The Ducati Multistrada 950 S BS6 was launched in November 2020, with prices starting at Rs. 15.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). At the time of the launch, it was the third BS6 model from Ducati in 2020, after the Panigale V2 and the Scrambler 1100 range. The Multistrada 950 S gets a BS6 compliant engine and updated electronics. The fairing design on the motorcycle was updated last year and it now looks similar to its bigger sibling, the Multistrada 1260. Here are the top 5 highlights of the Ducati Multistrada 950.
(The Multistrada 950 S, the top-spec version of the 950, gets a long list of hi-tech features, including electronic suspension with Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evo (DSS), Ducati Quick Shift Up and Down (DQS), essentially a bi-directional quick-shifter, full-LED headlight with Ducati Cornering Lights, a 5-inch full colour TFT display, Hands-Free system, cruise control and backlit handlebar controls and lastly, Bosch cornering anti-lock braking system (ABS)
(The engine stays the same on the 2020 Ducati Multistrada 950 S with power coming from the 937 cc L-Twin, liquid-cooled motor. The power and torque outputs stay the same too, which are 111 bhp at 9,000 rpm and peak torque of 96 Nm at 7,750 rpm. The 6-speed gearbox remains the same too, apart from the added quick-shifter. The Multistrada 950 S tips the scales at 230 kg (kerb weight) an increase of 3 kg compared to the current Multistrada 950 base model)
(The bike gets four riding modes – Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro. Each mode can be programmed to have different settings for the ABS and traction control. The Multistrada 950 S can be bought with both cast alloy and spoked wheels. The motorcycle gets a 19-inch front wheel to for added stability when tackling off-road terrain)
(It was in July 2020 that Ducati revealed the ‘GP White’ colour scheme on the Multistrada 950 S and now, about a year later, Ducati India launched the Multistrada 950 S in GP White colours at a price of Rs. 15.69 lakh (ex-showroom). The new paint scheme is inspired by Ducati’s MotoGP graphics. The new colour scheme has alternate white, grey and Ducati Red accents, and will be available in addition to the classic Ducati Red on the Multistrada 950 S)
