Ducati Multistrada V4 RS listed on Indian website, launch expected soon

Ducati India has listed the Multistrada V4 RS on its website. It is expected to be launched in the Indian market soon. The Ducati Multistrada V4 RS is a more power-packed version of the adventure tourer, which is closer to the track in terms of performance than off-road trails. Let's know about it.

The Multistrada V4 RS is powered by a 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine that produces 177 bhp at 12,250 rpm and 118 Nm at 9,500 rpm. This makes the Multi V4 RS the most powerful motorcycle in its class. In contrast, the standard Multistrada V4 with the Granturismo engine makes 170 bhp. The RS also gets an Akrapovic exhaust among other upgrades.

The bike features 17-inch Marchesini forged aluminum wheels and a titanium subframe that weighs 2.5 kg less than the other Multi variants. The tail section lacks the pillion grab handle and top box mounting bracket, making it a significantly lighter option.

Suspension duties are handled by new 48mm Ohlins fully adjustable front forks with titanium nitride (TiN) and an Ohlins TTX36 fully adjustable mono-shock in the rear. Twin 330mm semi-floating disc brakes with radially mounted Brembo Stylema monobloc four-piston calipers up front and a radial master cylinder provide braking performance.

The rear brake is a Brembo two-piston floating caliper with a 265mm disc. The seat height of the sporty model can be adjusted between 840mm and 860mm.

The Multistrada V4 RS has four modes: full, high, medium, and low. It also gets traction control, wheelie control, engine brake control, and a full power mode to get maximum performance. The Ducati Multistrada V4 RS will primarily compete with the BMW M 1000 XR in the segment and is likely to be priced around Rs 30 lakh (ex-showroom).
