Ducati launched the Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak in India with a price tag of Rs 31.84 lakh (ex-showroom) a year after its global unveiling. The Pikes Peak model is a more road-focused version of the Multistrada V4 with smaller wheels, better suspension and reduced weight.
The Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak is powered by a 1158cc, V4 Granturismo engine that puts out 168 bhp and 12.7 kgm of peak torque. Regarding the riding ergonomics, the foot pegs are now higher and moved back to increase the maximum lean angle, while the handlebar is lower, narrower and has contained curved bars.

Weighing in at 214 kg, this sports tourer is lighter than the standard V4 S by 4.4 kg.
The Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak additionally comes loaded with tech. This includes electronically adjustable suspension, riding modes, power modes and ABS Cornering. It also gets Ducati Traction Control, Ducati Wheelie Control, Ducati Cornering Light, Vehicle Hold Control, Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Detection.
