The official date of this bike's release was November 2021. This event marked a turning point in the history of the Bologna-based motorcycle manufacturing brand. More importantly, Ducati introduces the fourth generation of Multistrada comprising a new light and compact V4 engine. Furthermore, it has been specifically designed to cater to the rider's ride needs and sporty look. To know more, MWTV presents this blog explaining key facts about the radar technology used in Multistrada V4.   

The story behind the introduction of radar technology on Ducati Multistrada V4: 

By introducing radar technology in the Multistrada V4, brand Ducati intends to fulfill this ambition which they set way back in 2018. This development and finally the adoption of this system promises to deliver a real 'Revolution' in the bike world. The innovation also seeks excellence in comfort and assistance in riding the road up to the next level.  

Ducati Multistrada V4's radar system and its ability to produce reality: 

'Advanced aid system' is a term that best describes the radar technology used in the Ducati Multistrada V4. It possesses the capability of making bike riding a truly joyful activity. Thanks to its unique ability to recreate reality found around near the motorcycle, it is all thanks to its unique ability to recreate reality found around near the motorcycle. It was about five years ago, in 2016, that this Italian bike brand first began to experiment with such a system. Ducati collaborated with the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering an Institution in Milan to develop such a technology. The success of this radar instrument on being tested for the first time proved its practicability, which has encouraged the brand to, within the space of five years, develop the front and rear radar system ready for release along with the Multistrada V4.   

The dimensions and position of the Ducati Multistrada V4's radar system: 

The radar system is compact and measures approximately 70 x 60 x 28 mm. In terms of weight, it weighs only 190 grams and integrates perfectly in the bike. Now, the radar tool positioned in the front end exerts control over the Adaptive Cruise Control or ACC operation, which automatically adjusts the distance using controlled braking and acceleration while riding at a speed ranging between 30 and 160 km/h. 

This ACC system is developed to help the rider maintain constant control over the bike. On the other hand, the radar technology is situated near the Blind Spot Detection or BSD system in the rear end, which signals vehicles approaching from behind at high speed.  

The Pro and Con of having a rear and front radar technology for the Ducati Multistrada V4: 

Adaptive intelligent systems such as the rear and front radar tool in the Ducati Multistrada V4 provide a joyful and comfortable riding experience. Moreover, the rider must constantly be checked and corrected to ensure proper functioning. The availability of a radar system also cannot replace the rider despite such an autonomous radar system. So attention needs to be paid to the individual riding the Ducati Multistrada V4.  


So, with the launching of the Multistrada V4 Ducati, possessing a rear and front radar system, the brand seeks to remind the world that riding safety is important and will continue to remain in the rider's hands. And also reaffirm the fact that the individual who chooses to ride the bike must do it with prudence and responsibility, keeping environmental factors in mind.
