The Ducati stand proved a popular destination to visitors of EICMA. Amongst the visitors spotted were Andrea Dovizioso, Ayrton Badovini and Carl Fogarty who joined the massive crowds to try the Italian manufacturer’s brand new 2013 motorcycles for size.

Fresh from his MotoGP debut test in Valencia aboard the Desmosedici, 2013 Ducati Team rider, Andrea Dovizioso, visited the impressive Ducati exhibition area and sampled the exciting new Hypermotard SP. The spectacular model presents a technical specification intended for accomplished riders who enjoy a full performance-oriented ride, further enhanced with the DSP combination of ABS and DTC.
