The service intervals for the Multistrada 950 are scheduled every 15,000 km, thus reducing the owner’s duties and costs. Thanks to Ducati’s continuous investment into quality and reliability, the 937 cc Testastretta 11° has allowed for another step to be taken in terms of service scheduling; the valve clearance check is now required every 30,000 km, a great advantage for Ducati customers.
The Multistrada 950 is powered by the already renowned twin cylinder 937 cm3 Testastretta 11°, now extensively overhauled. EURO 4-rated, it has four valves per cylinder, liquid cooling and bore and stroke measurements of 94 and 67.5 mm respectively. Engine power amounts to a maximum of 113 hp at 9,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 96.2 Nm at 7,750 rpm. The compression ratio is 12.6:1.
The twin cylinder Testastretta 11° engine on the Multistrada 950 features two new cylinder heads with a redesigned oil circuit and secondary air intake ducts on the covers.

Moreover, this engine also features a new control unit and electronic injection system. The exhaust system is of the 2-1-2 type with lateral silencer.
The exhaust system layout is based on two primary manifolds that merge directly in the single 2-chamber silencer; the latter, in addition to acting as a 2-1-2 collector, contains the catalytic converter. From here two pipes exit directly towards the light, compact silencers, which are side-mounted in a high position and feature aluminium alloy outer sleeves.
The Multistrada 950 is equipped with alloy rims on which are mounted Pirelli SCORPION Trail II tyres in sizes 120/70 R19 at the front and 170/60 R17 at the rear. SCORPION Trail II.
