‘Less is more than enough’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test - PHIL WEST GUEST TESTER

With just 113bhp and only the bare min­i­mum of Mul­tistrada good­ies it’s un­de­ni­ably ‘less’ in vir­tu­ally ev­ery way than the 1200. But, to be blunt, the 1200 had so much this is not a bad thing.

The re­sult, the 950, is still one of the most pow­er­ful and per­for­mance-ori­en­tated ad­ven­ture bikes in its class, is still a classy, en­joy­able sport­ster and still has plenty of those Du­cati op­tions and ac­ces­sories to tailor it to your per­sonal taste.

Best of all, start­ing at £10,995 (our test bike is £11,195) it has an aw­ful lot to of­fer com­pared to ri­vals such as the Africa Twin and still of­fers a gen­uine Mul­tistrada experience. Less is more than enough and the Mul­tistrada out­pow­ers the Honda here.
