WHAT ABOUT A 950 ENDURO?
Small Multi may have to wait for a makeover
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.
