The Ducati Multistrada V2 series, which includes the Ducati Multistrada V2 and Ducati Multistrada V2 S, is now available, with prices starting at Rs 14.65 lakh and Rs 16.65 lakh, respectively (ex-showroom, India).

The Ducati Multistrada V2 may appear to be a rebadged 950 at first glance, but there's a lot more to it than that. To begin with, the ADV is 5kg lighter than its predecessor, weighing in at 199kg for the Standard and 203kg for the S.

In addition, Ducati has improved the ergonomics of the new Multistrada. The seat height has been reduced to 830mm (10mm lower than the Multi 950), and the seat shape has been narrowed towards the front, allowing riders to place their feet more comfortably on the ground. Ducati has also lowered and adjusted the footpegs, making the bike more comfortable for taller riders.

The Multistrada The 937cc Testastretta twin engine has witnessed some changes to its innards but is still tuned to produce the same 112PS of power as before along with a familiar peak torque figure of 96Nm. The gearbox and clutch units have received some tweaks too.

Ducati has also kept the components from the previous generation. So the regular model keeps the fully adjustable 48mm USD fork and monoshock system, but the 'S' variant gets Ducati's Skyhook electronic suspension. The Ducati Multistrada V2 has dual 320mm front discs and a 265mm rear disc, all with Brembo callipers. The 19/17-inch alloy wheel arrangement is also included, with tubeless wire-spoke rims available as an alternative.

Like most before, the new Multistrada V2 gets a good amount of rider aids and features including ABS, traction control, vehicle hold control and four riding modes - Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro. The suspension and brake setups remain the same as before but while the more expensive S variant will come with an electronically adjustable setup, you'll only be able to adjust the suspension setup manually with the Standard model.

The new Multistrada V2 takes on the likes of the BMW F 900 XR, which was updated earlier this month, and the Triumph Tiger 900 GT.
