Ducati Multistrada V4: Engine

Powering the Multistrada V4 is the ‘V4 Granturismo engine’. This engine misses out on the company’s Desmodromic valves and makes do with a spring valve return system, a change that has contributed to the huge service interval.

Ducati has added that the engine has been tuned to improve the riding experience at lower revs. The company claims that its Euro 5 (BS6) compliant engine makes 170hp at 10,500rpm and maximum torque of 125Nm at 8,750rpm. At 66.7kg, the V4 Granturismo engine is 1.2kg lighter than the Testastretta twin-cylinder used on the Multistrada 1260.

The bike's Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) manages the operation of cornering ABS, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), here in cornering version, and on the Multistrada V4 S, the Cornering Lights (DCL). The S variant also features Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) and a semi-active Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) control system with Auto leveling function.

The standout feature is the bike's front and rear radar system, which allows the use of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Blind Spot Detection (BSD).
