For one reason or another, there aren’t many white motorbikes out there, and of course the occasional police bike and so on. On the whole, the bike maker has steered clear of white, but in just two weeks the Italians from Motor Ducati 2023 have released two new sportswear based on this non-color.
The first, called White Rosso, was launched at the beginning of July for the Panigale V2 and now a second GP White has been launched for the new Multistrada 950S.
Like the V2, the Italian all-rounder is of course not all white, but mixes it with grey and Ducati red to produce an effect of “elegance, fluidity, and balance of lines”. We don’t know anything about it, but we think it looks cool and we don’t even really like white, especially considering how Ducati’s use in MotoGP has inspired it.
Apart from the addition of a new paint scheme (which will be available in dealerships from this month), there have been few changes to the stock 950
there are not many changes. The bike is powered by a 937cc Testastretta 11 engine with 113 hp and 96 torque Nm – from 2021 the unit will comply with Euro 5 specifications – and features ABS with electronic suspension, full LED headlights, a 5-inch color TFT display and Bosch Turning.
The Multistrada range of V-twin motorbikes was created in 2003 in the Italian horse stable, at that time primarily as a machine for road travel. It has had many embodiments over the years and is currently offered in eight models, from the entry-level 950 to the top-of-the-range 1260 Enduro.
For reference, the 950 S (known as the Spoked in the US market) is available after the entry-level, with prices starting from $17,395.
