Due to the current COVID-19 situation, Ducati has taken the 2021 model releases online in a series of weekly ‘Appointments’. Every Wednesday starting on November 4th, Ducati will show us the new line up.
Recent years has seen Ducati launch new bikes and revisions every year. These new bikes total large numbers, and we know that there are at least three new Ducati models for 2021.
The already ‘released’ Multistrada V4 is coming, as the new Granturismo engine has been talked about previously, and Ducati themselves have highly publicised the bikes new radar-guided cruise control.
Ducati has remained relatively quiet on new releases!
Other than this info, Ducati has released very little on any other new models. We would expect to see an update to the V4R, as it is two years since its release, and Ducati will want to maximise its advantage for the WSBK series.
Gossip also suggests a new water-cooled Monster, with a wealth of updates but the biggest is swapping the iconic trellis frame, in favour of a more modern aluminium box frame.
There has also been talk of a new Diavel updating it to meet Euro5 standards, and also talk of a limited edition Lamborghini version. Of course, both Ducati and Lamborghini are VAG owned so some mutual back-scratching could be on the cards.
Ducati also never turn down an opportunity to show off, so expect some fireworks from the Ducati Corse side, and also an update to the Scrambler side of the brand. The exciting DesertX shown as a concept at last years Milan EICMA show will no doubt feature.
With 5 episodes starting November 4th through to December 2nd, over all of Ducati’s social media pages we don’t have long to wait to find out!

- What is the best motorcycle camera?Motorcycle cameras can be split up into two types: fixed to the bike or fixed to the rider. Both of these systems carry pros and cons.
