V4 Multistrada

I got this off of FaceBook so it has to be true!!!!!!!!

"From 2020, Ducati will supplement the Multistrada series with a V4 model with around 190 hp and an innovative safety package.

The test drives around the plant in the Borgo Panigale district of Bologna have been going on for a year and a half, in 2020 the Multistrada V4 is finally to come. A recently caught Erlkönig shows that the sleek silhouette of the two-cylinder bikes is maintained by the narrow four-cylinder engine. Even otherwise, the prototype of the current V2-Multi looks very similar, which design updates Ducati the V4 variant still donated, remains to be seen.

I'd imagine the V4 would end up in most of their models in the next few years. Big twin engines are more or less maxxed out and if Duc doesn't evolve they'll become the Italian Harley. Ducatis with 1800cc L twin engines would be pretty stupid LOL

190hp for a MTS sounds kinda high, but would be pretty sweet.

If there's any truth to this it could pursauade me to stay on a diavel for a few years and either trade for a V4 MTS in a few years or maybe add one to the garage.

I could see a leftover 1260 MTS in my future if the rumored V4 MTS makes them obsolete. And a heck of a lot cheaper.

I've had my 2015 for a week. I can count on no hands the amount of times I wished it had more power.

I haven't even put it into sport mode yet.

Given that Ducati has moved the Multi in a more touring focused direction consistently since the last major redesign in 2010, it's hard to believe they would increase the HP that much. I could see them bumping it up to 170 though, just to take the crown back from KTM.

190 HP with radar controlled cruise control/braking/lane changing...pretty sweet!!

Just hope the ENDURO comes first as the reg multi range of 160 miles sucks ass.

Update...i could be in luck ...codename "TrailMaxi"

Well, REAL men (and some very fast women riders on this forum) know that they really need a motorcycle with no less than 200 HP and 200 FT LBS of torque.




Yeah, I have scared myself silly a few times on my 2012. It is plenty capable of killing me as is. Never say never, but unless a more powerful bike fits me like a glove or the looks just catch my eye, I think my days of needing huge HP and torque are done.

Will auto-braking eventually mean that if you're coming into a corner too hot the bike just won't let you do it?

All that will be left in the electric, fully GPS enable world will be to find the best line and gun it.
