Ducati unveiled a new engine with variable valve timing system intake and exhaust. This engine, the Testastretta DTV (Desmodromic Variable Timing) is the core version of the Multistrada 2015, and is characterized by a hydraulic mechanism, controlled by the control unit, which allows you to advance or retard the rotation of the four camshafts desmodromic distribution, varying the ‘crossing angle between the valves, and consequently the character of the motor. This solution allows to have a strong impulse to the high, medium and full to the more linear at low. The result is 160 hp at 9,500 r / min and 136 Nm at 7,500 rpm / min, when the “old” Testastretta engine developed 150 hp at 9,250 rev / min and 124.5 Nm at 7,500 rpm / min. Despite the increase in power, there are also improvements on the consumer side (- 8%) and emissions (in line with the Euro 4). The new engine developed by Ducati also promises large maintenance periods, ranging from 15,000 km (or one year) for routine maintenance to 30,000 km for the recording of the valves.
NEW FRAME ELECTRONIC SUPERBIKE
The unique twin DTV is housed in a new chassis, redesigned both the lattice of steel tubes is in the middle / rear (in die-cast aluminum with integrated holders for the case), but did not change significantly the odds of life. Ducati wanted to raise the engine (+ 20 mm) to improve the light to the ground and, at the same time, lower the saddle, which becomes adjustable to two positions (825 or 845 mm). These two operations are required to reposition the tank (always 20 liters), which “stretches” laterally almost to the fairing.
The braking system is characterized by a pair of 320mm front discs, bites by two Brembo monobloc radial calipers (the S version is equipped with the M50 and takes discs 330 mm).
The Multistrada continues to be the flag technological Ducati also with the version 2015 and in fact the news from the point of view of the electronics are many, especially as regards the version S. In addition to the already-riding mode (Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro), the enduro of the Bologna now also fits:
Cornering ABS: that the ABS that works even when cornering according to the angle of the fold; optimizes the braking power of the front wheel and the rear even in critical situations.

TECHNOLOGY AND CONVENIENCE
All information of the electronic systems are provided by the dashboard: the standard version is equipped with an LCD display while the S is equipped with a screen full color 5 “TFT. Under static conditions can be accessed through the block on the left handle bar to a menu “setting” for the activation and regulation of various functions, including DTC and DWC custom three levels of intervention of the ABS Cornering.
Among the many new technologies, there is also the Switching Hands Free: the Multistrada is set in motion by an electronic key, which can also be held comfortably in your pocket while driving.
