Are you devastated that you can’t make the trip over to Milan this week for the EICMA exhibition? Worry not; two of the biggest launches of the show will be streamed live on the internet for all to see.
Ducati and Yamaha are set to unveil their new models at exclusive locations on Monday evening with both expected to unveil the latest evolution of their flagship sports bikes.
We’ve known Yamaha would be revealing the latest evolution of the YZF-R1 superbike in Milan since the release of this teaser video in their Cologne media pack. It is perhaps the most anticipated launch of this year’s new bike season and in line with this, Yamaha has secured a prime-time slot for the grand unveiling at 9pm on Monday evening. Watch it live at www.yamaha-we-r1.com.
What Ducati has to unveil isn’t as certain, we know they’ve already reeled off their big showpiece that was the Ducati Scrambler in Cologne but this event, for which the Italian marque has hired out a theatre in Milan, is expected to display something special. Our sources say it’ll be the 1299 Panigale we first got wind of from a Ducati America employee’s social media gaffe.
Ducati’s launch gets underway at 16:00 GMT and live streaming will be available from 16:15 on the video below.
