Ducati has started to reveal its 2013 range at the Intermot International Motorcycle Show in Cologne, Germany, displaying new colours in the Diavel and Superbike families and, as the famous naked icon now celebrates 20 years of production, special Anniversary versions of the Monster 696, 796 and 1100EVO. The recently released 2013 Ducati Multistrada 1200 also made its first-ever public appearance, as did the brand new 1199 Panigale RS13, which is now ready to make its debut in the World Superbike series next year. Company CEO, Gabriele Del Torchio, and General Manager, Claudio Domenicali addressed the world’s motorcycle press during a special conference held on the Italian manufacturer’s stand at the massive biennial event.
The innovative Ducati Diavel, which has become one of Ducati’s most
desired models, rolls into 2013 with an exciting line-up that sees the
flagship Diavel Carbon now exclusively in carbon red and the standard
Diavel in three stunning new colour versions. The Diavel Dark in matte
black with black-finished components and two “street-sport” schemes that
introduce metallic blue or Ducati red with stylish white stripes, white
wheels and special defining features.
The 2013 Ducati Superbike family introduces arctic white versions of
the exciting 1199 Panigale and 1199 Panigale S alongside the signature
Ducati red, while the 1199 Panigale S Tricolore continues proudly as the
flagship of the family. The highly successful 848EVO is available in
