Ducati Multistrada V4 RS – On the track in search of adrenaline or on the road: whatever your destination, the Multistrada V4 RS will elevate your Multistrada experience to a new dimension of exclusivity.

Ducati Multistrada V4 RS – The motorcycle will be available at Ducati dealerships from January 2024 in a single configuration, which includes front and rear radar as standard. The motorcycle is available in the exclusive Iceberg White livery.
Never has Ducati created a Multistrada with such racing DNA. The latest addition to the family comes in the year Ducati celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the Multistrada Dynasty.
Ready to travel
The Multistrada V4 RS combines supersport character with the versatility typical of the Multistrada family. It is suitable for use with different types of luggage, from plastic side cases to tank and passenger seat bags, and also features a larger windshield.
Desmosedici Stradale: racing DNA
Ducati Multistrada V4 RS – Having won the hearts of the Ducatisti on the Panigale and Streetfighter, the 1103 cc Desmosedici Stradale comes to the Multistrada as a specific version with revised calibration and 180 hp, combining sports performance with the balance for which the family has always stood out.
Dry clutch: an unmistakable signature
Ducati Multistrada V4 RS – Just like the Panigale V4 R and V4 SP, the Multistrada V4 RS also features the STM EVO-SBK dry clutch in billet aluminum. A component that does not just ensure a smoother ride when braking and shifting but also, with the clutch disengaged, a sound that is unmistakably Ducati.
Electronics beyond state-of-the-art
The Ducati Multistrada V4 RS is equipped with a state-of-the-art electronics package that, among its many features, includes front and rear radar technology as standard, which activates the Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Detection functions. It also incorporates Full Power Mode and Race Riding Mode, for maximum power in all gears and a prompt throttle response.
Multistrada aesthetic: form follows function.
On the Multistrada V4 RS, the elegant and dynamic Multistrada aesthetic blends with some of the most characteristic style elements of Ducati supersport bikes. Carbon fiber components such as the front fender, hand guards, heat shield and front “beak” create contrasts with the Iceberg White livery, enhanced with references to the color scheme of the Desmosedici MotoGP. The technopolymer tail section and titanium subframe accentuate the sports attitude of the Multistrada V4 RS. The choice of titanium for the subframe makes for a 2.5 kg weight saving with respect to the standard component.
