Ducati Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour

The most complete Multistrada V4 ever, for lovers of long-distance travel in maximum comfort and safety.

For the second episode of the 2024 World Première, Ducati presents the new Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour: a model dedicated to Ducatisti who love to travel without limits, in maximum comfort and safety. A Multistrada for travelers who pay attention to details, who always demand the best from their Ducati. A complete motorcycle fitted with all the accessories to travel long distances “in first class” style. The Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour arrives during the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Multistrada and encapsulates all the values and characteristics that have always made it a motorcycle ahead of its time. The Multistrada has always been the flagship model on which Ducati has introduced innovations and technological developments to redefine the standards in the motorcycle industry.

The Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour is a fully optioned motorcycle based on the S model with Travel & Radar setup. Standard equipment includes a radar system with adaptive cruise control (ACC) and blind spot detection (BSD) to improve safety and riding comfort. To further enhance safety, the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), which shows the tire pressure on the dashboard, and additional LED lights (standard) to improve visibility at night and in fog, is fitted as standard on the Grand Tour.

The side cases, standard on the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour, are integrated with the new livery of the Grand Tour. With a storage volume of 60 liters, they allow you to take everything you need, even on longer journeys. The center stand, included in the standard equipment, helps to make accessibility to the side cases easier and safer, from assembly and disassembly to opening and closing.

Comfort on the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour is also ensured by the standard equipment of heated grips and rider and passenger seats. Furthermore, the presence of the electronic fuel cap simplifies refuelling, allowing you to always keep the keyless fob safe in your pocket.

Finally, the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour incorporates several updates adopted on the V4 Rally. The handlebar is in fact mounted rigidly on the steering head to deliver a more direct riding feeling without compromising comfort. The passenger seat is the model introduced on the V4 Rally, for optimal support on long journeys, and like that of the rider, it is embellished with a dedicated design.

Furthermore, to improve thermal comfort, the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour adopts heat shields on the swingarm and on the left side of the rear subframe, as well as closable ducts in the leg area. The smartphone charging compartment is now ventilated.

As on all the models of the Multistrada V4 family, the Grand Tour is also equipped with the navigation system based on the Phone Mirroring solution, which allows you to transform the 6.5-inch TFT dashboard into a color map navigator with all the necessary information for operating the motorcycle.

On the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour, there is the Minimum Preload function, which allows the rider to lower the motorcycle when stopping and when traveling at low speed by reducing shock absorber preload to a minimum. The Easy Lift function, on the other hand, reduces the effort required to lift the motorbike from the side stand by opening the suspension hydraulics when the key is on.

The Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour completes the family made up of the V4 Pikes Peak, designed for lovers of sporty riding, and the Multistrada V4 Rally, dedicated to globetrotters who don’t stop even when the tarmac roads come to an end.

The Multistrada V4 is designed to allow Ducatisti to travel without limits in maximum peace of mind thanks to benchmark maintenance intervals (valve clearance check set every 37,000 miles (60,000 kilometers) — all this with the peace of mind offered by a network of more than 800 official Ducati dealers in over 90 countries around the world.

Styling

The Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour is enhanced by dedicated elegant and dynamic graphics. The livery of the superstructures is reflected in the black color for the frame, swingarm, fork clamps, side cases and handlebars. The rider and passenger seats are embellished with dedicated graphics.

Engine

The 1,158cc V4 Granturismo engine delivers 170 horsepower (125 kilowatts) at 10,500 rpm and 92 pound-feet (125 newton meters) at 8,750 rpm, with a particularly linear torque curve to guarantee a smooth and progressive response at all speeds. The performance of this engine allows the V4 Granturismo to confirm itself as the category benchmark for power and lightness. These numbers are combined with refined technical solutions, such as the counter-rotating crankshaft, derived from the experience gained by Ducati Corse in MotoGP, which counteracts the gyroscopic inertia of the wheels, allowing for light steering action. The results are a fluid delivery at low rpm, robust torque at medium speeds and power at high speeds.

Electronics

In addition to the systems already mentioned, the electronic package of the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour offers the state of the art in the motorcycle sector for safety, comfort, performance and connectivity. The inertial platform (IMU) manages the operation of anti-lock brake (ABS) Cornering, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Cornering Lights (DCL) and Vehicle Hold Control (VHC), which makes restarting on inclined roads simple.

On the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour, the chassis communicates continuously with the Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS) semi-active suspension control system. This system is not only capable of analyzing riding conditions and adjusting the fork and shock absorber hydraulics instantly, but for the first time it also integrates the auto-leveling function.

Auto-leveling recognizes the bike’s setup and adjusts it autonomously to bring the seat back to the ideal height from the ground in the different riding configurations, adding to the (manual) options already available to the user: rider, rider plus cases, rider and passenger, rider and passenger plus cases. The tire pressure monitoring system is also available as an accessory for the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour.

Finally, the smartphone mirroring functions, implemented through the Ducati Connect system, allow you to control your phone and music in a simple and intuitive way.

Customization

However, the complete equipment of the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour offers ample margin for customization. To meet the ergonomic needs of the rider and passenger, the accessories catalogue offers a variety of saddles, a motorcycle lowering set and several options for the windshield.

Ducatisti who wish to further enhance the tourer qualities of the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour can adopt additional luggage solutions, designed for both the tank and the rear plate, such as a top case or soft bag.

It is also possible to make the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour sportier and embellish it with different carbon fiber trim components, levers and footrests machined from solid aluminum, dynamic LED indicators, and brake and clutch fluid reservoirs machined from solid.

Apparel

Ducati has also specifically created some items of apparel to fully enjoy the touring possibilities of the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour. The Atacama C2 suit, for example, with large areas dedicated to ventilation, detachable sleeves and three independent layers, including thermal lining and waterproof membrane, offers comfort in all weather conditions.

Alternatively, the Strada C5 suit is made of a comfortable, robust stretch fabric with modular thermal protection, thanks to the detachable internal Gore-Tex membrane and an internal down jacket that can also be used on its own once the motorbike is parked.
