Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati has announced 18 dates for its UK Roadshow.

The events will take place in Dublin, Winchester, Bristol, Alton, Aylesbury, Preston, Glasgow, Aylesford, Cardiff, Manchester, Newton Flotman, Crawley, South Godstone, Bridgwater, Sheffield, Plymouth, Croydon and Reading from 8 March to 13 July.

Bike enthusiasts will be able to test ride Ducati motorcycles at the events, such as the new 899 Panigale and the Monster 1200, which is expected to be released very soon. Those who are more into sporting and touring bikes will have the opportunity to test the Multistrada and Hyperstrada motorcycles. Although those two bikes will no doubt get the most attention, the Diavel bike is also a machine worth testing. Ducati said that when riders test the Diavel, many of them fall for the motorcycle’s versatility and performance.

Bikers will also be able to visit the Ducati dealership on 12 July and 13 July to test ride the motorcycles.

In addition, pillion riders will also be allowed to join the test rides in order for them to test and appraise the ergonomics of Ducati motorcycles.
Accompanied test drives will last up to an hour and a half, and will cover a variety of roads and conditions. This will give enthusiasts plenty of time to get a feel of the bikes before making a decision to buy one.

Ducati’s event truck and demo fleet has proven to be a popular attraction over the past few years, and now the Roadshow has evolved even further to enhance the customer experience, Ducati says on its website.
