Ducati unveils four new models at 2024 Premiere

Delivered in partnership with Pirelli, Ducati has showcased four new models as part of the 2024 Premiere event, with each example flown in from Europe. On show were the Multistrada V4 RS and V4 S Grand Tour, DesertX Rally and Hypermotard 698 Mono.

“2024 is shaping up to be one of Ducati’s biggest years in Australia, with more models than ever before, an expanding dealer network, and more client experience events for Ducatisti throughout Australia and New Zealand to engage with,” Ducati ANZ head of marketing Alana Baratto said.

Of the new models, the Multistrada V4 RS represents the sportiest, most sophisticated and exclusive variant ever created; produced in a numbered series, it’s equipped with the Desmosedici Stradale engine from the Panigale V4.

That’s paired with a dry clutch and Akrapovič silencer to generate additional excitement when it comes to power deliver. Öhlins suspension, a single-sided aluminium swingarm and forged rims complete the package.

Joining it is the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour, a bike that comes complete with all the accessories to travel long distances “in first class”. A fully-optioned motorcycle, it features the normally optional travel and radar setups.

The package includes adaptive cruise control and blind spot detection, tyre pressure monitoring, and additional LED lights. Launched alongside both was the DesertX Rally, the first Ducati to every ride on a 21-inch front rim and 18-inch rear.

Designed and developed for ‘adventouring’ and rally lovers, it features a high front mudguard, Kayaba suspension with increased travel, a closed cartridge fork and shock absorber with a larger piston. Central-spoked wheels are tailored for off road use.

The last of the four models unveiled was the Hypermotard 698 Mono, the first single cylinder of its kind, fitted to a bike that’s sole objective is to be thrilling through curves, on the road and track.

Equipped with the new Superquadro Mono, it makes 57kW of power in a unit derived from the twin-cylinder of the 1299 Panigale, utilising the same solution Ducati uses in MotoGP. It’s set to be priced at $22,800 ride away.

The Multistrada V4 RS will hit the road at $55,800, with the V4 S Grand Tour at $45,200. The DesertX Rally has a ride away price of $36,600. For more information, or to check out the new range of riding gear, contact your local Ducati dealer.
