The 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 is A Travelers Best Friend

As Ducati puts it – The 2023 Multistrada V2 is “The ideal bike to fully enjoy every route, versatile in everyday use and in the city”. The Multistrada V2 is truly designed and engineered to be the Italian manufacturer’s “do it all” bike among its impressive lineup – and they seem to have succeeded. For 2023 the only available Multistrada V2 is an ‘S’ model.

Not alone among the Ducati family, the 2023 Multistrada V2 utilizes the very same 937cc Testeretta V-Twin engine that powers the DesertX, Monster, Hypermotard, and SuperSport. The 11-degree Testeretta produces 113 hp and 71 lb-ft of torque. This setup makes use of an 8-disc hydraulic slipper clutch which makes shifting smoother and easier than ever. While the Testeretta engine does use a desmodromic timing system, Ducati says that the bike can be ridden 30,000 km before the valve clearance must be checked, thanks to new innovations.

The 2023 Multistrada V2 S is a touring-focused motorcycle, and as such, it comes equipped with some touring-focused features – including, but not limited to, a full electronic assistance system, multiple preset riding modes, and cornering ABS, which uses an inertial measurement system to determine the best and safest braking application for a situation. The Multistrada V2 S comes equipped with a Sachs Front and rear suspension and uses the Ducati Skyhook Suspension EVO semi-active suspension system to allow for the ultimate touring experience, courtesy of Ducati. The Multistrada can be optioned with a few different seating options for the best possible comfort and ergonomics.

The Multistrada V2 S is available for purchase in either classic Ducati Red or Street Grey.

The 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S starts at $18,895 USD / $21,395 CAD.
