2017 Ducati Lineup

Anyone get the email about it recently? Other than the 1299 Superleggera, it all seems pretty fucking underwhelming...

I like the idea of Desert Sled. Finally a Scrambler that you can scramble. It's just that all those hipster marketing videos are so.. stupid...

Though people are complaining about low HP figure, I actually like the Monster 797. Resembling the original 90s Monster with full trellis frame, and they even put a small black side panels near the seat like the old M900-M750. I'd take this Monster to make a "Cafe Fighter" mod.

Multistrada 950 is personally a meh.

Superleggera is cool af but there is no way I can ever afford one. The only "Superleggera" I have is my Bianchi road bicycle from the 80s...

Monster 1200 sounds good with slightly more compact wheel base and other changes, but still too complicated and too powerful (IMHO for this bike). I hope the rumor about Super Scrambler with 1000 - 1100 air-cooled engine is true and that they'll make an air-cooled 1000cc Monster again. It will be like a modern version of S4R and S2R combo.

The owner of the shop i went to in VA owned a 1199 Superleggera. Sick bike to see in person. There must have been a dozen "DO NOT SIT" signs posted on/ around it.

They should have made a swan song Hyper with the diavel motor in it. That would be bonkers !
AS you say, the range looks pretty boring.
That 950 Multi is just plain shite.

They'd be smart to wedge the 1200 into a new Street Fighter model. That bike has a devoted following.
