Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso were back in action in Southern Spain today, completing a one-day private test as they continue to work with the 2017 Ducati GP17.
The duo headed straight to Spain from Qatar, where they took advantage of the first of their five private testing times. Yamaha blocked Lorenzo from running in the private test in November, so Ducati decided to keep the testing day in their pocket to use this week.
Last night’s Top Gear has been hailed as the ‘best episode in years’ by fans who flocked to Twitter to praise the BBC motoring show.
Matt LeBlanc and Chris Harris entertained with a race across Dubai in a Bugatti Chiron and a Ducati 1299 Superleggera motorcycle, while Rory Reid took on Harris and Sabine Schmitz in a giant game of Pac Man
If you are a regular reader of Asphalt & Rubber, or listen to the Two Enthusiasts Podcast, you have probably heard our musings on where the next big design trend is coming, and know our affinity for the rise of bikes from the 1980s and 1990s. So, with the being …
Indonesia has proved quite the powerhouse of late when it comes to custom bikes. With builders that are easily the best in the region and a beautifully original take on things, it's a country that attracts the interest of the region's bike fans over and above many of its contemporaries - Australia included. And the Indonesian crème de la crème would have to be Bandung's White Collar Bikes. Their main man, Ram Ram Januar, has the metalworking skills of sword maker. And here's very shiny, perfectly brushed proof. It's his latest build, an all-metal Ducati 795 racer.
In Terminator 2, Arnie sat astride a leather and chrome Harley that was the perfect fit for his T-800 role. But had the studio commissioned a machine for the liquid metal T-1000, even the most creative Hollywood minds couldn't have envisioned a bike like this. In a 2014 Ducati 1199 S Panigale, you get the same sort of technological leap over the old Fat Boy that the new T-1000 offered up. But where the stock red Ducati gets it all wrong visually, this insane alloy bodywork with its liquid-like flow would have scored a Skynet tick of approval. It's quite literally a killer custom, and it comes to us from the brilliant minds at France's Ortolani Customs.
Wrap Hypermotard 939 engine and Monster 1200 frame in Panigale-style bodywork. Stir until blended. Color to taste. Enjoy!
Motorcyclist reviews the SuperSport S
With the circus that is the World Superbike Championship wrapping up for the weekend at the Imola circuit, Ducati asked a few select journalists to stay behind. After a superlative-laden speech by Ducati supremo Claudio Domenicali, they hit the track on the brand new 2016 Ducati Panigale R. To say that they were gobsmacked would be a gross understatement. So it's probably for the best that a certain bunch of Swiss motorcycle fanatics weren't on hand. Undoubtedly they would be thinking that there was even more to be had from the bike. Fortunately, their absence did nothing to quell their creativity. And the result is arguably the world's fastest cafe racer; a unique collaboration of talents that has delivered a freakishly cool animal known simply as ‘The Blue Shark’.
Ducati released a new financing program this week, maybe you saw the announcement already. If you even bothered to read one of the copy/paste jobs on this announcement, you probably got three sentences into it, and then realized you just lost a minute or two of your life, which you …
