2013 Ducati at MCN show

Ducati will arrive at the 2013 London Motorcycle Show with a plethora of new models and model updates.

 

Following their highly anticipated unveiling at the Milan International Motorcycle show in November 2012 Ducati's Hypermotards are now in production and ready to be delivered to dealers around the world.

Ducati claims the new bikes deliver an exciting and fun-filled experience, whether riding the daily commute or in the middle of track-day;  practical, everyday motorcycling or adrenalin rushes on two wheels.

STREET BIKE COMFORT

Both models introduce the new 82kW Ducati 821cc Testastretta 11° engine in a new trellis frame equipped with top-of-the range chassis components. The Hypermotard and Hypermotard SP’s styling give them an essential dirt-bike look while enabling agile performance.

The bikemaker describes the new bikes as having high ground-clearance, a thin waist and a commanding riding position, while providing street bike-comfort and component quality.

The bikes will start arriving in Ducati stores from March 2013 to join the Multistrada, updated Diavel and 848 and 1199 Panigale families in the 2013 Ducati model range.
