Ducati's New Superbike Ready To Launch!

For the Ducatista among you, you have your moles, your informants, you know everything there is to know about the new Superbike coming from Ducati.  For everyone else, well the wait is almost over!  We've known for some time that the bike will be an 1199cc V-Twin, it is a completely new design for the engine, no more remenants of the current V-Twin which can trace it's lineage back to the 1970's.  How does 195bhp and 395lbs (wet) grab you?

We also know that the bike will be much more expensive than the current 1198.  In recent years the price difference between the Ducati and it's Japanese rivals has shrunk, but now expect the entry level 1199 to come it at $20,000 U.S. with higher spec version coming in at $25K and close to $30K.

The bike will also have a name.  Where every Ducati Superbike up to this point has been known by it's engine size, 900SS, 851, 888, 916, 955, 998, 999, 1098 and 1198, this one will be known as the 1199 Panigale, as a nod to Ducati's home.

Below you can check out a promo video from Ducati, where you can see Troy Bayliss ripping it up around the Mugello Circuit.

Two Wheel Tuesday Brno WSS Last Lap

The last lap of the World Supersport race from Brno this past weekend was just about one for the ages!  Want to show people why motorcycle racing is SO much better than cage racing, this would be a good place to start.  Maybe not as good the the Assen WSS race last year, but still quite good.

Melissa Paris On The WSS Grid

Most of you will have scene this by now, but felt the need to post it.  Well done to Melissa, who we interviewed a year ago for RumblestripRadio.  It's to bad the lead announcer was a complete D Bag for the whole weekend.
