Du­cati 950 gets slicker and safer for 2019

MCN - - THIS WEEK -

Du­cati have up­dated the Mul­tistrada 950 with a host of new safety aids. The big­gest change is a six-axis Bosch IMU, which brings with it Cor­ner­ing ABS and Ve­hi­cle Hold Con­trol (for hill starts) and self­can­celling in­di­ca­tors. The en­gine now comes with a self-servo hy­draulic slip­per clutch, light­en­ing the lever ac­tion. The styling has had a small up­date while the swingarm and wheels have been light­ened. The ex­tra £1600 for the new S-model gets you Sky­hook elec­tronic sus­pen­sion plus a bidi­rec­tional quick­shifter, cor­ner­ing lights, LED head­light, TFT dash, cruise con­trol and back­lit switchgear. Rider modes com­prise Sport, Tour­ing, Ur­ban and En­duro. There’s also now a spoked rim ver­sion, too.
