We’ve been telling you that Ducati’s been quietly working on a new V4 Multistrada for a few months now, but we’ve not managed to get our hands on any concrete evidence that the bike is happening. Until now.
Earlier this month, the fellas over at top German magazine Motorrad reported that they’d seen the V4 in the flesh, and now Ducati’s next generation Multistrada has finally been caught on camera testing out on the open road in Italy – and there’s a photo and video to prove it.
Ok, so the new bike doesn’t really look any different to the current Ducati Multistrada 1260 – aside from its new exhaust system. But it’s underneath that hulking exterior where the exciting stuff’s happening. Watching the video, it’s immediately clear that it’s not powered by the same old v-twin engine – instead it gets Ducati’s MotoGP-inspired V4 engine. Just listen to the thing.
Considering Ducati seems to be well into the testing process, we’re expecting to see the new Strada in the flesh at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan this November – in time for a 2020 release.
