Ducati has added a new 937cc Multistrada to its ‘multibike’ range. The new bike features a Testastretta engine, which delivers 113bhp at 9,000rpm and a maximum torque of 96.2Nm at 7,750rpm.
The Multistrada 950 sports a 19-inch front wheel, seat height of 840mm and a 20-litre tank. The bike also has all the looks of the bigger bikes in the range.
Here’s a slideshow of the official photos:
This is what Ducati says about it:
Ducati Multistrada 950
Ducati presents the new Multistrada 950, the Bologna-based bike manufacturer’s smallest “multibike”, designed to provide all the excitement of the Multistrada in a way that makes it more accessible and versatile. Designed to put great performance within everyone’s grasp, the Multistrada 950 is for those who want to get in some touring (and perhaps enjoy the company of a passenger) and those who want an agile fun bike that’s ideal for everyday use.
Combining the Multistrada family’s trademark design and chassis geometry, the Multistrada 950 has it all. Lighter than the Multistrada 1200 and with a seat height of 840 mm, the Multistrada 950 sharpens the excellent dynamic performance of its “big sisters”. The 19″ light alloy front wheel ensures comfort and fun on any road surface, asphalted or not. Suspension with a generous 170 mm of travel and a twin-sided swingarm keep comfort levels high while giving the Multistrada 950 outstanding agility. Moreover, the 20-litre tank puts plenty of miles between refuelling stops.
The 937 cm3 Testastretta engine gives the Multistrada 950 true Ducati verve – and makes it accessible to everyone. This engine delivers 113 hp (83.1 kW) at 9,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 9.8 kgm (96.2 Nm) at 7,750 rpm. The four Riding Modes (Touring, Sport, Urban and Enduro) give the Multistrada 950 true 4-bikes-in-1 capability.
Maintenance is as worry-free as it gets: the 937 cm3 Ducati Testastretta 11° twin cylinder engine has a maintenance interval of 15,000 km (9,000 miles) or 12 months, with valve clearance inspection every 30,000 km (18,000 miles).
The Multistrada 950 is both confidence-inspiring and safe thanks to the Ducati Safety Pack, which includes the latest Bosch 9.1 MP ABS with 3-level adjustment and 8-level Ducati Traction Control. These safety systems apply different intervention levels depending on the selected Riding Mode; riders can personalise them to set up the Multistrada 950 to match their individual needs and riding skills.
