THE latest teaser for the Ducati Multistrada V4 has been released, giving us all a clue as to the engine’s valve clearance service interval.

The latest theorem is entitled ‘The world is not enough.’, and it seems to be telling us that the valve clearance service interval is 60,000km or 37,000 miles. Accompanying the quote is the statement ‘The earth’s circumference is 40,075 km across… Try 60,000 km.’

Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro video review

The current Multistrada can last for 10,000 miles between oil services and 18,500 miles before it’ll need a Desmo Service. That’s a more thorough check-up that covers the belts, filters, plugs and most importantly it checks over the valve clearances of the Desmodronic valve set up.

The Desmo service is somewhat of a thorn in the side for Ducati owners, becoming so important that buying a used Ducati that’s due one is a red flag for an experienced Ducatisti. The new service interval means the V4 adventure bike from Bologna has nearly double that if the current 1260 V-twin Multistrada.

That’s not bad going considering the new machine has double the number of pistons, a greater number of overall moving parts, and around 20bhp more than before.

To see the new machine in its finished form, all you (and us) have to do is wait a couple more days, the full reveal of the 2021 Ducati Multistrada V4 will be taking place on the 15th of October. Stay tuned!
