2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Adventure Bike Review Specs

With a specific riding position, 17-inch wheels with sports tires, a single-sided swing arm, Ohlins suspension, and the new Race Riding Mode, the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Adventure Bike was created to take the sporting characteristics of the Multistrada V4 S to the limit.

The Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak is the most potent crossover model ever and the sportiest Multistrada of all time. Its V4 Granturismo engine, which can produce 170 horsepower at 10,500 revolutions per minute and provide excellent performance in fast riding owing to innovative computerized management techniques, is thrilling and adrenaline-inducing.

2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Adventure Bike – Features

Sharp and Responsive

The new Multistrada Pikes Peak allows the rider to express the racing nature of the 170 HP V4 Granturismo to its fullest extent thanks to the harmonious coexistence of the chassis, ergonomic, electrical, and high-level componentry.

17″ Front Wheel, including Forged Rims and Dedicated Ergonomics.

Absolute accuracy between turns and a fast speed while approaching the apex are the consequences of the 17-inch front wheel, and the use of lighter Marchesini aluminum forged rims. To provide the rider with a more athletic sensation and to support dynamic riding on asphalt, the key proportions and ergonomic components like the foot pegs and handlebar have been altered as well.

Single-Sided Swing Arm and “Pikes Peak” livery

The practical components of the new Multistrada generation accentuate the artistic characteristics of the Pikes Peak edition, such as the 17′′ front wheel and the single-sided swing arm. Thanks to the new livery, including number plates on both sides stimulated by the graphics of the Desmosedici GP ’21, the appearance achieves the height of sportiness. The “V4” emblem is visible above the two-tone passenger seat.

Ohlin’s Smart EC 2.0 Suspension

The first Multistrada to ever use electrical Smart EC 2.0 Ohlins suspension is the V4 Pikes Peak. The Panigale V4 S and Streetfighter V4 S have the Smart EC 2.0 technology. This sophisticated technology enables “event-based” adjustments following the rider’s riding style. For the first time, Riding Mode Race, which operates on electronic controls to fully express the bike’s racing potential, is paired with this technology adapted from Ducati supersport motorcycles.

170 hp of Pure Adrenaline. V4 Granturismo

It is tiny and weighs just 147 lb., 2.6 lb. less than the twin-cylinder Ducati Pikes Peak 1260. The V4 Granturismo engine’s 1.158 cc capacity offers segment-leading power and torque levels and complete dependability, with valve clearance control set to a record 37,000 miles.

17” Marchesini forged aluminum rims

The wheels’ rims are composed of forged aluminum, which allows for significant weight savings on unsprung masses, ensures a great deal of execution speed, and enhances the dynamic behavior of the bike. Compared to Multistrada V4/Multistrada V4 S cast rims, the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Adventure Bike forged wheels weigh 5.9 lb. less, which helps the whole vehicle weigh around 8.8 lb. less.

Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV Tires

The 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Adventure Bike is sporty, and the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV Tyres (120/70-17 front, 190/55-17 rear) reinforce this. They also attest to the car’s performance-first nature.

Chassis dimensions

The 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Adventure Bike has a rake of 25.75° (+ 1.25° compared to Multistrada V4). Wheelbase geometry is now 0.0627 inches (+0.0011 inches compared. to Multistrada V4), and the trail is now 4.7 inches. The Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak now has the riding qualities of aggressive motorcycles thanks to these improved numbers, without sacrificing comfort in any circumstance.

Class-leading braking system

The new 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Adventure Bike’s braking system is at the sector’s top and is directly derived from the Panigale V4. The design incorporates Brembo Stylema Monobloc calipers similar to those seen on the Multistrada V4 S, and 13-inch diameter discs up front, to which the Panigale V4’s pads have been added. The system has a 10.4-inch disc with a Brembo floating caliper at the back.

Performance-oriented Electronics

Supersport riding served as the inspiration for the new electronics. One is Riding Mode Race, which may influence the key electrical systems and provide the best performance. The 6.5-inch TFT dashboard including optical bonding technology and illuminated handlebar controls with a joystick, make it simple to use in daylight and at night.

The Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak also carries over the complex and cutting-edge electronics package from the Multistrada V4 S, which features, among other things, front and rear radar technology that enables Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and new Blind Spot Detection (BSD).

Cornering ABS

The Bosch 10.3ME Cornering ABS featuring corners function is used by the Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak to improve the bike’s athletic attributes.

A vital component of the Ducati Safety Pack, each of which can be adjusted on three different levels and is coupled as standard with the various Riding Modes. The Multistrada Pikes Peak uses a combined braking system (Electronic Combined Braking System) tuned at level 3 for the Urban and Touring RM, thanks to its ABS control processor.

Level 2 is the setting for the ABS in Sport and Race modes. By selecting level 1 from the menu, the ABS function (non-cornering) is only active on the front axle and disengaged on the rear wheel, enabling the rear to drift under braking in faster driving. It raises the degree of sportiness even more for the rider. While an all-new Multistrada V4/V4S ABS level 1 is intended for off-road use, the V4 Pikes Peak ABS level 1 primarily focuses on road or racing performance.

Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC)

To be even more precise, during impulsive man oeuvres typical of sporty riding, Ducati Wheelie Control has been created and calibrated to the athletic characteristics of the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Adventure Bike. This system has eight adjusting levels and integrates seamlessly with the Ducati Riding Modes. It examines the bike’s attitude, checks for any front wheel lift, and adjusts torque and power to maximize acceleration while maintaining safety.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)

A crucial component of the Ducati Safety Pack, the DTC system that comes standard on the new 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Adventure Bike incorporates data from the IMU platform to limit grip losses and lean angle effectively. DTC can detect and reduce rear wheel spin in only a few thousand seconds using sensor data, greatly enhancing performance and active safety. The system offers eight distinct levels for the user to choose from. Every single one of them has been configured to provide a rear-wheel spin tolerance that corresponds to progressively higher riding skill levels (rated from 1 to 8).

Vehicle Hold Control

Because the newest Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) technology adjusts brake pressure during starts, freeing the user to concentrate on the throttle and clutch control, riders have simpler restarts, even in dangerous circumstances such as on a hill.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Front radar, which is seamlessly integrated into the Multistrada Pikes Peak, manages the operation of the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), which travels when traveling at a speed between 18.5mph and 99mph and uses controlled braking and acceleration to automatically adjust the distance (selectable on four individual levels) from other motorcycles. This technology, inspired by cars, has been improved and tailored to the ergonomics and dynamics of two-wheeled vehicles.

To guarantee that the rider can always control the vehicle, the system’s authority to accelerate and decelerate has been precisely controlled. The specialized buttons on the left block may be used to insert and modify the ACC. The rider may shift up or down without the ACC turning off during the acceleration and deceleration periods thanks to the DQS up & down. The ACC system makes driving more pleasant, particularly on lengthy highway trips.

Blind Spot Detection

The so-called blind spot, or the region invisible to the rider directly or via the rearview mirror, may be detected and reported using back radar technology, which is situated beneath the headlight. The LEDs on the rearview mirrors are used by the BSD (Blind Spot Detection) system to monitor this condition.

The BSD system also warns of fast-moving cars coming up from behind. In either scenario, the BSD flashes the LED to indicate a potentially hazardous situation if the user engages the direction indication to indicate the desire to change lanes. The system’s brightness may be adjusted on three different levels by the user thanks to the specialized menu.

Hands-Free ignition

The Hands-Free starting mechanism used by the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Adventure Bike ensures the highest levels of safety. With the help of this technology, the rider may conveniently begin the engine while keeping the key in his pocket by pressing the special button located just behind the steering column.

Headlight and indicators

Full LED lighting and a front headlamp with DRL and Cornering Lights are standard on the 2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Adventure Bike. The rear light incorporates the Ducati Brake Light feature, which, in the case of unexpected braking, immediately activates the light flashing to indicate the situation of unexpected slowing in a suitable manner. Due to the auto shut-off mechanism, the direction indicators, which are likewise LED, switch off automatically after usage.
