bank when idling. In this way, when the motorcycle is stopped at the traffic lights, the rear cylinder bank is deactivated (there is no combustion in the cylinders), which improves thermal comfort for the driver and front passenger thanks to the lower temperatures and lower consumption. All of this, together with the very low level of vibration, makes even the longest journey more comfortable and less tiring, whether alone or as a couple. In addition, with the constant aim of maximizing comfort, heated handles and, in addition, heated seats for driver and front passenger (as accessories) are still available.

Equipment and accessories

With the introduction of the new Multistrada V4, which is also available in the S and S Sport versions (both with spoked wheels on request), Ducati also wants to improve the buying process. The customer is free to order the new Multistrada V4 already equipped and embellished with exclusive parts and to personalize it according to his own style and needs. In short, the bike is built right at the Ducati factory in Borgo Panigale with the necessary equipment, while accessory packages are still available from Ducati dealers. The new Multistrada, it has never been so easy to rule all streets.

Design

New, different and yet unmistakable. While the new V4 is immediately recognizable as a Multistrada, it also marks a change of direction not only in terms of engine and technology, but also in terms of design. The brand new V4 Granturismo engine, the monocoque frame, the 19-inch front wheel and its elegant, "robust" appearance give the new Multistrada V4 an unusual perspective in the field of maxi enduros. While the design is based closely on the first “cult” Multistrada (mass at the front, extremely sleek rear section and ultra-compact front), the new Multistrada V4 pushes the boundaries exactly where the driver, machine and technology form a perfect whole.

The Ducati designers put their main focus on clear and slim lines. With the Multistrada V4, design and functionality are perfectly combined to offer outstanding functionality. This means that thanks to the narrow seat, which is positioned in the area of ​​the legs, the drivers can put their feet more easily on the ground and can therefore move easily even while standing. The Multistrada V4 impresses with its refined silhouette and is at the same time able to speak the language of adventure and passion for long-distance driving.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 5 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

The new Multistrada V4 takes one of the main principles of the Multistrada to the next level. Each of the four souls with their riding modes (Sport, Touring, Urban, Enduro) is not only represented by the specific engine character and the set-up, but also defined from the point of view of design. The Multistrada V4 comes with robust side panels to support the Enduro driving style. It's also agile to please the sportiest of enthusiasts, not to mention the fact that it comes with panniers with built-in fastenings, an extra protective windshield, and comfortable seats to tackle even long adventure drives. In short, it's the “Most Multi” of all time.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 7 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

The result was achieved by converting all technical and functional elements into design features. The work of the designers also focused on perfectly integrating every single component of the motorcycle. From the front and rear radar to the aerodynamic attachments, from the plexiglass screen to the dashboard, from the controls on the handlebars to the compartment for storing and charging the smartphone: every single detail has been developed to make one of the most technologically advanced motorcycles that ever built to breathe life.

The dashboard reflects the new performance and functional concept behind the Multistrada. A wide-readable display, never more completely inspired by the aeronautical dashboards, which contain a huge amount of information, are instantly readable and can thus prevent distractions while driving.
The stylistic features that make the new V4 immediately recognizable as a Multistrada have been retained, based on the twin headlights. While it now features a new DRL design, together with the Panigale V4 it also creates a strong family feel, a distinctive feature that makes every Ducati in this segment distinctive.

Form meets function even in extensive research into aerodynamic flows. Every single element of the front, from the plexiglass windshield to the "beak" to the ventilation slots, was designed in such a way that the driver receives maximum aerodynamic and thermal comfort. Even the small aerodynamic appendages that help draw heat away from the rider's legs do this job.

In keeping with the Ducati philosophy, the new lines of the Multistrada V4 appear clean and clear and at the same time gain the robust charm that every maxi enduro must exude. Its appealing touch is also underlined by the rear “bare” subframe, which was inspired by professional off-road motorcycles. Here, however, there is once again an aggressive look, combined with a special focus on functionality through the integration of the add-on parts for the solution of the side pockets.

