Ducati teasing changes to engine?

Looks like new updates every week through October

4 is lighter than 2

v4 multistrada

Hrm, now that I would be interested in. I like the look of the Multistradas but their V2 engine is a bit agricultural for my tastes.

Wonder if they will improve reliability?

“A new paradigm that elevates the sportiness written in our DNA towards fresh horizons of versatility and reliability.”

Is that Ducati admitting previous reliability issues :thinking:

Not sure what time but Theorom 2 is due to be released today at some point

Sometime tomorrow, maybe. They’re Italian after all.

Theorem #2
The Power is smooth

170 HP of pure sportiness . Powerful, smooth and always ready when needed. For a distinctive character , even more Ducati, at low, medium and high rpm.

A powerful engine, but not superbike territory. Presumably it’s tuned for torque? V4 Multistrada sounds more plausible now!


So a V4 Multistrada is on the way coupled with radar technology but seems weird to announce that prior to this new tease Completing , could it be something else too then?

give this mine a beer! or a test ride

More info:

Radar-enabled adaptive cruise control and rear-approaching risk detection.

Also nice shot of it off road.

I’m super interested now. By default I would gravitate towards the R1250GS for a touring machine but this is starting to challenge that.

More electrics and electronics on an Italian bike. Hope they come with a very long warranty.

Lots, or maybe everything?

But Ducati are promising improved reliability :lying_face: :face_with_monocle:

I hope that it becomes reality, but are they going to back it up with a great warranty? BMW are now doing 3 years, if Ducati do 5 years I very well might be tempted, if not I’ll take a pass.

Three years would do me, I don’t keep a bike longer than that anyhow it seems. They should at least incorporate warranty into the finance term, like a lease.

Theorem #3
The world is not enough.

The earth’s circumference is 40,075 km across.
Try 60,000 km.

Surely not going to offer a 60km warranty? Aka 5yr/12k per year


If they do I might be interested. And it certainly would help the public image of Ducati being unreliable.
