Spotted: Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Is On Its Way
18 May 2021 - RideApart
Just around the bend.
The 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 is already making its presence felt within the Bologna brand's range despite its recent introduction. Ducatisti have gladly jumped aboard the new Multi, and the Heavyweight ADV even led Ducati's 33-percent sales increase in Q1 2021.
After riding the all-new adventure bike, we emphatically agreed with eager Multistrada fans who are delighted by the model's newfound off-road chops. While the standard and 'S' trim focus on touring capability, Ducati historically follows up with a sporty Pikes Peak edition. Named after the famous Colorado road race, the Pikes Peak variant celebrates Carlin Dunne's dominance on the mountain between 2012 and 2018.
EPA documents already revealed Ducati's hand in February, 2021, and we now have visual evidence that the Multistrada V4 Pike's Peak is on its way. Spotted at a European track, the special-edition Multi sports its signature forged aluminum 17-inch wheels. Judging by the gold USD fork legs and yellow shock coil, it's safe to assume that the 2021 Pikes Peak will also boast full Ohlins suspension.
