Every year, at the end of October, there’s a special “X” marked on our calendar for the Ducati World Premiere event. The House of Borgo Panigale has been hosting its own lineup event for a few years now, away from the usual motorcycle show time-crunch presentation.
The hour-long, live-streamed presentation lets us in on everything new in Ducati’s lineup for the upcoming year. Milestone bikes such as the Streetfighter and Multistrada 1260 launched during one of these World Premieres.
Despite all the major shows canceled in 2020, Ducati is going ahead with its 2021 World Premiere. Instead of the usual, single-night event hosted in front of an audience, however, the maker turned its lineup event into a five-part web series. Every week, between November 4 and December 2, 2020, a new episode will go live to showcase new and returning models.
Here’s the schedule for all the episodes:
- Episode 1: November 4
- Episode 2: November 11
- Episode 3: November 18
- Episode 4: November 25
- Episode 5: December 2
The real question is: what does Ducati have in store? We already know that the new Multistrada V4 is set to debut on November 4. What else is on the list? We don’t have much to work with as the new V4 engine and Multi have been Ducati’s main attraction over the past few weeks.
Ducati did release a Euro 5-compliant Streetfighter in Europe which suggests some of the bikes on the schedule might be whichever ones that have yet to get their Euro 5 update. Based on spy shots snapped this past summer, we’re expecting a new Monster at some point, so that could also be in the cards. The web series’ teaser includes mountain pass, track, and urban visuals, which casts a pretty wide net. What do you think Ducati will show during its World Premiere series?
