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.
Here’s the order of the series, according to Ducati’s website:
Episode 1: ‘The Unexpected’ – 2 September 2022
Episode 2: ‘Ready for More?’ – 15 September 2022
Episode 3: ‘Unlock Earth’ – 29 September 2022
Episode 4: ‘This is Racing’ – 7 October 2022
Episode 5: ‘Push Forward’ – 20 October 2022
Episode 6: ‘Dare to be Bold’ – 28 October 2022
Episode 7: ‘Next Gen Freedom’ – 7 November 2022
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.
