EBR 1190RX vs. Ducati 1199 Panigale Superbike Comparison Test Review

EBR 1190RX vs. Ducati 1199 Panigale Superbike Comparison Test Review | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it
 Can America's new superbike go head to head with Europe's finest?  

Beautiful late-afternoon desert sun made everything glow as if the light were coming from within all the objects in view. Even the weeds looked good.

But we are convinced the Erik Buell Racing 1190RX and Ducati 1199 Panigale do actually produce their own light—and not just from bulbs and LEDs.

A long day spent riding two world-class superbikes on the amazing 1.8-mile East Loop at Pahrump, Nevada’s Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, will have that effect on you.

Crutchlow predicts 'tough circuit' for Ducati

Crutchlow predicts 'tough circuit' for Ducati | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

“I think it’s going to be a tough circuit for us” - Cal Crutchlow..  

Factory Ducati riders Cal Crutchlow and Andrea Dovizioso are predicting a tough MotoGP event at Catalunya this weekend. 

Dovizioso finished seventh for the team in Barcelona year, but was over 30 seconds from victory, and describes the bike as 'a little better' than last year. 

“I hope to do well at Montmelò with my Desmosedici GP14: it's a very strange track, with lots of fast corners and one long straight,” said Dovizioso. “Last year was quite bad, with ninth on the grid and seventh in the race, but it is one of my favourite tracks. The bike is a little bit better than last year, and we have to try and get the maximum as always.”

Spy Photos: Ducati Scrambler Caught Testing | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

It seems that no sooner did Ducati tease us its upcoming Scrambler model, than the Italian motorcycle maker was busy sound-testing its latest machine for road homologation.

Luckily, we have some spy photos from that event, and not only do we get to see what the near-finished form of the Ducati Scrambler looks like, but we also get a glimpse into what has to be the most ridiculous looking tests we have ever seen.

MotoGP gives Superbike a hand

MotoGP gives Superbike a hand | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

The Sepang circuit in Malaysia might be a brand-new venue for World Superbike, but for Aprilia and Ducati it’s as if they have already raced there. The two Italian teams have both got off to a good start, benefitting from the cross-over of experience and know-how provided by their respective MotoGP programmes, which include a fair amount of winter testing here. Let’s have a look at the areas where the transfer of data is decisive.
