Ducati has launched the Multistrada V2 by replacing the Multistrada 950 S. The Indian market gets both the standard Multistrada V2 and the top-spec Multistrada V2 S variant. It also comes with a few updates and improvements for the extra money compared to the Multi 950.
The 937cc Testastretta twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine from the Multistrada 950 is retained in the new Multistrada V2 series. The Multistrada V2 is tuned to produce 111.5 bhp and 10 kgm of peak torque paired to a 6-speed gearbox. Ducati has also managed to lower the weight of the motorcycle by 5 kg.
On the Multistrada V2 S variant, you get Ducati Skyhook Suspension EVO semi-active suspension system. While the standard bike gets a manual-adjustable system. Also, both the variants get 320 mm rotors with Brembo monobloc callipers up front and a single 265-mm disc with a Brembo calliper at the rear. Other goodies on the S variant include cruise control, Ducati Cornering Lights and Ducati Quick Shift Up and Down.
The Multistrada range comes with a long list of features, starting with a full-LED lighting, a 5-inch colour TFT display, cornering ABS, traction control, vehicle hold control and four riding modes (Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro).
All this will set you back by Rs 14.65 lakh for the standard Multistrada V2, and if you fancy the top-spec variant, then it’ll cost you Rs 16.65 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, India). Also, if you’re bored of the classic Ducati Red livery on your Multistrada V2 S, then you can pay Rs 19,000 more and get it in Street Grey Livery. In this segment, the Multistrada V2 S competes with the BMW F 900 XR and the Triumph Tiger 900. Not so long ago, we also did a comparison story between the Multi 950 S and the F 900 XR, you can read all about it here.
