Live With This: 2017 Ducati Multistrada 950 Review

Yes, we just included the new 2017 Ducati Multistrada 950 in a little three-bike comparison test last week, where it finished less than one percentage point away from the win. Since then, I’ve had the chance to spend more time on the bike in my native habitat, and I can now reconfirm how right I was in the first place! As usual. Mostly.

The 937cc Testastretta 11-degree V-Twin is a tremendously sweet “little” motor to use, and if we could travel back in time and run it against a Raymond Roche Ducati 888 (which at the time was “big”), I think the two would be right on par with each other – right at 100 smooth and progressive horses at the rear wheel. The gearbox in the new bike is less positive than the old one, but the light-pull slip/assist clutch means you don’t mind if you have to shift twice now and then. At 2700 miles, the gearbox should be getting better but really isn’t. It’s tough to find neutral from first or second. It shifts best when you’re wearing heavy boots.
