YOUR EVERYDAY WONDER
The Ducati Multistrada family continues its evolution with the presentation of the new Multistrada V2: the ideal bike to fully enjoy every route, versatile in everyday use and in the city, always with the sportiness and unmistakable style that characterize every Ducati.
The new twin-cylinder of the family of Ducati dual bikes is a 360° bike, increasingly intuitive, comfortable, fun and accessible, thanks also to the introduction of the 35-kW version for A2 license holders. Multistrada V2 is a technologically advanced motorcycle, with a sophisticated cycling and an extremely complete electronic package, without forgetting the engine, the latest evolution of the 937 cc Testastretta 11° unit, and represents the perfect gateway to the Ducati tourer universe.
During the development phases of this bike the main points of focus were ergonomics, weight reduction, engine updates and a series of upgrades that follow the philosophy of "continuous improvement".
MORE COMFORTABLE, MORE FUN, EASIER TO RIDE
Unmistakeably Multistrada design, with imposing, streamlined shapes. New refined graphics, that show the name of the bike on both sides for an elegant and sporty look at the same time.
Agile and intuitive, the 19" front wheel ensure maximum versatility: a smooth, rounded and relaxing ride that is also precise and effective when needed.
The electronic equipment is extremely complete, especially in the S version. The latest generation of driver assistance systems are effective and never invasive, ensuring safety and comfort in every condition.
Ergonomics have been revised to provide greater accessibility in terms of seat height (830 mm - 790mm) and inseam arch.
The 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine has been lightened and updated in the gearbox and clutch to ensure smoother and more precise running. Now also available in a 35 kW version for A2 licence holders.
5 Kg less than the Multistrada 950 thanks to new engine and vehicle components.
COMFORT, VERSATILITY & FUN
The height has been reduced to 830 mm, with a redesigned shape of the saddle which is now narrower and more compact between the rider's legs to allow you to easily touch the ground with your feet thanks to an inseam arch of only 1790mm.
These changes provide safety when the bike is stationary and improve confidence when manoeuvring at low speed even with a passenger and full cases. Furthermore, in the Ducati Performance catalogue a low seat and a lowered suspension kit are available which, combined, allow you to reach a height of 790mm (available starting from 2022).
In addition, the distance from the seat to the rider's footrest has been increased to 490 mm in order to provide more room for taller riders, who can now ride more comfortably for many hours.
The weight reduction work conducted on the bike has made it possible to obtain a final dry weight of 199 kg (202 kg for the S version), 5 kg less than the Multistrada 950. The engine has lost about 2 kg. Among the vehicle components, the new rims stand out (-1.7 kg), together with the Multistrada V4 mirrors (-0.7 kg) and the front brake disc flanges, now in aluminium (-0.5 kg). In addition, with regard to the wheel rims, new spoked rims are also available as an accessory, also significantly lighter (available starting from 2022). The reduction in weight of the wheel rims guarantees a marked improvement in vehicle dynamics.
The scheme adopted for the chassis of the Multistrada V2 includes a front trellis frame together with two cast side frames, closed off by a rear load-bearing element made of techno-polymer loaded with glass fibre for maximum torsional rigidity, with the addition of the double-sided swingarm made in shell cast aluminium.
SUSPENSIONS & BRAKES
The Multistrada V2 is equipped with a 48 mm diameter upside-down front fork with170 mm travel, dedicated cast end caps, adjustable in spring preload and hydraulic brake in rebound and compression.
The spring is progressive, with a consequent increase in riding comfort even with the vehicle fully loaded. The rear wheel travel is 170 mm. In the S version, Multistrada V2 ’å dotata di serie anche del Ducati Skyhook Suspension EVO semi-active suspension system, which is based on a 48 mm SACHS fork and a SACHS rear shock absorber, both electronic, with the possibility of adjusting the hydraulic brake in compression and extension in a continuous manner according to a semi-active control approach capable of guaranteeing the ideal set-up of the vehicle, improving safety and comfort.
