As a guest rider for the Falkner Livingston Racing Ducati Team, Canet survives what he calls one of the most harrowing rides of his life.
Ernesto Marinelli hails Ducati's first double WSBK podium since 2012 as the 1199 Panigale proves itself as an increasingly competitive package.
Ernesto Marinelli has described Ducati's first double podium in almost two years as a 'gift to the Ducatisti who never stopped believing' as the Italian firm steadily works its way back to prominence.
The most successful manufacturer in WSBK history, the introduction of the new 1199 Panigale – which replaced the ultra-successful 1098/1198 machine – from the start of 2013 has warranted a long and frustrating development process.

This little vintage Ducati will win your heart
About ten years ago I went on a buying spree, and no shopping malls were involved. At that time a lot of old Ducati memorabilia, electronics, early motorcycles and Cucciolos (the first Ducati “motorcycle” was actually a bicycle with a clip on motor, the design sourced from Siata, an Italian car company). It was pretty clear that the pipeline for these items was seriously limited, so whenever we came across an item of interest we bought it, or made certain someone like minded (by which I mean, willing to show it to the public on occasion) had a chance to....

No clue if it's accurate but I would imagine that CC out earning Dovi is a frosty subject...
The new version of one of the most popular Ducati ever (since the spring of 1968 to that of 1976 were built about 50,000 Scrambler, displacement 250, 350 and 450 cc), on several occasions have come out drawings and photos of strange prototypes that turned inside and outside of the factory in Bologna, motorcycle masked more or less heavily ( click here for the gallery ). Then one morning, in the yard of the factory in Borgo Panigale Ducati workers have found a yellow container that contained a motorcycle , Scrambler: just to give it a look before everyone else, including journalists. So in fact no one, including the general public has yet to see the new Scrambler in the final version. But now, we Motorcycling we can show you some exclusive new images exclusively of the bike almost ready for production (marketed in 2015), just missing the mark on the tank badge . The line is inspired decidedly that of the progenitor and the very wide handlebars promises a relaxed and comfortable driving. Note the saddle the old "logo" of the Bologna factory, to return the original image.Domina yellow (color of the beloved old 450), the wings are reduced to a minimum, the saddle is abundant and promised a good comfort even in two, the discharge is low and short and the lighthouse is round, but with a ring of LEDs around the central halogen bulb. The instrumentation is single element, but fully digital, so it is assumed complete. A modern twist is given by the number plate flush with the rear wheel.

They say: “The essential Monster”
