Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak: Everything becomes more sporty
Multistrada V4 - Safer, smoother, more exciting than ever.
Maintaining all of the benefits of the V4 S, the Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak for 2022 gets a much sportier attitude. The wheels are lightweight Marchesini rims saving some 2.7 kg compared to the standard bike. A 17″ front wheel, with very much road focused Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tyres. The combination of these three changes gives this version unparalleled agility. The gearbox has been modified so that 1st & 2nd gear are closer ratio, adding to the initial punch at take off. 6th gear is taller allowing for higher top end speeds whilst reducing the revs.
The frame geometry has been changed whilst also utilising a single sided swingarm. Rider footrest position has been moved up and back by 10mm and handlebars are narrower and lower than the standard MultistradaV4 to further enhance the sports attitude of this magnificent new model. The electronics package has also been adapted to compliment the sportier soul of the new Pikes Peak.
With a seat height from 810mm with the use of a “Low Seat” accessory option (That still has 50mm of foam) to 875mm using a high seat. The Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak comes as standard with Ohlins Electronic Smart EC suspension, 33omm discs with Stylema Brembo calipers, a 6.5 inch TFT full colour dashboard with “Ducati Connect”, cornering full LED headlights, hands free ignition system, vehicle hold control (hill start assist), cruise control and DQS (quick shifter) Up and Down.
With the 22 litre fuel tank, you really can be ready to do the distance……..Quickly!!
Technical features of the Multistrada V4 are vast so here is a link to the Owners Manual for those that would like to learn more. In addition to this, Ducati have created an Interaction Experience so you can play with the switchgear “virtually” and see the effects on the bike/dash without being near the bike. Video tutorials can be found at the bottom of that page.

Ducati Multistrada V4 “Best All-Rounder” in the 2021 MCN Awards along with Ducati getting the “Manufacturer of the year” accolade.
The maximum security on any road
Pleasure of driving becomes a sense of well-being.
The optional radar positioned in the front of the vehicle controls the operation of the ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control), which by means of controlled braking and acceleration automatically adjusts the distance (selectable on four levels) from other vehicles when riding at a speed between 30 and 160 km/h. The system allows for more comfortable riding, especially on long motorway journeys.
The rear radar, on the other hand, is able to detect and report vehicles positioned in the so-called blind spot. The BSD (Blind Spot Detection) system also signals vehicles that are approaching at higher speed from behind potentially allowing for evasive action to be taken.
Add to that the ability to have an exceptional satellite navigation system displayed in the bike dashboard, the option of heated handlebar grips and seats to be retro fitted. A to B can be achieved easily, safely and in comfort.
The full travel kit of Panniers and Top box are all available as accessories that can also be retro fitted.
Stand out from the crowd
As we have grown to expect, the new livery for the 2022 Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak is a thing of beauty. This new design will be the highlight of the bike park. Enhanced with the carbon fibre beak and front mudguard, a tinted sports screen and coming as standard with the Euro 5 homologated Akrapovic Titanium/Carbon exhaust. Now, with Ducati’s signature single sided swing arm being utilised, the package is complete.
Want to enhance performance? The Akrapovic full race exhaust system offers a further 10bhp to this already very powerful engine.
As we have grown to expect from Ducati, even the components that make up the engine are a thing of beauty. See the video

All New V4 engine specific to Multistrada
More pleasurable for everyday use.
For the fourth generation of the Multistrada, Ducati has developed a new, light and compact V4 engine, designed to meet the needs required for “adventouring” use without neglecting emotion and sportiness.
The complete redesign made it possible to reach record-breaking maintenance intervals for the world of two wheels. Valve clearance intervals have been increased to 37,500 miles (One and a half times around the world) and oil change intervals are now 9,375 or every two years. Add to this the 4 year, Europe wide unlimited mileage warranty to give you the knowledge that this bike is truly built to do the distance.
The all new V4 Granturismo engine is both smaller and lighter than the previous L-twin 1260 Multistrada engine – 85mm shorter, 95mm height reduction with only 20mm increase in width (weight loss 1.2kg). This has meant that the compact layout allows more flexibility of the housing of the engine in the frame, more effectively and centrally to positively influence the position of the bike’s center of gravity. Add to this the proven benefits of the counter clockwise rotation of the crankshaft that works to negate the centrifugal forces of the wheels, aiding fast directional changes as well as reducing squat and helping to reduce front wheel lift.
The benefits offered by this all new engine plant are enormous. Not only in the vastly improved power delivery, but in chassis agility and not least the ongoing cost of maintenance – All delivered with 4 years peace of mind.
