The Borgo Panigale company continues its web series and today presents the brand new V4 model, the sportiest Multistrada ever. A bike that represents, since its introduction into the range, the essence of sportiness in the Ducati dual family. The Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak is also the most powerful model in the crossover segment.
The new two-wheeler just presented comes from the excellent base of the Multistrada V4, offers the performance, fluidity and reliability of the V4 Granturismo engine, low weight, ease of driving, comfort for both rider and passenger, excellent equipment and latest generation electronics: all the cornerstones of the Multistrada V4 family.
Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak was created by introducing major changes in terms of chassis, ergonomics and electronic controls and a series of dedicated components. With this new model, the Borgo Panigale company responds to motorcyclists looking for the purest performance within the dual world. The design is developed starting from the characteristic elements of the Multistrada V4 family, integrated with two elements that identify the Pikes Peak version, the 17 ”front wheel and the single-sided swingarm.
The motorcycle shows its great sportiness also thanks to the presence of numerous parts in carbon fiber and the Akrapovič approved silencer in titanium and carbon. We see other unique elements, such as the low smoked plexi, the gold anodizing of the Öhlins fork sliders, the two-tone black and red rear saddle with the V4 logo and the Ducati Corse shield applied to the beak.
The chassis of the V4 Pikes Peak it has been profoundly modified compared to the Multistrada V4 (record-breaking bike) and is developed around the 17 ”front wheel, which ensures the rider great precision and reactivity. The braking system is at the top of the segment and derives from that of the Panigale V4. The bike boasts ergonomics specifically designed to ensure maximum control and optimize lean angles. The driving position is different from that of the Multistrada V4, the footpegs are higher and set back to increase the maximum lean angle, the handlebar is lower, narrower and has a less accentuated curvature.
The new Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak mounts the most powerful engine in its class, the V4 Granturismo, which releases 170 HP of power and 125 Nm of maximum torque, created specifically by Ducati for the Multistrada V4 family, is particularly light and compact with a weight of only 66.7 kg.
The engine has been optimized to enhance the characteristics of the bike and presents some new features, such as the introduction of the Riding Mode Race for the first time on a Multistrada. The Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak inherits the advanced and sophisticated electronic package of the Multistrada V4 S, which includes, among others, the standard radar technology both at the front and at the rear, which enables the function of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC, Adaptive Cruise Control) and Blind Spot Detection (BSD).
The TFT dashboard with a 6.5 “screen, also standard on the Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak, allows the driver to view the map navigator thanks to Ducati Connect, which allows you to mirror your mobile device. The new born in the Ducati House is a technologically advanced motorcycle, designed for motorcyclists who love the adrenaline of sports driving and will be available in dealerships from December.
