Final week, Ducati introduced it will as soon as once more current its new product bulletins in a collection of on-line displays. Similar to in 2020 and 2021, the Ducati World Première 2023 collection will happen over a number of episodes, with every half that includes a unique product line.
For 2023, the collection will span seven episodes, beginning Sept. 2, forward of the MotoGP spherical in San Marino, and working till Nov. 7, simply forward of EICMA. As has grow to be customized, Ducati has given every episode a cryptic title providing a clue to the presentation’s matter. The episodes are:
- Sept. 2, 2022: Ducati World Première – Episode 1 | The Surprising
- Sept. 15, 2022: Ducati World Première – Episode 2 | Prepared for Extra?
- Sept. 29, 2022: Ducati World Première – Episode 3 | Unlock Earth
- Oct. 7, 2022: Ducati World Première – Episode 4 | That is Racing
- Oct. 20, 2022: Ducati World Première – Episode 5 | Push Ahead
- Oct. 28, 2022: Ducati World Première – Episode 6 | Dare to be Daring
- Nov. 7, 2022: Ducati World Première – Episode 7 | Subsequent Gen Freedom
Aside from the episode titles, Ducati has provided yet one more clue: the ultimate episode shall be a mannequin that was previewed for guests at World Ducati Week. Although Ducati has managed to forestall any photographs of the WDW preview from going public, a report from Moto.it confirms the brand new mannequin is the next-generation Ducati Scrambler.
As for the remaining, we did slightly digging and uncovered some clues about what to anticipate, together with a brand new Panigale V4 R and a Ducati Monster SP.
Ducati’s racing homologated mannequin, the Panigale V4 R, is an apparent match for Episode 4. Launched in 2019, the Panigale V4 R is powered by a 998cc engine, permitting it to compete in Superbike racing lessons. With the 1103cc Panigale V4 and V4 S getting up to date final yr, it appears apparent that the V4 R is due for its personal replace.
The Monster was launched in 2021, introducing a brand new chapter within the mannequin’s legacy with a 937cc liquid-cooled V-Twin engine and an aluminum alloy body changing the normal metal trellis. Because of automobile certification paperwork in Australia, Motorbike.com can affirm that the Monster and Monster+ shall be joined by a brand new Monster SP.
Sadly, the Australian certification doesn’t present any additional data past the title and that it’s going to possible use an identical 937cc engine because the non-SP fashions. From what Ducati gave the SP variations of the Streetfighter V4 and Panigale V4, we will assume the Monster SP will obtain a lot of upgrades equivalent to light-weight carbon rims and upgraded brakes. A dry clutch might enchantment to Monster traditionalists, and we will in all probability anticipate a lot of equipment like CNC-machined footpegs, lithium-ion battery or a carbon fiber fender.
With the brand new Scrambler, the Monster SP, and the Panigale V4 R, that’s three of the seven World Premières accounted for. One episode may be reserved for Ducati’s burgeoning e-bikes, which is why Ducati’s announcement is cautious to say “new merchandise” and never “new bikes”.
Talking of electrics, Ducati revealed particulars about its V21L MotoE racer in June, with MO‘s very personal Troy Siahaan getting an unique up-close look. We would get one other look in Episode 1, which so occurs to be scheduled for Sept. 2 – simply earlier than the ultimate spherical of the 2022 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, and the final earlier than Ducati replaces Energica as the only real provider for the category. Whereas we imagine a manufacturing electrical Ducati motorbike should still be slightly methods off, a preview would positively match the Episode 1 title of “The Surprising.”
In quest of extra clues, we perused Ducati’s on-line proprietor’s guide database and found a lot of 2023 manuals have already been uploaded. We pored by each 2023 guide obtainable, and tracked them towards the 2022 manuals to see which fashions are prone to return unchanged.
Most of Ducati’s 2022 fashions are returning, with the manuals indicating no important modifications. Quite a lot of these had been up to date simply final yr, in order that comes as no shock. There have been, nevertheless, a number of fashions that don’t have 2023 manuals as of but. These embrace the Panigale V4 R and 803cc Scramblers, which helps our principle that they’re shall be receiving updates.
Curiously, the Diavel and Streetfighter V4 households do not need but 2023 fashions added to Ducati’s website. The Streetfigther V4 SP was launched final yr, however the common V4 and V4 S fashions have been unchanged since their introduction in 2020, making them prime candidates to be a part of Ducati’s 2023 World Premières.
The Diavel 1260 household has additionally been comparatively static for a number of years, with the final notable addition being the Lamboghini version mannequin in 2021. An up to date Diavel wouldn’t be an enormous shock. It’s additionally price noting that Lamborghini celebrates its sixtieth anniversary in 2023. A brand new Ducati 1260 Lamborghini makes loads of sense for the Italian carmaker’s diamond anniversary.
The Multistrada V4 and V2 fashions all have 2023 manuals, however what concerning the Multistrada 950 S Spoked Wheel? Regardless of the introduction of the V2 mannequin final yr, Ducati continued to supply the wire-spoke model of the Multistrada 950. And whereas you will get one geared up with wire-spoke wheels from Ducati’s accent catalog, a full-on adventure-ready Multistrada V2 could be a pleasant addition.
To recap, right here’s what we imagine Ducati will reveal as a part of its World Première 2023 collection:
- Subsequent Era Scrambler
- Panigale V4 R
- Monster SP
- V21L/Manufacturing electrical mannequin
- Multistrada V2 Spoked Wheel
In fact, there’s a good probability Ducati has one thing deliberate that we haven’t accounted for. We’re assured that the majority of our predictions above shall be a part of the Ducati World Première 2023 internet collection, however we’d additionally welcome a shock or two.
