Any Melbourne-based riders hankering after a Ducati 1199 Panigale will be able to get 'up close and personal' with the new Latin stunner at Metro Ducati over May 11-12, 2012.
The Victorian dealership has secured the new model for display purposes over those dates, as part of the bike's pre-release national promotional tour.
You mightn't be able to test ride it, but you can appreciate the 195hp beast's luxurious, flowing lines, while dribbling and making V-twin engine noises under your breath.
Metro Ducati is located at 56 Maroondah Highway, Ringwood, in Melbourne's eastern suburbs. Call (03) 9870 2222 for more information.
