Ducati Multistrada range to be expanded with a sub-1,000 cc offering.

Last month, it was reported based on spy shots from Italy that Ducati could be readying a less potent but more economical version of the Ducati Multistrada 1200. Images published by MoreBikes.co.uk this week confirm that a Ducati Multistrada 939 does exist.

The Ducati Mutistrada 939 was captured naked at an Italian garage and seems to be a production-ready model. The smaller version could be lower in height and have a slightly different riding position. Unlike the Multistrada 1200S which has a single-sided swingarm, the Mutistrada 939 has a double-sided swingarm.

The Multistrada 939 is said to be powered by the 937 cc Testastretta engine from the Ducati SuperSport, Ducati Hypermotard 939 and Ducati Hyperstrada 939. The British publication sharing the images says that the engine will be tuned to produce around 158 bhp and 98 Nm of torque in the new variant. Three riding modes and switchable traction control are among known features.
