20 years of Multistrada Exhibition

5 months ago | Words: Matt Holmes | Photos: Ducati Media House

Off the back of the Multistrada V4 S Grand Tour launch, we figured that if you, like us, can’t get enough Multi, and you find yourself in the beautiful surrounds of Borgo Panigale (Bologna, Italy), then you might as well check out the exhibition celebrating the bike that changed the history of Ducati; giving rise to one of the most successful families from the Bologna-based motorcycle manufacturer.

Tech innovations, adventures and emotions are all in the mix at the “Multistrada 20th – Twenty Years of Evolutionary Exploration” exhibition set up inside the Ducati Museum.

Born in 2003 with the aim of offering a Ducati both versatile and sporty, capable of tackling any terrain, at a good clip, with both reliability and safety. The first version of the bike was the Multistrada 1000 DS, the starting point of a family that has continued to evolve through four generations, the most recent based on the V2 and V4 Granturismo engines.

Over its 20-year life, the Multistrada has had a rich history of innovations and technological evolutions that have redefined the standards of the motorcycle industry, from the first Multistrada 1000 DS, which embodies the initial vision and inspiration behind the creation of this family of motorcycles, and on the other hand, the more recent Multistrada V4 Rally, which fully epitomises the path of innovation and evolution that the model has gone through in the past twenty years.

The display includes a short documentary that, through images and testimonies, traces the history and progress that has characterised this incredible model, from its introduction to the most recent versions.

Want the full history lesson and don’t find yourself in the Northern Hemisphere? Don’t sweat, we had a run through the Multi Dynasty recently here:
