The bike is rumoured to be built around the 937cc liquid-cooled engine found in the Hyperstrada 939 and also appears to feature the same frame as the Multistrada 1200, plus a double-sided swingarm. The image seems to show it’s set up for touring, too.
Presumably, the new model is part of Ducati’s effort to further consolidate its position in the adventure sector, following the launch of Multistrada Enduro earlier this year.
There’s no official word on the mini Multistrada as of yet, but with EICMA on the horizon, there’s every chance that we could be seeing it break cover at the Milan show. As ever, we’ll keep you in the loop when we know more.
