Ducati have launched a new version of the Multistrada, with the travel-focused V4 S Grand Tour also marking the bike’s 20th anniversary. A fully optioned motorcycle, it features a dedicated livery and a double radar system.
The latter brings adaptive cruise control and blind spot detection to improve rider safety and comfort. A tyre pressure monitoring system and additional LED lights improve visibility at night and in fog, as well.
The side panniers, standard on the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour, provide 60-litres of overall volume, allowing you to take everything you need for longer journeys. A central stand helps to make using the cases easier and safer, including assembly and disassembly.
Comfort also gets a boost on the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour, with heating for the grips, and rider and passenger seats. A hands-free fuel cap simplifies refuelling too, allowing you to always keep the motorbike key in your pocket.
Finally, the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour incorporates several updates adopted on the V4 Rally. These include the handlebar being rigidly mounted on the steering head, without silent blocks, for a more direct riding feeling, without compromising comfort.
The passenger seat has also been lifted from its sibling. To improve thermal comfort, the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour adopts heat shields on the swingarm, and on the left side of the rear subframe, as well as closable ducts in the leg area.
The dedicated smartphone compartment is now ventilated, and like all the Multistrada V4 offerings, the Grand Tour is also equipped with a phone mirroring system, with navigation. This allows you to transform the 6.5-inch TFT dashboard into a coloured map.
The 2024 Ducati Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour also features a minimum preload function, which allows the rider to lower the motorbike when stopping, and when travelling at low speed.
An easy lift function reduces the effort required to lift the motorbike from the side stand by opening the suspension hydraulics when the key is switched to “on”. The new variant is expected to cost $45,200 ride away.
