YOUR PERSONAL INVITATION

Moments of happiness are like cooking: they are always tastier when shared. With Greta, we have had the chance to rediscover our country during memorable road trips over the last summers, and we’ve been so fascinated that we absolutely had to share this emotion with a small group of enthusiasts. Enthusiasts about motorcycles, adventure, and…gastronomy of course!
Benvenuti a tutti!

The new

Ducati

Multistrada V4

The fourth generation Multistrada is more versatile and easier to ride than ever. Sport, Travel, Enduro and Urban: four perfectly balanced facets. 

Ready for long journeys, thanks to the GPS integrated into the dashboard and the innovative radar system, it offers excellent riding comfort. 

Light and compact, with the 170 HP of the new V4 Granturismo. 

Comfortable in everyday use thanks to its adjustable seat, and hyper-connected thanks to the projection of your smartphone screen on the dashboard. 

Aerodynamics are at the heart of the new Multistrada V4 design, to increase stability and ensure thermal and aerodynamic comfort in all conditions of use.

Easy to live with: the first valve lash adjustment (major service) interval is only required after 60,000 km.
