The International Motorcycle Shows tour of the US is now in full swing.
After the mid-November debut in Long Beach, Ca, the tour is now in New York City (November 30th – December 2nd, Jacob K. Javits Center.) There are five more cities on the itinerary after that (I’ve put the complete calendar at the bottom of this story.)
Ducati are one of the manufacturers who are eager to have the American market get a look at their new machines. So here are some of the bikes you’ll be able to see if you go to one of the shows.
At the front of the line is the new Ducati Panigale V4 R, getting its East Coast debut. This is the 221 horsepower, 363 pound rocket we wrote about here. It sits alone at the top of the Ducati superbike heap.
Also on display will be the updated Multistrada 1260 Enduro, with the new variable valve timing engine and a seriously upgraded suite of rider aids.
All four Scrambler models will be there, too. They’re the Icon, Desert Sled, Café Racer and Full Throttle, the “affordable” Ducatis that are priced from $9,395 to $11,995.
As a bonus — maybe? — fans of the movie Venom will get a gander at the Scrambler that Tom Hardy rode.
Other Ducatis getting showcased will be the Diavel 1260, the Hypermotard 950 (and the SP) and the XDiavel.
And finally, as promised, here’s the schedule for the rest of the tour.
