Ducatisti who bemoaned that the Multistrada V4 would come with a 19″ front wheel and a double-sided swingarm should be happy about today’s news, since a 17″ version of the ADV bike has been spotted, with a single-sided swingarm to boot.
Spotted by our friends at Moto.it, the model is being tipped for a 2022 debut, and could be the rumored “Pikes Peak” bike that has come out in US government documents.
How the model would slot into Ducati’s adventure lineup would be interesting, and presumably it would be Ducati’s sportier option.
The spy photo seems to show confirm that notion, with Öhlins suspension and forged aluminum wheels from Marchesini visible in the photo.
The question now though is whether Ducati buyers would take the 19″ model that’s out now, or wait until this time next year for the 17″ front wheel model to arrive. The great ADV debate continues.
