Ducati has been one of the biggest motorcycle brands to be keen on showcasing its new motorcycle releases on a grand stage. Unfortunately this year, EICMA has been canceled and motorcycle enthusiasts would have to settle witnessing launches through their screens. Ducati was quick to adapt to this way of showcasing their new motorcycle releases and stepped up their game in the digital space. As the motorcycle season comes to an end on the other side of the globe, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer turns into a series of web-events to announce its new model releases.
The online event starts on November 4 and will run every Wednesday until December 2 revealing new models each week. Ducati has already successfully teased us with its forthcoming Multistrada V4 and revealed its all-new Desmo-less engine for the past several weeks. The new motorcycle launches will be running on a special page on the Ducati website which will coincide across all its social media channels.
Ducati has been tight-lipped about what would be unraveling in the next coming weeks of the series. Yet, online publications have been making their own predictions as to what we can expect. First and foremost is the new Ducati Monster 821. Patent sketches have already leaked online last September and it was apparent that the new 2021 model would be losing its signature trellis frame as part of its new update. The Monster’s exposed frame has always been part of its design character since the inception of the model. Yet, for 2021, the Italian motorcycle maker decided to switch to a more conventional alloy frame for the new model.
Talks have also been going around about the new Diavel being unveiled. the Diavel-Lamborghini collaboration will be running on an updated Euro 5 compliant engine for the model range. We can also expect updates on how far they’ve reached with the work done on the Scrambler Desert X and Scrambler Motard concepts that were displayed in the 2019 EICMA show. While it is highly unlikely that these models would be in its production stages, it would still be interesting to see how far they’ve evolved.
