Written By:

Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati has revealed the Mutistrada 950 at the 2016 EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy. 

The all-new Mutistrada 950 will be the new entry level motorcycle in Ducati's Mutistrada range of adventure tourer motorcycles.

The new Mutistrada 950 is powered by the same 937cc L-twin engine found in the Ducati SuperSport that was unveiled at Intermot 2016.

The engine produces 111.4bhp and 96.2Nm of torque and has a service interval of 12 months or almost every 14,500 kilometres.

To take care of the rough stuff, there are is fully adjustable suspension on both ends of the new bike.

Braking duties are handled by Brembo M4.32 monobloc radial calipers and dual 320 mm discs up front, and a 265mm disc and floating Brembo caliper at the rear which are helped along with a 3-level ABS system from Bosch.

The new Mutistrada sits on a 19-inch rim up front which is shod with 120/70 R19 tyres, while at the rear, the new multi-function bike sits on a 17-inch wheel fitted with 170/60 R17 tyres. Both tyres are Pirelli's Scorpion Trail II units.

Design wise, the Mutistrada 950 looks a lot like its older sibling the Mutistrada 1200 but it features an all new LCD display that shows various details like shows speed, rpm, total distance ridden along with riding mode info.

Ducati has added a whole lot of safety features to the new Mutistrada including four riding modes, 8-level traction control and the previously mentioned 3-way ABS.

The Mutistrada 950 will compete with the likes of the Triumph Tiger, Honda Africa Twin, Kawasaki Versys 1000 and Suzuki V-Strom.
