Multistrada V4 Technical Data

Multistrada V4 Design and Styling

Elegant and unique

The sleek surfaces, flowing design and volume difference between the front and rear remain the highly characteristic elements that in the new Multistrada V4 reach completely new quality and finishing standards. Another highly characteristic element of the new Multistrada V4 S are the Y-shaped 5 spoke wheels.

Overview of Multistrada V4 Engine

Dedicated gearshift

No detail has been overlooked in the engine design. The gearbox is also totally dedicated with ratios that make it more versatile. A shorter first gear and a longer sixth gear than the Desmosedici Stradale engine, allow the bike to be adaptable in all situations of use: from off-road, to low-speed maneuvers to riding on the motorway.

Counter-rotating crankshaft

The adoption of the counter-rotating crankshaft - borrowed from the Desmosedici Stradale - allows to significantly reduce the gyroscopic effect that the wheels impart to the vehicle, improving handling and agility and reducing pitching during acceleration and braking. This technical choice improves riding safety and comfort in daily road use or traveling.

V4

The 90° four-cylinder engine was chosen to combine extreme sporting performance with slick and smooth features, and to guarantee an instant and progressive impetus and drive on demand even at low and medium speed.

90 Degree

The 90 V layout of the cylinders creates a natural balancing of first-order forces without the need to resort to a balance shaft. This has made it possible to eliminate the vibrations at full capacity and consistent speeds, both during acceleration and when changing gear. Everything possible for ultimate riding comfort.

-1,2 Kg

The meticulous design of the new engine has led to a decrease in weight of 1.2 kg compared to the 1260 cc Testastretta DVT twin cylinder bike, boosting rideability and handling of the bike.

-95 mm, -85 mm, +20 mm

Compared to the DVT Testastretta it is 85 mm shorter and 95 mm lower, despite an increase in width of just 20 mm. This extreme compactness allows the engine to be placed in a more efficient and central position on the bike and achieve the ideal centre of gravity. The key asset for an efficient chassis, designed for ultimate usability and excellent rideability, whatever the riding mode.

The Power is smooth

The V4 Granturismo delivers a maximum power of 125 kW (170 hp) at 10,500 rpm, and maximum torque of 125 Nm (12.7 Kgm) at 8,750 rpm. This is achieved in full compliance with the Euro 5 thresholds.

A drive unit that translates into a smooth delivery at low speed, great torque at medium speed and sporting spirit at high speed.

1,158 cc

The perfect blend of performance, lightness and overall dimensions. For a more compact engine yet still capable of delivering progressive power at different speeds, and the ideal drive and impetus on demand in all riding conditions.

170 hp and 12.7 kgm

A higher delivery than that of the previous Testastretta DVT, which highlights the sporting spirit of this bike and boosts its range of performance. A great torque, on demand at all speeds, and with progressive, slick and smooth delivery.

Gearbox and clutch

The 6-gear engine is optimised to exploit the exceptional power of the engine torque and ensure the ideal response even when carrying a passenger and at full load.

Optimised fluid-dynamics

The diameters and lengths of the tubes have been specially designed to provide the best possible road delivery. The V4 Granturismo throttle bodies are controlled by a dedicated electric motor and can activate the throttles in an asynchronous mode between the two banks. This makes it possible to accomplish a positive power delivery curve at all speeds and a smooth torque which adds to achieving maximum on-road riding pleasure.

Built to travel far

60,000 km: 1.5 times the earth's circumference.

This is what the valve clearance maintenance schedule amounts to. This is the specification that describes the robustness and durability of this new engine. A figure that highlights the real benefit for the rider: more time to enjoy riding the motorcycle.

60,000 km

The know-how developed on the desmodromic system, applied to the spring timing system, has made it possible to extend the valve clearance maintenance schedule to 60,000 km, compared to a sector average of 25,000, hence less than half.

15,000 km and 2 years

Maintenance operations are reduced both in terms of costs and frequency; even the oil service and the mileage service are scheduled at very long intervals, 15,000 km and two years respectively.

Twin Pulse

The 70° offset of the crank pins combined with the 90° V-engine layout generates a firing order that Ducati has called "Twin Pulse". The result is a sound that is similar to that of a twin-cylinder engine, but also a superb delivery at all speeds, and easy to manage, especially when coming out of a bend.

Semi-dry casing lubrication

Like the Desmosedici Stradale, the V4 Granturismo engine uses a semi-dry casing lubrication with delivery and recovery stages to ensure proper lubrication of all moving parts at all times. A technical choice first used on the race track, but ideal for ensuring maximum reliability to a road engine that also required excellent lubrication in all situations. The “high” oil sump also contributes significantly to the increase in ground clearance, excellent for urban and off-road use.

Cooling system

The water pump, located in the V of the cylinders, is powered by a shaft driven by a cascade of gear wheels. Its location is designed to reduce the size of the circuit as much as possible, improving its efficiency and optimising engine weight.

Overview of Multistrada V4 Chassis

Frame

The new Multistrada V4 reaches new levels of handling, riding fluidity, intuitiveness and ease of use.

Compact and agile, the frame and chassis have been designed to give an intense feeling of ease of riding and safe stability at high speeds.

New double-sided swingarm

The Multistrada V4 is equipped with a uniquely designed double-sided swingarm inspired by the principles of additive technology.

Improved rear subframe solidity

A new two elements rear trellis frame improves robustness and makes room for underseat storage and the adjustable saddle.

Ultra light Monocoque frame

The MotoGP-derived monocoque frame allows for a significant weight reduction and adds high rigidity and stability at high speeds.

19 inches front wheel

The 19" front wheel ensures a rounded and intuitive ride in sport and touring use, as well as greater control on unpaved roads.

Adaptive soul

Compared to the previous generation, the compactness of the V4 Granturismo engine and the reduced wheelbase make the bike shorter, more agile and with a center of gravity perfectly positioned in the vehicle.

This structure generates an ease of riding that instills safety in every rider, in any riding situation: from long-distance comfort to the pleasure of off-road performance, also enhancing the Ducati sporting DNA.

Just the pleasure of riding

The new Multistrada V4 has been engineered for maximum riding comfort. Aerodynamics, engine delivery and optimization of the characteristics of the frame combine to achieve excellent values in the field of NVH (Noise and Vibration Harshness).

Ergonomics have also been improved, to ensure a more comfortable seat position for both touring and off-road standing riding.

Vibration reduction

All chassis balances and engine gears are optimized to reduce vibrations and offer the best possible comfort to the rider and passenger.

Getting on the Multistrada V4 means letting yourself be enveloped by a "bubble of silence", inside which you can comfortably ride with the helmet open even at high speed. Minimal vibrations maximize comfort, especially over long distances, as does engine noise which is kept to a minimum thanks to reduced gearbox allowances.

Ergonomy for comfort

Saddle, seat profile and leg room have been designed to put any rider at ease. Not all motorcyclists are the same, and when riding a Multistrada it is important to make the experience of every rider comfortable on all types of roads.

Riding position

Thanks to the compact engine, more space has been obtained to mount an adjustable saddle capable of meeting all needs. The saddle was redesigned to be more narrow, with a lean center section to increase control in standing maneuvers and flatter to facilitate longitudinal movements. The narrow central section guarantees ease of touching the ground to riders of all heights, a versatility also increased by the two positions on which the saddle is adjustable.

Passenger comfort

The passenger seat padding has been improved to maximise comfot. First of all has been widened and equipped with more comfortable handles and more leg room, but it is also made thicker (+ 25 mm) and longer (+40 mm).

Sound quality

The exhaust has been perfected both at the level of the manifold and at the level of the terminals by an accurate work of sound quality. The result is a sound that, recalling the classic twin-cylinder, transmits all the sportiness of Ducati DNA, lowering the frequencies that could interfere with the acoustic comfort of the rider and that could be tiring on long journeys.

New 6.5-inch dashboard

Adjustable in inclination to be perfectly visible whatever the rider's height, the large dashboard houses a 6.5-inch TFT screen. In color, with high resolution and perfect visibility in any light condition, the new TFT features a new HMI interface, completely redesigned to be more intuitive, easy to use and pleasant to look at.

Available in 6 languages, the dashboard integrates all the information the pilot needs during the journey - including the dynamic navigation map - and is the first dashboard equipped with optical bonding technology, which improves the visibility of the interface and enables dark mode. graphics even during the day.

Ducati Connect

Thanks to the Ducati Connect system, compatible with iOs and Android, through smartphone mirroring you can do everything you may need during the trip.

QUICK SHIFT

The evolved quick shift, derived from Ducati's racing experience, interacts with the inertial platform to optimize the gear performance.

There are many technological solutions introduced by Ducati to adapt to the needs of the rider, whether they are oriented towards comfort or the desire for a sportier ride.

These include the auto-leveling system that recognizes the bike's load setting and adjusts it autonomously to bring the saddle to the ideal height from the ground in the different riding configurations, adding to the (manual) options already available for the user: rider, pilot plus panniers, pilot and passenger, pilot and passenger with panniers.

Or the latest generation Quick Shift, which implements the use of information transferred from the inertial platform to improve the performance of the device both downshifting and upshifting.
