    Found this info on the Motorcyclelive website about the Ducati stand.


    Ducati UK will be attending this year’s Motorcycle Live with the latest new models from the Ducati range.

    Ducati this year revealed their 2020 range early, previewing at the end of October and unveiling some incredible new models and updates. The new Ducati Streetfighter was the headline news at the Premiere in Rimini, with its stunning looks and even more stunning performance.

    The foundation of the Steetfighter V4 is a Panigale V4 stripped of its fairings and equipped with high, wide handlebars. Weighing 178 kg, it is powered by a 1103 cc Desmosedici Stradale engine, its 208 hp kept under control by biplane aerofoils and a latest-generation electronics package. An incredible, outrageous naked Ducati with and eye-catching looks and performance and yet with roadside manners.

    The most popular superbike on the market, the Panigale V4, receives updates with content taken from the V4R. The Panigale V4 is now equipped with the aero pack, a new Front Frame, for better front-end ‘feel’ at extreme lean angles and new electronics, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2  and Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2.

    The Panigale family includes the introduction of the new Panigale V2. The twin-cylinder Panigale has a completely new look, increased maximum power of 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 104 Nm at 9,000 rpm (Euro 5 compliant).Other key Panigale V2 features include the single-sided swingarm and an exhaust with extremely compact under-engine silencer and single-side tail pipe.

    New to the Multistrada range is the 1260 S Grand Tour, a special version of the 1260 S designed for those who want to eat up the miles without giving up on comfort.

    This year’s Ducati stand will for the first time have a dedicated area highlighting Ducati’s racing success in British Superbikes this year. The racing area will feature Ducati’s two successful BSB teams, Oxford Racing Ducati and Be Wiser Ducati with their race bike on display in virtual garages. Adjacent to this there will be a celebration of 10 years of the Ducati TriOptions Cup, with the 2019 championship winning bike on display.

    Also celebrating its anniversary is the legendary and iconic 916. It is 25 years since the bike was unveiled to a stunned public and to commemorate this historic event, Ducati will have an exhibition of 916, 996 and 998 models.  The 916 exhibition will also include the Panigale V4 25° Anniversario 916.


    I've always loved the looks of the 916, but I remember finally sitting on one (funnily enough at the NEC bike show in the year dot) and it was just so uncomfortable... it ruined the dream for me  :006:

    I can't decide whether to go to this event this year. I went for the first time last year with a mate and really enjoyed it but i'm not particularly in the market for a new bike or kit and he is unavailable this year so i'm not sure it's worth the expense and hassle of getting there.
    It's always nice to sit on some bikes and dream of summer returning  though.

    I definitely won't be as I'm back to work on the 16th and flying out to St. John's New  Brunswick. Still by the time I get home it will be March and winter will hopefully have passed.

    Off to the show tomorrow... although I have heard rumours the lovely Ducati girls are not on the Ducati stand this year  :003:

    BTW - Highlights from the show were shown on Eurosport 2 earlier this week... but the Ducati stand didn't even get a mention.
