*UPDATE: Ducati’s ‘Episode 4: This is Racing‘ has been moved to October 14th, 2022 @ at 10 am ET. Stay tuned!!*

In a surprising, short press release, Ducati has just told us that Episode 4 of the 2023 Ducati World Première will be moved to a time that’s still, as of today, pending for Team Red’s ranks.

“Ducati informs the press that Episode 4 of the Ducati World Première web series 2023 – scheduled for Friday, October 7 – has been postponed to a date to be determined,” states the press release. 

That’s all we’re given.

Episode Four – titled ‘This is Racing’ – rounds up the previous three episodes: Episode One, ‘The Unexpected,’ which featured a collaboration for a limited edition Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini (created next to a Huracán STO); Episode Two, ‘Mad for Fun,’ which showed off a track-happy, yet versatile Monster SP; and Episode Three, ‘Unlock Earth,’ which premiered the ultimate Multistrada V4 Rally.

Episode 1: ‘The Unexpected’ – 2 September 2022

Episode 2: ‘Ready for More?’ – 15 September 2022 

Episode 3: ‘Unlock Earth’ – 29 September 2022

With Episode 4 flaunting the title ‘This is Racing,’ we can only imagine that the bike affected is some kind of SuperSport, SuperLeggera, or Panigale. Considering 2022’s World Première Episode 9 featured an updated Panigale, we’re expecting updates / changes in the former two camps. 

Stay tuned via our newsletter, where we will be sure to update you on anything we hear from Ducati regarding Episode 4; in the meantime, drop a comment below letting us know what you think, and as always – stay safe on the twisties.
