รถมันขับเอง! รีวิว Ducati Multistrada V4s 2021 บิ๊กไบค์แห่งอนาคต [Eng Sub]
I currently let it operate by itself 100 km. / hr. You'll have to slow down soon I won't brake either. I swear to god I'm not stepping on the brake It starts to slowdown now Sweet! Let's switch lane No jokes! it is speeding up by itself as well What do you guys think? Look! it is literally riding by itself! So cool! This is no jokes at all and then it slow itself down When the car in front of me switched to the left lane The bike starts to speed up It's amazing I can't believe that I was born in the generation that A bike that costs 1,279,000 baht able to ride by itself Today, I'm gonna talk about the Ducati Multistrada V4s 2021 I've done a video 2 years ago about the Ducati Multistrada 1200s I've said in the past that 1200s was the dead-end for the Multistrada Since Ducati have already put every functions in that bike already I will take everything I've said back Because today we are here with the Ducati Multistrada V4s that is the model that replaced the 1260 and 1200 model and this one has even better functions than the old ones Colored screen and electrical shocks are pretty standard for Ducati at this point But the thing that I want to talk about today is Ducati Multistrada V4s has radars for both the front and the back of the bike and what do they do ? The radars are there to check if there are anything in the front or the back of the bike or not So what? You may ask They help with the calculation of the adaptive cruise control as well We all have heard about what cruise control does and that pretty much every bikes have it It locks the speed but if there is something in the front, the bike won't stop itself But since it has the radars now, the bike will know when there is somthing in the front Imagine the bike is going at 80 km./hr. and there is a car in the front then the bike will slowdown It won't brake like cars because that might mess with the balancing of the rider Ducati says that if the speed is going at 80 If there is a car in the front, the speed will slowdown so that it doesn't crash But if you are going really fast then the story might be different When you try to sway out of the way The accelerator will go at the speed that you turned on cruise control So that's the adaptive cruise control Or if you are not that serious about it The car in front of you is going at 80 km./hr. and you are following it You can adjust the range between you and the car in front of you There are different ranges that you can adjust I will show you how the adaptive cruise control works toward the end of the video This one is considering the first bike that has the radars Some people are probably wondering, what is the front one for? The rear one is right around this area The cool thing about the rear one is It is one of the functions that usually implemented for expensive vehicles and mainly for cars which is the blind spots detector This is one is similar to the one they put in cars The radar will detect if anyone is trying to pass by you The light at the side mirrors will blink The yellow light will blink up and we can see it with the corner of our eyes That are the front and back radars! Let's continue Let me hop on it for you guys I'm 168 cm. tall
Take a look at my foot My foot is touching the ground But let me tell you something The seat is actually adjustable There are two adjustable level which are high and low But right now I have it on low and my foot is touching the ground just fine If you want to adjust the height You have to lift up the seat There are two seats on this bike Take them off then there are slots right here Back in the old models, you need extra accessories to raise the seats However, this one is different If you want the seat to be lowered then you use the bottom slot But if you want it to be higher then the top one is for you Then you just need to lock it without any tool required The other thing I like is that In the old one, you can adjust the height of the front seat But there will be empty space between the two seats Because the back seat is not adjustable Ducati have fixed that issues because the back seat is adjustable as well if you raise the front seat then you can adjust the back one So that it doesn't look weird and ugly It is just another small detail that they've fixed because sometime I just can't find the extra piece But this model doesn't have that problem The seat height is on high It is actually pretty high up My height is 168 cm. tall and now I'm tiptoeing I think it is lower than the Multistrada Enduro The 1260 Enduro was extremely high to the point where I can only stand on one leg But even if I adjusted this seat to high, it still feels fine If you want to be sure then just put it on low then you feet will be touching the ground The engine is the game changer for Ducati because the Multistrada used to have the L-twin double cylinder But this one is using a brand new engine which is the V4 Grand Tourismo Judging by the look of it, some people may think that it is similar to the Panigale engine The answer is no they are not similar This engine is new although it is the V4 engine However, there are some differences and I will talk about them When I start it up I remember how it feels when you start the Ducati up especially with the L-Twin engine I can usually feels the rumble of the bike Although, this one doesn't feel like an electric bike that you can literally feels nothing You will still feels that the