2023 Ducati V4 Multistrada Rally Released

Ducati have increased their range of the popular Multistrada model with the introduction of the Multistrada V4 Rally for 2023. Due to arrive in Australia in the first quarter of 2023 the Multistrada V4 Rally will be priced from $41,400 ride away.

The Ducati V4 Rally is aimed at lovers of touring and has a distinct off road focus. An unstoppable companion of adventure, deigned to offer the rider maximum comfort, in their explorations, without stopping at nothing, alone or with a passenger.

With the “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 emotions.

In fact, this Multistrada can count on semi-active suspensions with travel increased to 200 mm that guarantees a higher ground clearance, on a new Power Mode dedicated to off-roading, on wider rider footpegs 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, in order to always keep the characteristics of the vehicle unchanged.

Off-road aptitude increases with the Multistrada V4 Rally thanks also 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 travel companion 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 set back to offer more space in the leg area for the passenger.

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

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.

The 1,158 cc V4 Granturismo engine delivers 170 hp (125 kW) at 10,750 rpm and 121 Nm (12.3kgm) at 8,750 rpm, with a particularly linear torque curve to ensure a smooth and progressive response at all revs.

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.

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.

In addition to a benchmark level of standard equipment for the category, the Multistrada V4 Rally also has a wide range of accessories.

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.
