The Triumph Tiger 900 GT might just be the fan favourite of this segment as it is more street-oriented than the Multi V2.

A week ago, Ducati launched the Multistrada V2 in India at Rs 14.65 lakh for the standard version, and Rs 16.65 lakh for the ‘S’ variant. Now, when we put it alongside its competition –  The BMW F 850 GS (Rs 12.50 lakh) and the Triumph Tiger 900 GT (Rs 13.70 lakh, all prices ex-showroom, India), the V2 is around Rs 2 lakh more expensive than the BMW and Rs 1 lakh dearer than the 900 GT. So how does it stack up with its rivals?

The Triumph Tiger 900 GT might just be the fan favourite of this segment as it is more street-oriented than the Multi V2. In comparison, it has the smallest engine of the 3 and produces the least amount of power and torque. But what works in its favour, is that it’s also the lightest of them at 194kgs. That’s 28kgs lighter than the Multi and 25kgs lighter than the BMW F 900 XR.

At 937cc and with the biggest engine, the Ducati Multistrada V2 churns out the most power at 111bhp, followed by the F 900 XR at 103.1 bhp. However, despite its highest output figures, the Multistrada V2 is not the smoothest of all. Rather, it’s quite clattery at low rpms.
