Ducati to introduce Multistrada 939

Ducati is introducing a slightly shrunken and cheaper Multistrada based on the same engine as the Monster and Hypermotard. It also apparently is expected to use the same rear swing arm as the new Multistrada 1200 Adventure. Like the Versys it is a sport oriented Adventure bike and will use a 17inch front wheel and medium travel suspension and has a strong road bias rather than targeted toward the (60%/40%) dual sport side like the Honda Africa Twin, Triumph 800XC or BMW800GS which all have 21 inch front wheels and softer, longer travel suspension. It is expected to compete against the Versys 1000, Suzuki VStrom 1000, Triumph Tiger 800 XR, Yamaha FJ09 and others. The sport adventure bike category as well as the enduro adventure bike categories seem to be really heating up.

I went on a long ride a couple of days ago, roughly 445 miles, through the hills of Arkansas. I saw lots of BMW GS and Harley flocks but wound up parking next to a beautiful white Multistrada at a state park lodge. I noticed they did not have an airhawk on their seat like I did. I suppose they don't need one on their bikes.

Do the smaller Ducati engines still use the desmo heads?

All Ducs use desmo valve setups.
