Ducati Debuting Two New Bikes at World Ducati Week

If you’re attending this year’s World Ducati Week, then you’re in for a treat, as Ducati is set to debut two new bikes at the gathering in Misano.

Details are thin at the moment, but we do know that one of the machines will be a limited-edition motorcycle that celebrates Ducati’s 90th anniversary.

Meanwhile the other bike is a new model to the Ducati range, which will be shown in a “closed room” setting as a sort of sneak peak before its official launch.

The latter model is rumored heavily to be a large-displacement Scrambler model, with engine sizes of 1,000cc to 1,200cc being banded about.

Loyal Ducatisti will remember that the first modern Ducati Scrambler debuted at World Ducati Week in a similar fashion, so there’s some precedent for the line to continue the trend of special “preview” events.

A larger Scrambler model would certainly make sense for Ducati’s lineup, and the 1,200cc displacement would sooth our OCD very well in a lineup that already has 400cc and 800cc models.

Considering that Ducati still has that air-cooled v-twin engine from the Monster 1100 EVO available in its arsenal, good bets can be placed on a “Scrambler 1200” appearing.

As for the limited-edition model, it is anyone’s guess as to which model will be getting some extra parts and paint for Ducati’s 90th birthday.

We can make good arguments for seeing an XDiavel, Multistrada, or Panigale getting spruced up for World Ducati Week, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

Luckily, yours truly will be in attendance at this year’s event, so we can bring you all the details. Stay tuned.
