The biggest-ever World Ducati Week has just closed with 65,000 Ducati fans from all over the world enjoying four days of bikes and getting close to racing stars like Nicky Hayden, Troy Bayliss and Valentino Rossi.
Neil Hodgson was at Misano for MCN to take a look at what World Ducati week is all about.
Smart money superbikes
The 1000cc sports bike class has ripped in two and there are now two
distinct camps. In the 'extreme' corner there's the super-powerful,
electronically-enhanced superbikes, like the Aprilia RSV4, BMW S1000RR,
Ducati Panigale and Kawasaki ZX-10R. Over in the other is the new
Fireblade, GSX-R1000 and R1.

Mercedes SLS AMG & Ducati 1198 SP from a bikers point of view
Ducati's ultimate evolution of the 1198, the SP, takes on the 571bhp
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. MCN Road Tester Michael Neeves takes a look at the
world's most powerful production V8 supercar through the eyes of a biker.
Is it really that fast? Does it compare to the superbike?

Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's
Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill,
Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go
spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC
shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it
running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a
50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic
over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and
explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

McLaren 12C vs Ducati 1199 Panigale S - ultimate supercar vs superbike showdown
It's one-nil to the supercar at Cadwell Park, but can the McLaren 12C
retain four-wheeled honours as it takes on the incredible Ducati 1199
Panigale S? Steve Sutcliffe referees.

The Ducati 1199 Panigale S is a mould-breaking superbike, but how will it
fare against one of our favourite supercars, the McLaren 12C? Will the
McLaren's sheer power and incredible braking power be too much for the
Ducati? Or will the Panigale's epic power to weight ratio rule the day? Our
last supercar vs superbike outing at Cadwell Park saw the Nissan GT-R beat
a Ducati 1098 - will the Panigale level the score this time out?

2014 Ducati Monster 821 Test Ride & Review
After test riding the 1200 I was keen to have a go on the Ducati Monster
821 as soon as it was announced, and I was not disappointed!
It's an awesome machine and the stock Exhaust sounds incredible. If anything I
probably prefer the Monster 821 to the 1200 as far as bang for buck goes.
But of course it comes at a price, not surprisingly for a Ducati. I might
just have to pick one up someday... :)
