Ducati Teases New Motocross Bike In Action, Hints Reveal Date


Back in October, Ducati surprised the world by revealing they had been working for two years on a prototype that will make its debut next season in the Italian Motocross Championship. Moreover, the multi-year project will see the creation of a complete range of off-road engines that will gradually become part of a family of knobby motorcycles for the brand.

Ducati’s secret weapon, expected to be an all-new single cylinder 450cc machine, has been successfully kept from prying eyes so far. To keep those awaiting its full unveiling on the edge of their seat, the brand has just launched an adrenaline-pumping teaser of the bike in action with two elite riders at the helm: eight-time Italian Champion Alessandro Lupino, and nine-time MX World Champion Antonio Cairoli.

But it looks like we will soon see the much-anticipated bike in all its glory. Ducati has hinted at a big unveiling on January 21-23 during the ‘Campioni in Pista’ event where the factory motocross team will be presented. Italian outlets are confirming the new bike will also break cover at the event.

Very little is known about the new machine but Ducati has revealed it will have “a very broad power delivery curve.” They go on to say this will be thanks to the use of the Desmodromic system, used on all their sports bikes, including MotoGP. “We can’t wait to see the Desmo in all its potential at work off the asphalt,” adds the Bologna-based manufacturer.
