Ducati Launches Five New 2016 Models in Malaysia


Calling for big bike lovers, especially Ducati's die hard fans!!! Next Bike Sdn. Bhd., the sole importer and distributor of Ducati motorcycles in Malaysia has officially launched five new 2016 models to the local market, namely Ducati Superbike 959 Panigale, Ducati Hypermotard 939, Ducati Monster 1200 R, Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro and Ducati XDiavel. Ducati also celebrated its 90th Anniversary at the recent launch event held at EX8, Subang Jaya. The worldwide celebration kicked-off with the symbolic Sala Rossa of the City Hall of Bologna, Italy, followed by the opening of the newly renovated Ducati Museum, a 'Globetrotter 90' motorcycle world tour on the Multistrada 1200 Enduro (one of the bikes being launched here today), a special-edition of the World Ducati Week (WDW) and a dedicated Ducati 90 line of accessories and apparels. 


DUCATI SUPERBIKE 959 PANIGALE (on-the-road (OTR) retail price without insurance with 6% GST is RM99,999.00)

This year, Ducati's 959 Panigale became a larger capacity, even more versatile "Supermid" model. The Ducati Superbike 959 Panigale shares the same innovative stylistic features that characterise its 'bigger brother', the 1299 Panigale - but with an engine designed for a more enjoyable everyday riding experience and more thrills on the race track. The new 955 cm3 twin-cylinder power unit, the first Superquadro to have obtained Euro 4 type-approval, comes with a new stroke length and other innovations that have given rise to an even more impressive torque curve and increased maximum power, now 157 hp at 10.500 rpm. The increased torque and maximum power values do not imply shorter service intervals, therefore, valve clearance inspections are still only required every 24,000 kilometres (15,000 miles).

The 959 Panigale is available in the traditional Ducati red with black wheels or a stunning Arctic White Silk with contrasting red wheels.

DUCATI HYPERMOTARD 939 (on-the-road (OTR) retail price without insurance with 6% GST is RM70,999.00)

The Hypermotard 939, also available in the Hypermotard 939 SP and Hyperstrada 939 versions, renews and confirms the success of the Ducati range that has thrilled the motorcycling world for almost ten years. A unique blend of Desmo power and minimalist style, thanks to a nimble chassis and upright riding position. The Hypermotard 939 family offers pure excitement and an incredible riding experience on any terrain. The new Hypermotard 939's inspiration and design originate in the Supermotard world, with an extra dose of high performance and versatility.

The Hyperstrada 939 is sold only in the Ducati Red tone, but with an elegant grey coloured frame. Designed for riding in non-urban contexts, it comes equipped with 50 litre semi-rigid removable bags and a centre stand. 

DUCATI MONSTER 1200 R (on-the-road (OTR) retail price without insurance with 6% GST is RM139,999.00)

Meet the Monster 1200 R, the most powerful and sophisticated new addition to the Monster family. The new Monster 1200 R has been designed for all those who make sports performance their lifestyle and wish to turn each ride into an adrenaline-packed experience without forgoing the essential, practical appeal of a naked model. Equipped with a 1200 cc Testastretta 11° DS “R” version twin-cylinder engine, the Monster 1200 R takes the Ducati naked sports bike concept to the extreme. Compared to the Monster 1200 S engine, the twin- cylinder “R” version delivers 10% more power and 5.5% more torque. Its 160 hp and 13.4 kgm (97 lb-ft) torque turn the Monster 1200 R into a naked supersport bike able to show its true colours on a race track while making the rider feel perfectly comfortable during daily commutes - thanks to a full-bodied, smooth delivery at low and medium RPM.

The Monster 1200 R is equipped with new suspensions and Öhlins steering damper, and separate rider and passenger footpegs to enhance its racing-inspired riding experience. The new naked sports model by Ducati is even lighter than the S version thanks to the new tailpiece, forged wheels, and carbon fibre components - bringing the total dry weight down to 180 kg (397 lb).
The nose fairing, radiator trim with engraved “R” logo, and the two available colour schemes - Ducati Red and Thrilling Black – give this bike the unmistakable, sophisticated, sport-inspired Ducati touch.



DUCATI MULTISTRADA 1200 ENDURO (on-the-road (OTR) retail price without insurance with 6% GST is RM129,999.00) 

The Multistrada 1200 Enduro completes the multi-bike concept introduced by Ducati in 2010. Born to be unstoppable on any terrain, the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is a full-optional bike designed to satisfy even the most demanding globetrotter. Moreover, this maxi-enduro has specifically been developed and built to handle the stress and strain of off-road riding. Ducati test riders have put the Multistrada 1200 Enduro through its paces under the most extreme riding conditions to ensure reliability in any situation, while maintaining the ride quality and fun one expects from a Ducati.
Thanks to spoked wheels - 19’’ at the front and 17’’ at the rear - the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is perfect for long-distance adventures. Featuring electronic semi-active Sachs suspension (front and rear) and a 30- litre fuel tank, the Multistrada 1200 Enduro is unstoppable on any terrain and has a range that can exceed 450 kilometres (280 miles).

The Multistrada 1200 Enduro comes in three different colours (Ducati Red, Phantom Grey and Star White Silk) and can be personalised with items from the comprehensive Ducati Performance accessory catalogue by Touratech which includes the four Enduro, Touring, Sport and Urban packages.



DUCATI XDIAVEL (on-the-road (OTR) retail price without insurance with 6% GST is RM135,999.00) 

Ducati enters the Cruiser domain and does so in its own inimitable way, presenting a true Cruiser with all the design, technology and performance one expects from a Ducati thoroughbred. Called the XDiavel, it brings together two worlds: the Cruiser world - low speeds, relaxed riding, long journeys and feet forward ergonomics - and the Ducati world, characterised by Italian style, refined engineering and unparalleled performance.

Available also as an S version, the XDiavel features a black-only colour scheme (on the S version the matt black becomes gloss). The bike also has the innovative DRL (Daytime Running Light) at the front, forks with DLC coating, Brembo M50 front brake callipers, a special seat and parts with machine-finished highlights. These include eye-catching alloy wheels and aluminium engine belt covers, given even greater allure thanks to the gloss black paintwork.
