    Has anyone in Europe seen this new warranty?  It is not yet available in the US.

    It was a result of the long term 50,000 Km test.
    https://www.ducati.com/ww/en/bikes/multistrada/multistrada-950/top-form-review-motociclismo

    The warranty page:
    https://www.ducati.com/it/it/garanzia-ducati/four-ever-multistrada

    It is a new 4 year, unlimited mileage warranty on all 2020 Multistrada models purchase on or after Nov 1 2019.

    I have an extended factory warranty and service contract for 3 yrs on my 950.

    Hi motorman. I collect my new 950s on the 2nd March here in the UK and can confirm it does come with a 4 year warranty.

    I would feel the same in your situation.  I did wonder how you early adopters would feel about the change.  In any case for any Mutley 950 owner we can expect good reliability regardless of model year, as it's the same bike for the most part.

    I wonder if the new 4 year warranty will give us earlier buyers any weight to arguing for 'just out of 2 year warranty' claims ???

    Thanks for the motociclismo 50k test motorman! If only all magazine bike tests were so thorough...

    What do you gents think about the fact the the viscosity of the oil was out of spec (consistently too low by some margin) at every service interval?

    Is there an argument for more frequent oil changes or more viscous oil do you think?

    Your welcome Nibor! 

    With respect to changing the oil more frequently I would argue it depends on your mileage, riding style, etc.  In 9,000 miles, I added 1 1/2 quarts of oil.  However, Ducati obviously has confidence in the build specs, and metallurgy of the engine.  Furthermore, a scan of the forums and you tube reveal a number of post 2012 Multistradas (1200) with OVER 100k MILES and the only the scheduled maintenance.  However, fresh oil would, in theory provide a slightly smoother shifting tranny.  Since I don't have the experience mileage wise, I'll let others voice their experiences on the Multistrada.

    40000 miles to date with nothing over and above the scheduled maintenance. The bike runs as well, if not better, than when new. In the early days I would occasionally top up the oil but now it doesn’t appear to use any whatsoever. Looking forward to the next 40000  :002:
