Ducati Multistrada V4 Test Mule Spotted

  • A Ducati Multistrada V4 test mule was spotted in Italy.

  • It looks similar to the current Multistrada 1260 but will definitely look different in final production form.

  • Ducati is slated to unveil 2020 models on 23rd October.

The rumours of a Ducati Multistrada V4 is now confirmed with the spotting of a test mule in Italy.

Ducati is currently looking at equipping more models with the Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine, after its introduction in the Panigale V4. Rumours of the Multistrada being next in line had started since the company’s CEO Claudio Domenicali announcement that there will be more models to utilize the engine.

Since then, we’ve seen the prototype of the Streetfighter V4 being raced at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

The video captured above shows a bike that’s very similar to the current Multistrada 1260, apart from the different exhaust. However, Ducati will surely give the V4 version a new look or a facelift, at the very least.

The V4 will definitely be detuned in the Multistrada from the 214bhp in the Panigale. The current Multistrada 1260 produces 158 bhp, so that’s a 56 bhp spread for Ducati to play with. It may be safe to say that the Multistrada V4 to hold close to 180 bhp, making it the most powerful naturally-aspirated sport-tourer.

The manufacturer has announced that they will unveil the 2020 models on 23rdOctober 2019. You can count on the Multistrada V4 as being one of them.
