This is an exciting new era for the Austrian manufacturer with its race-style dash and multi-function displays just some of the more obvious features.

Trevor has sent us exclusive photos from the Ascari Race Circuit in Ronda just minutes before heading out to try the motorcycle for the first time at the world launch.

Check back throughout the day for riding tips and much more exclusively from Ronda.
