Ducati's new Scrambler is the antithesis to the brand's flagship beasts: fun rather than intense, individualized rather than perfected, accessible rather than the stuff of dreams.
Every motorcycle enthusiast dreams of taking off for an epic adventure. It's no surprise, then, that adventure motorcycles are the fastest-growing segment on two wheels. Ducati has clearly tapped into that ethos with the design of the Multistrada GT.
The Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello, a 3.25 mile serpent of asphalt nestled within the Tuscan Appenine Mountains just north of Florence, plays host every year to the Gran Premio d’Italia MotoGP race -- the home race for Ducati Corse. With only one world championship to its name (2007) and zero dry-weather victories during the 2013 season, the Ducati Team had the eyes of a nation following its every move this past weekend at the fastest track on the calendar.
With free reign on development (and deeper pockets) thanks to new ownership, Ducati’s built a lineup that's billed as faster, sexier and more nimble than anything they’ve produced before. After spending a day piloting five models (Multistrada Pikes Peak, Monster, Panigale, Streetfighter and Diavel) through the Catskill Mountains, it became clear that this may be their finest vintage yet, at least for the majority of their models.
Today in gear: an EDC kit for father's day, Ubisoft's Watch Dogs, the Ducati Monster 821, a new skinny lightbulb from Philips, the ultimate app for water activities and Mission Workshops' impressive ultralight jacket.
From every angle, for over twenty years, the Ducati Monster's unmistakably Italian design has simultaneously oozed sex and personified power. This is raw, naked aggression, a motorcycle that defines its very genre and epitomizes an iconic brand.
Limited in production but not in power, the Ducati Panigale 1199 R ($31,000) is a cross between a Navy Seal and Usain Bolt. It's got carbon fiber and titanium for bones, a computer for a brain and a 195-horsepower engine revving to 12,000 rpm for a heart. We took it out for a few days -- after we updated our will.
Rule one of motorcycling is to armor yourself from head to toe with the right gear; style comes second, but when done right, it plays its part in your staying in one piece as well. For that extra bit of protection and tasteful flair, we've gathered five great leather moto jackets for the upcoming riding season and paired each with a like-minded beauty of a bike.
Zero SR Electric Motorcycle Electric cycles are awesome, sure, but some electric cycles are awesomer. Compared to the less balls-out Zero S, the SR boasts a larger, 660-amp motor that spins out 24% more power and 56% more torque — 106 lb-ft, to be exact. That translates to 100+ mph top speeds and a trip...
Ducati 1199 Superleggera If some Uomo came up to us and asked, “Hey-a, you-a wanna my-a Ducati?” we wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to accept the offer, because Ducatis are desire on two wheels. However. If we had our druthers, this here would be the bike for us. Magnesium, carbon fiber and titanium construction make...
They are equal parts simple and complex, a mechanical interpretation of form meeting function with attitude to spare. Whether it's chrome glimmering in the sun, the artful engineering behind a single-sided swingarm or their ability to outrun just about anything, motorcycles are more than just simple transportation. They strangle attention. Ride one down the street and watch as babies point and smile mid-whimper, dogs chase joyfully, angsty teens fight the curling in the corners of their mouths, old biker types in leather nod with supreme comprehension. There are countless combinations of weapons-grade speed, sex, beauty, design and freedom found between two tires, sure -- but these fifty, specifically, are the icons hand-picked by Gear Patrol as our favorites of all time.
Though the riders participating in MotoGP races are the best in the world, it's taken a while for this style of racing to gain traction in the United States. After having the chance to see the MotoGP World Championship at The Circuit of the Americas thanks to Ducati, we easily count ourselves among its growing fan base. Read on to see our photo essay of the insane speed on two wheels.
In the world of thrilling machines, Ducati registers somewhere between Ferrari and Alfa Romeo -- this on two wheels, of course. Offering bikes ranging in price from $10,000-$30,000 and covering a range of "yeah, that makes sense" to "humans aren't supposed to travel that fast", the brand has a legacy and heritage dating back to 1926 that it maintains with pride today. This is especially obvious in the 2013 Ducati Monster 796 ($10,000).
Ducati 750 Super Sport This 1976 Ducati 750 Super Sport was found in a Belgian shed after sitting for 15 years. Harné Heuvelman of the Dutch group Back To Classics restored it to its showroom condition using original components like beautiful Borrani wire rims, Brembo brakes and Marzocchi forks. It’s an absolute stunner, and probably...
Short on space in the garage? Gear Patrol’s new series, “Want This, Get This”, moves into a whole new vein this week, presenting a lust-worthy sportbike along with a more affordable alternative that scratches the same itch. Read on for the dream screamer and its reality-based substitute.
While smartphones and google calendar might have replaced much of the functional need for a physical calendar these days, we’re still nostalgic for the analog. Following in the tradition of our Grandfather’s garage, our pick for 2013’s planner is the Custom Motorcycle Calendar from Bike Exif. What it lacks in Bettie Page pinup curves it...
Ducati motorcycles are the kind of machines that make us sweat, bleed and tear up all at once — and that’s a good thing. The introduction of the king of the Ducati superbikes makes us grovel. The Ducati 1199 Panigale R ($29,995) has assumed the throne, and he’s all business. Not just your standard 1199...
We love a cafe racer bike, especially when said bike is both Ducati and vintage. The JvB-moto Ducati Pantah is just such a beauty. The Pantah’s designer, Jens vom Brauck, wanted his build to look like “it was found in a shed… a futuristic design study for a 1981 motor show” that was never displayed....
Like 40 year-old Highland Park single malt, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO and the stunning Raquel Welch, sometimes what has graced us in the past will always stand apart from whatever newfangled version comes our way. So it is with the 1974 Ducati 750SS Corsa, owned by former bike racer, Carlo Saltarelli. Going up for...
