Video: Ducati 899 Panigale first ride

Two years after the launch of the 1199 Panigale, Ducati has done the inevitable, replacing the ageing 848 with an 899 Panigale. Producing a middleweight mirroring its flagship model is a trick Ducati has performed many times before. But can the smaller-capacity Panigale offer the same kicks as its big brother? brightcove.createExperiences();

Staff blog: Bad back stops play

I did my back in a couple of weeks ago so riding the Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Touring was put on hold while my life revolved around physiotherapy, 500mg Naproxen tablets twice a day, paracetamol every four hours, ice packs every two hours and then more physio. While it would be great to admit I did my back damage while ...

Staff Blog: Thundersport Rockingham

  I haven’t had much of a chance to do anything of note with my Hyperstrada over the past week. But it did treat me to a glorious ride cross-country to Donington last Wednesday, where I instruct at the Ron Haslam Race School. The early morning journey there and late evening ride back was perfect, with twisty, empty B-roads, sunshine ...

Staff Blog: Dirty Ducati

I’ve been away for over a week testing, but for all that time I’ve been thinking of my filthy Hyperstrada. Covered in thick dust, it looks like it’s spent months abandoned in the Sahara, but all that muck is from being parked-up at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend. Sleeping in the MCN van over the course of the ...

Staff Blog: Hyperstrada – 3588-miles in eight days.

  I’ve just got back from my 3588-mile riding holiday to France, Spain and Portugal. It seems weird just riding to work today and not grinding out hundreds of miles in the sunshine, on the wrong side of the road, like I’ve been doing for the past eight days. Although the roads down the west coast of France, across the ...

Staff blog: Hyperstrada on tour

I'm half way through a riding holiday with a couple of my mates. We've ridden down the west coast of France, along the top of Spain and now stopped half way down the Portuguese coast, in the resort of Figueira Da Foz. There doesn't seem to be anyone here in Portugal, from the towns to the motorways. It's like one ...
