The all-new 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 has landed, and it is gorgeous
Ducati Malaysia has finally launched its latest model for the local market, the 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4. For those looking for an exciting bike that can basically conquer any and every road, the Ducati Multistrada V4 should be high up on your list, and for loads of good reasons too.
Ducati has basically kept the iconic design DNA for the new Multistrada that's instantly recognisable by Ducati enthusiasts around the world. While the exterior might look the same, the insides are on a whole different level. For starters, this adventure-tourer model comes ready with the brand's latest 1,158cc V4 Granturismo engine.
Producing 170hp at 10,500rpm and 125Nm of torque at 8,750rpm, the new Ducati Multistrada V4 is the most powerful ADV bike in its class. While power is at the forefront of this particular model, Ducati also went to great lengths to ensure that it's durable enough to withstand any riding scenario near and far.
The Multistrada V4 is also the first Ducati model to use the conventional spring valve system, which also means that they're able to increase the service interval to 15,000km. As for valve adjustment and other bits in the 'Desmo service', that is set at every 60,000km, and no other production bike in the present can match that.
What's also unique about the new Multistrada V4 is that it comes ready with a front and rear radar system which assist the rider by offering Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) as well as Blind Sport Detection (BSD) - also a world's first in the two-wheel segment thanks to their partnership with Bosch.
Other noteworthy specs include:
- 6.5-inch TFT display
- Ducati Safety Pack
- Ducati Traction & Wheelie Control
- Selectable Riding Modes
- Auto-leveling function & quickshift (available on the V4 S)
- Ducati Skyhook Suspension (semi-active)
- Brembo Stylema brakes
- 22-litre fuel tank + more
