New spy photos of the the 2012 Ducati 1199 Superbike have surfaced on the interwebs of the radical new Ducati undergoing further road testing. At the same time a new rendering of the bike depicting a hypothetical Valentino Rossi edition has the distinction of looking mighty fine indeed.
Will Ducati make a Valentino Rossi replica edition of the new Ducati 1199 with the oh so revvy Superquadrata powerplant? Pretend you’re the head of marketing at Ducati and decide. If they do (and Ducati News Today still favors another road going Desmosedici this time with 800cc) it could do a lot worse than the rendition shown above.
Whatever the final specifications, Ducati continues to show its mastery of the controlled leak as the company heads towards the official announcement of the 1199 at the EICMA show in Milan this November.
