The Technologically Advanced Ducati Multistrada V4 S
With the introduction of an entirely new Multistrada, it’s only natural that Ducati would add a few more Multistrada models to their 2021 Ducati line-up. While the base model Multistrada V4 is already an excellent motorcycle, this Italian manufacturer has added an even more exclusive model with more features, more technology, a wider selection of aesthetic options. This is the Multistrada V4 S.
In terms of performance, the new Multistrada V4 S is identical to the regular Multistrada V4. It shares almost all of the same DNA, including the bike’s brand-new 1,158 cc Granturismo V4 engine that produces an impressive 170 horsepower and 92 lb-ft of peak torque. Naturally, it also boasts the same electronics suite and riding aids as the base model too, including traction control, cornering ABS, and the usual goodies.
What makes the S model different is the addition of Ducati’s advanced Skyhook Suspension Evolution system, larger brake discs, Brembo Stylema brakes, cornering lights, LED lights, and Ducati Connect smartphone compatibility. The S variant also uses Ducati’s innovative radar system: an industry first, that uses radar technology to power adaptive cruise control and blind-spot detection.
For 2021, the Multistrada V4 S is available in two color options: Ducati Red or Aviator Grey. Both options can be purchased with either spoked wheels or alloy wheels.
The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 S starts at $24,095 USD / $24,795 CAD.
