    Will we see a V4 950S?

    2021 sees a 1260 Multistrada V4... cast around the internet for articles and pictures from the factory in Bologna. Official unveiling later on this month.

    Anyone care to speculate if there will eventually be a V4 950S?
    Kind Regards,

    I think we will find the new V4 engine on a 1260 bike, then on the 950 model. What I know for sure it's that I will take it for a test drive (maybe Feb-Mar next year) and depending on the price possibly I will buy the V4 950S.
    I like the Ducati V2 engine so so much and I don't know how a V4 will behave.

    The new Multi will have a 1100cc engine in the motorbike and a 19 inch front wheel like the 950. Pricewise it's located between de 950 and 1260.

    The new V4 will have a brand new 1100cc not a 1260.....it will replace the 1260 & the enduro versions which will be discontinued, so it will either be a 950s or the V4 as the only options in the multistrada range.
    If I had a second brain cell it would be so lonely......

    As soon as possible i will make a test ride to compare it with my 950S,
    I'm curieus just to see if it'is any good and worth the extra money compared to the 950S, the 1260 was not worth the extra money to my believe.

    Beeing a V4 engine, what you think about the heat? It will deliver more heat to the rider?  I am curious also about the weight.

    I'm not that bothered about a V4, however I am looking forward to the front and rear radar technology eventually filtering down to other models and being available on the 950S.

    Well done to Ducati on being the first motorcycle manufacturer to release this safety technology.

    There's still a lot of missing pieces on this puzzle.

    So far what has been seen/leaked about the new MS V4:
    - 19" front wheel
    - Double swingarm
    - V4 engine is a 1158cc and produces 170hp
    - V4 engine is 2kg lighter than the current 1260 (officially told by Ducati)
    - Front and rear radars (officially told by Ducati)
    - Something around 60.000km (officially told by Ducati, but not exactly what about it)

    What is still unknown/speculation:
    - total weight of the new bike (engine is lighter, but what about the added weight of the double swingarm, the bigger front wheel, the radar systems, etc?)
    - will it replace the 1260 entire line? Or only the Enduro? Or not the Enduro but yes to the "regular"? Will this be an extra model on the lineup?
    - what will the price be? I seriously doubt it will cost less than a 1260S.... why would they launch something new and better (in theory) for a cheaper price?!?

    Coming back to the topic's question: I doubt we'll see a V4 in the 950...... they haven't done on the Panigale V2, nor on the Supersport, why would they do on the 950 (unfortunately a bike that is not really selling well - at least not here in the USA, the land of the "bigger the better")?