Technological TFT display

The Multistrada V4 is equipped with a 5 ″ TFT display with optimal resolution and perfect readability in all lighting conditions. The easy-to-read graphic features a circular digital tachometer that shows the number of gears and other useful information such as fuel gauge, temperature and engine temperature, while the panels show the various levels of electronic controls and other information. Navigating through the menu is straightforward thanks to a graphic layout that immediately recognizes which setting the driver is about to change. In addition, the user can access the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) via Bluetooth to manage incoming / outgoing calls and listen to music.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 1 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

The Multistrada V4 S, on the other hand, impresses with its 6,5-inch TFT display. It is made of mineral glass, the same material that is used in modern smartphones, and serves a dual purpose: improving visibility even in direct sunlight and reducing reflections. It displays additional information, such as the suspension settings, and also provides the map of the navigation system via the Sygic GPS navigation app. This is thanks to the phone's “mirroring” function, which allows you to check the phone book, answer incoming calls more easily and listen to music. The brand new left control element enables an even easier and faster menu navigation. The driving modes can be selected thanks to the new “mode” button, while the management of the adaptive cruise control is entrusted to the classic button, to which the + and - buttons have been added. These are used to increase or decrease the distance that the driver would like to keep from the vehicle in front. In addition, the suspension setting is managed via this button, identified by a stylized shock absorber, and the selected mode is then displayed below that of the selected driving mode.

In order to keep the driver's smartphone under control and to charge it at all times, a storage space for a USB port has been created above the tank, which is accessible via a small flap. There is also another 12V socket on the right side of the dashboard.

Hands-free ignition

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 31 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

The Multistrada V4 uses a hands-free starting system that guarantees the best safety standards. Thanks to this system, the driver can comfortably keep the key in his pocket and start the engine with the button provided, which is located directly behind the handlebar plate. The motorcycle recognizes the key and thus enables the steering wheel lock to be unlocked (activated by an electric actuator) and the engine to be started. To open the tank, the mechanical “folding key” is used, which is integrated in the same transponder that also contains the electronic key. A keyless fuel cap is optionally available as an accessory.

Riding fashion sport

The “Sport” riding mode, which is most suitable for the road, offers an exciting 170 hp combined with a sporty chassis set-up (only for the S version). Sport mode is also characterized by a low level of Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Wheelie Control as well as an ABS setting of level 2, which enables the rear wheel to be raised in a controlled manner in order to maximize braking performance but also to maintain cornering function. This riding mode is the right choice for professional riders who want to get the most out of this impressive Multistrada V4.

Riding Mode Touring

In “Touring” riding mode, Ducati offers the engine's full 170 hp with a softer, less direct throttle response. Active safety is enhanced by higher DTC and DWC sensitivity levels. The ABS is set to level 3, perfect for touring mode; this switches on the rear wheel lift detection and the cornering ABS function, while at the same time the combined front / rear braking is optimized. For the S versions, a suspension setup is chosen that is perfect for long-distance journeys and ensures maximum comfort for the driver and front passenger.

Riding fashion urban

In the “Urban” riding mode, the power is reduced to a maximum of 115 hp. The suspension of the S versions is set for optimal agility in the case of frequent urban traffic obstacles with corresponding DSS mapping. DTC and DWC are set to high values ​​for maximum safety. The ABS is set to level 3.

Riding mode Enduro

Thanks to the introduction of the 19-inch wheel, the Multistrada V4 is even more comfortable to ride off-road. The positioning of the center of gravity, the weight distribution and finally the ergonomics were developed to support riding while stationary and make the Multistrada V4 a real off-road motorcycle. In addition, the “Enduro” riding mode sets the engine output to a maximum of 115 hp, with all-terrain suspension settings and DSS mapping for the S versions. The DTC and DWC settings are lowered and the ABS is set to level 1, which is suitable for off-road use on non-slip surfaces: the rear wheel lift detection and the cornering function are switched off, and the ABS on the rear wheel is also deactivated.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 29 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)

The DTC is an important part of the Ducati Safety Pack. The system has been further developed and now integrates data coming from the IMU platform in order to efficiently control loss of grip and the bank angle. In just a few thousandths of a second, the DTC can use the data from the sensors to detect and control spinning of the rear wheels, which significantly improves performance and active safety. The system allows the user to choose between eight different levels. Each of these levels is programmed to provide a rear wheel spin tolerance that corresponds to the progressive levels of driveability (classification from 1 to 8).

Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC)

This system, which is perfectly integrated into the Ducati Riding Modes, offers eight settings. It analyzes the driving behavior of the motorcycle; it detects every lift of the front wheel and controls torque and power to achieve maximum and safe acceleration.

Bosch Brembo brake system with ABS curve system

The Multistrada V4 range is equipped with the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), which includes a Brembo braking system with Bosch 10.3 ME cornering ABS that is adjustable in three stages. Cornering ABS uses the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform from Bosch, which communicates data on lean angles in real time. All this in order to optimize the front and rear braking force on both wheels, even when the motorcycle is on a steep lean, and thus to prevent serious accidents. By interacting with the Riding Modes, the system offers uncompromising solutions regardless of the situation or riding conditions.

Thanks to the ABS control processor, the Multistrada V4 uses a combined braking system. This system is optimized for the riding modes "Urban" and "Touring". In “Sport” riding mode, where combined braking is less desirable, the system has a lower level of interaction. The combined braking system increases stability by using four pressure sensors to optimally distribute the braking force between the front and rear wheels.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 41 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

Developed to increase the control of the rear tire during hard braking maneuvers, the detection of the raised rear wheel is fully activated in the riding modes “Urban” and “Touring”, in the riding mode “Sport” the ABS is regulated while it is in use is deactivated in “Enduro” riding mode. The ABS can also only be used on the front wheel, as is the case in enduro mode. This then enables the rear wheel to lock and thus also allows drifting off-road. The ABS can also be completely deactivated in the "Enduro" riding mode via the instrument display. The settings can be saved and called up again the next time you drive.

The system is perfectly integrated into the Ducati Riding Modes and has three levels. Level 2 ensures the balance between the front and rear wheels without the detection of off-turning rear wheels, but with the cornering function switched on and calibrated for a sporty driving style. Level 3 enables the optimal function of the combined braking effect in the riding modes Touring and Urban with limited rear wheel lift for maximum safety and performance and with activated and calibrated cornering function for maximum safety. Finally, Level 1 maximizes off-road performance by disabling rear wheel lift detection and allowing the rear wheel to lock, with ABS only being used on the front wheel.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 35 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

The front brake system of the Multistrada V4 has radially mounted monoblock 4-piston brake calipers from Brembo with pistons of 32 mm diameter and 2 brake pads, a radial master cylinder with adjustable levers and two 320 mm discs. At the rear is a single disc with a diameter of 265 mm, which is held by a floating brake caliper, also from Brembo. This arrangement of components ensures top performance in the entire motorsport panorama and is a well-known characteristic of Ducati. In the Multistrada V4 S, the braking system makes full use of the 330 mm front discs in combination with the monoblock brake calipers from Brembo Stylema.

Vehicle Hold Control (hill start aid)

The new Ducati Multistrada V4 is offered with the most modern generation of Bosch 10.3 ME ABS with Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) system. When activated, the VHC keeps the vehicle stable by braking the rear wheels. This makes it easier for the driver, in particular, to start off in critical situations, for example on inclines, since the brake pressure is regulated during start-up so that the driver can concentrate on operating the accelerator and clutch. If the system is not used, it is automatically deactivated after 30 seconds.

Radar technology

The Ducati Multistrada V4 is the world's first production motorcycle with radar technology. Radar devices are advanced assistance systems that reconstruct the motorcycle's surroundings and make driving easier by actively supporting the driver. This technological solution fulfills two functions: adaptive cruise control and detection of the blind spot.
The introduction of the two systems is part of the revolution that represents a further level of excellence in terms of comfort and driver assistance, especially when driving long distances on the motorway.

It should be emphasized that adaptive intelligent systems are only a driving aid for the driver of the vehicle and must always be kept under control and adjusted by the driver. These modern systems are not autonomous driving systems and therefore do not replace the driver. Ducati always strives for safety on the road and on the racetrack and emphasizes that the driver is and remains responsible for driving and must always behave carefully and appropriately for the various situations in the environment.

