Petaling Jaya, 16 November 2017 – The sole importer and distributor of Ducati in Malaysia, launches the MY Ducati Adventure Series (MYDAS) with the inaugural “Campout with the Multistrada 950”, for local motoring media.
“For almost 17 years, we have been very proud to provide Malaysians a chance to not only own a Ducati but also the lifestyle that comes along with the premium brand. MYDAS is one of many engagements that we are actively organising to offer public an insight into the world of Ducati and grow the Ducati brand locally”, said Naza World Group of Companies, Group Executive Chairman, Datuk Wira SM Faisal Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin.
“The new Multistrada 950 is made for those who seek comfort and style and offers superior performance with an incredible riding ease – ideal for those who dream of riding a Ducati.
“It is perfect for urban daily commuting and extremely low ownership costs with the longest service intervals in the segment”, he added.
It is designed to put great performance within everyone’s grasp, especially for those who want to get in some touring (and perhaps enjoy the company of a passenger) and those who want an agile fun bike that’s ideal for everyday use, synonymous with the tagline, My First.
Utilising the Multistrada family’s trademark design and chassis geometry, the Multistrada 950 is lighter than the Multistrada 1200 and with a seat height of 840 mm, it sharpens the excellent dynamic performance. The 19” light alloy front wheel ensures comfort and fun on any road surface, asphalted or not.
Suspension with a generous 170 mm of travel and a twin-sided swingarm keep comfort levels high while giving the Multistrada 950 outstanding agility. Moreover, the 20-litre tank puts plenty of miles between refuelling stops. The 937 cm3 Testastretta engine delivers 113 hp at 9,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 96.2 Nm of torque at 7,750 rpm.
The four Riding Modes (Touring, Sport, Urban and Enduro) give the Multistrada 950 true 4-bikes-in-1 capability. Maintenance is as worry-free as it gets: the 937 cm3 Ducati Testastretta 11° twin cylinder engine has a maintenance interval of 15,000 km or 12 months, with valve clearance inspection every 30,000 km; and is now even more accessible with the two-year Smart Service Program introduced by Ducati Malaysia this year.
The Multistrada 950 also features the Ducati Safety Pack, which includes the latest Bosch 9.1 MP ABS with 3-level adjustment and 8-level Ducati Traction Control. These safety systems apply different intervention levels depending on the selected Riding Mode; riders can personalise them to set up the Multistrada 950 to match their individual needs and riding skills.
The Ducati Multistrada 950 starts from RM85,900.00 including GST.
