2020 Ducati Streetfighter V4
If not one of the most anticipated models, the Streetfighter V4 certainly is the most tease model. With rumors surfacing as early as February 2019 and the first naked V4 spotted in May following by a series of teasers and highly-publicized tryouts, the Streetfighter was a long time coming.
Finally, the model in production form showed up on the Ducati stage during the event. The hypernaked uses the same 1,103cc V4 introduced in the Panigale two years ago. Power is rated at 208 horsepower and 90.4 lb-ft of torque. The funkiest part about these numbers is that all that power propels a bike that weighs 397 lb (dry, but still). That’s some delicious power-to-weight ratio for you right there.
In addition to the engine, the new V4 borrows from the Pani the same suite of electronic assists and techs. Though the base is similar to its fully-faire counterpart, the Streetfighter has a look of its own with a design apparently inspired by The Joker.
2020 Ducati Panigale V2
Despite rumors of a half-a-V4 engine coming to Ducati’s, the baby Panigale that was spotted earlier in 2019 prompted a number of sources to suggest the engine was an upgraded iteration of the existing 959 instead. That’s not what Ducati had in mind.
True enough, the half-a-V4 mill we initially anticipated showed up in the metal in Rimini. The firm introduced the Panigale V2 as a more user-friendly version of the famous sportbike, one that’s easy to commute on. Wadda you know, a Ducati for the masses? The Panigale V2 uses a 955cc engine rated at a respectable 155 horsepower and 76.7 lb-ft of torque. Look-wise, the model pretty much is a slightly downsized Panigale, tipping the scales at 388 lb.
2020 Ducati Multistrada 1260 Grand Tour
Ducati is pushing its Multistrada envelope. After unveiling the new Multistrada 1260 and Multistrada Enduro, the company adds yet another version of the model to its lineup: the new Multistrada 1260 Grand Tour. Which Multi is right for you? It all comes down to what aspect of the model’s personality you want to take advantage of.
While the Enduro trim level takes the Multistrada’s adventure capability to new heights, the Grand Tour banks instead on the model’s touring abilities. The package adds a pair of sidecases (rather than panniers) as well as a touring-friendly saddle, heated grips, tire pressure monitoring, center stand, auxiliary lighting, a keyless fuel cap as well as a model-specific matte livery.
Underlying the Grand Tour is the same 1,262cc Testastretta DVT engine as the rest of the 1260 lineup.
2020 Ducati Scrambler Icon Dark
Ducati adds another iteration of its Scrambler 800 to the family for 2020. This time, the Icon is going black. The new Scrambler Icon Dark takes the Joyvolution’s peppy Icon and swaps its colorful orange or yellow livery for a matte black one.
The inners are exactly the same as the ones we’re already familiar with on the regular Icon including the 803cc L-twin mill and the Kabaya suspension. The Icon Dark’s most interesting feature is its price point, slotting in £700 under the regular Icon. U.S. pricing and availability has yet to be announced.
2020 Ducati Monster 1200 S And Diavel 1260 Color Range
The Italian firm announced new colors for two of its most famous models; the Monster 1200 S and the Diavel 1260. The models themselves are carried over without any changes but new liveries will be available in the new model-year.
For 2020, the Monster 1200 S will be available in your choice of either the classic Ducati Red scheme or in the newly introduced Black on Black livery. As the name suggests, this is pretty much a blacked-out version of the Monster with contrasting red accents, including one of the y-spokes on the front and back wheel.
For the Diavel 1260, the 2020 model will be available in a choice of two colors: Dark Stealth and Ducati Red, of course.
Ducati Scrambler Motard And Desert X Concepts
After introducing the Scrambler Icon Dark, Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali candidly discussed Ducati’s future plans in the Scrambler lineup. While everything new for 2020 has seemingly been unveiled, the Maestro discussed two upcoming concepts we’re very excited to see.
The Scrambler Motard and Desert X concepts build on what the model has to offer and take things a step further. In the case of the Motard, the concept will be based on the Scrambler 800 and give the model a more enduro slash flat track-inspired look with the high set exhaust and a jacked-up suspension.
The Desert X is an homage to the Paris-Dakar-winning Cagiva Elefant from the early 90s, giving the Scrambler a bit of adventure flair. This concept will be based on the Scrambler 1100 and should it ever make it to production, this could become a great entry-level model into the Ducati ADV lineup.
