LONDON, England - Depending on your taste and type of riding there's a Ducati for you at the 2013 London Motorcycle Show. The Italian bikemaker will reveal a number of new models and updates at the show from February 15-17.

Sports-bike riders will love the 145kW thoroughbred 1199R. The model spearheads Ducati's superbike range which sees a new white colour scheme for the 1199 and 1199S and a Corse test team livery for the 848 Evo Corse.

20 YEARS OF 'MONSTER'

Fans of the Hypermotard will be delighted to see the launch of the new liquid-cooled 82kW model available in three variants - the standard Hypermotard, the SP version for track riding and the Hyperstrada for longer journeys. The Hyperstrada has added practicality in the form of panniers and screen.

The Multistrada has been a huge success for Ducati and in 2013 a new version will sport the automaker's Skyhook technology on the Grandturismo version. The award winning Diavel receives new colours for 2013.

For many the Monster is the essence of Ducati and to celebrate 20 years of this iconic model it produced a special 20th-anniversary edition for the 696, 796 and 1100 Evo. These celebratory models come with a bronze-coloured frame, chromed headlights and a vintage Ducati ‘86 logo on the fuel tank.

The MCN award winning Streetfighter 848 will complete the 2013 Ducati range.
