Ducati India has launched the all-new Multistrada V4 in the country. The company’s 170hp flagship ADV comes in two variants, which are the V4 and the more premium V4 S. The V4 is the entry-level variant, which has been launched at an initial price of Rs 18.99 lakh. While the V4 S can be purchased for Rs 23.10 lakh. The newly launched Ducati Multistrada V4 will get a Red color option, while the Multistrada V4 S has been made available in Red and Gray color options. The price of V4 S is Rs 23.30 lakh. This price is ex-showroom.
The new V4 will start arriving at dealerships by next week.
The Ducati Multistrada V4 is powered by a 1,158cc V4 Granturismo engine that produces a maximum power output of 170 hp at 10,500 rpm. While the peak torque output is 125 Nm at 8,750 rpm. Ducati said that this engine is lightweight and weighs only 66.7 kg. The bike also gets four riding modes, in which Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro will be available. The company claims that there is a valve clearance interval of 60,000 km for the Multistrada V4.
Apart from this, the Multistrada V4 is the first bike in the world to get a front and rear rider assistance system. However, the radar system in India will be standard on the Multistrada V4 S. And the Multistrada will not be offered in the V4. The front radar is for adaptive cruise control, which ensures braking and acceleration control. Because the bike is automatically adjusted from other vehicles, while the speed is between 30 kmph and 160 kmph. On the other hand, rear radar technology can detect and report vehicles coming in blind spots. Blind spot is the area which is not visible to the rider through the rear view mirror.
