This Friday is looking to be full of videos and teasers, as Ducati has its own announcement that will be coming forthwith on Wednesday next week. Enlisting the help of three-time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss, the Australian motorcycle racer teased on YouTube today that he’s seen some interesting things at the Ducati factory, with promises of more to be revealed on the company’s video channel in the coming days. What those interesting things could be however is up for speculation.
Given the fact that Bayliss has been part of the Ducati Superbike 1199‘s development, it’s possible that the Italian company is now about to start teasing its flagship motorcycle in earnest, as it gears up for the 1199’s EICMA launch in November. Of course considering that Ducati enlisted Nicky Hayden to help hock the recently launched Ducati Streetfighter 848, it’s possible that Bayliss could be referring to another bike in development, namely the Streetfighter 1198 that our sources said would debut in September as well. Stay tuned, time will tell on this one.
