The key highlight on the new Multistrada V4 is its powertrain - V4 Granturismo. The company claims that it is a lightweight (66.7 kg) and compact unit which displaces 1,158 cc and delivers 170 hp (125 kW) at 10,500 rpm with a maximum torque of 125 Nm (12.7 kgm) at 8,750 rpm.

In addition, adopting this engine allows for a significant lengthening of maintenance intervals on the bike. As per the company its oil change is scheduled every 15,000 km, while valve clearance check and eventual adjustment is required every 60,000 km. Ducati claims that no bike in production goes that far.

The bike is built around an aluminium monocoque frame sitting atop of the new V4 engine, with a trellis-style subframe at the back.

The suspension setup on the bike offers long travel – 170 mm at the front and 180 mm over the back – while the bike features a ground clearance of 220 mm which is 46 mm higher than the its predecessor.
