Within the fourth episode of the Ducati World Première 2024 web assortment Ducati gifts the brand new V4 RS the sportiest, most sophisticated and peculiar Multistrada ever created by the Bologna essentially essentially based fully manufacturer. Produced in a numbered assortment, the Multistrada V4 RS is the most fresh addition to the family which celebrates its twentieth anniversary this Twelve months and is equipped with the Desmosedici Stradale engine, derived from that of the Panigale V4.
Due to the the V4 equipped with desmodromic distribution, the Multistrada V4 RS offers extraordinary performance and riding sensations, declaring the balance that has continuously famed the family. The expertise is made memorable by the unmistakable sound of the Desmosedici Stradale with dry grab and Akrapovič silencer, and by the appealing and tantalizing energy offer. Sensations also guaranteed by the chassis of the sportiest Multistrada in the family, thanks to Öhlins suspension, single-sided aluminium swingarm and solid rims.
The most worrying motorcyclists will admire the technical and stylistic particulars that salvage it a diverse bike in persona and substance. The RS logo, which becomes a right characterising component of the mannequin, was once designed by the Centro Stile and is shown in the livery, on the foremost and in the dashboard graphics. The slim and streamlined tail, designed completely for this bike, helps to salvage it even sportier.
The Multistrada V4 RS is a mannequin whereby every component, every component – from the electronic bundle equipped with radar technology to the very gentle titanium rear body – was once chosen with a single purpose: to build the sportiest touring bike ever. The most tantalizing Multistrada ever created by Ducati.
The Ducati Multistrada V4 RS combines the unmistakable Multistrada line, fleet-witted and dynamic, with technical solutions that recall the applied sciences utilized in racing, fashionable of Borgo Panigale’s grand sports bikes. The title RS has precisely this which manner, recalling but some other bike in Ducati historic past – the Monster S4 RS – born in line with the identical tantalizing recommendations.
The many carbon fibre ingredients such because the entrance mudguard, the hand guards (designed particularly for this mannequin), the warmth shields and the entrance “beak”, build a play of contrasts with the Iceberg White livery, enriched by diverse references to the coloration of the Desmosedici MotoGP.

The Multistrada V4 RS is the most productive one in the family to undertake the 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale engine. To combine the smoothness and regularity fashionable of the Multistrada with the persona and sporty traits of the Panigale and the Streetfighter, Ducati has intervened on the V4 acquiring a fluid and fashionable energy offer curve at low revs and at the identical time, thanks to desmodromic distribution, tantalizing strategy the limiter. A persona that may well be expressed thanks to the converse tone, which is deep at low ranges and exhilarating love on Superbikes right via acceleration at excessive rpm.
These goals were executed by adopting the air filter from the Panigale V4 R, which is extra permeable and sportier, and an converse draw with Akrapovič silencer developed particularly for the Multistrada V4 RS.
In this configuration, Euro 5+ homologated, the Desmosedici Stradale engine develops a most energy of 180 hp, with limiter at 13,500 rpm. This value was once chosen to be sure sporting performance while declaring the balance that has continuously famed the Multistrada V4 since its first version.
To salvage the quite a lot of the performance of the avenue Desmosedici, sportier and characterised by increased acceleration, the glorious ratio has been shortened while keeping the gear ratios unchanged.
Finally, as on the Panigale V4 SP2 and Streetfighter V4 SP2, the Multistrada V4 RS also facets a STM-EVO SBK dry grab made from billet aluminium, with a speak configuration of springs and slipper ramps. This component, which smooths out riding right via braking and engagement phases, also contributes to enriching the converse sound with its fashionable metal timbre when the grab is disengaged.
Among the advantages of the dry grab, we highlight the opportunity of increasing performance by the exhaust of Ducati Corse Efficiency Powered by Shell Strategy oil, the outcomes of the collaboration between Ducati Corse and Shell in Superbike and MotoGP.
To enhance the thermal comfort of the engine, the Desmosedici Stradale has been designed to deactivate the rear bank when the bike is stationary, in fair and with the engine temperature above 70°. As soon as more to provide increased comfort, on the coldest days the upwashes, the ducts that channel novel air to the rider’s legs, may well perhaps be closed.
