About Bike Models Top Comparisons News Reviews

‘Multistrada’ translates from Italian to ‘many roads’ – and that is exactly what the Ducati Multistrada series is designed to do. It is the Italian manufacturer’s adventure-touring range, and these bikes are capable of taking on many different kinds of roads. There are two engine options for the Multistrada range: a 950cc L-twin and a 1260cc L-twin. There is a 1200cc engine in the Enduro, but it will soon be replaced by the 1260cc one. The 950cc Multistrada is geared towards tarmac touring, although it can be fitted with dual-sport... ‘Multistrada’ translates from Italian to ‘many roads’ – and that is exactly what the Ducati Multistrada series is designed to do. It is the Italian manufacturer’s adventure-touring range, and these bikes are capable of taking on many different kinds of roads.

There are two engine options for the Multistrada range: a 950cc L-twin and a 1260cc L-twin. There is a 1200cc engine in the Enduro, but it will soon be replaced by the 1260cc one. The 950cc Multistrada is geared towards tarmac touring, although it can be fitted with dual-sport tyres and spoke rims at the dealer level to make a ‘Multistrada 950 Enduro’ of sorts. However, it does not get the suspension and electronics tuning that goes into making the Multistrada 1200 Enduro as good off-road. The larger engine makes the 1200 Enduro more suited to off-road duties, but the spoke rims, dual-sport tyres and electronics geared towards off-road usage also help. One can also opt for proper off-road tyres at the dealer level.

The 1260cc Multistrada is the latest iteration of the range. It has a lot of updates, chief among which is the new engine. The extra displacement is only part of the story – variable valve timing makes it more flexible than the motor it replaces. As expected, it has all the bells and whistles expected of a flagship product from Ducati – a full electronics suite, a TFT instrument cluster, Bluetooth connectivity for both rider and pillion, and in the S variant, you also get semi-active electronic suspension.

The Multistrada range competes with other giants of the adventure-touring world like Triumph’s Tiger series and BMW GS series of motorcycles.

    Ducati Multistrada 950 First Ride Review

    If I were to put it in the simplest, most straightforward way, I'd say the Multistrada 950 is the consolation prize. You wanted the 1200S, and who wouldn't? It's fast, it's comfortable, it's desirable and it really is many motorcycles in one. But then, spending over Rs 20 lakhs for it isn't everyone's cup of tea. Read more