engine is running I've done the test ride and the engine felt really smooth Let's continue with the engine The engine has 170 horsepower Well, that is more than enough for touring or dual-purpose bike But the thing that is the game changer here is Well , I've mentioned that it is no longer the L-twin engine But this one is using the V4 engine instead and it now has four cylinders and therefore makes the engine feels smoother The other thing that I never expect Ducati do is that Ducati do not use the Desmodromic Valve in this model We usually see the Desmodromic Valve being used in the models that the valves are bouncing back and forth This has been implemented for every models that Ducati is proud of and has a patent for it as well and can only be used in Ducati bikes But they take out the desmodromic valve from this engine and use the spring valve and retainer instead similar to cars and bikes that we have seen You might wondering which one is better? Well, the desmodromic is more accurate but the benefits of using the spring and retainer valve are First, the engine sound is softer back then we usually here a bunch of clicking noises on the inside when we speed up and it the more you accelerate the louder it gets because they were using the desmodromic valve that is quite loud But when it uses the spring valve, as we can see that the sound is softer However, you can still hear the engine noise a little bit just like regular bikes the other beneficial thing about this kind of valve is The service period is way longer than other bikes Back then we usually hear that the mandatory service is at every 25,000 km. but it also depends on the model and engine as well The service period for some models might be shorter while some might be longer But this engine Ducati says that this model is made to be ride around the world Literally, just ride around the world and bring it back for a service when it hits 60,000 km.
So the mandatory service is at 60,000 km. But you should bring it in for the oil changes every 15,000 km. and 15,000 km. is considering pretty long actually From my personal experience, mandatory service every 60,000 I will say that I've never road any bike passed 60,000 km. This bike is the choice for touring and traveling Let me rev it up for you real quick The V4 engine has a very unique sound to it It sounds great! I don' think we have to say much about the key because it uses the keyless pro that has been used forever Which means that you will only need to carry it with you when you press the button then the key will come out It can be used to open the gas tank for when you need to refill your gas Then you'll need to lift off this thing right here I will just leave the key right here It has a holder here as well You can put your phone right in this slot and charge it there is a USB port in there as well But the sad part is that my iPhone is too large for it So the it won't close It has to be a small phone model than my iPhone to be able to close it up I don't suggest you leave the cover open because your phone might bounce off I mean you can kinda lock it in place since it has rubber parts But it definitely feels safer to ride with the cover shut The monitor is colored but at this point, it is the standard for Ducati But the detail that I like is The monitor is different from the old one but it might be hard to see on camera It is the Matte monitor It is not glossy anymore because it is hard to see in sunlight The other thing is that It is adjustable as well Just in case this angle is reflecting the sunlight Then you'll just need to adjust it with the adjustable knob Just keep turning it until it doesn't reflect the light anymore From my experience, I literally just need to adjust it and everything was fine and you can adjust it while riding the bike as well The other thing that has been changed is the shield It has been improved quite a lot from the old one Back then, you had to squeeze to be able to lift it But now you can just lift it and push it down with ease Some people may think that it might be loose Well, they made a button for it And you will only need one finger to do it but back then you will need to fingers to squeeze it Now you only need one finger! As you can see that it won't go down if I press right here I have to press on the button for it to go down and you can adjust while riding the bike as well I think that they did a great job on the small details I think that it is easier to use and more comfortable Look at the front shield It has a little air socket right here for when you want the wind to go over you but don't want it to get too hot so there is an air flow right there and also, there are two layers of shields as well So that the bike can pierce through the wind Next up, we're gonna take a look at the handle I think this is way better when you compare it to the old one In the old one, you must keep pressing to find it on the screen But not everything have their own dedicated buttons Shock button, Mode button, and Joy-stick Along with the cruise control as well I didn't the old one because sometimes you are riding in one mode by yourselves but when you are riding with a passenger and carry-on You will have to go into various amount of menu on the screen in which we only do it once in a while so we forget where it is It can takes up to 10 minutes to adjust the mode But now you will need to press one button Then you use the joy-stick to change to whatever you want Or you can even put it on the