Liam Marsden, 14 February 2012 12:36

Troy Bayliss may be retired but he's still pretty handy on a bike, as these pictures show. Bayliss is pictured here at the YAS Marina circuit, Abu Dhabi having fun on the all-new Ducati 1199 Panigale, with the electronics turned off. MCN rode the Panigale at the launch last week - to read the full eight-page test pick up a copy ...

Ducati Panigale first ride: 'Like no Ducati I've ridden'

Michael Neeves, 10 February 2012 17:45

UPDATE, 11 Feb, 15:10"We're midway through our day riding the new Panigale and it continues to impress. The 195bhp Superquadro engine is hugely impressive with just the right amount of usable torque to fly out of the corners and monster power for devouring the straights. "Everything from the suspension, engine braking, traction control, ABS and god knows what else is ...

Staff Bikes: Ducati Multistrada - What a year!

Marc Potter, 03 February 2012 11:55

That’s it. Time to send my Multistrada 1200S back. And I’ve never been sadder to see a bike go. It fits into my life perfectly and that’s saying something as I’ve owned, run and tested just about every single bike built in the last 17 years. Even after running two Multistrada 1200s (the first one was written off by a ...

Neevesy’s blog – Ducati Multistrada in Oz

Michael Neeves, 13 January 2012 09:18

Ducati’s Multistrada 1200 is MCN’s current king of the all-rounders. Like it says on the tin, it will do-anything and go-anywhere. Its superbike engine delivers a monstrous amount of power, it handles superbly and it’s an epic mile-muncher. It’ll even handle a bit of off-road, if you’re mad enough. I’ve ridden a fair few and if I’m honest, I’d normally ...

Video: Loon stunt riding a Ducati Diavel

Andy Downes, 04 January 2012 17:05

Brilliantly talented German stunt rider Micha Threin has become the first in the world to take the 162bhp Ducati Diavel sports cruiser into the world of stunt riding. While the Diavel has bags of power and is reasonably lightweight when compared to other cruisers the wheelbase alone is enough to make it seem wildly inappropriate for this sort of riding. ...

Video: Ducati 1199 Panigale CAD engine assembly

MCN, 04 January 2012 14:37

Ducati 1199 Panigale - A new way of building a superbike

MCN, 29 December 2011 12:00

The targets laid down for the 1199 Panigale were so strict, so binding and so difficult to achieve that nothing less than a complete rethink was going to be enough. That maent ditching Ducati's tradition of a steel trellis frame and embracing something completely new. Monocoque chassis design The biggest break with Ducati tradition is the all-new aluminium monocoque chassis ...

American Randy Martin has built the world’s first titanium-framed Ducati Monster S4RS and says his custom-made frame is half the weight of the original – but it does cost around £4000! Martin said: "The bike is truly a Monster now. I call it ‘Mostro Della Strada’; Monster of the Road." Martin, who runs his own fabrication shop in Kansas, took ...

Roland Sands 'Dirty Desmo': des-irable or des-ecration?

Guy Procter, 22 November 2011 09:38

Roland Sands recently took the brave/insane decision to accept a commission to streetfighter a Desmsedici RR. Or dirt tracker-it anyway, as is their wont where he lives. There's no doubting the size of the cahunas required to take the angle-grider to a MotoGP rep, and equally to ride the 200bhp mutant. But was it the right thing to do? Is ...
