Ducati will attend this year’s Motorcycle Live at the NEC with the unveiling of a new model that is sure to steal the show. In 2009, the Multistrada stunned visitors with its technology and innovation, in 2010 the Diavel wowed the crowds by redefining and reinventing the cruiser class and now this year Motorcycle Live will play host to the new 1199 Panigale spearheading the most impressive model range in Ducati’s history.

Although the 1199 will no doubt dominate the headlines, the Ducati stand more than ever has something for everyone. The Diavel, MCN’s machine of the year has an undoubted presence and those drawn to this award winning and acclaimed bike will be able to see for the first time the limited edition AMG Diavel. The Multistrada now firmly established in the market place will show off its latest member to the family, the Pikes Peak Special Edition in celebration of its recent successes at this famous hill climb in Colorado and the Multistrada is also now available in a new Titanium colour new for 2012.

The Streetfighter range sees the introduction of the new 848 model with new 848 Testastretta 11° providing user-friendliness with a smooth and flexible power delivery. The Streetfighter 848 also has enhanced geometry for the chassis that provides confidence-inspiring agility, revised ergonomics and Ducati Traction Control.

The Hypermotard range remains largely unchanged, although the SP version now includes a new Corse Edition with full red, white and black Ducati Corse official colours. The iconic Monster range remains unchanged and all models will be on display on the Ducati stand.

However it is the 1199 Panigale that will grab all the headlines with its new innovative Superquadro engine, so called because of its massively over-square bore and stroke ratio, has increased power to an absolute production twin-cylinder milestone of 195hp and torque to 98.1 lb-ft (13.5kgm) with user-friendly Riding Modes.