AUTO mode It only takes a couple clicks to access what you want It is a lot easier to use than the older one The Start and Stop buttons are right in this area You can just press the button to turn it off then turn the handle all the way to left and lock it It starts to rain! Next, we're gonna take a look at how to connect our phone to the bike We all have heard about phone connection in past By connecting the phone to the bike and the contact will show up on the screen That is pretty standard because Ducati has it since the 1200s model or even 1260s and now the V4s It has been improved into a better form multiple times But what can the one on the V4s do? You can pull the map up on the screen Quite cool actually! And you can connect it through the Ducati Connect App The cool thing about it is that we can literally control everything on our phone through the bike Or you can just use your phone, depends on your preference When you connected to it, it will pop up on the screen It has a little blue symbol right here It indicates the battery level and you can plug it in too It also indicates the signal level as well and right now I'm on the Ducati connect application I highly suggest anyone who buy it from our store to pair their devices right when they first buy the bike because the first time can be a bit complicated But everything after that are pretty easy to understand So if you don't want to get headache just let us do it for you Because now I can just launch the app and connect to it and now it is connected Now, I can operate anything with the joy-stick on the handle I can play around with Music, Contacts, or make a call Or just press the number in the case that you don't have the contact information You can also launch up the navigator as well However, Thai people are used to Google Map and this application doesn't work with Google Map So you gonna need another application called "Sygic" It is similar to Google Map But it is called "Sygic" And when you launch the app, it will shows up on the screen It also Thai language too! But you can only search with English language You can only type in Thai on your device So just pull the location up on your phone and it will shows on the screen The other thing is that When you launch the app, it will be in a standby mode and the Ducati logo will pop up But if you have a habit of locking your phone then The screen will shut off and the monitor will say "Waiting for phone" Therefore, you must leave the application running But it will be in the standby mode so it doesn't use much battery But if you lock your phone then the screen will be off too However, if you are used to the old navigator You can still attach your device on to the bike still and the bike has a 12V port so that you can charge your device So they actually support both old and new technologies Let me turn the bike off Wait there is another thing that I want to talk about If the bike is at 65-70 degree celsius The bike will switch from V4 to double cylinders instead and only leave the two front cylinders running So that it reduces the temperature of the rear cylinders And also helps with the gas consumption as well Some people might not know when you let the bike running and the cylinders turn themselves off It is normal The bike will turn the rear cylinders off so that they don't burn your legs when you put your bike in N gear But when you rev it up, the cylinders will turn back on Next, we're gonna take a look at the overall design In the old design, the oil cooler was hidden behind here But when I look inside of this, I don't see the oil cooler Instead, I see the bike honk So when you honk at someone, the sound will come from here The oil cooler has been moved to this area instead which is in the front of the front cylinders It is about this big This one can literally suck in all the airflow Back then the airholes are smaller I thought they were too small I think that this one has better airflow from this area while the radiator has been moved to the side instead So it will be radiator then oil cooler then radiator again Right next to each other The radiator is different from the old one The air used to flow inside the bike in which made the bike hotter and you be able to feel the heat with your legs However, if you look closely, the radiators on this one Have been place obliquely so that they have better airflow and also there are some air grilles here as well The air will flow through the sides right away both left and right and the hot air will come out from both sides instead of toward your legs and knees Even the Street Fighter and Panigale models Sometimes you can still feel the heat on your knees a bit due to the frames and the airflow directions So that was why they were hotter Therefore, the design of this one definitely helps with the heat Let's take a look at the wings Since 2020, pretty every models by Ducati come with the wings Both the Street Fighter and the Panigale came with the wings The Multistrada V4s also comes with the wings and they have two layers as well Pretty incredible! They are not only there as cosmetics They also help with the down force for when we go really fast and by really fast I mean 200 km./hr. +
