    I'm curious about this bike so would be interested in any opinions from Multi 950 owners that have ridden it.
    I'll probably try to get a test ride this summer.
    I'm curious about the V2 as well but pretty sure it'd cripple me.

    I test rode the previous model supersport back in 2017.





    I really wanted to like it, but it was a bit of a disappointment. I found the engine really didn't like low revs, so when riding through slow villages, or in traffic, it was horrid. It just wanted to be revved!

    The mirrors were dreadful, vibrating all over the place, may as well not have them.

    Although its not a touring bike, the official Ducati panniers design looked ugly and were really wide which would impact cornering and filtering.

    The latest version is getting good reviews though and the looks have improved (its more like a baby panigale), but IMO its a bike to take out on a Sunday blast for a couple of hours, so its a bit of a one trick pony.

    Definitely worth a test ride though and I'd be interested to hear your feedback afterwards.

    The issue with me & sports bikes is my arms are to short due to a big lump of flesh that gets in the way......AKA, my stomach  :150:
