Highlights

  • New Ducati Multistrada 950 unveiled at EICMA
  • Multistrada 950 powered by 937cc Testastretta L-twin engine
  • Will be priced around Rs 14 lakh in India

Ducati has introduced a new, smaller capacity Multistrada at the 2016 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy, extending the Multistrada line with a 937cc engine.

Design-wise, the new Multistrada 950 looks more or less similar to the Multistrada 1200, and will be a more affordable adventure model that will appeal to a wide range of riders - possibly to even those who may find the Multistrada 1200 a little overwhelming.

The 937cc Testastretta engine makes 113bhp at 9,000rpm and just over 96Nm of torque at 7750rpm. The smaller engine however, has not resulted in a much lighter bike; its dry weight remains close to the Multistrada's at 226kg, just 5 kg lighter than the Multistrada 1200.

Service intervals are now spaced at 15,000km while valve clearance inspection at every 30,000km.

The Multistrada 950 gets four riding modes (Touring, Sport, Urban and Enduro) via ride-by-wire and also gets the Ducati Safety Pack, which includes the latest Bosch ABS with 3-level adjustment and 8-level Ducati Traction Control. The frame is shared with the Multistrada 1200 and the Multistrada 1200 Enduro.

Like the Enduro, the Multistrada 950 gets a 19-inch front wheel and 17-inch rear wheel for more off-road performance. The Multistrada 950 is available in two colours - Ducati Red or Star White Silk. Expect the Multistrada 950 to be launched sometime next year in India, and priced at around Rs 13-14 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), it will compete squarely with Triumph's bestselling Tiger 800 series.
