Multistrada 950 combines Multistrada 1260 and Multistrada 1260 Enduro’s design
features to perfection, taking the 'lightest' elements from both. The front end
- with the distinctive horizontally extended headlight, the 'beak', adjustable
screen, side 'wings' and tank - takes its cue from the Multistrada 1260. The
rider's seat, passenger seat, rear grab rail, the design of the exhaust and
swingarm and the wheel sizes are, instead, inspired from the Multistrada 1260
Enduro. This mix has produced a bike with classic Multistrada lines that's also
compact, and not just visually. The Multistrada 950 S include the new, lighter
aluminium alloy wheels.
tubular steel Trellis frame is linked to a new, lighter double-sided aluminium swingarm,
giving the new Multistrada 950 excellent dynamic performance. The 19"
front wheel ensures comfort and fun on any road surface, asphalted or not, in
the city or on country tracks. Suspension with a generous 170 mm of travel keep
comfort levels high while ensuring outstanding agility. Moreover, the 20-litre
tank puts plenty of kilometers between refueling stops.
with long-range touring in mind, the Multistrada 950 has been designed to
ensure outstanding comfort even when fully laden. This has resulted in an
ergonomic “triangle” that guarantees comfort and control for rider and
passenger alike. The Multistrada 950 fly screen allows for one-handed vertical
adjustment within a range of 60 mm; the accessory line also includes a lower
screen. There are two 12 V power sockets, one in the zone immediately beneath
the passenger seat, the other in the dashboard zone. These can be used to power
items such as thermal clothing, intercoms or mobile phone chargers. The Garmin
sat-nav, available as a Ducati Performance accessory, is powered via a
dedicated connector. There's also a USB port underneath the seat, which can be
used to charge smartphones.

Cornering device, an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP). Bosch
Cornering ABS makes use of the Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform
to optimize front and rear braking power even in critical situations and with
the bike at considerable lean angles. Through interaction with the Riding
Modes, the system provides solutions suitable for any situation or riding
