The Multistrada V4 offers four ride modes – Travel, Enduro, Sport and Urban, each with different adjustments for engine output, traction control and ABS to suit different styles of riding.

Pre-bookings for the motorcycle began a few weeks ago. Ducati will offer factory-fitted spoked wheels on the Multistrada V4 but that bike will come in later this year.
