Sony Ericsson Teams With Ducati For Cell Phone, Rich Dudes In Loveless Marriages Rejoice!

Michael Schumacher Rides Ducati At Valencia, Throws Down Stellar Lap Time

Schumi's got to have one of the busiest retirements we've ever seen. When the seven-time Formula One winner's not testing the 599 GTB on the Nordschleife, or spending time as the consigliere to the Ferrari F1 team, he's apparently having a go at other forms of racing. Like this past weekend when the legend of the… » 11/08/07 9:15am 11/08/07 9:15am

Jalopnik Reviews: 2007 Ducati Superbike 1098

Riding the 1098 away from Southern California Ducati came with a warning. Three busted-up 1098's sat in the repair queue outside the shop.

Hunter S. Thompson on Ducatis and the Cult of Speed

We love motorcycles, but we admit that we will probably never own a Ducati. They, like their four-wheeled bretheren from Ferrari and Lamborghini, make an absolutely glorious noise. But after years of crashing BMX bikes and having managed to flip a quad, we will most likely buy a vintage Britbike to putter down to the… » 8/02/06 3:30pm 8/02/06 3:30pm
