THE HEART IS THE STRONGEST MUSCLE
THE ENGINE COMES FROM AN INTENSE TEAMWORK ON DELIVERY SMOOTHNESS
Lightness and compactness, fluidity and regularity, durability and comfort. These are the pillars that define the innovative strength of the new V4 Granturismo.
A paradigm shift designed to elevate Ducati sportiness towards new horizons of usability and solidity.
4 IS LIGHTER THAN 2
A V4 engine which is 1.2 Kg lighter and more compact compared to the previous V2 Multistrada generation engine. An achievement that guarantees effective and reliable performance.
THE POWER IS SMOOTH
Up to 170 hp to achieve slick and smooth-running performance on demand. A smooth engine at low speed, great torque at medium speed and sporting spirit at high speed.
BUILT TO TRAVEL FAR
The 60,000 km valve clearance adjustment interval is an absolute milestone that raises the standard of reliability and reduces maintenance costs.
THE FUTURE SOUNDS FAMILIAR
Signature twin-pulse firing order and MotoGP derived counter-rotating crankshaft make the new V4 Granturismo engine more Ducati than ever.
60,000KM OF FREEDOM
60,000 km: 1.5 times the earth’s circumference.
This is the interval for checking valve clearance. This is the value that describes the robustness and durability of this new engine. A figure that for the rider means above all one thing: more time to enjoy in the saddle.
The know-how developed on the desmodromic system, applied to the spring distribution, allows the valve clearance check interval to be extended to 60,000 km, compared to an industry average of 25,000 km, less than half.
No detail has been overlooked in the engine design. The gearbox is also totally dedicated with ratios that make it more versatile. A shorter first gear and a longer sixth gear than the Desmosedici Stradale engine, allow the bike to be adaptable in all situations of use: from off-road, to low-speed manoeuvres to riding on the motorway.
The adoption of the counter-rotating crankshaft - borrowed from the Desmosedici Stradale - allows to significantly reduce the gyroscopic effect that the wheels impart to the vehicle, improving handling and agility and reducing pitching during acceleration and braking. This technical choice improves riding safety and comfort in daily road use or traveling.
FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION
“The work on the design of the Multistrada V4 was strongly influenced by its technical soul."
Andrea Amato, Product Design Leader
Shaped by comfort, robustness and aerodynamic innovations, the design of the new Multistrada V4 is the encounter between functionality and Italian design.
Signature DRL headlight confers to the new Multistrada V4 the unmistakable Ducati family feeling.
Multistrada V4 improves the family’s sporty and handling-oriented. The 22l muscular tank and the compact chassis proportions make its flyline unique.
THE STYLE OF ROBUSTNESS
Designed for heavy use. Built-in turning signals, new generation rear swingarm and subframe. Every detail of the new Multistrada V4 speaks of solidity.
Hi-tech inside and out. The rear lights and the DRL projector, the radar and the large TFT dashboard give the new Multistrada V4 a technological equipment that intensely characterizes its look.
ENJOY THE DETAILS
DRL Headlight, sharp flyline and new generation double-sided swingarm are just a few of the defining design details of the new Multistrada V4.
The new Ducati-feeling FullLED cornering DRL headlight carves the imposing stare of the Multistrada V4 dominant look.
Aerodynamics shapes the new design of the Multistrada V4 both to increase stability and to ensure thermal and aerodynamic comfort in all riding conditions.
Like every Ducati, the Multistrada V4 is modelled around the rider, to instil the feeling of greater control and riding pleasure.
FROM THE SKETCH
We immediately worked on aesthetics and dimensions that were not in line with the rest of the segment, maintaining the compact body typical of the Multistrada family, with respect for lines, harmony and large surfaces. Italian style, not fragmented and harmonious.
To visually enhance the overall feeling of solidity, we worked on the compactness of the proportions, keeping the masses within the wheelbase.
TO THE PROJECT
Every detail is designed to combine Italian design and functionality, from the arrows incorporated in the motorbike body, not exposed to shocks in off-road activities, to the redesigned dome to raise the eyes DRL, designing an aggressive look, able to cut the dust, but also to leave the necessary space for the electronic evolution of elements such as the innovative radar.
