Your everyday wonder

The Ducati Multistrada family continues its evolution with the presentation of the new Multistrada V2: the ideal bike to fully enjoy every route, versatile in everyday use and in the city, always with the sportiness and unmistakable style that characterize every Ducati.

The new twin-cylinder of the family of Ducati dual bikes is a 360° bike, increasingly intuitive, comfortable, fun and accessible. Multistrada V2 is a technologically advanced motorcycle, with a sophisticated cycling and an extremely complete electronic package, without forgetting the engine, the latest evolution of the 937 cc Testastretta 11° unit, and represents the perfect gateway to the Ducati tourer universe.

During the development phases of this bike the main points of focus were ergonomics, weight reduction, engine updates and a series of upgrades that follow the philosophy of "continuous improvement".

More comfortable, more fun, easier to ride

1. Ergonomics

The height has been reduced to 32.7 in, with a redesigned shape of the saddle which is now narrower and more compact between the rider's legs to allow you to easily touch the ground with your feet thanks to an inseam arch of only 70.5 in.

2. Weight reduction

The weight reduction work conducted on the bike has made it possible to obtain a final dry weight of 438 lb (445 lb for the S version), 11 lb less than the Multistrada 950. The engine has lost about 4.4 lb.

3. Frame

The scheme adopted for the chassis of the Multistrada V2 includes a front trellis frame together with two cast side frames, closed off by a rear load-bearing element made of.

4. Suspensions and brakes

The Multistrada V2 is equipped with a 1.9 in diameter upside-down front fork with 6.7 in travel, dedicated cast end caps, adjustable in spring preload and hydraulic brake in rebound and compression.

Power and torque always under control

The Multistrada V2 is driven by the last evolution of the well-known and much-loved 937 cc Ducati Testastretta 11° twin-cylinder with desmodromic distribution, that delivers 113 horsepower at 9.000 rpm.

The engine has been lightened and updated in the gearbox and clutch, in order to guarantee greater fluidity and precision in shifting, also facilitating the engagement of neutral. Reliable and strong, Testastretta 11° has extended maintenance intervals, with oil change every 9,300 Miles and valve clearance check every 18,600 miles

Uncompromising electronics and control

Safety, comfort and performance of the Multistrada V2 are also guaranteed by state-of-the-art electronic assistance systems. In the S version, the journey becomes 5-star thanks to a benchmark full-optional package for the segment to which it belongs.

The Multistrada V2 features four Riding Modes (Sport, Touring, Urban, Enduro) that act on the riding aid systems, engine mapping and Skyhook suspension (for the S version), making the character of the bike completely customisable.

The Bosch's 6-axis inertial platform IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) allows for the Cornering operation of the ABS, i.e. variable depending on the bend angle.

The dashboard of the Multistrada V2 consists of a large, high-visibility LCD. The S version, on the other hand, features a high resolution 5" color TFT display, with an intuitive interface that makes it easy to navigate the menu. Both versions integrate with the Ducati Multimedia System.

The Multistrada V2 sports an aggressive design lamp front headlight, typical of the motorcycles of the Multistrada family. At the rear there is an LED tail-light, which uses the Ducati Brake Light system (already developed on the Multistrada V4): in the event of violent braking, this system automatically activates the flashing of the rear light in order to appropriately signal an abrupt slowdown to the following vehicles, thus contributing to the overall safety of the motorcycle.

In the S version, the headlamp is full-LED, equipped with the Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL) function which optimizes the lighting of the roadway when cornering based on the inclination of the motorcycle.

The Ducati Traction Control (DTC) of the Multistrada V2 is adjustable on eight levels, while ABS Cornering is adjustable on three and at level 1 it offers "only front" (non-cornering) functionality. The Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) system helps the rider in uphill starting phases. It activates when the user, with the motorcycle stationary and with the side stand retracted, applies high pressure on the front brake lever or on the rear brake pedal and is able to keep the vehicle stationary by actively intervening on the rear brake.
