In case owning a Ducati and donning their apparel is not enough, here's some more products you can buy to show your appreciation for the Borgo Panigale manufacturer. Ducati has just revealed a new range of bicycles, and they appeal to almost anyone, even kids.
Of course, one doesn't necessarily have to be a rider and own a Ducati to get one of these two-wheelers. If you are looking for a new bicycle and want to stand out from the crowd, and possibly enjoy appreciation from other Ducatisti, these bikes may turn out to be a neat choice.

All the bikes are manufactured in collaboration with Bianchi, a legendary Italian maker that has been in the scene since 1885, so we're not talking about "yet another branded bikes."

As distinctive features for the new bikes, Ducati mentions the high-tech integrated in them, the styling and the classic Italian design. These work hand in hand, bringing the two iconic brands closer together and creating a synergy that is coherent with both makers' core values.

MTB, Sport, Junior, Kids and E-bike models are available in the 2016 line-up

Ducati's offer comprises a full range of bikes, from those destined to kids to those addressing serious cyclists who will tackle the forest trails.

We simply loved the kids models because their graphics are heavily inspired by those of the Monster and Hypermotard, two of the long-standing symbols of the Bologna maker. Having the kids astride these bikes creates an interesting precedent, so parents should not be surprised if their children end up buying a Ducati later on.

The Kids models are, obviously, the most affordable, with prices ranging from €169 to €189, followed by the Junior models, €279-309. A Ducati mountain bike can be had for anything between €349 and €899, while the Sport versions will set you back €689 to €769.

As expected, the pedelecs are the most expensive Ducati bicycles, with their prices varying between €2,500 and €2,690. Four models are available, E-400, E-Sport Man, E-Sport lady and E-City, all equipped with 250W Bosch mid-mounted motors and fed by 400 Wh batteries that need 3.5 hours for a full charge.

Ranges vary from 50 to 80 km (31 to 50 miles) in Turbo Mode, and from 140 to 180 km (87-112 miles) in Eco mode, with a Walk Assist function also available. The Lady version has traditional brakes, whereas the rest have hydraulic systems.

No word so far as to whether they will be sold stateside, as Ducati only mentions select dealerships and certain bicycle retailers, namely Alpen, a Bianchi subsidiary.