I had a chance to ride the Panigale V4 that had the wings similar to the V4r At first, I though they were for aesthetic but when I tried to ride it on the Chang Circuit I realized that when I went from the first turn to the third I felt that the front of the bike felt more stable Back then we could feel the handle start to rumble when we went over 200 and we need to have the steering damper at maxed because it felt like the bike was being lifted with the models that didn't come with the wings But when it has the wings the wind helps balance the front of the bike and push it down and makes the handle more stable and still Therefore, the wings are they for both aesthetic and helps with the balance Let's take a look a the back We don't get to see this kind of frame lately from Ducati because they have switched to aluminum frame But this one has a similar design to the old ones This is the soft-frame which is where we sit both the rider and the passenger This is a red braided steel Cool looking and stands out It has that unique braided characteristic kind of a throwback Next, we're gonna take a look at the suspension system Like I said, the V4s gets the Skyhook shock Most of the S models have the Skyhook suspension Since the old model and this new one the electric shocks from Skyhook are extremely smart Well, I was happy even with the old model But I love this one even more because you can adjust anything through the joy-stick Let's take a look a the braking system It has been upgraded Take a look at the front caliper This is the same Brembo that was in the Panigale V4 and also in the Street Fighter V4 as well It was the one that replaced Brembo M50 I just want to say that the feel of this brake is extremely nice Like I've mentioned about my experience on the Chang Circuit I was going 200+ and then pressed the brake and slowdown to about 100+ The brake was very smooth and stable It doesn't feel too sudden when you brake but when you brake it feels smooth and steady for this caliper, I really love it It is the best braking system Let's take look at the rear wheel Many old fans might be wondering, in the old L-twin we used to get the Single-sided swing arm It looked cooler So why did they put the double-sided swing arm for this one? I think that is because this type of bike is made for traveling The main purpose of it is to be able to ride around the world Well, of course the single-sided swing arm is easier to get services In the case that you already have all the tools required If you have the tools to remove screws and stuffs, everything are easier But imagine you are traveling to other part of the world or country that may not have Ducati Dealership or people from that country might not even know what Ducati is So how are they going to take the single-sided swing arm off? If the air from the tire leak or broken what are we going to do? But when it uses double-sided swing arm like this The screws and everything are more universal You can take it off in pretty much any country that you go to Well, the tools might still be unusual but they are completely specialized like the ones for single-sided So they really think everything through before they put their products out Take a look at the rear brake! It is from Brembo as well This one has two ports We usually see rear brake from Brembo that has only one big port However, this one comes with two ports The feels of the rear brake is this one is not bad at all It wasn't make to be a racing bike If it is a racing bike then it might need a larger single port to the point where it stop instantly when you press the brake But this one has the smoothness that makes you feel more confident riding it The other thing I want to say is that this one . . . The IMU has been around since the old model The IMU is the sensor that measure the angle and degree of the bike It uses to calculate the brake for when we take a huge turn and you press the brake all of the sudden and it activates the ABS It makes the ABS works smoother and you will not lose the control of the bike I think that Ducati is extremely generous with the amount and quality of accessories and features The brakes have to be from Brembo Along with the braking system, IMU box, and etc. Definitely one of the top brand in the world and if we take a look up here This thing right here is the slot for the luggage and the case from the dealership So if you buy the luggage from the dealership, you can put it on right away without any extra attachments This is similar to the old model where you can just put the luggage on right away where you can put all your clothes and other things in there Then you can just bring the luggage with you and go check-in to a hotel or tent So it is pretty convenient because you don't have to remove a single screw Well, the box is also cool but it is different but with the box, you will have to screw it in and out which is pretty annoying But this one is more convenient and easier to deal with The gas tank capacity is 22 liters It is pretty standard and it is too large or too small Other bikes capacities are about 10+ liters but this one is 22 liters so it is a decent size The weight of the bike is Well, I don't think we have to say much about the weight of the Ducati these days I personally want the weight to be heavier because if are on a long trip, the faster you go, the smoother the bike will feel But I'm saying that about the weight of the Ducati because Since 2010 models until now They all have great balancing I thought that the L-twin had a low center of gravity already but the V4 feels even lower than that Imagine if the engine only goes up to right here so the bike is lower So when you ride the bike, even though the bike is pretty large The bike weight excluding the fluids is 215 kg.
