Model year 2018 has many noticeable new models from Ducati. The very exciting 1299 Panigale R Final Edition is the celebration of the twin cylinder engine that enjoyed success in the World Superbike Championship from Marco Lucchinelli’s famous first win in 1988 on the 851 to 2017 with Ducati World Superbike riders Marco Melandri and Chaz Davies.
Most exciting for model year 2018 is the all-new Ducati Panigale V4. This model marks a new and important chapter in Ducati's history, a "symphony" of performance and emotions that's 100% Italian. Panigale V4 is the first mass-produced Ducati motorcycle to be equipped with a 4-cylinder engine, closely derived from the Desmosedici of the MotoGP. The Panigale V4 replaces the iconic 1299 at the top of the Ducati supersport range, doing so by enhancing performance and ridability so that riders of all skill levels can enjoy boundless fun and excitement. The Panigale V4 has been developed in close collaboration with Ducati Corse, drawing directly on know-how and technology from the racing world to provide a road bike that is the closest thing possible to its MotoGP counterpart.
The heartbeat of the new Ducati SuperSport pumps traditional sport performance throughout the new machine. Aesthetically, the bike shares many characteristics of its sporting cousin, including a single-sided swingarm and compact lateral silencer with two overlapping exits which allows the rear wheel to be seen unhindered by the exhaust system. Where this model really hits its stride is the clever electronics featured through the model which enhance everyday road riding including a LCD dash display unit, ABS brakes as well as Ducati Traction Control. This combination of style and performance mixed with the versatility and comfort of an everyday road touring model create the perfect bike for everyday road riding and commuting.
Entering the cruiser world in classic Ducati fashion, the xDiavel is low speed excitement: relaxed low-speed riding, typical of the cruiser, combined with the excitement and the adrenaline of sports riding that characterise every Ducati. The xDiavel is a bike that combines absolute style with cutting-edge technology; A bike that projects the concept of Cruiser into modern times, towards the future, a true "Technocruiser".
The dedicated Ducati Scrambler range continues to capture the imagination and creative side of Motorcyclists globally, with the range now featuring many prominent models including the Icon, Classic, Full Throttle, Café Racer, Desert Sled and Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMS) Sixty2 model.
