With just a matter of weeks to go until the final unveiling of Ducati’s brand new 1199 Panigale at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan (10-13 November), the Italian manufacturer now reveals the secrets behind the awesome power of its 2012 Superbike.
Just weeks away from the unveiling of Ducati’s new 1199 Panigale Superbike at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan (10-13 November) and following the recent release and launch of the brand new Streetfighter 848, Ducati now reveal even more details of next year’s range.
Having proved its innovative concept and established itself as a new industry benchmark, the award-winning Ducati Multistrada family moves into 2012 as the company’s top-selling motorcycle and with the confident range of Multistrada 1200, 1200 S Sport, 1200 S Sport Pikes Peak Special Edition and 1200 S Touring. While all 2012 models will have revised seats with comfort-enhancing increased rider’s seat length front and rear, the Multistrada 1200 S Touring will also be offered in a brand new “race titanium matte” colour scheme with “racing black” frame. The new colour scheme is in addition to the currently available red and arctic white.
The 2012 Hypermotard 1100EVO SP will now be available as a Corse Edition, taking the whole Hypermotard concept to a higher level in Ducati Corse style. High ground clearance, high spec suspension and high bars make the 1100EVO SP Corse Edition track-ready for action in full red, white and black Ducati Corse official colours.
In addition to existing model updates, a brand new 2012 Ducati Monster 795 model, developed exclusively for Asia, will be unveiled during the upcoming Sepang MotoGP event in Malaysia. The specially developed model represents an important introduction for the iconic Monster model into the Asia Pacific. -Official Ducati Press release
Ducati has been very busy lately with lots of their bike lineup. 1199 Panigale is the 2012 version of its superbike with two cylinder and 1199cc engine. It is going to be officially released this November.
The wait is almost over, the Ducati 1199 Panigale on its way.
The new generation Superbike will be unveiled at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan 10-13 November.
The new model not only will deliver record performance, breathtaking design and technical innovation, it also breaks with our Superbike tradition by adding a name to its 1199cc engine capacity, making a significant and warm association to its historic roots in the Borgo Panigale (pronounced “Pan-ee-gah-lee”) area of Bologna. In an Italian territory known as “Motor Valley” and where high performance and racing runs through the veins of its passionate people, we decided to underline our pride in being world ambassadors for the “Made in Italy” title by immortalizing our home town in the name of the best sportsbike ever built.
It looks brutal and dangerous. It looks like it ready to fight on the street. Aggressive styling and naked looks make it desirable enough for riders in search for good middleweight street bike.
Ducati confirm their 2012 Streetfighter 848 with the first officially released images of the brand new model set to add everyday accessibility to the Italian manufacturer’s famous naked sport bike family.
Combining a new and brilliantly engineered 848 Testastretta 11° engine with the enhanced geometry of a chassis that provides confidence-inspiring agility, the Streetfighter 848 has enriched its user-friendliness with a smooth and flexible power delivery, revised ergonomics and Ducati Traction Control.
The Ducati Streetfighter scored a round one knock-out when it entered the ring for the first time at the Milan show back in November 2008, winning the ‘Most Beautiful Bike’ award and raising the bar for extreme nakeds. Its asphalt-ripping reputation became the desire of sport naked connoisseurs throughout the world and the Streetfighter 848 will now widen that appeal even further with enhanced usability.
Available from November 2011 onwards, the new fighter is dressed in red for Ducati traditionalists, while yellow makes a return for mid-range purists and “dark stealth” provides a matte-black reminder of the Streetfighter’s aggressive image.
