Introducing The All-new Ducati Multistrada V4
The Multistrada V4 is an exciting new sports-touring model for the 2021 Ducati line-up. Over the years, the Multistrada has made a name for itself as a rugged and practical Italian motorcycle that can handle a wide range of riding situations. The next step in the evolutionary chain, the new V4, is no different. It’s powerful, exciting, and easy on the eyes: just like all Ducati motorcycles should be.
Now, the most exciting feature of the new Multistrada is the engine. For 2021, Ducati has turned its back on the old L-twin, in favor of an all-new V4 arrangement. The 1,158cc Granturismo V4 engine produces a massive 170 horsepower and 92 lb-ft of peak torque, all in a narrow and compact package that actually weighs less than the outgoing Testastretta twin.
The new engine is accompanied by a whole host of exciting riding aids from Ducati. The most notable of these include selectable riding modes, power modes, full Ducati traction control, wheelie control, cornering ABS, and a new LED DRL. And don’t forget: this is only the base model.
For 2021, the Multistrada V4 is available exclusively in Ducati Red, with black wheels.
The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 starts at $19,995 USD / $22,395 CAD.
