Small Multi may have to wait for a makeover

MCN - - This Week In MCN -

The CARB doc­u­ments make no men­tion of the Mul­tistrada 950, the new baby Multi that only went on sale ear­lier this year. The 950 uses the 937cc Tes­tas­tretta en­gine from the Hyper­mo­tard, and that doesn’t look set to change any­time soon. One seem­ingly ob­vi­ous model up­date for the Mul­tistrada 950 plat­form would be to mir­ror the 1200 En­duro model by adding spoked wheels, longer legs and a raft of rally-style ac­ces­sories. But all the in­di­ca­tions sug­gest a 950 En­duro will not ap­pear at this year’s Mi­lan Show. With so lit­tle de­vel­op­ment work needed to cre­ate an En­duro ver­sion, the ever- in­creas­ing power and ca­pac­ity war amidst the range-top­pers, and the bur­geon­ing un­der­class of 8001100cc ad­ven­ture bikes – surely it’s a no-brainer for 2019? We hope so.
