The Superbike family sees the introduction of the new 1198SP, which enhances the previous 'S' version with the addition of Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Ducati Quick Shift (DQS), Ducati Data Analyser (DDA), Ohlins TTX rear suspension, slipper clutch and aluminum fuel tank. This is on top of the usual Ohlins front suspension, forged Marchesini wheels and lightweight carbon fiber components on the S model.

The 1198 also benefits from equipment enhancements, with DTC, DDA and DQS are all fitted as standard equipment.

The recently released 848 EVO range, boasting 140hp equipped with Brembo Monobloc calipers and steering damper, sees a new paint scheme in stunning arctic white with contrasting red wheels and red frame. The Streetfighter sees aesthetic changes with two new colors of red with red frame and diamond black with black racing frame, while the Monster family welcomes new color schemes and ergonomic updates. The entry-level 696 gets new 43mm Marzocchi forks, 20mm higher handlebars and a new rear subframe designed to accept the user-friendly passenger grab-rail kit and two new color schemes of "dark stealth" and "stone white". The Monster 796 also adopts Marzocchi front suspension. The newest Ducati model is the Diavel (see eurotuner.com News for the original annoncement). It features the latest technology including ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes, a Superbike-derived Testastretta 11 engine and weighs 456lb.
