Ducati to attend the Motor Bike Expo of Verona with the XDiavel and all-new draXter concept bike
- Motor Bike Expo, to be held in Verona from 22 to 24 January, offers the perfect showcase for the new Ducati cruiser world
- An original styling project by the Ducati Design Center to be exhibited
- This sports interpretation of the XDiavel world has been named the draXter
Borgo Panigale (Bologna, Italy), 22 January 2016 – At the coming Motor Bike Expo of Verona (22-24 January) Ducati will be exhibiting a further addition to its XDiavel cruiser world, the all-new draXter. This “concept bike” interprets the XDiavel world from a sports viewpoint. The project was developed by the Ducati Design Center's Advanced Design area, a section dedicated to exploring the future style and design concepts of Ducati motorcycles.Their ideas and sketches have allowed the Ducati prototype department to come up with the draXter, starting from a standard production XDiavel. The beating heart of the draXter is that of an extreme dragster with premium racing componentry. This is particularly evident, for example, in the suspension and brakes, taken directly from the Panigale Superbike. This styling exercise has accentuated the lines and proportions of the XDiavel making them more extreme than ever and turning the draXter into a unique, breath-taking "racer".The number 90 on the side of the Ducati draXter recalls the racing world, yet also pays homage to Ducati's 90th anniversary, being celebrated this year.The draXter, like all the new XDiavel cruiser bikes, will be at the Motor Bike Expo, on the Ducati stand (Hall 4 Stand 23 C), until Sunday 24 January. In addition to the unprecedented concept bike and XDiavel and XDiavel S factory bikes, visitors will also be able to take a look at the brand's new Cruiser range of accessories and apparel.
Ducati Scrambler unveils three new specials at the Motor Bike Expo of Verona
- The Ducati Scrambler Land of Joy will be at the Verona Motor Bike Expo from 22 to 24 January
- Peace Sixty2, Revolution and Artika: three new Ducati Scrambler proposals that carry the signatures of Italian designers and customizers
- The Ducati Scrambler stand will host a demonstration of the art of personalisation on 23 January
Borgo Panigale, Bologna (Italy), 21 January 2016 – The Land of Joy will be at the Motor Bike Expo from 22 to 24 January with three Ducati Scrambler-based specials. Called Peace Sixty2, Revolution and Artika, these customized bikes will be previewed during the Verona held event on the Ducati Scrambler family stand.Following the Ducati Café Racer Scrambler, the imaginative Verona-based builder Mr. Martini has now come up with his second Scrambler-based creation. This is the Peace Sixty2. Based on the new Sixty2, it has an even “racier” feel than the previous special designed by this builder, largely thanks to its 1960s-style fairing. The plexiglass nose fairing designed by Mr. Martini for this bike (giving prominence to the original headlight), the handlebars, the single-seater tailpiece, the Termignoni exhaust and hand-crafted leather seat all make the Peace Sixty2 something truly unique. Further contributions to its originality also come from a series of details and graphic elements, such as the symbols that recall the concept of peace.With the Peace Sixty2 Mr. Martini also aims to express a state of mind. Indeed, the idea behind this bike took shape during the recent tragic events in Paris, a city extremely dear to Mr. Martini, where he has showcased his creations at numerous events and exhibitions.Revolution is a Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 that has undergone the full bobber style treatment. This bike is characterised by several elements, all hand-crafted by Officine Mermaid, the same team that previously came up with the Ducati Scrambler Scratch. Specially for the Revolution, this Milan-based builder has come up with a leather rider-only seat as well as new fork yokes and a new plate holder. Dedicated on-tank pin striping nicely offsets the black colour scheme so typical of bobber bikes. The 17’’ front and rear wheels emphasise the bike's custom character. Dario Mastroianni, founder and customizer of Officine Mermaid, named the bike Revolution to highlight just how sweeping the changes to it have been. Low-slung and wicked-looking like any self-respecting bobber, the Ducati Scrambler Revolution is as essential as can be, stripped of everything that's not strictly necessary.Lastly, the Dario Lopez Studio has put its signature to the Ducati Scrambler Artika, a modern take on the Ducati Pantah Ice project of the late 70s, one of the iconic bikes displayed at the Ducati Museum in Borgo Panigale. The latter used to take part in the Ice Trophy, a competition reserved for Ducati Pantah bikes alone. The Ducati Scrambler Artika retains the colour scheme of its yesteryear counterpart: sporting a fluorescent yellow, its vintage graphics offer intriguing nuances of blue. The mechanics, based on the Icon version, take centre-stage thanks to clever old-style highlighting of the essence and shine of the aluminium. Chunky, Pirelli tyres with ice studs make the Ducati Scrambler Artika a bike with a personality as extreme as it is unique.The Verona Motor Bike Expo will be packed with events, especially on Saturday 23 January when visitors to the Ducati Scrambler stand will get the chance to see the art of personalisation in action as customizers go to work on Scrambler fuel tanks.And, thanks to a vast range of accessories designed to give the bike a cool touch of uniqueness, the world of Ducati Scrambler customization is accessible to all. In fact, the Ducati Scrambler stand at the Verona Motor Bike Expo will be showcasing four different bikes customized using only official Scrambler accessories, clearly demonstrating just how much - and how easily - this very special Ducati motorcycle can be made even more special.

What is Black ?
28 September 2015
Note for Editors - This is Black, Ducati storytelling changes shape
It is time to tell a new story for Ducati. The story about to begin is refined, elegant and mysterious. And it is heading towards a new universe,
as yet unexplored by the Company. A universe which will come to life on November 16, the date we will finally unveil all the innovations ready for 2016.
The story begins with a project called “This is Black” and is developed across three different forms of expression: a multimedia installation,
video mapping and two unpublished musical tracks.
The project kicks off locally: as part of the Bologna Design Week (from 30 September to 3 October) and at the international electronic music and digital arts event,
roBOt Festival (Bologna, 7 to 10 October).
A new story to tell, which can be followed on the www.ducati.com website and on our social channels: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Fans can join the conversation regarding the new story using the #xducati hashtag.
