Ducati V4 R and Diavel 1260 S Reveal. The one day event.

On the 14 February 2019 those who visited our store were able to witness in the flesh the upcoming Ducati Panigale V4 R and Ducati Diavel 1260 here within our Ducati Showroom. Since our refurb and official opening in August 2018, it was s a great opportunity to see the latest offerings from Italy and a fresh reason already to talk about us having Ducati. We and visitors also ate plenty of delicious food and complimentary Merlo coffee.

One day only… the Panigale V4 R and Diavel 1260 were on tour.

During the daylight hours, refreshments were available from our in-house cafe, Tony’s Cafe, on behalf of this big announcement. We had muffins, home made sausage rolls, bickies, melting moments, danishes and so much more fun goodies loaded with sugar.

These bikes were here for just for ONE DAY only as they are on tour prior to official release. We saw plenty of folk from open to close and it was a great time entertaining, with bookings made for test rides once our demo’s arrive (Diavel 1260 of course). Test rides on our Panigale V4 S were had during the day.

It was on Valentine’s Day [rather fitting with the colour red] with a chance to fall in love with the latest offerings, prior to their arrival in Australia officially. Plenty of images taken by our in-house photographer and website author, yep, that’s me, below.

To all those who made the effort to drop by, from Mike in sales and the rest of us, thank you. To Ducati Australia, a big thank you to everyone who made this day possible. To Jill in the cafe who was fast on the Merlo Coffee and treats, a special thank you.
