I've used Galfer rear rotors on multiple bikes (not my MTS yet) with very good results.

What I learned the hard way in my link in post #8 is that unless the aftermarket rear rotor comes pre-tapped to accept the screws that attach the ABS sensor ring, you're out of luck. Like the OP, I searched high and low with no luck and had to go back to stock.

As that was a few years ago, maybe there is an option out there now, but like the OP is finding out, it's a fairly rare bird if it does exist.

A quick check and all I'm seeing are Brembo rear rotors which I think are our stock ones. At 4.5mm they are thinner than some of the 6mm aftermarket options.

I see your model year problem and feel your pain. Certainly not the first time the EBay fitment system has made a model year mistake.

I spoke with Robert Keller at EBC to confirm that they have nothing in the works.

You might try to get the Brembo P/N off your old one and see if you can get a replacement from Brembo for less than Ducati. Perhaps you already tried that.

If it is a matter of the same rotor as a 2012 with an ABS ring that you could transfer from your old one or different bolt hole sizes, it might be trivial to adapt depending upon your skill set, equipment and the value of your time. I don't have a way to visually compare them.

I try to be thorough. I rarely return to a thread. If you have a question for me, PM me.

I just got a used one from a member on here. So it's taken care of. Was just hoping to upgrade to a better rotor. Thank you for the help.

You aren't going to notice any difference between a stock rear rotor and aftermarket. The only difference is cost.

On a side note, I don't know where the speedo sensor is on the newer Multi but a friend of mine bought an EBC rotor for his 2007 Multi but it didn't have the metal rivet for the speedo sensor and EBC didn't have one that did despite them saying this rotor was a direct fit for his bike. He ended up buying an OEM rotor from Ducati at three times the cost and returning the EBC rotor.

Especially for those whose rear brakes have never worked right. LOL

Yeah, EBC got me too with the "direct fit" trick when I tried to replace my rear rotor a few years back. The EBC V rotors I have up front are 6mm thick while stock is 5mm and definitely work better, but that may not be saying much.

The cheap rotors that nearly all manufactures slap on their bikes these days is a shame. On forums for nearly any motorcycle brand you can read about pulsating or warped/hot spotted stock rotors. I don't remember seeing that as much 10, 20, 30 years ago. Way of the world these days I guess.

My rear brake works fine. It isn't overly strong but it does work adequately in my opinion, nothing a change of the rear rotor would fix No pulsating or other problems. Front brakes could probably stand better rotors and pads but I probably won't replace them until I wear these out. Haven't managed to do that yet in 11,000 miles.
