On display at EICMA, Ducati’s MST950 will offer apackage powered by the well-received 937cc Testastretta L-twin, the same 113-horsepower engine found in the Hypermotard lineup. The engine, which produces 71 ft/lbs of torque at 7750rpm, was tuned to offer power throughout the rpm range.
At this stage it looks as if the bike will have 19-inch front/17-inch rear wheels, and Pirelli Scorpion Trail II tires (120/70 19 front; 170/60 17 rear). There’s no single-sided swingarm, and suspension is handled by a KYB 48mm upside-down forks and a Sachs shock. Both are fully adjustable, and like the Multistrada 1200 Enduro, both offer around 150mm of travel. Wheelbase will be the longest of the Multistrada range and the 950 weighs in at around 254kg. Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro modes are standard, as is ABS and an eight-level traction control system.
