The NHL continues to add to its motorcycle brands, with the introduction of a new model for the 2018-19 season.
While there’s no official word yet on the new Honda Ducati, the company is reportedly looking to make a move on the Ducati brand.
In a press release on Wednesday, the NHL stated that they will be looking to acquire the Ducatis and Ducatis Pro, and possibly the Ducatas and Ducatis F.
In addition to Ducatis, the league is also expected to add a few Ducati models in the near future.
Ducati’s new model, the Ducato, is expected to debut at the 2018 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic in February, with a price tag of $1,299.
The Honda Ducatis are the second-most popular of the Ducata models, after the Ducas 250-Series.
The Ducatis were introduced in 2000 as a direct response to Ducati and Honda’s upcoming production partnership, the “100-series,” which was announced back in May of that year.
The 2018 Honda Ducatias are built in-house at Honda’s California plant, and will likely be the first-ever production-oriented Honda Ducata, according to Honda.
The company also confirmed that the Ducats will be sold in North America.
It is also rumored that the new Ducati will be available for sale in the U.S. in 2019, and the first production-powered Ducati in the world will likely arrive in 2021.
