2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike

Your Everyday Wonder

The new 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike is the pinnacle of adventure touring, with the adaptability to be used in the city and daily and the unmistakable sportiness and flare of every Ducati.

The latest addition to the Ducati family of dual-purpose motorcycles is a twin-cylinder model that improves on all fronts: it’s easier to use, more comfortable, and more fun to ride. The latest iteration of the 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine powers the extremely advanced motorcycle known as the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike. It’s the best way to ease into the world of Ducati touring bikes.

The primary areas of focus throughout the creation of this bike were the ergonomics, the reduction of weight, the adjustments to the engine, and a variety of “continuous improvement” inspired upgrades.


Those solid and sleek lines are instantly recognizable as a Multistrada trademark. For a more modern and sporty look, the bike’s name is now featured on both sides in elegant new graphics.


The responsiveness and intuition afforded by a 19-inch front wheel allow maximum versatility, resulting in a relaxing ride capable of pinpointing accuracy when called for.


The electrical system, especially in the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike, is rather extensive. Because they are practical and discreet, today’s driver assistance technologies make any trip relaxing and risk-free.


The inseam arch and seat height have been lowered from 32.6 inches to 31.1 inches to provide easier access.


The 937cc Testastretta 11-degree engine has been lightened, and the gearbox and clutch have been changed to give smoother and more accurate operation. Those with an A2 license can also get a 35 kW model.

With an inseam arch of just 70.5 inches, the seat has been redesigned to be smaller and more compact between the rider’s legs, making it calmer to put both feet flat on the ground and reduced from 35.7 to 32.7 inches in height.

These modifications improve the rider’s safety while the bike is stopped and at low speeds when transporting passengers and their luggage. In addition, a soft seat and lowered suspension package will be available in the Ducati Performance catalog in 2022-23, allowing riders as little as 31 inches in height to ride comfortably.

The distance from the seat to the footrest has also been increased, now measuring 19.3 inches, making the ride more comfortable for taller riders over longer distances.

Weight Reduction

After applying all the weight-saving measures, the bike weighed in at a dry weight of 438 pounds, 11 pounds lighter than the Multistrada 950 (or 445 for the S model). The engine has a weight reduction of 4.4 lbs.

The front brake disc flanges are now aluminum (-1.1 lb), the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike mirrors are lighter (-3.7 lb), and the revised wheels are more lightweight (-3.7 lb). As of the start of 2022, a new accessory for the wheel rims is available: spoked rims that are substantially lighter. The lighter wheel rims will significantly improve the vehicle’s handling.


The front trellis frame, the two cast side frames, and the rear load-bearing element are all techno-polymer filled with glass fiber for optimum torsional stiffness. This design was chosen for the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike’s chassis. A shell-cast aluminum twin swing arm finishes off the chassis.

Suspensions and brakes

The 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike comes standard with an upside-down front fork that has a 1.9-inch diameter and 6.7-inch travel, as well as specially cast end caps, an adjustable spring preload, and hydraulic brakes for rebound and compression.

The bike rides more comfortably even when fully loaded because of the progressive nature of the spring. There are 6.7 inches of travel for the back wheels. The 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike comes standard with the semi-active Ducati Skyhook Suspension EVO suspension system.

The electronic 48 mm SACHS fork and rear shock absorber make up this suspension system, which can continuously adjust the hydraulic brake in compression and extension according to a semi-active control approach to guarantee the vehicle’s ideal setup while boosting safety and comfort.

Brembo brakes with ABS Cornering capabilities are included on 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike. Brembo M4-32 Monobloc radial calipers, including four 32 mm diameter pistons and two pads, are used in the front system, which has a double 12.6 inches front disc with aluminum flanges. The rear brakes consist of a single 10.4-inch disc and a Brembo caliper that may move freely.

Power and torque are always under control

The 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike is powered by the last generation of Ducati’s 937 ccs Testastretta 11° twin-cylinder with desmodromic distribution, which generates 113 horsepower at 9.000 rpm.

The engine has been lightened, and the gearbox and clutch have been reworked to improve shifting smoothness and accuracy and simplify neutral engagement. With service intervals of 9,300 miles for oil changes and 18,600 miles for valve clearance checks, the Testastretta 11° is dependable and powerful.

Clutch and gear shifter

A redesigned 8-disc hydraulic clutch in the transmission facilitates neutral-gear starts and allows for more precise gear changes. The quick shifter’s popularity has grown noticeably due to its enhanced operating style.

Uncompromising electronics and control

The 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike has state-of-the-art technological aid technologies further to guarantee its performance, comfort, and safety. A comprehensive optional benchmark package for the sector the trip is in elevates it to a 5-star rating in the S version.

The engine’s software, the Skyhook suspension (on the S model), and the rider may be customized using the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike’s four riding modes (Sport, Touring, Urban, and Enduro). The bike’s unique character may be tailored entirely in this way.

Bosch’s 6-axis inertial platform IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) enables the ABS’s adjustable Cornering action dependent on the bend angle.

The 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike’s dashboard has a vast, high-visibility LCD. In contrast, the S variant features a high-resolution five ′′ color TFT screen and a user-friendly interface that makes navigating the menu a breeze. Both versions work seamlessly with the Ducati Media Center.

The front headlight of the Multistrada V2 is aggressively designed, as is typical of the Multistrada series of motorcycles. The Multistrada V4’s LED taillight employs the Ducati Brake Light system. This device improves the motorcycle’s safety by flashing the rear light whenever the rider applies rapid brakes, giving adequate warning to oncoming traffic.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC) has eight settings on the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V2 S Adventure Bike, while the ABS Cornering system has three settings, the lowest of which provides “only front” (non-cornering) functionality. It kicks in when the rider applies intense pressure to the front brake lever or the rear brake pedal when the side stand is retracted, and the motorcycle remains still, preventing movement.
