Ducati’s getting ready to start the next iteration of their world-famous World Première – and judging by the title of the last episode, we could be getting a brand new machine for Team Red’s ranks, just in time for this year’s EICMA

A report from Motorcycle.com shows some sleuthing already in the works; Ducati has hinted at the machine sitting pretty for their last episode, saying ‘it’s a model that was previewed for visitors at World Ducati Week.’

If you recall, this year’s WDW was a record-breaking event, with over ‘80,000 attendees, with representations from over 83 countries and over 6 million hits from Ducatisti on social media.’

Amidst all the festivities and fireworks was slipped a little, concealed corner known only as ‘the Secret Chamber / the Secret Room.’

In this room lay new, unseen prototypes and production-ready models dormant for loyal Ducatisti to behold.

This year, those lucky few reported a glimpse of a scrambler soon to be debuted at EICMA – and that’s not all. 

Motorcycle.com has also taken a gander at vehicle certification documents in Australia, which show a new Monster SP on the way; it makes sense, then, that this monster would also be shown at the Première.

To add to this, a new Ducati Panigale V4 R has surfaced on Ducati’s online owner manual database, showing yet another model possible to be debuted.

With the World Première running from September 2nd to November 7th, we’ve got less than a month to the 2023 startling line.

Stay tuned for updates (as there’s always something that’s leaked prior to the big date), and as ever – stay safe on the twisties.
