Ducati North America Sold Over 12,000 Motorcycles In 2015, Breaking Previous Record
Feb 05, 2016 - 6:07 PM - by Motorcycle.com

Quote:
Ducati North America had a record sales year in 2015, selling 12,132 total motorcycles in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. This represents a 14.1% increase over the year prior.

All three countries reached historical sales levels, with the United States at 9,674 units sold (up +10%) and northern neighbor Canada at 1,458 bikes (up +12%). Mexico, thanks to the addition of new exclusive Ducati dealers, experienced significant increases, with 1,003 motorcycles sold Ė a growth rate of more than 85%.

In 2015, the top models sold by the Bologna-based manufacturer in North America have been the new Scrambler line of urban naked bikes, the 148 horsepower 899 Panigale sport bike and the Monster 821.

'Our success in North America is the result of the hard work of the entire Ducati organization and our network of dedicated dealers,' Dominique Cheraki, outgoing CEO of Ducati North America said in a press release. 'I am proud of what we have collectively achieved during the past five years of my tenure and Iím enthusiastic of what the future holds for the brand.'

According to the Ducati press release, future growth is strongly anticipated in 2016 since more than 45% of Ducatiís model line-up will be all-new offerings. Two new motorcycles in particular, the XDiavel and the Multistrada 1200 Enduro, offer the potential to tap rider segments that were left untouched by any Ducati product in the past.

Riders will have the opportunity to try the XDiavel for themselves during Ducatiís 'XDiavel Experience Tour,' which will visit more than 15 cruiser hot spots, starting with Phoenix on<span class="aBn">February 20
, through Daytona Bike Week and beyond. Ducati dealers will have XDiavel models available for sale in their showrooms early this Spring.

The Multistrada 1200 Enduro will arrive at Ducati dealers in April and boasts a 19-inch front wheel and 7.9-gallon gas tank for long distance riding. The motorcycle is also available with various off-road accessories as well as knobby tires and other features designed for the avid dual-sport rider.</span>

Ducati Panigale Superleggera Quick-Ride Review + Video
Feb 04, 2016 - 12:57 PM - by Motorcycle.com

Quote:
Ducatiís Panigale is one of the most desirable sportbikes on the road today. Even the smallest Panigale, the new 959, is sexy and fast, and thereís plenty more where that comes from in the forms of the monstrously powered 1299 and wickedly exotic 1199R. But what do you do when those levels of sexy and fast and exotic just ainít enough anymore?

Thereís just one step up to make and itís a steep one. Presenting the Panigale Superleggera, a moto moon shot that stretches the bounds of whatís possible from a production sportbike. Its name is Italian for super light, and Ducati has employed every possible weight-saving tactic to create a 1200cc motorcycle claimed to scale in at a barely believable 342 pounds dry. Combined with a hot-rodded version of the already-exotic 1199R engine, the Superleggera has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any street-legal motorcycle.

As noted in the article linked above, lightweight components Ė especially structural ones Ė always cost more than heavier ones. From iron to steel to aluminum to magnesium and titanium and carbon fiber, lighter stuff simply costs more. In the case of the Superleggera, the cost is a rather exorbitant $65,000 if you can find one. Just 500 Superleggeras were built, and we understand thereís less than a handful remaining at North American dealers.
