So Ducati just unveiled their 2013 bikes too...

Ducati just released thier line,

Watercooled Hypermotard



1199R



20th anniversary Monster



This sick looking 848 evo corse



and a new model, the hyperstrada, which appears to be a hypertard setup for adventure touring.



Plus some new models of the Multistrada and Diaval, but really other than the hypertard, hyperstrada and what i am assuming will be $40k 1199r, nothing too exciting.

edit: ummm, and there's this cool looking bike with a douche bag back story

Quote:
The Diesel Style Team, under the guidance of Diesel founder Renzo Rosso, together with Ducati's Design Centre, have brought a new ‘urban military chic' interpretation to the iconic naked motorcycle. Creative, innovative, fun, irreverent, sexy and brave are the words to best describe the new Monster Diesel.The collaboration between Diesel's founder Renzo Rosso and the Ducati Design Center gives birth to the numbered Monster Diesel version (technically based on the 1100 EVO ).

i was at the ducati dealer on saturday ... if i recall i saw the 848 and panigale on the showroom floor.

i didn't even bother to check if they were 2013. the ducati dealership also is a triumph dealership as well and damn that daytona is hot. if i weren't such a honda dork, i would probably buy one as my next bike.

My local Duc Dealer had one of those Diesel Monsters and It looked amazing in person! I am really interested in that hyper strada!

Yes it sure is. I've never been a big fan of ducati, but I've always had a soft spot for the evo... or a hard spot... however you want to look at it.

Ducati has always had beautiful bikes, just out of the price range for most, but that gap is closing now that 600ss bikes are pushing 12,000.

My favourite is the anniversary colors Monster. It just looks amazing in those old colors.

The water cooled Hypermotard I don't like, looks-wise, as much as the current version, but it sure sounds like a blast.

In general, Ducati has drifted from my particular taste, but I'd say they are still making beautiful bikes.

This.

I've had my eye on the evo for a few years now, and I WILL have one.. Just not until I have a garage to keep her in, and I've got a shit ton of debt paid off, and I can pay for it in full, and I can afford to track it every other weekend... Yeah, it's going to be a few years, but goddamn I want one.

The HyperStrada looks great. The HyperMotard is already at the top of my list if I needed to get a new bike. A testride will be in order.
