Ducati have just announced their new Multistrada V4 Rally, check out all the features of this awesome machine. The Rally will start from $41,400 in Australia... Release: Ducati.

In the third episode of the 2023 Ducati World Première web series, the Bologna-based manufacturer presented the new Multistrada V4 Rally, the Ducati aimed at lovers of long journeys. Check out the World Première of the new model below…

The Multistrada Rally counts on semi-active suspension with travel increased to 200mm that guarantees a higher ground clearance, a new Power Mode dedicated to off-roading, wider rider footpegs with a more marked profile and removable rubber insert and Skyhook DSS EVO control strategy, even more precise and efficient.

The Multistrada V4 Rally is also equipped with an Autoleveling function, which keeps the Rally nice and stable! Off-road aptitude increases with the Multistrada V4 Rally thanks also to standard lightened spoke rims and reinforced engine guards. The new 30-litre aluminium tank gives the rider more range between fuel stops!



The windshield has been redesigned from the standard Multistrada (increased by 40 mm in height and 20 mm in width), the tail has been lengthened and the case attachment 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.

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.

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. 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 compression. In addition, a center stand is standard on this bike…



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) 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.


UMI

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.

Ducati has developed four Riding Modes (Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro), which on the Multistrada V4 Rally see an evolution of the Enduro mode. Selecting the Enduro Riding Mode activates a dedicated Power Mode, which limits the power of the engine to 114hp. The DSS Evolution gets ready for off-road riding by indicating the load mode. 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 Multistrada V4 Rally also introduces a brand-new extended deactivation of the rear cylinder bank. In addition to switching off the rear cylinders at idle with the motorcycle stationary, a function already present on the Multistrada V4, the V4 Granturismo now keeps the rear bank deactivated in other operating conditions to the benefit of fuel consumption and emissions. The deactivation takes place even with the motorcycle in motion: as speed increases or above certain throttle input, the rear cylinders are reactivated. This system is active in all Riding Modes.

The 1,158cc V4 Granturismo engine delivers 170hp@10,750rpm and 121Nm@8,750 rpm. The performance of this engine, combined with its total weight of only 66.7kg, allows the V4 Granturismo to compliment the Rally perfectly! 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 high rpm.



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..

The new Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally is offered in three different versions: Adventure Radar, equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Detection, Adventure Travel & Radar, which adds aluminium side cases, heated grips and saddles, while the Full Adventure completes this latter equipment with a homologated Akrapovič silencer and a carbon fibre front mudguard.



The Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally will arrive in dealerships starting from February 2023 in two colours: Ducati Red and Brushed Aluminium & Matt Black, the latter with an exposed brushed aluminium tank, with black spoke rims for both. The Multistrada V4 Rally – like all Ducati Multistrada – is covered by “4|Ever Ducati ” warranty, valid for 4 years with unlimited mileage that relies on the service offered by the entire network of dealers**. The Multistrada V4 Rally will start from $41,400 in Australia
