Ducati has already hinted that they'll be putting a V4 in the Multi soon. After riding first the original Multi and later the Diavel with the 1260 DVT motor, I don't quite understand the need for more power, but car/bike enthusiasts have always wanted more power, needed or not. Ducati will make more money (and charge more price) for this model, so they can't wait for it to hit the market.
The V4 configuration is an ideal touring engine IMO, although 200+ HP at 14K rpm is not really required is it? I would hope they tune it for more mid-range and grunt down low... more like what a V-twin would have...Hmmm, so what's the point again...lol
