Ducati has launched the Multistrada V4 in India. The adventure bike is available in two variants – V4 and V4S, priced at Rs. 18.99 lakh and Rs. 23.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), respectively.

The Multistrada V4 is powered by a 1,158cc, liquid-cooled V4 engine that puts out 168 BHP @ 10,500 rpm and 125 Nm @ 8,750 rpm. It uses traditional valve springs instead of Ducati’s Desmodromic system. The engine also features a cylinder deactivation system that shuts down the rear cylinder bank when idling. The bike comes with four riding modes – Travel, Enduro, Sport and Urban.

The Multistrada V4 is equipped with a fully adjustable upside-down fork suspension at the front and a Marzocchi mono-shock at the rear. The V4S gets Ducati’s semi-active Skyhook suspension system with an auto-levelling function. The V4S also comes with cornering lights.

The bike is equipped with a 6.5-inch digital instrument console that has a smartphone mirroring function and navigation. Other features include cornering ABS, wheelie control, traction control and an inertial measurement unit.
