Ducati's Multistrada V4 S Receives North American Radar Certification

The world’s first bike to boast front and rear radar units is available to the North American market

“Ducati is proud to be the first to deliver radar on a motorcycle," says Jason Chinnock, CEO of Ducati NA.

"Having the benefits of Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Sport Detection at the rider’s fingertips will make cross-country adventures even more enjoyable."

Small, lightweight radar units monitor the interval between yourself and the surrounding traffic both front and rear.

Add some secondary systems, and you suddenly have greater situational awareness.

The front radar unit provides data for your Adaptive Cruise Control

to adjust your speed automatically through controlled acceleration and braking.

The rear radar unit sends data to a Blind Spot Detection feature that monitors rearward traffic

and displays its findings through LED lights set within the mirrors.

"The Multistrada V4 S is the perfect application for radar technology," Chinnock continues,

"as one of the strengths of this motorcycle is to tackle cross-country adventures."
