Ducati threw a big party at the top of a Hollywood hotel last Friday night to unveil the incredible 1199 Panigale to the Southern California press and glitterati, including yours truly. The bike is gorgeous in person (more so than in photos). It appeared so even after watching scantily clad, leggy models stroll up and down the runway during a Ducati fashion show that immediately preceded the bike’s Southern California debut. Below are two videos, including (1) a hand-held video I hastily took at the Hollywood event featuring Ducati NA General Manager Dominique Cheraki’s brief interview of Nicky Hayden, and (2) Ducati’s beautifully shot “Checkmate” tribute to the 1199 Panigale.
