2 MINUTES READ

Five new models at the Ducati for 2018: Panigale V4, Scrambler 1100, Multistrada 1260, 959 Panigale Corse and Monster 821

The first 2018 bike to be revealed was the Ducati Scrambler 1100 which completes the range by adding a third engine to the ‘Land of Joy’. The Scrambler 1100 also comes in a Special version, which draws its inspiration from the custom world, and a Sport version. The Multistrada 1260 has been revamped with a new chassis set-up, more advanced electronics and a styling upgrade. Mounting the new Ducati 1262 cm3 Testastretta DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) engine, it also features a new chassis set-up, more modern electronics and a re-style that includes side ‘wings’ and sportier-looking wheels. The Ducati ‘multibike’ comes in several versions: the S version offers semi-active suspension and S D|Air – which maximises safety thanks to integration with an airbag-equipped jacket – while the Pikes Peak, the sportiest Multistrada version, features Öhlins mechanical suspension and forged aluminium wheels.
