All this talk about Ducati debuting a muscle bike later this year has had me confused. Why would Ducati enter this market? Nevertheless, the rumors are getting stronger, and are now supported by a purported sketch of the machine that might be introduced in Milan. The referenced “testastretta 11 degree” engine would be the 1198cc unit found in the Multistrada, and the other notations on the sketch would indicate a high performance objective, including a significant lean angle, as well as ride-by-wire and traction control . . . not to mention superbike-style brakes. Will we see this beast in the Fall? The sketch is reportedly sourced from a dealer here in the United States.