Adaptive Cruise Control

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 42 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

The radar system positioned in front of the vehicle controls the operation of the adaptive cruise control ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control), which uses controlled braking and acceleration to automatically adjust the distance to other vehicles, which can be selected in four stages, at speeds between 30 and 160 km / h. This system, derived from the car, has been adapted to the dynamics and ergonomics of a motorcycle and further developed. In particular, the autonomy of the system in terms of braking and acceleration has been limited to ensure that the driver can maintain control of the vehicle in any situation. The adaptive cruise control (ACC) system can be set using the corresponding buttons on the left switch. Thanks to the Ducati Quick Shift Up & Down, the driver can shift up or down during the acceleration and braking phases without deactivating the ACC. The ACC system enables more comfortable and safer driving, especially on long sections of the motorway.

Blind Spot Detection (blind spot detection)

The rear radar, which is mounted under the rear light, detects vehicles that are in the so-called blind spot, ie in the area that is neither directly visible to the driver nor through the rearview mirror. The BSD (Blind Spot Detection) system registers this blind spot and informs the driver of it using the LEDs on the rear-view mirrors. In addition, the BSD system also detects vehicles approaching from behind at high speed. If, in both of these cases, the driver presses the turn signal indicating the intention to change lanes, the BSD LED in the rearview mirror flashes, signaling a potentially dangerous situation. Thanks to its own menu, the driver can set the brightness of the system in three different levels.

frame

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 40 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

The unique chassis structure consists of an aluminum monocoque frame, a real highlight in the entire segment. An extremely light and compact structure that perfectly integrates the recently introduced V4 Granturismo engine. The new Multistrada V4 owes maximum precision when turning into and out of bends as well as an immediate response behavior to the 24,5 ° steering head angle. The swingarm has been almost completely redesigned by adding a lightweight lattice frame as well. The double-sided swing arm solution not only contributes to stability and lightness, but also makes the Multistrada V4 even more efficient.

landing gear

The Multistrada 1260 is supplied with a 50 mm upside-down fork, which is fully adjustable in spring preload, compression and rebound. The rear wheel is equipped with a Marzocchi monoshock that connects the swing arm to the frame: The spring preload can be adjusted remotely via a hydraulic system, as can the damping of the suspension in rebound and compression. The spring works progressively and therefore offers excellent driving comfort even when fully loaded.

The Multistrada V4 S is instead equipped with the semi-active suspension system from Marzocchi, which is controlled by the Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evolution system (DSS EVO). The latter also enables the preload and hydraulic brakes to be adjusted when the rear shock absorber is compressed and rebounded. The fine tuning is done immediately and is integrated into the Riding Modes or can be personalized via the on-board computer. The semi-active system has an interface to the sensors in order to "read" the driving style and the road surface and to continuously adjust the setting. This means a perfect setup in all conditions, on the road and also fully loaded.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA V4 2021 Tuning 45 New model: The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 Enduro!

The Multistrada V4 series has 170 mm of travel at the front and 180 mm at the rear, a particularly generous suspension system which, in conjunction with the frame layout and the shape of the oil pan, guarantees an impressive ground clearance of 220 mm. The result? Above-average driving comfort! A feature that is even better with the Multistrada V4 S thanks to the DSS EVO, with which the driver can adjust the basic setting depending on the load. For the first time, this system also integrates the automatic level control, the so-called auto-leveling function. This recognizes the load on the motorcycle and then automatically adjusts the setting. It is offered in addition to the options already available: driver only, driver with luggage, driver with passenger or driver with passenger and luggage. The tire pressure monitoring system is also available as an accessory for the Multistrada V4.

Tires and rims

The Multistrada V4 and V4 S are equipped with cast light alloy wheels. Both are equipped with 3,0 x 19 "front wheel rims and 4,5 x 17" rear wheel rims, on which a Pirelli SCORPION ™ Trail II tire measuring 120 / 70-19 "at the front and 170 / 60-17" at the rear is mounted. The Pirelli SCORPION ™ Rally and SCORPION ™ STR are also approved for the Multistrada V4, with a 120 / 70-19 "tire at the front and a 170 / 60-17" tire at the rear. The Multistrada V4 S is also available ex works with wire rims.
