Ducati has made the new Multistrada V4 Rally a more comfortable bike for long journeys. Ducati has raised tweaked the front windscreen which is now 40mm taller and 20mm wider than before. The V4 Rally also gets 200mm suspension travel on both ends which is 30mm more compared to the front end of the regular bike and 20mm more at the rear.

The seat on the Multistrada V4 Rally features multiple seat height options ranging from 805m to 905mm to help cater to a wide variety of riders. The new Multistrada V4 Rally sports features like revised luggage mounts that allow the pillion rider to access the extra legroom while sitting at the back. The Multistrada V4 Rally from Ducati also features an elongated tail section.

Other changes come in the form of the larger fuel tank that can now hold up to 30 litres of fuel making long journeys an absolute joy. To ensure that fuel lasts even longer, Ducati has added a more advanced cylinder deactivation technology to the Multistrada V4. In the new V4, Ducati deactivated the rear bank of two cylinders and this action can now be done even when the bike is on the move unlike before when it had to be brought to a halt to activate the feature.

The Ducati Multistrada also features a new riding mode dubbed off-road which limits the power output from the 1,158cc V4 engine to just 113.4bhp which should make excursions off the beaten path a lot more amenable. Otherwise, the 90-degree V4 engine continues to push out 167.6bhp at 10,750rpm and 121Nm of peak torque at 8,750rpm. The engine on the 260-kilogramme motorcycle is paired to a 6-speed gearbox with straight-cut gears.
