    Ducati's 2019 950cc adventure weapon gets major changes

    Interesting article from MCN on the next updated version of the 950.

    https://www.motorcyclenews.com/news/2018/october/ducati-multistrada-950-spied/

    The clutch change is welcome as the current cable version is very snatchy from cold.

    Whats everyone's thoughts on the changes for the updated version ?????  :084:

    My thought is maybe I should have waited! Oh well, I have had 8600 fabulous kilometers on my bike so far and look forward to many more! The only problem I have had so far is my fuel sensor has gone bad and I haven't had time to get it to the dealer yet to get it checked out...Brian

    The hydraulic clutch would have been a welcome addition to my ride. I must be getting lazy  in my old age.

    True to Ducati marketing it will probably be a really expensive add on.

    I don't see enough changes to get excited about. It is a shame that they didn't included cruise control or may be we just hav'ent heard about it yet

    I hope they will make an update to the suspensions too (I think the weakest point of our fantastic bike). I don't dream for semi-active suspensions as the 1260 S, just something more performing...

    As already said, switching out the cable clutch for hydraulic is a good move. IMU based safety features are also worthwhile i guess although i doubt i use that stuff much day-to-day.

    I don't like the aesthetic changes, especially the grey swing arm (and hand-guards?). Cruise control would have made a lot of sense.

    All in all, not enough to tempt me into a swap or make me regret my purchase, especially since it comes with a price-hike.

    may-be the existing models will be sold off at a good price and if that was the case I wold consider upgrading to a fresher model]#

    Well, having only picked up my new MS today all I can say is I'm impressed with the current bike, so difficult at this stage to comment on what might be improved - though cruise control would have been nice.
    Not worried about a newer version being imminent - I got a very good deal and it's going to be a keeper. At least now I'm in possession of a bike when I comment on here!
    Only initial issue I have after the ride home is the slightly odd position of the footbrake which I found awkward - compared to one's natural foot position it felt both a bit too low and 'in' towards the bike. And there doesn't appear to be any available adjustment. Anyone else found it a problem - any solutions?