The maintenance interval for checking valve clearance on the Multistrada V4 RS is every 30,000 km.Electronics
The Multistrada V4 RS is supplied with the developed and complex electronic bundle of the Multistrada V4 S, which comprises, amongst diverse facets, well-liked radar technology on both the entrance and rear, which permits the Adaptive Cruise Preserve a watch on (ACC) performance and Blind Space Detection (BSD).
The electronic tools of the Multistrada V4 RS, thanks to the recommendations received from the Bosch inertial platform, is made up of 4 Energy Modes (Beefy, Excessive, Medium, Low), Ducati Traction Preserve a watch on (DTC), Ducati Wheelie Preserve a watch on (DWC), Engine Brake Preserve a watch on (EBC) and Ducati Instant Shift (DQS) Up&Down.
All these systems had been calibrated for the traits and intended exhaust of the mannequin and integrated into four Riding Modes, particularly Gallop, Sport, Touring, Metropolis.
On the V4 RS, the Beefy Energy Mode (linked by default with the Gallop Riding Mode, characterised by a chequered flag above the title) is presented for the foremost time in the Multistrada family; this delivers most energy in all gears, with a suggested response from the throttle. The varied Energy Modes had been calibrated to be used on the Multistrada V4. In speak:
- Excessive (linked by default with Sport Riding Mode) offers most energy in 4th, fifth and 6th gear with a itsy-bitsy gash price in torque in 1st, 2nd and Third, with suggested throttle response.
- Medium (linked by default with Touring Riding Mode) also offers most energy in 4th, fifth and 6th gear, with a itsy-bitsy gash price in 1st, 2nd and Third, but with a sweeter throttle response.
- Low (default in Metropolis Riding Mode) with energy reduced to 84 kW (114 hp) and a gradual throttle response.
The Multistrada V4 RS shall be equipped with EBC (Engine Brake Preserve a watch on) adjustable on three ranges, which permits the rider to customize the engine braking reckoning on riding model and context.
The increased sportiness of the electronic bundle of the V4 RS is highlighted by the brand new graphics of the dashboard, which gifts a control panel on the foremost show masks with performance equivalent to the Infomode Video display of the Panigale V4 and Streetfighter V4.

The chassis of the Multistrada V4 RS is developed all around the 17″ entrance wheel, which ensures large precision and reactivity in sporty riding. This decision resulted in the choice of a monocoque aluminium body diverse from the Multistrada V4 S and Rally to create a distinct inclination of the guidance head (25.75° in comparison to 24.5°) defining the path and wheelbase values in feature of the increased sportiness of the bike, equivalent to what has already been executed on the V4 Pikes Height.
The Marchesini solid aluminium wheels, 2.7 kg lighter than these of the V4 S, salvage the dynamic behaviour of the automobile extra fleet-witted. Diablo Rosso IV Corsa tyres, in the 120/70 entrance and 190/55 rear sizes, offer beautiful grip right via acceleration and a proper sensation of contact with the floor in the centre of the curve.
The choice of Öhlins Trim EC 2.0 suspensions goes in the path of guaranteeing the perfect performance in sporting exhaust thanks to the usage of an “match essentially essentially based fully” draw, as on the Panigale V4 S and Streetfighter V4 S, which self-adjusts in line with individual riding model. The draw, already used on the Multistrada V4 Pikes Height, has been recalibrated to create the perfect balance between comfort in relaxed riding and toughen in sporty riding.
In speak, in the Touring and Sport Riding Modes the calibrations of the dynamic draw had been modified to enhance comfort right via relaxed riding and at the identical time toughen when having fun on combined mountain terrain. Moreover, to enhance riding dynamics even at paunchy load, hydraulic braking has been increased when the rider selects increased damping ranges in the many Riding Modes, in the many Load Modes with bags and passenger.
The braking draw derives in an instant from that of the Panigale V4. At the entrance, the draw involves 330 mm diameter discs and Brembo Stylema monobloc calipers, equivalent to the Multistrada V4 S, to which may furthermore be added the pads of the Panigale V4. At the rear the draw involves a single 265 mm diameter disc on which a Brembo floating caliper works. The control, with regressive kinematics, has a smaller pumping component, thus making improvements to energy and modulation. The draw is managed by the Bosch-Brembo 10.3ME Cornering ABS draw.
Moreover to the carbon fibre and titanium ingredients, a tiny battery has been adopted to further shed further kilos. In this arrangement, 3 kg are saved in comparison to the Multistrada V4 Pikes Height.
