The Ducati Roadshow heads to the southwest of England this weekend for the first of 22 dates across the country. Ducati Bristol will host the first date on Saturday before the Ducati UK demo fleet heads further south to Riders of Bridgwater on Sunday.
The Ducati event truck and demonstrator fleet has become a permanent fixture on the Ducati UK events calendar and for 2016 the number of dates has been increased due to customer and dealer demand. The roadshow provides its dealer network with an extended test fleet and experienced road test guides who will map out routes to take in a variety of roads and conditions to fully assess the bikes capabilities. Pillion riders may also join in the test rides for the chance to appraise the ergonomics of these machines.
The demonstrator fleet showcases the majority of the 2016 range including the new 959 Panigale, Hypermotard 939, Monster 1200 R, the stunning XDiavel and the soon to be launched Multistrada 1200 Enduro. All models are subject to availability so it worth checking beforehand and also booking test rides in advance to avoid disappointment.
To take a test ride at any of these events, riders must have a valid motorcycle licence and appropriate clothing and safety gear. Local dealership staff will be on hand to give expert technical, sales and service advice and trained riders will be there to guide all test rides.
