Ducati 2010 New Models – What We Know

On November 9th Ducati will reveal details of it’s 2010 model range to the press prior to the public unveiling at the EICMA show in Milan which commences the following day. Ducati promises some surprises are in store to go along with other models that have either been already signaled or subject to intense speculation. In a series of  posts Ducati News Today will outline what to expect at the show based on What is Known, a round-up of the Rumors and finally a Wish list.

First up, What we know.

ABS seems poised to go mainstream and Ducati will once again make ABS available next year when a variant of the entry level Ducati 696 will sport new ABS technology. The technology comes with no weight penalty and is tuned for more aggressive riding in keeping with Ducati’s sporty brand positioning. Documents lodged with the California EPA in July confirm that the new model will exist alongside the non-ABS model and the expected premium is expected to be around US$500.

Ducati 1198R

The more astute amongst you may have noticed that the factory Xerox Ducati 1098R’s have 1198R marked on their fairings. Given that the Superbike range now all feature 1198cc engines, it makes sense that the factory will introduce the Ducati 1198R for 2010. With Aprilia and BMW now offering their take on a 180bhp Superbike, Ducati is expected to boost the 1198R to 190bhp.

There is much speculation on the interwebs about the California EPA document filed by Ducati which mentions a Double Seater. A dual seat model doesn’t make any sense and yet Ducati has filed it since the 2008 model year so make of that what you will. Ducati News Today is discounting it for now.

Ducati Hypermotard 1100

The über Hypermotard will benefit from the same kind of design improvements that it’s new little brother has introduced. Specifically the bike will get a power boost and pick-up the revised chassis changes seen on the 796. Consequently the Hypermotard 1100 will likely be lighter and just maybe the Desmodue engine will crack 100bhp for he first time.

With wider handlebars, the Hypermotard 1100 will inherit the structural improvements found in the Hypermotard 796, such as its strengthened and lightened chassis. The HM 1100 is also expected to get an update to its DS motor, but will retain the 1100cc displacement. With this news, it is therefore expected that the 1100 will get an increase in power to further differentiate it from the HM 796.
