The Ducati Multistrada V4 has been enjoying a lot of attention from the press ever since its first spy shots started circulating the internet. As the newest adventure tourer from the house of Bologna, the Multistrada V4 is set to make its global debut in just a few days. With that being said, Ducati has just released its final teaser revealing an important aspect of its latest V4 engine platform.
Its latest theorem, entitled ‘The world is not enough’ tells us that the valve clearance service interval for the new V4 engine used in the motorcycle is more than enough to circle the whole globe. The new teaser reads “One trip around the world is 40,075 km across. The world is not enough for us. Try 60,000 km.” For reference, the current generation Multistrada 1260 can last for 16,000 kilometers between oil services and 30,000 kilometers before needing a full Desmo service.
Most Ducati owners are aware of how tedious and integral a full Desmo service could be for every Ducati bike. It involves a more thorough check-up that covers the belts, filters, plugs, and most importantly, the valve clearances seen in the Desmodromic valve set up. Would-be buyers of a second-hand Ducati bike due for a Desmo service is already considered a red flag for experienced owners.
Thankfully, engineers from the motorcycle manufacturer from Bologna managed to double the usability of the new V4 engine before a full Desmo service would be required. With the new V4 engine having more moving parts, twice as many pistons, and 20 hp more than its predecessor, being able to go further is an engineering feat in itself.
With major motorcycle brands now trying to outdo each other when it comes to their virtual launches, Ducati is set to finally reveal the new Multistrada V4 in its finished form and full glory. Lucky for us, we only have to wait just a couple of more days.
