Ducati is expected to launch the Multistrada V2 in India on April 25, 2022. The new adventure tourer will replace the Multistrada 950 in Ducati's line-up.

The Multistrada V2 features a familiar design with twin headlamps and a prominent beak. Ducati has been able to shave a few kilos off thanks to a new clutch and gearbox.

The bike now weighs between 221.8 kg and 224.9 kg, depending on the variant.

Powering the Multistrada V2 is a 937cc, liquid-cooled L-twin engine that produces 111 BHP @ 9,000 rpm and 96 Nm @ 7,750 rpm, and comes paired with a 6-speed gearbox.

The bike comes with four riding modes - Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro. The S variant comes with a bi-directional quickshifter as standard.

The Multistrada V2 features adjustable Sachs shocks at the front, while the S version gets Ducati's Skyhook EVO semi-active suspension.

Braking is handled by twin 320 mm discs at the front and a single 265 mm disc at the rear.

The Multistrada V2 comes equipped with a 5-inch digital instrument console.

The S variant gets backlit switchgear, cruise control, heated grips, a hands-free system, among other features.

The Ducati Multistrada V2 will take on the BMW F 900 XR and the Triumph Tiger 900