Well, it is quite heavy but when you ride it, it doesn't feel as heavy as it sounds It doesn't matter how heavy the bikes are as long as you know the balance I've lifted up the stand already I can literally use my thumb and and my index finger to hold the bike The bike is holding itself up because if we know the weight and the balance of the bike the weight doesn't really matter similar to when we ride it Like I said, you only need one foot touching the ground and you are fine You don't really to use much force to hold it at all Let's look over from this side It is similar to the other side just without the exhaustion pipe Let us take a look at the gearing paddle It is a touring bike but it comes with the quick-shifter both up and down as well Similar to a sport bike The tank cap for both this side and that side They all have plastic cover on top of them I think that they did a great job with the detailing of this bike I believe that Ducati have fixed most the flaws from the old model in this one See this aluminum frame, it is quite hot when I touch it I think they worry that people will ride with their shorts on because you won't feel a thing if you are wearing jeans but they put a plastic frame right here So that the riders don't feel the heat from the bike when they touch this area But if you touch this area, it still gonna burn you The tank cap right here also comes with the plastic cover as well Overall, well the rear shock is the one with the electrical sub-tank It has been placed like a sport bike Okay, I've covered pretty all the generic information Let's check out the test ride, shall we? The first thing that I want to try out is the We're going on a bridge and there is no car behind us Let me try the brake The H letter popped up on the screen "Hold Brake" which is the hand brake and I'm touching the brake down there The bike is not rolling backward either and when we start to accelerate, the bike will stop braking It is the automatic brake for when the bike is on a steep hill so that the bike doesn't roll down the hill So fast! Let me try the ABS The brake is super soft and smooth! This bike has been designed so that you can stand on it while riding it It is cool but also some people just need some fresh air However, the main purpose of standing up is since the bike is dual-purpose and also touring In the case that you are going off-roading You can use your knees to absorb the bounce along with shocks It is super easy to turn There is one thing I've talked about this model in the last video that there is a change when you compare it to the old one which is the suspension system and the wheels are different from the older generation Well, in the 1260 and the 1200s models or even the regular model both front and rear wheels were 17" However, the front wheel of this bike is 19" and the rear one is 17" It is similar to the old Enduro that the front wheel is larger than the rear one The front wheel was 120/70 19" while the rear one was 170/60 17" If you are following this channel you will know I personally don't like the front wheel to be larger than the rear one which is pretty normal for a touring bike It is not that it is bad or anything but I'm personally not used to it I just want to say that I'm riding the V4s right now and if I didn't know that the front wheel is larger than the rear I won't notice it at all because it still feels like they are both 17" in sizes Weird but it is the truth Let's check out the adaptive cruise control See! the blind spot is signaling that there is a car passing us on the right On our left is a bike coming up See! Both left and right blind spot indicators blinked at the same times because there were cars on both my left and my right Let me try the adaptive cruise control Now I'm going at 71 km./hr. (warning: please keep hold the handle all the time when riding.) Now it is locked at 72 km./hr.
It slowdown to 67 and now 66 because the car in the front is going slower that what we were going Right now, both of my hands are off the handle Let's try to switch to the right lane I was the one switching the lane not the bike by the way It is now locked at 71 km./hr. then 72 Let's see if any car will switch the lane There is nobody I currently lock it at 71 km./hr. Let's switch over the middle lane Some people may wonder how did I switch lane without my hand I use the wheel to turn. The bike wasn't turning itself Now, the car in the front is going slower and now the bike is going slower around 60+ because the bike is tracking the Nisson March in from us As of now, I have the speed lock at 72 but the car in front of me is probably going around 60 km. Therefore, the sensor actually has some good range to it because I have the range on "VERY FAR" If you want to be closer then you can do that to but I just want to be safe Now, the Mustang switched to the left lane and the bike is following the Camry instead The bike is now going at around 65 km./hr. just like the car in the front
It is quite cool! I'm riding the bike by the way. It is literally riding itself I will let it rides now it starts to speed up by itself because the Camry went out of the way It suddenly sped up to 70 because the Fieza is in front of us So sick! It starts to slowdown since the car in the front is going slower Let's switch to the right lane No kidding! Now we're going 70 km./hr. 70 km./hr. 72 km./hr. I'm not even touching the handle at all However, I don't suggest anyone to do the same but I'm doing it to show your the efficiency of the function The bike feels smooth with it goes up and down the bridge No swaying but I'm also going at 70 km./hr. Let me increase the speed a little bit I've increased it to 77 km./hr.
and now the bike is going at around 75+ km./hr. 77 km./hr. It is so cool! Right now, it is like the car in front of us is going way faster than us so our speed is locked at 77 km./hr.
