Back in late 2017, Ducati Motor introduced the world to its all-new Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine platform, marking the first non-L-Twin engine from the brand since the release of the 750 GT in the early 1970s. After initially making its production debut on the Streetfighter and Panigale V4 models, the MotoGP-derived mill has now been bestowed upon the Italian marque’s go-anywhere Multistrada range for 2021.

Built around an all-new aluminum monocoque frame and powered by a 1,158cc V4 engine generating 170hp and 92ft-lbs of torque, the new V4 adventure bike is adorned in redesigned bodywork with a larger tank and overall sharper and more aggressive appearance. Sporting a shorter wheelbase and taller seat height, the bike gets top-shelf Marzocchi suspension, a host of wheel options, Brembo brakes, a full electronics suite of rider assists and fuel maps, a 5” standard TFT display, and an ultra-trick radar-controlled adaptive cruise control—a motorcycle industry first—with a smart blindspot detection system. Ducati is also offering an upgraded S-spec with a 6.5” TFT display, cruise control, a hands-free ignition, Vehicle Hold Control, Ducati’s smartphone connectivity platform, a USB port and dedicated smartphone compartment, active cornering lights, and a multi-directional quick-shifter, as well as the top-of-the-line Multistrada V4 S Sport that also gets an Akrapovič exhaust and various carbon fiber bits. Available now, the 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 starts at $19,995.
