With a successful 2010 coming to a close and lots of excitement on the horizon for 2011; Ducati has chosen the Long Beach event to showcase everything new across several of the brand’s core competencies.
The 2011 Ducati Diavel and Diavel Carbon will take center stage throughout the weekend for the public to experience firsthand. Without a doubt the most talked about bike of the season, the Diavel promises to be the hit of the show. Also making their first Long Beach IMS appearance will be the 848EVO and 1198SP Superbikes, as well as the middleweight Monster 796 and Pikes Peak winning Multistrada 1200 S.
With the 2011 MotoGP racing season approaching, Ducati is excited to have World Champion and Ducati MotoGP team pilot Nicky Hayden at the show to meet fans and sign autographs. Hayden will be in the “Ducati Caffe” corner of the Ducati booth on Friday from 4:30-5:30pm. Fans are encouraged to stop by for an autograph and wish Nicky luck for the upcoming season.
Long Beach will also be the location of the 2011 Ducati apparel collection’s North American debut. The new line of technical and lifestyle clothing has something for everyone, and will be shown off via a live fashion show within the Ducati booth. Times for the show are Friday at 4:15pm, and Saturday at 12:00 and 2:45pm.
