Among the latest offerings from motorcycle clothing manufacturers at Carole Nash Motorcycle Live, Ducati will be unveiling two new bikes.

UK biking enthusiasts will get their first look at the new 1198 superbike, as well as the eagerly-anticipated Diavel.

The 1198SP enhances the previous S version by coming equipped with traction control and the Ducati Quick Shift system, allowing rider in motorcycle clothing to enjoy a smoother power curve with better gear changes.

Ohlins rear suspension and a slipper clutch are also included, along with the standard issue forged Marchesini wheels and carbon fibre components.

Little is known about the new Diavel, as the project has been a closely-guarded secret at the Bolognese. However, Ducati is hoping that the bike will turn heads in the same way that the Multistrada did at last year's event.

Carole Nash Motorcycle Live's organisers have now confirmed that a total of 37 of the biggest manufacturers in the motorcycle industry have signed up to the event, which takes place at the NEC between November 27th and December 5th.
