third episode of the Ducati World Première 2022 was dedicated by the Borgo
Panigale-based manufacturer to the online reveal of the new Multistrada V4
Pikes Peak namely the model that best represents, since its debut in the range,
the true essence of sportiness within the Ducati dual bikes family.
Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak takes centre-stage for a public of passionate
enthusiasts not only as the sportiest Multistrada ever but also as the most
powerful model in the whole crossover segment.
new V4 Pikes Peak was developed by introducing significant changes in terms of
chassis set-up, premium ergonomics, electronic controls as well as numerous
dedicated components, which give the bike a distinctly sportier attitude
compared to the Multistrada V4.
racing soul of the bike is intensified by the dedicated “Pikes Peak” livery,
faithfully inspired both in colours and graphics by that of the Desmosedici
GP’21; even the number plates on both sides of the fuel tank contribute to
highlight the deep link with the world of competitions.
the aim to further emphasise its sporty-oriented attitude the new Multistrada
V4 Pikes Peak comes with a wide range of components made of carbon fibre in
addition to the Akrapovic titanium and carbon silencer (road-approved). Others
distinctive aesthetic elements are the low smoked plexi, Öhlins front fork
anodised gold legs, two-tone Black and Red rear saddle embellished with the V4
logo and the Ducati Corse badge applied to the “beak”.
chassis compartment of the new Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak is part of the
revolution. With the respect to the Multistrada V4, it has in fact been
significantly revised. First and foremost, it has been developed around the 17”
front wheel, which ensures the rider great precision and responsiveness.
new machine is fitted with sports road tyres (sizes: 120/70 front; 190/55-17
rear) and mounts Marchesini forged aluminum rims, 2.7 kg lighter than those of
the Multistrada V4 S, which make the dynamic behaviour of the vehicle therefore
more effective and contribute to the reduction of the total weight amount of 4
kg compared to the Multistrada V4 S.
Additionally, Öhlins SmartEC 2.0 suspension
also guarantees brilliant performance in sports riding, through the use of an
“event based” mode, the same adopted by the Panigale V4 S and the Streetfighter
V4 S, which automatically adjusts the setting according to the user’s riding
aluminum monocoque frame has been refreshed with the precise objective of
achieving a different inclination of the steering head (25.75° compared to the
24.5° of the Multistrada V4), not to mention that trail and wheelbase geometry
have been recalibrated according to the different uses of the motorcycle.
the new V4 Pikes Peak, Ducati offers class-leading braking system: the front
relies on 330 mm discs and Brembo Stylema monobloc calipers, directly derived
from the Panigale V4 system. At the rear, instead, the braking system is the
same as the Multistrada V4 and V4 S, counting on a single 265 mm disc combined
with a Brembo floating caliper.
new Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak stands out even for its dedicated ergonomics,
specifically designed to ensure maximum control and optimise lean angles. With
respect to the Multistrada V4 the riding position has been completely
refreshed: the footpegs, for example, are higher and moved back to increase the
maximum lean angle, while the handlebar is lower, narrower and has contained curved
bars. The final result is that the rider benefits of an even better feeling in
sporty riding while maintaining an excellent level of comfort.
new Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak is powered by the most powerful engine
within the category, the admired V4 Granturismo, achieving 170 hp with a
maximum torque of 125 Nm at 8,750 rpm. This engine, specifically designed by
Ducati for the Multistrada V4 family, results extremely lightweight - 66.7 kg
only - and compact. Thanks to these features Ducati engineers create an
uncompromised equilibrium with perfect mass centralization. With a displacement
of 1160 cc, the V4 Granturistmo engine ensures top-of-the-segment power and
torque levels. In addition, the V4 Granturismo represents also a reference in
terms of versatility and reliability, featuring a record-breaking maintenance
intervals, with valve play checks scheduled every 60,000 km.
V4 Granturismo engine has been optimised to intensify the characteristics of
the bike and features some innovations. Among these, the introduction of the
Race Riding Mode, which represents a first for Multistrada models. The Race
option is added to a more racing strategy for the limiter, which intervenes
more gradually than in the Multistrada V4, in order to alert the biker in
advance and allow him a more effective sporty drive in terms of gear changes
within the high area of the rev counter. The quickshifter also has a dedicated
strategy that allows extremely aggressive downshifts, as well as the
implementation of an even more direct throttle response in High Power Mode.
Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak inherits the latest generation and sophisticated
electronic package of the Multistrada V4 S, which includes, among others, the
as-standard radar technology both at the front and at the rear, which offers
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Blind Spot Detection (BSD) functionality.
6.5” TFT dashboard, also available as standard on the Multistrada V4 Pikes
Peak, allows the user to view the map navigator thanks to the advanced Ducati
Connect system, which allows to mirror the rider’s smartphone.
innovations are, also in this case, aimed at obtaining a better sporty driving
experience. In addition to the introduction of the Race Riding Mode, Ducati
Wheelie Control on the Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak has an updated strategy that
offers an even better response and a more accurate control during dynamic
riding. ABS Cornering has also been configured to be safe and performing in
whatever riding situation, even in the sportiest.
Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak is a technologically advanced motorcycle, designed
for those who love the thrill of sporty riding, especially on mountainous
twisties or between the kerbs of a racetrack.
