The 2022 Ducati Multistrada 950 motorcycle has received minor improvements and rebranding as the Multistrada V2.
The new Ducati Multistrada V2 is the first in a series of planned premieres by the Italian brand. Basically, nothing has changed radically other than the name, which now matches the other mid-size bikes in the Ducati range.
Besides the labeling, another important change is the split into two versions. The top-of-the-line Ducati Multistrada V2 S comes with a semi-active Skyhook suspension, a 5-inch LCD screen, up and down quickshifters, and illuminated steering wheel switches. On both versions, the saddle height was lowered by 10 mm, and the saddle shape became narrower. The motorcycle should be more comfortable for people of short stature. In addition, there is an optional 790mm saddle. The taller folks shouldn’t worry as the footpegs have been lowered 10mm, which means legroom hasn’t changed. New mirrors add to the overall picture.
Italian engineers have found a way to reduce the weight of the 937 cc Ducati Testastretta 11 ° engine by 2 kg, while the total weight is reduced by 5 kg. The basic version of the Multistrada V2 weighs 221 kg with a full tank of 24 liters. Multistrada V2 S weighs 225 kg with all fluids.
The base model starts at $ 15,295 and the S version starts at $ 17,895.
