Fancy a quick spin on a nice new 2018 Ducati? Who wouldn't, eh? Well this might be just your chance, because the Bolognan firm is taking its test-ride roadshow around the country, from March 25th in Cardiff. There are 24 dates over the summer, from the Highlands of Scotland down to the south coast of England, plus Ireland and Wales, and all points in between.
The firm's taking all its hot new bikes out for a spin – the new Panigale V4 S headlining of course, plus the Multistrada 1260, 959 Panigale, Multistrada 950, Diavel, and a range of Scramblers too. Experienced guides will lead riders out on a local route, to take in a range of road types, and you can even take a pillion, woo! Local dealership staff will be on hand to give expert technical, sales and service advice on all Ducatis too.
You need a full licence obviously (duh!), and you need to bring your own riding gear along. Bikes are subject to availability (so if we turn up in advance and flip a V4, sorry!) and advance booking is definitely recommended.
