    Well folks, its time for Ducati to begin unveiling their new/revised bikes (to the dealers at least) and to make their announcement regarding participation in AMA Superbike competition. The annual Ducati Dealers meeting will be held at MMP this year (http://www.millermotorsportspark.com/calendar.cfm?fuseaction=ViewEventDetails&EvnetID=188) and, since the track is booked, it looks like they're planning a lot more than just a boardroom meeting. Too bad the event isn't open to spectators!!

    Other items to be discussed are a new Monster (S2R 1000) that we KNOW will be out and the bigger news, a possible new Superbike!

    Guess we'll just have to see on what news leaks its way out this week.
  2. The S2R 1000 has been available all year as a 2006 model. There have been persistent rumors of a 1200cc superbike, though. Supposedly it will be more derivative of the 916 style than the 999. Personally, I think the 999 styling is more up-to-date than the former, but there's no accounting for taste.

    Wouldn't it be fun to be a fly on the wall at that meeting?

  3. Ducati rumors persist. Here's a concept picture that I found on the 'net.

    The first one looks more believeable and the second one is completely photo-chopped. Silly as it may be I like the heel guards of the first one.
  7. According to the rumors the second picture is closer to reality, but not the actual bike. I posted both just because I like spreading rumors. :angel:
