Ducati Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour Edition: New Updates

The Multistrada V4 S GT sports a new livery with Grey, Black, and Red highlights on the bodywork and a new pillion seat. It also gets a centre stand and colour-coordinated panniers as standard. On some models, the centre stand is an optional feature, making it easier for loading, unloading, and performing minor maintenance tasks. Other extras on the Ducati include heated grips, heated seats, and a rigidly mounted handlebar, which, according to Ducati, improves the rider's experience. Ducati provides heat-controlling vents, which can be closed near the legs, and a vent on the phone charging box to ensure that gadgets don’t get overheated during charging.

The bike also gets a Minimum Preload option for shorter riders, which can effectively lower the seat height to allow both feet to touch the ground when the motorcycle reaches a standstill. Additionally, the motorcycle has an Easy Lift feature, which, when activated, lowers the bike, thereby making it simpler to roll the vehicle off the stand. Once the motorcycle starts moving, the suspension is reset to the rider's preference.
