THE FACTS O 113bhp O 227kg O Seat height 840mm

HIGH­LIGHTS O New Mul­tistrada model O 937cc liq­uid-cooled Tes­tas­tretta V-twin O ABS and Du­cati Trac­tion Con­trol

This is the new Mul­tistrada 950, and it opens up the model range to a whole new group of rid­ers who may cur­rently be ac­tively put off by the scale, power, or fo­cus of the 1200 range.

The en­gine is the 937cc Tes­tas­tretta unit, which de­liv­ers a claimed 113bhp at 9000rpm, and 70.95ftlb torque at 7750rpm – a com­bi­na­tion that should make the 950 feel like a lively ride, with­out it ever turn­ing threat­en­ing. There are four rid­ing modes ( Tour­ing, Sport, Ur­ban and En­duro), and the new Multi also gets the Du­cati Safety Pack, which in­cludes the lat­est Bosch 9.1 MP ABS with three-level ad­just­ment and eight-level Du­cati Trac­tion Con­trol. This could be the most per­fectly bal­anced Mul­tistrada yet.