Therefore, our speed doesn't change much I think it is super cool because back then I didn't have the gut to use the cruise control I was worried then people will cut in front of me and the bike wouldn't brake for me But this one is . . . . Look! It just keeps going and the taxi is about to get in front of us Let's see if the bike will brake for me It braked and started to slowdown Well, it did not really brake but stopped the acceleration rather Now the speed is dropping to around 40 km./hr. It's warning ... because the speed is too slow and when the taxi gets out of our way then the bike starts to speed up again No jokes! It is so sick! We have to hold the brake then turn it back to normal Let's go! Quite fast! It is fast but it's also smooth This is the SPORT mode as well The engine is extremely smooth The V4 engine in the Panigale and the Street Fighteror even this one they are super smooth When I start to accelerate, I can feel the whiplash This is the SPORT mode but if you don't want it to be too fast then you can adjust it with your left hand with the mode button and switch it to the TOURING mode The acceleration is a lot smoother When it is in SPORT mode, it really lives up to the mode since this is a Ducati If you don't want it to be too fast then you can adjust it as well So cool! Let me see if the cruise control will work on bike I will slowdown a bit Right now, I'm following the GRAB driver in front of us The bike knows Quite cool! It is the radar and it is working as intended I've tried this radar in a car before and it is extremely smart We usually see it in cars but I didn't know it can be in bikes as well Well, like I said It is not gonna brake for us because the moment that the bike brake, we might get scared and lose balance Imagine you are riding and all of the sudden, the bike brakes The suspension system is great! smooth and soft and when I adjusted it to the TOURING mode I can feel that the accelerator feels a lot smoother than before and that is because the SPORT mode was too fast and powerful But when it is in TOURING mode, I think it is awesome for traveling I'm not suggesting anyone doing what I'm about to do I just want to try the function and test it out for you guys I was literally holding my breath trying I already know that it can keeps following the car in the front But I tried to not use the brake at all I swear I didn't even touch it My hands were off the handle and I didn't use the footbrake I want to know what wound happened if we were going fast and a car cut in front of us Would the bike only stop the acceleration or brake and the answer was no, it actually has the engine brake control I was on the 5th gear just now The bike doesn't know how to shift gear by itself yet But when I thought that I was going to hit the car in the front All of the sudden, the engine brake started to do something It almost like it was shifting the gear for me but it didn't Instead, it was just the engine brake control That it stopped the bike from crashing But anyway It only going to slow it down for you but that is already quite smart It's different from what I've said I thought that it was only t racking the vehicle in the front and slowdown But no! When we're really close to the other vehicle The engine brake control starts to slow the bike down It is extremely cool! I didn't expect this at all! I'm literally getting a goosebumps The other thing is that I thought I supposed to be on N so that the bike will turn off the cylinders But when I was rolling in here I was holding the clutch and shifted to first gear I knew right away that the back cylinders were off and when I started to accelerate, the cylinders turned back on Ducati bikes nowadays are super smart! The other detail that I have found a very good detail See! right now I have the stand on the ground In other bike models, if you have the stand down like this and you are in the first gear The bike will turn itself off but Ducati meant for it to be like this by putting the stand right there So that you can't shift the gear when the stand is down See! I can't even stomp it down They did a great job with all these details You have to have the stand lifted to shift to the first gear I forgot to shift to the N gear I didn't think that the blind spots function was important in cars But a lot of people including me That has a chance to ride vehicles with blind spots indicators and since then I was spoiled because instead of looking at the mirror I looked with the corner of my eyes at the indicators instead because otherwise if there is a car, I will stay in my lane I think that the blind spots function is pretty cool! The indicators are really stand out The heat that I've experienced during the test ride I felt the heat when I was slowing down right around this area But if you are going over 80 - 100 km./hr. then you won't really feel any heat because the air will blow the heat out since the exhaustion is right here It can be a little hot but wearing jeans do help I personally don't suggest anyone wearing shorts Even if it is ice cold, I still don't suggest anyone wear shorts and ride big bike Wait, that's cool The air flow starts to work It is blowing out air in this area both left and right side not toward your legs Absolutely love it! If I'm not recording a video I will hop on the passenger seat Okay! that's about it for today Shoutout to Ducati Thailand for letting me try the Ducati Multistrada V4s which is considering one of the newest bike innovations Because I haven't seen any other bikes that have the same functions That's it for today! I will see you in the next video!
