Motorcycle Tyres for Ducati Multistrada Motorcyle
The Ducati Multistrada 950 is the smoother evolution of its slightly crazier cousin, the Ducati Multistrada 1200. Equally at home navigating tight city streets and touring uneven countryside roads, you can take this bike anywhere. It's the stuff of motorbike daydreams - you know the daydream where the bike is easy to handle and a smooth ride without sacrificing any of the rugged Ducati style.
We understand. Our team at Protyre is considered the UK's leading independent fitter and supplier of tyres. We know our bikes. We're here to talk about the Ducati Multistrada 950 and the best tyres to fit on this beautiful creation.

Boasting a Testastretta 937cc twin-cylinder engine with four valves per cylinder, the Multistrada 950 has been crowned EURO-4 approved, which, as we all know, is a tough title to achieve. Thanks to advances in technology, Ducati engineers are able to take even greater electronic control of the engine to keep it operating between the EURO-4's strict emissions parameters.
One of the genius improvements to this touring bike is the 19" front wheel, offering a bit more grunt for off-road riding. Bear in mind, though, that "off-road" doesn't mean you can launch yourself into the nearest rocky ravine and navigate it like a nimble mountain goat. Off-road on this bike is still deemed "casual", which means you can dabble but that's as far as it goes. The Multistrada 950 is, we remind you, more easygoing than its predecessor, and lighter too by five kilos. The 17" rear wheel stabilises the handling and generally makes for a smoother, more balanced rider experience.
Which brings us neatly round to the ideal tyres to attach to this rugged city beast. Make way for the tough off-road Pirelli Scorpion Trail II tyres, combining the best of sport touring and enduro performance in one tyre, complete with spoked alloys. The general rule of thumb is cast alloy wheels have a tendency to break when hitting inevitable bumps and cattle grids riding off-road. Spokes are considered hardier, and this is the option Pirelli have selected for their tough off-road Scorpion Trail II tyres. The Bi Compound mixture of this tyre blends superior grip with increased mileage.
