Features

Chassis

  • FRAME: The Multistrada 950 features minimum ground clearance of 183.5 mm. The 1,594 mm wheelbase ensures optimal load balance, which consists of the rider and the side panniers, where available, with ensuing benefits in terms of dynamic performance. Lighter double-sided swinging arm is made of shell cast aluminium.
  • DUCATI SKYHOOK SUSPENSION (DSS) EVO: The DSS Evo system acts continuously to guarantee the perfect balance of the vehicle in all road and load conditions, providing both rider and passenger with maximum comfort. The DSS Evo system makes it possible to vary the bike's setup in a practical, intuitive and quick manner using the HMI interface, to have the ideal suspension in any conditions. Simply select the riding mode – Touring, Sport, Urban or Enduro – and the load condition – single rider, rider with panniers, rider with passenger and rider with passenger and panniers. Moreover, it is also possible to act separately on the fork and on the shock absorber to make a fine adjustment of the front and rear suspension without the need for complicated settings. The system configuration possibilities are almost unlimited and there are up to 400 combinations of the parameters that can be electronically selected by the rider via the interface.
  • TIRES AND RIMS: This tyre was designed for the most demanding riders; its strengths include durability, consistency of performance throughout its life cycle and top performance on wet surfaces.

Engine

  • TESTASTRETTA 11°: This engine can deliver a maximum power of 113 hp at 9,000 rpm, with maximum torque of 96 Nm at 7,750 rpm; the compression ratio is 12.6:1. The Multistrada 950 engine breathes thanks to cylindrical-section throttle bodies with a diameter of 53 mm and a state of the art full Ride-by-Wire system. Maintenance intervals are expected to be every 15,000 km (or 12 months), while valve play must be checked every 30,000 km.
  • DUCATI QUICKSHIFT (DQS): The system works both when upshifting, for full throttle racing accelerations, and downshifting, with the reduction being more fluid thanks to the "blipper" that harmonises the engine's revolutions with the rotation speed of the primary shaft to avoid jamming, all supported by a clutch with anti-hop system. DQS is available as an accessory on Multistrada 950.
  • HYDRAULIC CLUTCH: The Multistrada 950 is equipped with a wet clutch with self-servo action and anti-hop function. Its hydraulic control system with adjustable lever help reduce lever effort. Because of this, the Multistrada 950 is easier on the gears, especially on city streets where acceleration and downshifting are more frequent.
  • EXHAUST SYSTEM: The exhaust system layout consists of two primary manifolds converging directly into the 2-chamber muffler that acts as a union, houses the catalytic converter and ends with a single side tailpipe, which was redesigned and made smaller in order to optimize performance and noise output.

Equipment

  • HUMAN MACHINE INTERFACE (HMI): Besides being nice to look at, the, completely redesigned HMI (Human Machine Interface) makes menu navigation and changing settings extremely easy and intuitive.
  • DUCATI CORNERING LIGHTS (DCL): Moreover, the Multistrada 950 S headlight is a equipped with the Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL) function that optimises illumination of the road when riding around a bend based on the leaning angle of the bike. The whole Multistrada 950 range features automatic switch-off of indicators based on the leaning angle of the bike. Thanks to the use of the IMU inertial platform, the turn signals turn off after finishing the turn or after having travelled a certain distance.
  • DUCATI LINK APP: In addition, the app makes available information on maintenance schedules, the user manual and the Ducati Store locator. Finally, the app lets you record your performance and travel itineraries so you can share your experiences on the Multistrada 950.
  • CRUISE CONTROL AND HANDS FREE: The Multistrada 950 S can be turned on without a key thanks to a Hands Free system that raises safety standards. Just get walk towards your bike with the electronic key in your pocket. When you are about 2 metres away the bike will recognise the key code and allow activation. At this point you can press the key-on button to turn on the instrument panel and then start the engine.

Safety

  • BOSCH ABS CORNERING: ABS Cornering exploits Bosch's 6 axis IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform to maximise balancing of the braking power delivered to the front and rear wheels even in critical situations and with the motorcycle in a leaning position. By interacting with the Riding Modes, the system is able to provide the ideal solution for every situation and riding condition. Thanks to an ABS control processor, the Multistrada 950 boasts a front and rear Electronic Combined Braking System, optimised for Urban and Touring Riding Modes, but with reduced action in Sport mode, a context where preference is given to non-fully automated control. The combined braking system increases braking stability by using four pressure gauges, to best distribute the braking power between the front and rear wheels. Conceived to improve rear tyre control in abrupt braking situations, the "lift-up prevention" function of the ABS system is fully enabled in Urban and Touring Riding Modes, while it is deactivated for use in Sport and Enduro mode. The ABS function is also available for front brakes only, a feature that Multistrada exploits in the Enduro Riding Mode in order to allow rear drifts when braking on bumpy ground. The system integrates perfectly with the Ducati Riding Modes and interacts on three different levels. Level 1 offers the highest performance for off-road use, eliminating rear lift-up detection and allowing the drift during braking with the ABS applied to the front only. Level 2 ensures the balance between the front and rear without the rear wheel lift-up detection when riding in Sport mode, but with the cornering feature enabled and calibrated for a sporting character riding style, level 3 allows optimisation of the combined braking action in the Touring and Urban modes with rear wheel lift-up detection and the cornering feature enabled and calibrated for ultimate safety.
  • DUCATI TRACTION CONTROL (DTC): The system allows to choose among 8 different profiles, each of which has been calibrated to offer a tolerance to rear slippage commensurate with progressive levels of riding ability.
  • VEHICLE HOLD CONTROL (VHC): This feature is activated when the motorcycle is at a standstill with the side stand retracted, and the rider applies high pressure to the front brake lever or the rear brake pedal.
