Ducati reveals Hypermotard 950 for 2019

Posted: Sunday 04 November 2018 at 21:34 PM / Ducati

After announcing an updated Diavel and a frankly hilariously dangerous sounding Panigale V4R, Ducati also announced a new Hypermotard 950 for 2019 at their World Premiere 2019 event in Milan, ahead of EICMA. This is great news, because motards are awesome, and big powerful ones are even awesomer – what could be better than a […]

We’re out on the launch of Ducati‘s updated for 2019 Scrambler Icon, just like we mentioned a week or so ago.

Posted: Monday 09 March 2015 at 08:49 AM / Ducati

  I’ve been here before. Lanzarote that is. Riding a new Ducati Multistrada. In fact, it’s five years since Ducati launched the first of the current Multistrada 1200 model, the Bolognan firm’s take on the full-bore mega-bhp adventure touring bike. Where bikes like BMW’s R1200GS and Triumph’s Tiger had been happy to plow the big […]
