The tenth edition of the Ducati Riding Experience (DRE) events brings the 1199 Panigale S, the all-new Multistrada 1200 and the Hypermotard for riders who want to refine their riding skills. The 2013 training sessions will also host legendary champion Troy Bayliss for his "Academy" classes on advanced extreme riding techniques.
Riders taking part of the DRE will get the unique chance to race on famous tracks, such as the Mugello and Misano, and get first-class instruction from some of the best guys in the business, Bayliss, Andrew Pitt and Marco Lucchinelli, to name just a few.

The Troy Bayliss Academy has 3 classes: Racing 1, for riders with little or no track experience, Racing 2 for intermediate racers and Master Racing. The 1199 Panigale S introduced to the DRE 2013 will also be equipped with racing kit components for realistic training.

Road-oriented activities classes Basic and Intermediate will get new bikes, as well: the Monster 1100 EVO, Multistrada 1200, the Hypermotard and the Monster 796, the latter being the most tamed beast of all, for all those new to riding.

"Participants are provided with a Ducati motorcycle, instructor, lunch and a welcome kit and those without suitable technical riding gear can simply hire it during the online subscription process" Ducati officials announce.
