Ducati Multistrada V2 to launch in India on April 25
Ducati is gearing up for the launch of Multistrada V2 in the Indian market. The new adventure motorcycle will go on sale in the country on April 25th, the company has announced over its social media handles. The bike was first revealed to the world market in October 2021. The new bike has been introduced as a replacement to the Multistrada 950 which has been on sale in the Indian market from quite sometime now.
At the heart of the new Multistrada V2 sits the same 937cc, Testastretta motor which is responsible for delivering 111.5bhp of maximum power which is backed up with 96Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox, identical to the existing Multistrada 950 motorcycle. Apart from an updated powertrain, the bike has also received a reduction in overall weight which is down by 5kg when compared to the Multistrada 950 motorcycle.

Internationally, the company retails the Multistrada V2 in two configurations - Standard and Multistrada S. Both these variants are expected to make it to the Indian market, however, it is not officially confirmed yet.
The new Multistrada V2 comes kitted with some very high-end rider aids and features including ABS, Ducati Traction Control, Vehicle Hold Control, and four riding modes- Sport, Touring, Urban, and Enduro. That said , the higher-spec ‘S’ trim also benefits from Ducati Skyhook Suspension EVO semi-active suspension system, Ducati Cornering Lights, Ducati Quick Shift Up & Down, a five-inch colour TFT display, a cruise control system and backlit handlebar controls as standard.
As far as the pricing goes, internationally it retails from $15,295 (roughly converted to ₹11.35 lakh), and the S version starts at $ 17,895 (around ₹13.28 lakh), however, the Indian price is expected to retail higher from ₹16 lakh (ex-showroom). When launched, the bike will go on to rival the likes of models such as the new BMW F900 XR and the Triumph Tiger 900 in the country.
