Ducati unveiled its 2016 line-up of motorcycles a day prior to the EICMA (Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo Motociclo e Accessori) which is better known as the Milan Motorcycle Show in Italy.  For 2016, Ducati has revealed nine new bikes. Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali, three-time WorldSBK Champion Troy Bayliss, Ducati MotoGP riders Andrea Iannone and Andrea Dovizioso, and Ducati WorldSBK rider Davide Giugliano unveiled nine new bikes to the world’s press yesterday  which included two new Scramblers, the Hypermotard 939, 939SP and Hyperstrada 939 family, a new Panigale 959, the Multistrada 1200 Pikes Peak and 1200 Enduro, and the much-awaited  XDiavel.

The Ducati presentation, ‘”More than Red: Black, Wild and Pop,” propelled a message of expansion. “Black like the XDiavel, a true cruiser; wild like the Multistrada 1200 Enduro, a bike to break down the barriers on any terrain; poplike the Ducati Scrambler Sixty2, an even lighter Ducati Scrambler with all the appeal of its smaller 400 cc engine.

“The Sixty2… draws its inspiration from youth street culture, skateboards, street food, pop music and, above all, the pop art that, back in 1962 (the year the very first Ducati Scrambler was launched), was taking the United States by storm,” Ducati said. The Sixty2 is powered by a 399cc, 41hp desmodromic air-cooled L-twin, with styling largely identical to its larger capacity siblings in the Scrambler range.

Ducati has also unveiled a sporty Scrambler variant- the Scrambler Flat Track Pro, with lowered handlebars and a high performance, and a Termignoni exhaust system in place.

The company also unveiled the long-awaited off-road Multistrada, labeled as the 1200 Enduro.  The new 1200 Enduro is a completely reworked maxi-enduro bike designed and builtprimarily for off-road use with 19 inch front and 17 inch rear spoked wheels, electronic semi-active Sachs suspension and a 30-liter fuel tank with a range that can exceed 450 km, Ducati said.  The new Multistrada also comes with a huge range of accessories designed exclusively for it.

Ducati has also taken wraps off the new Diavel, the XDiavel. The XDiavel features belt-drive and powered by a Testastretta DVT 1262cc, V-twin engine that makes 156hp at 9,500rpm and 129Nm maximum torque at 5000rpm. The engine is mated to 6-speed transmission with slipper clutch. The motorcycle weighs 220kg and comes with a wheelbase of 1615mm. Ducati claims the XDiavel brings together two worlds: the cruiser attributes of low speeds, relaxed riding and long journeys and the Ducati’s Italian style, engineering and performance. The company says the “X” represents the intersection of feet-forward cruiser styling and lower-speed fun with the performance the company is known for.
