The Ducati 2022 World Premiere series has officially begun, with the first episode being the introduction of the new Multistrada V2.
Featuring new refined graphics which show the name of the bike on both sides, the new Multistrada V2 is equipped with the latest evolution of the 937 cc Testastretta 11° unit, producing 113 hp and 98 Nm of maximum torque.
The engine has extended maintenance intervals, with oil change every 15,000 km and valve clearance check every 30,000 km.
Important improvements to the engine include new connecting rods, new 8-disc hydraulic clutch, and an updated gearbox which guarantees greater fluidity and precision in shifting, also facilitating the engagement of neutral.
Ducati claims that the bike’s chassis is agile and intuitive, with a 19″ front wheel that ensures a smooth, comfortable ride, always with the right level of reactivity and precision.
Complementing the powertrain and chassis is the Ducati Skyhook Suspension EVO semi-active suspension system (standard on the S version), which can absorb roughness and unevenness of the ground and always guarantee the ideal set-up of the vehicle, improving safety and comfort.
Important development work has been made on the ergonomics of the bike, to make it more comfortable and more intuitive, able to put any rider at ease in any situation.
The height has been reduced to 830 mm, with a redesigned shape of the saddle which is now narrower and more compact between the rider’s legs to allow you to easily touch the ground with your feet thanks to an inseam arch of only 1790mm.
The seat has also been redesigned, providing a flat area that guarantees the rider freedom of movement.
The riding position is now more comfortable with the new footpegs inherited from the Multistrada V4 which, thanks to a 10 mm increase in distance from the seat, ensure the right amount of room also for taller riders, preventing them from bending their legs excessively, and thus allowing a more restful position during long journeys.
Another key area of improvement is the reduction in the bike’s weight, which, through work on many elements, has resulted in a reduction of 5 kg in weight compared to the Multistrada 950.
The engine update has produced a saving of about 2 kg, including the clutch (1.5 kg) and its cover, gearbox drum and connecting rods.
Various parts of the vehicle have been lightened, including the mirrors, derived from Multistrada V4, the front brake disc flanges and the rims. Spoked wheels are also available in the Ducati Performance catalogue, which have been significantly lightened.
The Multistrada V2 is equipped as standard with ABS Cornering, Vehicle Hold Control, Ducati Traction Control, four Riding Modes (Sport, Touring, Urban, Enduro), and the new Ducati Brake Light system.
The S version gets extras like Cruise Control, full-LED headlight equipped with Ducati Cornering Lights, Ducati Quick Shift Up & Down, Hands Free system, and a high resolution 5” colour TFT dashboard with intuitive interface and backlit handlebar controls.
The colour range consists of the classic “Ducati Red” colour with black rims, available for both Multistrada V2 and Multistrada V2 S, together with the new “Street Grey” livery with black frame and “GP Red” rims, which can only be ordered for the version S.
For the Multistrada V2 family there are two trim levels that can be ordered directly from the factory. The Essential trim is available for both Multistrada V2 and Multistrada V2 S, while the Travel trim, with side bags, heated grips and central stand, can only be ordered for the S version.
