    Will steal sales of the MV Turismo Veloce, which is already selling in very small numbers.

    I agree, 113 hp is plenty to have fun. Looking forward to riding one.

    I came in late, did they mention anything about pricing?

    No info on pricing yet. I'm sure it wont be cheap, but it should be cheaper than the 1200.

    I had heard rumors of a "baby" Multistrada (or Multistrada "light"), with the 937cc engine, being one of the new models at EICMA. I thought, "isn't that sort of what the Hyperstrada is", and now I see the Hyperstrada is off the Ducati USA site.

    I wish they'd stop screwing around and just build a 1200cc ST4 replacement.

    You and me, especially if they would put belt drive on it like the Diavel.

    I would like to see a list of options. I need cruise control.

    Interesting. I like seeing a smaller multi. Thought the hyper was too small for me two up so can't wait to try this one on for size.

    My understanding is that there isn't cruise control and that the 950 will replace the base 1200 Multistrada.

    I can understand wanting the CC. My MTS is the first bike for me with a true cruise, and it is great to have. The lack of CC is the only negative I can see on the 950, if it proves correct.

    +2 on cruise. Any bike meant to put decent miles on should have it. At the very least Ducati should offer it as an accessory.

    You're probably right. I never thought about it since I've always considered multistradas to be street bikes. Mod can move it if so inclined.
    Price is pretty competitive.

    Agreed. With a ride by wire throttle there's just no excuse not to have cruise control.

    this could be something I would consider if it has cruise , don't want to spend $20k again. Resale sucks on Ducati's!

    Save money and buy a used 1200 with cruise (and extended warranty) for less $ than a new 950?

    I'm sure it will be a nice bike, the Multi 950, but as mentioned, with the lack of cruise control & adjustable seat would have me looking for a 1200, used or new(a base 1200 would be fine). I see no real advantage at this time.

    I still look at the Yamaha FJ-09 as a better value, being that a new, non-current model can be bought for around $8k, comes with a centerstand, and the aftermarket has come out with a cruise control kit.

    I am very intrigued by this, I owned a Multistrada 1200 for almost 3 years and while I loved the ergonomics and the motor, I hated the piss poor keyless ignition system. They never could sort it out and it was ultimately one of the reasons I sold it. Most of my riding is commuting, and I think this would fit the bill perfectly. Plus it has a real key. I do agree about the cruise control, there's no reason why they couldn't have added it. Remember it did take them 5 years to finally add it to the 1200, so maybe they are a bit slow.
