Ducati have unveiled the latest addition to the Multistrada family, the V4 Rally – set to be offered in three trim levels, and with an increased focus on its off-road capabilities. The new model will arrive in dealerships mid-2023.
With the “Rally”, Ducati takes the globetrotter spirit of the Multistrada V4 to a higher level, thanks to improved comfort for rider and passenger, a greater range and a more pronounced off-road aptitude.
The result is a motorcycle that is in its element on dirt roads as well as in modern metropolises, the perfect choice for those who want to reach any destination with maximum comfort and safety, without sacrificing the typical Ducati riding emotions.
Living up to its name, the “Rally” model is a bike that further improves its ability to rule all roads, especially unpaved ones. In fact, this Multistrada can count on semi-active suspensions with travel increased to 200mm.
A new Power Mode, dedicated to off-roading, wider rider foot pegs with a more marked profile and removable rubber insert, and a Skyhook DSS EVO control strategy, makes the bike even more precise and efficient.
The Multistrada V4 Rally is also equipped with an auto-levelling function to maintain position when the rider, passenger and luggage configuration alters, in order to always keep the characteristics of the bike unchanged.
Lightened spoke rims and reinforced engine guards also feature, along with a new 30-litre aluminium tank, which integrates harmoniously into the muscular and elegant shapes of the bike.
The 1,158cc V4 Granturismo engine delivers 125kW of power and 121Nm of torque, with a particularly linear curve to ensure a smooth and progressive response at all revs. At chassis level, the Multistrada V4 Rally continues with a monocoque aluminium frame.
Light and compact, it features a double-sided swingarm shell-cast in aluminium. The range opens with the Adventure Radar, with adaptive cruise control and blind spot detection. The Travel & Radar adds aluminium side cases, and heated grips and saddle.
The Full Adventure further adds a homologated Akrapovič silencer and a carbon fibre front mudguard. A range of accessories includes different options for the windscreen, steel-tube engine guard, additional LED spotlights, and satellite navigation.
A top case or soft bag are also available. It’s even possible to make the Multistrada V4 Rally sportier with different parts of carbon fibre trim, aluminium levers, dynamic LED indicators and machined brake and clutch fluid reservoirs. Ducati has also created apparel.
The Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally will arrive in Australian dealerships from mid-2023 in two colours: Ducati Red and Brushed Aluminium/Matte Black. The latter features an exposed brushed aluminium tank, with black spoked rims for both.
