EICMA 2016 : New Ducati Multistrada 950 is aimed to be accessible and versatile


Ducati has extended its Multistrada portfolio with the addition of the new, relatively lower displacement model, the Multistrada 950. The new Multistrada 950 is the Bologna-based bike manufacturer’s smallest “multibike”, which is designed to provide all the excitement of the Multistrada in a more accessible and versatile way. 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. The Multistrada 950 is built around Tubular steel Trellis frame. The motorcycle weighs 229 kg wet.

The Multistrada 950 is powered by Ducati’s existing 937 cc liquid cooling Testastretta 11° twin-cylinder engine which is now EURO IV emission compliant. The 94 x 67.5 mm bore and stroke produce 113 hp of power at 9,000 rpm and a 96.2 Nm of torque at 7,750 rpm. The Multistrada 950 has four Riding Modes (Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro), each programmed to act on the electronic Ride-by-Wire (RbW) engine control system and the ABS and DTC levels.

The Multistrada 950 instrument panel consists of a LCD display which provides the rider with primary and secondary information. The unit gives info on speed, rpm, total distance ridden, selected gear, trip 1 and trip 2, engine coolant temperature, fuel level and, of course, a clock. The display also shows the selected Riding Mode, miles remaining, real-time fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, average speed, air temperature, travel time and road ice warning.


Safety package includes DSP (Ducati Safety Pack), Bosch ABS System and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC). Check out the complete technical specifications of the new Ducati Multistrada 950 below.
