After many confirmations and refutations, the last news confirms the presence at EICMA 2009 of a Ducati superscooter. It will be introduced as a prototype but in reality the commercialization will surely have to happen soon.
I think the displacement will be 850cc (practically the motor of the 848). The final transmission will have a switch in order to pass from the completely automatic modality to that with traditional gearbox with lever to the handle-bar. Wheels from 16" and brakes "racing" for this DUCATI called in the factory SCOOTSTER (scooter/monster).
