Here’s a look at the most recent additions to the 2013 lineup, according to Ducati:
2013 DUCATI DIAVEL
The Ducati Diavel was first introduced to an excited public at the 2010 Milan International Motorcycle Show and has since amazed motorcyclists the world over, collecting awards along the way to become one of Ducati’s most desired models.
The innovative machine combines decades of twin-cylinder heritage and Italian style and now completes an exciting 2013 lineup with the Diavel Strada, a brand new model that blends power cruiser performance with touring comfort and functionality. It stands alongside the Diavel Carbon, now exclusively in carbon red and the standard Diavel in three stunning new color versions: The Diavel Dark in matte black with black-finished componentry and two “street-sport” schemes that introduce metallic blue or Ducati red with stylish white stripes, white wheels and special defining features.
Custom shop beauty, state-of-the-art technology, innovative design and extraordinary riding pleasure are masterfully blended into the Diavel, a motorcycle that has now set a new benchmark in the sport cruiser segment, just reward for the innovative designers and engineers that created it.
Built to have a commanding presence, though lightweight and agile like all Ducatis, the Diavel takes the man-motorcycle relationship to the next level in absolute comfort. For connoisseurs of technology, ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes deliver a confidence-inspiring sophistication while stunning looks, 162hp and 205kg (452lb) of authentic Ducati performance drives a comfortable sport lifestyle that could only be dreamt of before.
2013 DUCATI SUPERBIKE
The 2013 Ducati Superbike family line-up is now completed with the highly anticipated arrival of the 1199 Panigale R, the absolute flagship of the range and the machine specially developed with enhanced technical specification by Ducati Corse for World Superbike homologation.
The exciting “R” model stands alongside the 1199 Panigale and 1199 Panigale S in the new-for-2013 arctic white color scheme and signature Ducati red, in addition to the exclusive 1199 Panigale S Tricolore. All 2013 1199 models are updated with latest generation engine management mapping and Ride-by-Wire calibration, further enhancing the Ducati Superbike riding experience.
The highly successful 848EVO is available in the traditional colors of Ducati red with red frame and black wheels, dark stealth with racing black frame and black wheels and arctic white with red frame and red wheels, while the exclusive 848EVO Corse Special Edition, with a new, lightweight, aluminum fuel tank, gets dressed in the stunning new Ducati Corse Test Team livery of matte black and matte grey.
2013 DUCATI HYPERMOTARD
Ducati introduce the next generation of the Hypermotard family, taking the innovation and excitement of the original concept and enhancing it even further with three incredible new models: The thrilling Hypermotard, Hypermotard SP and the introduction of a stylish and accessible mid-range tourer with everyday practicality — The Hyperstrada. The new range combines Ducati's latest technologies with outstanding Italian design and engineering to write the latest chapter in the Hypermotard story.
The Hypermotard and Hypermotard SP deliver a thrilling and fun filled experience, whether on the daily commute or ripping-up the track asphalt, while the Hyperstrada awaits long distance adventure, enabling practical, everyday motorcycling in absolute Ducati style.
Brand new from the ground up, the models introduce the new 110hp Ducati 821cc Testastretta 11° engine in a new Trellis frame equipped with top-of-the range chassis components. The Hypermotard and Hypermotard SP use sharp and sleek styling to maintain that essential Supermotard look, while the Hyperstrada is factory-accessorized with full touring-oriented specification. Combine these two worlds of performance with excellent ergonomics and the Ducati Safety Pack of latest generation 3-level ABS, 8-level Ducati Traction Control and integrated Riding Modes, and the new range takes on a relevance that makes perfect sense in modern motorcycling.
High ground-clearance combined with a thin waistline and commanding riding positions gives the rider an instant Supermotard feeling, with the added luxury of latest street bike comfort and component quality.
While the Hyperstrada is ideal for dominating the every-day urban or long distance commute, the Hypermotard and track-ready Hypermotard SP are intended for the extreme rider who demands the very highest performance.
