New Delhi: Italian superbike maker Ducati on Thursday launched its adventure tourer Multistrada V4 and V4 S, priced at INR 18.99 lakh and INR 23.10 lakh respectively (ex-showroom pan India), which will be available in showrooms by early next week.
The Multistrada V4 and V4 S are powered by ‘V4 Granturismo engine’ with a power output of 170 Hp at 10,500 rpm. The engine has been designed for road and off-road use, the company said in a release.
Bipul Chandra, managing director, Ducati India, said, “The wait was long, but I am sure it will be worth it for all the Ducatisti that waited patiently for the bike. The new Granturismo V4 engine is specifically designed keeping touring and off-road riding in mind and it is the heart of this whole project.”
Ducati said the Multistrada V4 has also adopted the radar technology that is capable of supporting and making riding more comfortable due to the ability to reconstruct the reality surrounding the motorcycle.
However, in India, the radar system will be a standard fitment on the Multistrada V4 S and will not be available on the Multistrada V4, the company added.
As per Ducati, the Multistrada V4 range features the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), which includes Brembo braking system with Bosch 10.3ME Cornering ABS, adjustable on three levels.
