The 2022 Ducati Multistrada V2 is a User-Friendly Powerhouse For The Masses

In the 2022 Ducati lineup, there has been alot of hype for the 2022 Multistrada lineup with the Pikes Peak V4 getting the most attention, but there is a hidden gem lurking in the background. Ducati Motorcycles say the Multistrada V2 was designed as a “…gateway to Ducati’s touring universe”. They’ve made it lower, slimmer, and easier to ride – and at the same time trimmed some weight. The fundamentals of the bike is still the same as the 950, which is a good thing. Not a trickled down junior version of the bigger brother, but a fully-featured premium machine in its own right with a lighter, less imposing presence.

Centered on the latest evolution of the 937cc Testastretta 11°engine, the new V2 and V2 S excel thanks to 113hp from an L-twin cylinder unit that has been lightened and updated in the gearbox and clutch to ensure smoother and more precise running.

Naturally, the new V2 is fitted with the latest electronics including four Riding Modes (Sport, Touring, Urban, Enduro), Power Modes, Cornering ABS, Ducati Traction Control, Ducati F1 style Brake Light, and Vehicle Hold Control.

Stepping up to the V2 S 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 S version also adds the 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.

The V2 and V2 S isn’t a massive leap for the Italian Manufacturer, but a significant evolution for those who aren’t sucked into the big adventure bike craze. It is far more than the existing bike and deserves the attention of the newer and younger crowd.

  • V2 MSRP: $15,295 USD / $16,995 CDN
  • V2 S MSRP: $17,895 USD / $20,295 CDN