Even the turning lights relate to the idea of solidity of the bike. The arrows are integrated into the sides, increasing the volume of the bike and maintaining compactness while remaining protected from small lateral blows. The front radar, in particular, has gone from being a functional part to a characteristic and powerful element of the style of the bike, form follows function.
SHAPED FOR ABSOLUTE COMFORT
“We channelled 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 MULTI-ELEMENT WINDSHIELD
So simple, yet so advanced. The windscreen is equipped with side deflectors for maximum protection. An ergonomic system adjustable in height simply with a finger (patent pending).
The internal aerodynamic bypass (02B) helps to create a jet of fresh air capable of diverting the flow of hot air exiting the radiators around the rider to improve thermal comfort. The external one (02A) draws air from the front of the vehicle to cool the rider's seat area.
SIDE RADIATOR VENTS
The position of the front radiators has been designed to allow for optimal vehicle weight distribution: the fins on the side of the radiator cooling ducts allows for maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
The pair of turning vanes under the fairings allows to increase the flow of fresh air to the rider, maximizing thermal comfort and generating vertical load which is essential for vehicle stability.
SLICE THROUGH THE WIND
Aerodynamic research has studied every aspect of the internal and external surface of the bike to maximize the protection of the rider and passenger.
The beak (with the front wing – 05), the fairing, the "shoulders" of the tank and the exit of the bypass ducts of the radiators were analysed to reduce the air pressure on the pilot and the related vibrations.
An aerodynamic configuration that maximizes rider and passenger coverage and reduces uncomfortable and noisy turbulence.
Aerodynamic research plays a crucial role in maintaining the perfect thermic comfort too: front winglets and bypass design keep the radiators’ hot air flow away from the rider, channelling fresh air and granting the perfect temperature.
Thermal comfort is also supported by the idling of the cylinders in the rear engine bank.
This specific function, taken from the Desmosedici Stradale model, is activated when the engine is at idle, turning off the rear bank, the one closest to the saddle, reducing heat emission and therefore improving the comfort of both rider and passenger as well as optimizing the consumption.
VIBRATION CONTROL & ACOUSTIC COMFORT
Chassis and engine have been designed to offer the best possible comfort to the rider.
Getting on the Multistrada V4 means letting yourself be enveloped by a "bubble of silence", inside which it is pleasant to drive with the helmet open even at high speed. A condition of high comfort made possible by the combined intervention on three fronts:
- Reduction of air flows reaching the rider and passenger
- Reduction of mechanical noise coming from the engine, thanks to the work of sound quality
- Reduction of vibrations thanks to the ignition order and the geometric arrangement of the cylinders typical of the layout of the V4 engine
INTUITIVE AGILITY MEETS SOLID STABILITY
“A chassis strategy designed to instil 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.
NEW DOUBLE-SIDED SWINGARM
The Multistrada V4 is equipped with a uniquely designed double-sided swingarm inspired by the principles of additive technology.
IMPROVED REAR SUBFRAME SOLIDITY
A new two elements rear trellis frame improves robustness and makes room for underseat storage and the adjustable saddle.
ULTRA LIGHT MONOCOQUE FRAME
The MotoGP-derived monocoque frame allows for a significant weight reduction and adds high rigidity and 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.
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 centre of gravity perfectly positioned in the vehicle.
This structure generates an ease of riding that instils 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.
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.
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 centre section to increase control in standing manoeuvres 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.
The passenger seat padding has been improved to maximise comfort. 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).
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.
THE POWER OF SMOOTHNESS
The V4 Granturismo figures clearly define its unique character: A sporting-spirit DNA, yet boasting a smooth and well-balanced output along the entire torque curve.
A very powerful 170hp engine, smooth and fluid at low revs, progressive and firm in the mids, with a peak torque of almost 13 kg. Really exciting at high revs. Excellent in all conditions, perfect for all riding modes.
