Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally First Ride Review
Jul 17, 2023
I can definitely remember a time when I was on the exact same page… maybe a bit deeper. Even cruise control was a bit much IMO. Given most of my riding over the years has been remote adventure travel, anything beyond an ECU felt like problems waiting to happen. Even to the present, my longest single day ride has been on a bone-stock KTM 950 Adventure without so much as a throttle rest (1,257 miles).
I’ve driven plenty of cars with ACC and other bits of similar advanced tech, but incorporation on a bike always seemed sketchy to me… until now. Just returned from a week of exploring and further testing on the V4 Rally, and the ACC system in particular worked so seamlessly it’s hard to imagine how I lived without it previously on these longer adventures. Was among a handful of features that affected the experience in a really good way.
