With an engine note as moving as an opera by Verdi, and curves as beguiling as Sophia Loren’s, the legendary Ducati 750 Super Sport is an all-time favourite among Ducatisti..

Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

Classic. The very definition  of Ducati Iconic.  But more like twice the price + they mention for real ones with correct numbers in good condition....

Five minutes with… Livio Lodi, Ducati’s Museum Director

Five minutes with… Livio Lodi, Ducati’s Museum Director | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Taking over from Marco Montemaggi as the Curator of the Ducati Museum in December 2001, Olivio Lodi considers himself more of an archaeologist than a Director…“A museum director can be someone who just takes care of a structure, an archaeologist is more interesting. We didn’t have an archive prior to the creation of the museum in 1998 so as we have created the museum we have started to collect, slowly and patiently, small parts of large parts of history. Everyone knows the history of Ducati, there are lots of books about us, but nobody knows the real story about the people behind them – this is the real story of what I am collecting....”

Iannone: I share the merit with Ducati

Iannone: I share the merit with Ducati | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

The Austin GP was definitely the race of the Honda domain but we shouldn’t forget it was also the race of the “return” of Ducati. Not only for the podium of Dovizioso, but also for the performance of Andrea Iannone third for most of the race before becoming a victim, like many others, of a severe wear of the front tire. “Texas was just a confirmation: in Qatar also I could have done well". The Pramac rider said recalling the first race of the season ended early with crash.

Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

It's been fun to watch Andrea Iannone move closer to the lofty expectations he arrived with last season (both what he expected, and what was expected of him)

2014 Ducati Diavel First Ride

2014 Ducati Diavel First Ride | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it
Ducati went back to work on its Diavel for 2014 and made it better. Much better.


Alan Cathcart | European Editor

Cathcart has ridden practically every road racer and streetbike ever built and written about them in Cycle News. They don’t call him Sir Alan for nothing.


Ducati’s introduction of the Diavel powercruiser back in 2011 represented a visit to the Dark Side in the eyes of many dedicated ducatisti, who professed to scorn the Italian manufacturer’s attempt (as they saw it) to cash in on the global cruiser cult. That was until they rode it – at which point they realized that this is a completely new take on real world road riding - a combination of Superbike performance and custom cool that’s totally irrational, and gloriously addictive.


For the rest click HERE:  http://www.cyclenews.com/325/24292/Racing-Article/2014-Ducati-Diavel-First-Ride.aspx



Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

Good review. I can remember a time when the ONLY way you could decide on if you wanted a new Ducati model was based on Alan Cathcart's opinion. No way to see it in person. No way to test ride it. Just Sir Al, the mailman and your checkbook...

Cal Crutchlow Questionable For Argentine Grand Prix

Cal Crutchlow Questionable For Argentine Grand Prix | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it
The Brits hand injury could hold him back from next weekends MotoGP round in Argentina.


Ducati’s Cal Crutchlow is questionable for the upcoming Argentine MotoGP next weekend due to a hand injury suffered in a crash during the Grand Prix of the Americas.

Crutchlow had issues with his rear tire last weekend at the Circuit of The Americas and had to pit in around nine laps into the race to change out the tire. For Crutchlow, it went from bad to worse when he crashed on the new tire and his leg got caught in the wheel, making for a very ugly, hard crash.
