It looks like this is the production-ready 2010 Ducati Stradaperta, Italy's answer to the KTM 990 SMT and the Triumph Tiger. A tall road bike (or an adventure tourer that can't go off-road, whichever floats your boat), the Stradaperta uses the liquid-cooled v-twin from Bologna's superbike range, but it's not currently clear if that's the 1099cc unit from the Ducati Streetfighter, the 1198cc motor from the Ducati 1198 or something with a little twist on that theme. Another picture below.


The most noticeable styling element on this bike are the all-in-one
dirt-style mudguard/air intakes. Can't say we're a huge fan of those or
the otherwise unremarkable looks. We'd take Terblanche's Multistrada
over this thing any day, but the Stradaperta will likely destroy the
air-cooled bike in a straight line. We dig the abbreviated brush guards
and their integrated indicators, but sadly it looks like this bike loses Hypermotard's nifty fold-out mirrors in favor of black plastic bar-mounted ones.

Make sure you check out our Ducati tag page for loads of spy photos,
leaked information and other details. The Stradaperta will officially
be unveiled at EICMA in November.
