Maybe 200-205 with CAT delete or factory race?

As hilarious as that would look on a racetrack, I would rather they reduce weight somehow, or ...something else.

I have no interest in a 4 cylinder Ducati at all, and when I think of ways to improve the Multi, more power is the furthest thing from my mind.

I think they are making a mistake.

Too many people here poo-pooing this before it's even ridden. Heck you don't even know what other changes are being made as well (ie. maybe it's lighter, less cat heat, comfier seat, whatever). Could be a real gem of an engine in an updated package.
Yes we know it's a change away from a twin. And we don't know the exact reason why yet. Could very well be emissions reg.
Wait and see what the end result is all I'm saying.

All valid points above regarding the favoring of the twin.

But Everyone hates the new kid on the block at first...happens every year with every model. And plus the 2020 Multi and all models will come with radar for blind spot alerts and cornering ABS.

For me i have no interest in owning any 4 cylinder engine, i don't care how good or fast it is, ill never waste my dollars going down the multi cylinder route again. Im twin till my grave....Singles for off road, twins for the highway and fours for the track......triples? well theres a place for them but they just seem to miss the mark.

I can see a space for a high performance four streetbike like the Streetfighter.
For highway use, I'm definitely with you where a twin is best for my needs and wants.

One angle that eludes all the chatter is service cost. Will the Desmo Service double in price going from a V2 to a V4?
This could be a major point of contention given that the average Multistrada owners rack-up more mileage per year than the typical sportbike riders.

I spoke with my service department about this when the Pani V4 came out, and they assured me this would not be the case. The major service will generally be more expensive, but not close to twice as expensive, probably 2-3 hundred dollars more. The rationale is that most of the cost in a Desmo service is labor to get the bike apart sufficiently to remove the heads, and re-assembly. That labor doesn't change significantly, regardless of V2 or V4.

Take that for what it's worth; obviously any Desmo service can get very expensive if the owner has thrashed the bike and it needs 3/4 of the valves re-shimmed.
