Many manufacturers are doing this now instead of displaying new product at a public motorcycle show. The negative is that consumers don't get to compare one brand against others in the same setting.

Good point. I suppose no test rides? Even Dallas can be pretty cold, muchless KC and Denver.

I'll admit that have little interest for most of the other models. Now if they put that V2 Panigale engine in an SS, for sure.

This is probably a cheaper option to get to the Duc riders. Those Cycle World shows cost quite a bit for the displays and overhead costs. This cuts the costs substantially and directly reaches the customer base.

I'd only show up if I could ride them. Triumph used to take the truck here once a year, you could ride all the models. I wouldn't want to own a V4 Duc but I'd sure like to ride one.

I'm only 2 hrs from Detroit so I may cross the boarder and have a look but it would be nice to ride them...

Still a nice little private Ducati show is always fun time
