DUCATI have decided to call its Triumph Tiger beater the 'Cayenne', the same as the pig-ugly Porsche 4x4 SUV thing.

The bike, currently being ‘caught’ out testing on the roads near the factory, is powered by a water-cooled, two-cylinder 1098cc motor the same as is used in the Streetfighter but the power in taken down from 155 to 140bhp.

A 20-litre petrol tank and good riding position should make it popular enough, although the price tag of around £12,000 may put a few people off.

Expect to see it at this year’s big bike shows.
