    NEW Ducati V4 Multistrada

    NEW Ducati V4 Multistrada data has been released ( https://www.ducati.com/ww/en/bikes/multistrada/multistrada-v4 ). Looks fantastic!! Unfortunately, all models have a 19 inch front wheel & 17 inch rear wheel. Looks like they are trying to compete with the BMW GSA, KTM 1290 Adventure, etc.. Good news for BMW & XR owners. Best,

    I think you meant the other way round(don't want to be putting any fake news out there)??

    19inch front
    17inch rear

    Clearly aimed very squarely at the KTM 1290 Adv and not the XR. Very expensive with all the packs added, butt ugly and the claimed "up to 170bhp" will be more like 150 odd in real world.

    I am amazed.

    4 years warranty and 37,000 miles between valve checks, with servicing every two years?

    Cheap to run Ducatis?

    Ugly or not, I'll take it for a test ride. I always found the Shyhook suspension better than the XR's and more customizable.
    If the sound is anything like the V4 Streetfighter, it could be a contender.
    I'm always worried about their reliability though... A 4 year warranty is worthless if the bike spends most of its time at the dealer.

    Having spent a couple years driving the display truck for them here in the UK, I’d never discount anything they produce....but 19” front that’ll be a No Thanks, and i’d not Be too surprised to see KTM turn up with the same in the future.

    KTM 1290 Adv already runs 19" front

    Yes, looks more a GS rival than an XR rival. Will never consider a ducati though after my last experience. I had a multi that was an absolute dog.
