Ducati dealerships are participating in a nationwide demo weekend on 20/21 April to display and demonstrate the latest 2013 Ducati range and give customers that book a demo ride the opportunity to win a Ducati leather jacket.
April has been a busy time for dealers with up to six new models arriving from Bologna in recent weeks including Ducati’s flagship Superbike, the stunning 1199 Panigale R. Whilst the Panigale may draw the most attention, it cannot overshadow an incredible 2013 range that provides something for all tastes and types of riding.
The most recent addition to the range is the Hypermotard family, a bike designed for agility, performance and most of all, fun – a thrill seekers dream. The Hypermotard benefits from a new 4-valve water-cooled 821 cc engine that provides the spirit of the bike and is enhanced by riding mode technology. This state of the art technology includes traction control and ABS and is also available on the Hyperstrada and Hypermotard SP.
The Hypermotard SP provides the same thrills as a the standard Hypermotard but with a more uncompromising sporty style due to a raised set-up, forged Marchesini rims, fully adjustable suspensions with an ultralight Marzocchi aluminium yoke and Ohlins rear shock absorber. ABS and Ducati Traction Control (DTC) are standard.
For those that enjoy the motard style of the Hypermotard, but are looking for a more flexible and adaptable package then the Hyperstrada provides that in every way, ABS, DTC, windshield, side bags, dedicated ergonomics and a series of touring features offer a riding experience that still provides the thrills but further afield if required.
For the long distance rider, there is now the Multistrada Granturismo a worthy addition to the Multistrada range that now comes with ‘Skyhook’ technology. ‘Skyhook’ is semi-active suspension that now automatically ensures the best set-up every inch of the way and is standard on all ‘S’ models. The Grandturismo provides all the comforts and accessories that ensure a long distant ride can be enjoyed to the optimum. 73-litre panniers, top case, higher bars for more upright riding position, higher screen, engine protection bars and LED spotlights all add up to a bike that is ready to take on the world.
One of the other new bikes to arrive in dealerships recently and eagerly anticipated by many is the Diavel Strada, an evolution of the Diavel concept. The Diavel has always had a commanding presence and now even more so with an array of dedicated accessories – side bags, windshield, new seat and raised handlebars – make the Diavel Strada ideal to dominate the open road.
