One of the prototypes for the Ducati Project 0803 muscle bike has been crashed while testing in Italy.
Believe it or not, it doesn’t appear as if the test rider crashed due to the incredible girth of the 0803’s 240-section rear tire, but instead was hit by a turning car.
In another note, MCN has reported (and a bunch of people have copied without finding a second source, journalism is alive and well folks) that Ducati plans to call its “fundamental breach of brand trust and honesty” the Ducati Diavel, Bolognese for “devil.” We sincerely hope that’s not the case, that name is nearly as mis-judged as that rear tire.
The Ducati Fundamental Breach is scheduled for an official debut at EICMA in November, but it’ll likely leak just before then.
Thanks for the tip, Matt.