The entire Multistrada V2 family is equipped with Brembo brakes with ABS Cornering function. The front system features Brembo M4-32 monobloc radial calipers with four 32 mm diameter pistons and two pads, radial pump with adjustable levers and double 320 mm front disc with aluminium flanges. At the rear we can find a single 265 mm diameter disc on which a floating caliper, also Brembo, works.
POWER & TORQUE ALWAYS UNDER CONTROLS
The Multistrada V2 is driven by the last evolution of the well-known and much-loved 937 cc Ducati Testastretta 11° twin-cylinder with desmodromic distribution, that delivers 113 horsepower at 9.000 rpm and a maximum torque of 94 Nm at 6.750 rpm in Euro 5* configuration, combining an excellent level of performance and adrenaline with a regular and always manageable power delivery.
The engine has been lightened and updated in the gearbox and clutch, in order to guarantee greater fluidity and precision in shifting, also facilitating the engagement of neutral. Reliable and strong, Testastretta 11° has extended maintenance intervals, with oil change every 15,000 km and valve clearance check every 30,000 km.
Multistrada V2 is also available in the 35-kW version for A2 license holders, an absolute firs for the Multistrada family.
*Only in countries where the Euro 5 legislation is in force
The engine of the Multistrada V2 is the last evolution of the twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta 11° da 937 cc with desmodromic distribution. This engine, four valves per cylinder, water-cooled, delivers 113 horsepower and approximately 10 kgm of maximum torque in Euro 5* configuration, features an excellent level of reliability and the ability to combine performance and adrenaline with a regular and always manageable power delivery, putting a sports bike that is never aggressive in the hands of the rider.
CLUTCH & GEARBOX
New 8-disc hydraulic clutch and an updated gearbox, which guarantees greater fluidity and precision in shifting, also facilitating the engagement of neutral. An even more appreciable progress in use in conjunction with the quick shifter, now with a further optimized operating strategy.
The interventions on the gearbox and clutch, together with the introduction of new connecting rods and new covers, have also brought about a reduction in the total weight of the engine of about 2 kg.
UNCOMPROMISING ELECTRONICS & CONTROL
Safety, comfort and performance of the Multistrada V2 are also guaranteed by state-of-the-art electronic assistance systems. In the S version, the journey becomes 5-star thanks to a benchmark full-optional package for the segment to which it belongs.
The Multistrada V2 features four Riding Modes (Sport, Touring, Urban, Enduro) that act on the riding aid systems, engine mapping and Skyhook suspension (for the S version), making the character of the bike completely customisable.
The Bosch's 6-axis inertial platform IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) allows for the Cornering operation of the ABS, i.e. variable depending on the bend angle.
The dashboard of the Multistrada V2 consists of a large, high-visibility LCD. The S version, on the other hand, features a high resolution 5" colour TFT display, with an intuitive interface that makes it easy to navigate the menu. Both versions integrate with the Ducati Multimedia System.
The Multistrada V2 sports an aggressive design lamp front headlight, typical of the motorcycles of the Multistrada family. At the rear there is an LED tail-light, which uses the Ducati Brake Light system (already developed on the Multistrada V4): in the event of violent braking, this system automatically activates the flashing of the rear light in order to appropriately signal an abrupt slowdown to the following vehicles, thus contributing to the overall safety of the motorcycle.
In the S version, the headlamp is full-LED, equipped with the Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL) function which optimizes the lighting of the roadway when cornering based on the inclination of the motorcycle.
The Ducati Traction Control (DTC) of the Multistrada V2 is adjustable on eight levels, while ABS Cornering is adjustable on three and at level 1 it offers "only front" (non-cornering) functionality. The Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) system helps the rider in uphill starting phases. It activates when the user, with the motorcycle stationary and with the side stand retracted, applies high pressure on the front brake lever or on the rear brake pedal and is able to keep the vehicle stationary by actively intervening on the rear brake.
