Few stories popping up on the interwebs about a smaller MTS....
A Baby Version of the Ducati Multistrada Cometh?
I think that would be a welcome addition to the Multistrada family and would compete well with the Yamaha FJ-09.
Yes, the new up coming SS 939 is supposedly good for 110 hp
But has been retuned for more usable torque, one could imagine such an engine in the baby strata to be quite useful/enjoyable. But wondering how many corners they'll cut on the bike generally? Eg suspension, electronics etc etc.

Depends on what you expect of it. If you expect it to be a full on Multistrada 1200 with a 939 engine, you're likely going to be disappointed. If you approach it as a competitor to the FJ-09 I would say not to get your hopes up on any electronic suspension bits. It'll likely have a shorter wheelbase and smaller saddlebags as well. Exciting time for Ducati, they've got a lot coming out in the near future. Personally, I'm waiting to see what the 939 Monster has in store.
I want to see what the enduro version turns out like. If they can keep the fripperies and lard off it, it might be a good bike....
Have not ridden the new Hyper939 as my 1100 is holding up just fine(aka I don't want to like the new one haha.) I am planning on test riding the enduro 1200 this week as it is everything I wanted my 13 multi to be and then some. Hope they build an enduro version with a 939 and that may be a game changer for me depending on final weight.
The 939 will be a hyperstrada with a braced swing arm, wire wheels and a smaller rear tire. 19" front, likely. No electronic suspension and probably three, maybe four, ride modes.
Since the pictures I've seen have shown the 939 Multistrada with mag wheels, I 'assume' you are predicting what an Enduro 939 will be, before Ducati even makes one ?
I'm referring more the above quoted picture. That wheel could be a 17" or 19" wheel, and cast in either case. It could be an enduro version, given the braced swingarm, just no wire wheels, as evidenced by the picture. And, wire wheels could be an option for the 'Strada 939 a la the different Scrambler models.
Two sided swingarms are usually on the cheaper versions, i.e. Monster 1200 vs 821, so I think that is the case with the 939.
The 1200 Enduro is the only exception I can think of..
So my dealer told me today that the 939 Multi is on their list for January release and has a base price of 14,995.
No word of an Enduro version. Not much info on the machine yet. He did say no cruise, damn it! That may automatically rule it out for Alaska next year.
I am pretty excited about the prospect of a lighter and shorter Multi.
Both my dealer and I agreed that no CC is a mistake on Ducati's part.
Two Sided swing arms are also STRONGER than their single sided counterparts. Especially if you intend to ride it off road.
It's a price point thing. This Multi is intended as a mid-range bike. Things like cruise control are generally left to range topping bikes.
Like the Triumph 800 Tigers.
Ducati will release a smaller version of its popular adventure-tourer, dubbed the Ducati Multistrada 939...
Enough power for me...will be interesting to see the rest of the specs when they come out.
To add to the discussion, just left my dealer who has just placed his Ducati order. He said expect a 19" front wheel on the smaller Multi. Time will tell.
Can't believe no one's posted this vid yet.
How cool is the espresso thrown in there?
