Ducati has launched the most off-road oriented version of its flagship adventure bike in India - the Multistrada V4 Rally. The red colour option will set you back by Rs 29.72 lakh, while the black scheme costs Rs 30.02 lakh (ex-showroom, India). At these prices, it commands quite a significant premium over the Mulstistrada V4 S (Rs 26.73 lakh).

One of the bigger changes on this version compared to other variants of the Multistrada is the larger 30-litre fuel tank, which should allow a healthy distance between fill-ups. On the comfort front, the company has redesigned the front windscreen, making it 40mm taller and 20mm wider than before. Further improvements come in the form of revised luggage mounting points, which are placed further back and therefore increase legroom for the pillion.

Continuing with comfort improvements, the cylinder deactivation technology, which previously only functioned at a standstill, can now also deactivate the rear cylinder bank while on the move, and reactivate it on demand. Benefits of this are in the form of better fuel efficiency and less heat thrown onto the rider.

Ducati has also increased the suspension travel on the Multistrada V4 Rally to 200mm at both ends, up from 170mm (front) and 180mm (rear) on the Multistrada V4 S. There’s a new larger metal sump guard that offers better coverage to the underbelly of the bike. To accommodate differently sized riders, Ducati offers a wide array of seat and suspension options on the Multistrada V4 Rally, which can alter the seat height from an accessible 805mm to a vertigo-inducing 905mm. Also making this 260kg behemoth more manageable off the tarmac is the new Off-road power mode, which limits power to 115hp.
