Remember Ayrton Senna? We don’t, because we don’t watch Formula One racing, but Ducati has decided to name a commemorative version of the Panigale after the driver (he died in a tragic crash in 1994).
The Panigale S Senna is only going to be available in Brazil, and in super low quantities (only 161 will be made). Other than the exhaust and paint options, it sounds as if the bike is basically stock anyway, so North American buyers can console themselves by realizing they aren’t missing out on much.
Meanwhile, there’s also a new special edition in the function-over-form end of the motorcycle spectrum. Ural has released a new limited-production sidecar rig, in conjunction with Pendleton Blankets. Yes, you read that right.
Apparently, the Russian motorcycle manufacturer decided a blanket from the US-based company would be the perfect accessory to add to their cowboy-themed 2WD sidecar. Along with the funky blanket, there’s an old-school camping set included on the bike, and a canvas sidecar cover. Louis L’Amour would be so proud.
If you want one, you’d better speak up fast. They’re only making 50 of them, and they’re going for $14,350 in the US (no word on whether they’re coming into Canada).
