2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 S / Pikes Peak / Rally [Specs, Features, Photos]

Ducati Multistrada V4 S / Pikes Peak / Rally

The 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Has Something For Every Touring Enthusiast

The touring-focused Ducati Multistrada has gone through a lot of changes over the year, all of which have culminated in an extremely refined package. For 2023 the Multistrada hasn’t received much in the way of updates, but there is a brand new model offering – the Rally, which now sits between the standard S model and the performance-oriented Pikes Peak.

The V4 Multistrada is powered by the 1,158 cc V4 Granturismo, which can also be found in the 2023 Diavel V4. In this application, the four-cylinder powerplant produces 170 HP and either 89.2 lb-ft (for the Rally model) or 92 lb-ft (S & Pikes Peak). The bike has an aluminum monocoque frame and fully adjustable front & rear suspension, with the Ducati Skyhook semi active suspension system.

In true Italian fashion, the basic S model is far from bare-bones – features like a 6.5” colour display, front & rear Brembos, and a dual directional quick shifter are standard. Like the other bikes in Ducati’s 2023 lineup, the Multistrada V4 receives a full suite of tech features, including traction control, wheelie control, and multiple preset power modes, additionally, the bike comes equipped with a navigation system ready for any adventure.

The aptly named Pikes Peak model comes straight from the factory ready to race – the bike has performance-oriented upgrades, including forged wheels, Ohlins suspension, and a single-sided swing arm. Ducati also says the Pikes Peak’s electronics package has been adjusted to allow for more aggressive riding.

The brand new 2023 Rally model takes the touring focus of the basic Multistrada V4 S and raises it up a notch – the Rally model, which sits between the S and Pikes Peak in terms of pricing, has upgrades like a larger 30-litre fuel tank (compared to the standard 22). Additionally, the bike gets a bigger windscreen, a set of aluminum side cases, and a longer tail section to allow for more comfortable two-up riding.

The Multistrada V4 S is available for purchase in classic Ducati Red, Aviator Grey, and Iceberg White, the Pikes Peak is only available in a unique black, red, and white racing-inspired livery, while the rally model is offered in Ducati Red or a dual tone brushed aluminum and matte black colourway.

The 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 S starts at $27,195 USD / $30,295 CAD.
