2017 Ducati Multistrada 950 Red, 2017 Ducati Multistrada 950 Red My First. My Last. My Everything The new Multistrada 950 combines comfort, style and superior performance with an incredible riding ease: this is the ideal bike for those who dream of riding a real Ducati. With its Testastretta 937 cc and 19 front wheel, the new Multistrada 950 is perfect for riding on all terrain, even for urban daily commuting, also thanks to its low consumption and extremely low ownership costs. The essence of versatility Ducati presents the new Multistrada 950, the Bologna-based bike manufacturer's smallest multibike, designed to provide all the excitement of the Multistrada in a way that makes it more accessible and versatile. Designed to put great performance within everyone's grasp, the Multistrada 950 is for those who want to get in some touring (and perhaps enjoy the company of a passenger) and those who want an agile fun bike that's ideal for everyday use. Design When the Ducati Design Center started working on the Multistrada 950 the goal was to develop a compact, eye-pleasing bike that had to be, above all else, a true Multistrada. That's why it takes its cue from the two bigger-engined Multistrada family members. The Multistrada 950 combines Multistrada 1200 and Multistrada 1200 Enduro design features to perfection, taking the lightest elements from both. The front-on view, with the distinctive headlight, 'beak', adjustable screen, two 'wings' and tank come from the Multistrada 1200. The rider's seat with narrow mid-section, the passenger seat, rear grab rail, the design of the exhaust and swingarm and the wheel sizes were, instead, taken from the Multistrada 1200 Enduro. This mix has produced a bike with classic Multistrada lines that's also compact, and not just visually. The Multistrada 950 is available in two colours; classic Ducati Red and stylish Star White Silk. Both colour schemes feature matt grey frame and wheels. Testastretta 11 The Multistrada 950 is powered by the already renowned twin cylinder 937 cm3 Testastretta 11 , now extensively overhauled. EURO 4-rated, it has four valves per cylinder, liquid cooling and bore and stroke measurements of 94 and 67.5 mm respectively. Engine power amounts to a maximum of 113 hp at 9,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 96.2 Nm at 7,750 rpm. The compression ratio is 12.6:1. The power values indicated above are measured using a chassis dynamometer. Homologated power data, as quoted in the Bike Registration Document, are measured using an engine dynamometer according to the homologation regulation. The two power values may differ because of the different measurement equipments.
