Ducati Strada Aperta spy shots

Ducati fans are waiting for the release of Ducati’s Strada Aperta (name to be confirmed), which will replace the Multistrada this year.
These spy shots give a sketchy idea of the bike, whose release should happen in November.
The Strada Aperta is still heavily camouflaged but the overall style is evident, with a sleek, agressive look and pointed tail in dirt-bike style.

The bike should sport front twin disc brakes, single rear disc, and single-sided swing arm.
There are some classic Ducati features that meet expectations (such as Ohlins suspension), but debate on the engine to be chosen is inconclusive.
A 1,200cc air cooled DS motor was originally reported, but rumours have changed to speculate that the motor will be the liquid-cooled Testastretta from the Ducati Streetfighter.

With the target competitor set to be the BMW R1200GS, Ducati might have some other surprises up its sleeve.
In the gallery is a full set of Strada Aperta spy shots from recent months, from Motociclismo, MCN and Motor.
