Ducati today announced the launch of the new Multistrada V4 Rally in India, a motorcycle aimed at lovers of long journeys. This new addition to the Multistrada V4 family is an unstoppable companion of adventure, to conquer unexplored places and reaching them with maximum comfort. The bike is made to explore the world, without stopping at anything, either alone or with a passenger.
With the Multistrada V4 “Rally”, Ducati takes the globetrotter spirit of the Multistrada V4 to an even higher level, thanks to improved comfort for rider and passenger, a greater range, and a more pronounced off-road aptitude. The result is a motorcycle that is in its element on dirt roads as well as in modern metropolises: the perfect choice for those who want to reach any destination with maximum comfort and safety, without sacrificing the typical Ducati riding emotion. As with the entire Multistrada V4 family, performance (170 hp), reliability and maintenance costs (Intervals every 60,000 km and Oil Service every 15,000 km/24 months) are excellent.
Living up to its name, the “Rally” model of the Multistrada V4 is a bike that further improves its ability to rule all roads, especially unpaved ones. In fact, this Multistrada can count on semi-active suspension with travel increased to 200 mm that guarantees a higher ground clearance, on a new Power Mode dedicated to off-roading, on wider rider foot pegs with a more marked profile and removable rubber insert and, on the Skyhook, DSS EVO control strategy, even more precise and efficient. The Multistrada V4 Rally is also equipped with an Auto leveling function, which guarantees a constant trim when the rider, passenger and luggage configuration alters, to always keep the characteristics of the vehicle unchanged. Off-road aptitude increases with the Multistrada V4 Rally thanks to standard lightened spoke rims and reinforced engine guards.
With the new 30-litre aluminium tank, which integrates harmoniously into the muscular and elegant shapes of the bike, it is possible to increase the distances that can be travelled between one refueling stop and the next.
The Multistrada V4 Rally is the ideal bike for travelling as a couple and has been designed to take the comfort of the rider and the pillion to the highest level: in this sense the windshield has been redesigned (increased by 40 mm in height and 20 mm in width), the tail has been lengthened and the case attachment is set back to offer more space in the leg area for the passenger, who can also count on footrests with larger rubber inserts to reduce the level of transmitted vibrations.
Furthermore, thanks to the availability of saddles of different heights for both rider and passenger and the lowered suspension kit, the Multistrada V4 Rally can be customized to suit any rider and passenger combination. The Minimum Preload function, already introduced on the Multistrada V4 S in 2022, allows the rider to “lower” the bike when stopping and riding at low speed, by minimizing the preload of the shock absorber.
The Multistrada V4 Rally takes a further step forward in terms of ease of use by introducing the Easy Lift function which, by opening the suspension hydraulics at key-on, reduces the effort required to lift the motorcycle from the side stand thanks to fork and shock absorber compression. In addition, a center stand is standard on this bike to help with the loading and unloading of the side cases and to perform any maintenance items on long journeys away from home easier.
Ducati Multistrada family continues to be a benchmark from a technological and safety point of view with the Rally model. The Multistrada V4 was the first motorcycle in the world equipped with a front and rear radar system to support the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), which make riding less tiring on long road sections, and Blind Spot Detection (BSD), which signals the presence of vehicles approaching in the blind corner of the mirrors.
The 6.5-inch TFT colour dashboard offers map navigation features thanks to the Ducati Connect application, which supports the use of a mobile phone to answer calls or listen to music, using a helmet equipped with an intercom system.
To further support active safety, the Multistrada V4 Rally integrates ABS Cornering, which allows you to take advantage of the braking power of its system even when cornering, Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL), which improve night visibility by illuminating the inside of corners, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) and Ducati Traction Control (DTC). These systems use the inertial platform (IMU) to optimize the intervention based on the lean and pitch angle of the vehicle.
To make the most of the potential of the Multistrada V4 in every context, Ducati has developed four Riding Modes (Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro), which on the Multistrada V4 Rally see an important evolution of the Enduro mode. Selecting the Enduro Riding Mode activates a dedicated Power Mode, which limits the power of the engine to 114 hp with a dynamic and direct response. The DSS Evolution gets ready for off-road riding by indicating the load mode with a specific icon, depicting an off-road helmet. The DTC switches to a lower intervention level and the DWC is deactivated. The ABS on the rear wheel is also deactivated and cornering functionality and rear lift detection are suppressed to adapt to off-road use.
The 1,158 cc V4 Granturismo engine delivers 170 hp at 10,750 rpm and 121 Nm at 8,750 rpm, with a particularly linear torque curve to ensure a smooth and progressive response at all revs. The performance of this engine, combined with its total weight of only 66.7 kg, allows the V4 Granturismo to continue to be the benchmark in the category for power and lightness.
These numbers are combined with refined technical solutions, such as a counter-rotating crankshaft, derived from the experience gained by Ducati Corse in MotoGP, which works “against” the gyroscopic inertia of the wheels, but also the torque curves dedicated to each single gear ratio to combine smooth delivery at low revs, robustness of torque in the mids and power at highs.
At chassis level, the Multistrada V4 Rally continues with the monocoque aluminium frame, light and compact, with a double-sided swingarm shell-cast in aluminium. The Multistrada V4 Rally is offered exclusively with tubeless spoke rims, redesigned, and lightened to improve its dynamic qualities.
