This Rad Ducati Scrambler Custom Is What You Get When You Mix Work And Love

One of the coolest things about the motorcycle industry is the people you meet in it. For most of them, motorcycling isn’t a job, it’s a way of life, and something that they live out even when they clock out. Heath Cofran, who’s a communications pro for gearmaker Alpinestars, is one of the guys, and his Ducati…

2016 Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro: Amazing, But I Can't Think Of A Reason To Buy One

The Ducati Multistrada is an incredible motorcycle. It has superbike power in a package you can ride across the country or race with, equally as good at riding at 10 mph as it is 100. Now Ducati is giving it the dirt treatment, hoping to make the Multistrada 1200 Enduro the perfect all-rounder. And it is! But you…

The 2016 Ducati Hypermotard 939 Is The Best Bike If You Can Only Have One

We got up at dawn, threw the last of our camping gear in bags, and set our sights south down the Big Sur coast. The next hour and a half of my life saw a completely empty Highway 1 and speeds like I’d never ridden before, with only the birds, elephant seals, and whales off the coast to witness us. That was the morning…

The Little Wings On Ducati's MotoGP Bike Might Be Their Secret Weapon

When Ducati first added these little winglets to their MotoGP Desmosedici, there were lots of jokes about “hammerhead sharks” and claims about supposed lift control. But if you listen to riders, it seems they have an entirely different and dastardly purpose—to make it harder for riders who get behind it.

These Changes Are Why You Have To Start Watching MotoGP 

Do you watch MotoGP, the world’s top form of motorcycle racing? If the answer’s no, let me tell you why this coming season will be the best one to start on in many years. All it took was a few rule changes that should make the sport more open and more exciting than it’s been in a while, and since it already kicked…

Ride Review: The 2016 Ducati XDiavel Is A Weird But Intriguing Italian Cruiser 

Ducati’s first attempt at a cruiser, the original Ducati Diavel, was a lot of things—but it just didn’t have what people wanted from a cruiser. While it sold fairly well, Ducati felt like there was more of that XL-sized cruiser segment to be had. The XDiavel is Ducati’s attempt to embrace the cruiser spirit while…

Putting The Biggest Sportbike Motor In The Smallest Motorcycle Is The Best Worst Idea Possible

There is a reason why sportbikes are long, keep a lot of weight over the front, and have front ends that don’t turn a ton and have beefy steering stabilizers: it’s so you don’t kill yourself. But, if you’re going to kill yourself, doing it on a Ducati Panigale-powered Grom is a great way to do it.

The Ducati 'draXter' XDiavel Concept Is A Vicious Nightmare Of A Sport Cruiser

I had two nightmares last night. In one, Ducati’s draXter XDiavel concept was chasing me down a dark, desolate highways and trying to eat me. The other involved losing a bet and being strapped to the draXster with the throttle taped wide open as someone dropped the clutch. I still can’t decide which was scarier.

You've Never Seen A Custom Bike Like This Hello Kitty-Themed Scrambler

The funny thing about custom motorcycles is how often they end up looking so similar. When MotoCorsa, the top selling Ducati dealership in the nation, was asked to be a part of Ducati’s Custom Rumble contest, they wanted to put the “custom” back in custom. Meet the Hello Kitty-themed Scrambler, and boy is it...…

Watch The New Ducati Multistrada Enduro Prove It Can Be A Big Dirt Bike, Too

For the past decade, if you wanted an adventure bike (read: a big bike with big suspension you could sort of ride off road) you pretty much had to decide between the BMW GS and KTM 1190 Adventure. Ducati released their first off-road intended bike last month with the Ducati Multistrada Enduro, but they have a long way…
