Each radar has a compact dimension and weighs just 190 grams, and integrates to the bike seamlessly.

The radar positioned in the front of the vehicle controls the operation of the ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control), which by means of controlled braking and acceleration automatically adjusts the distance (selectable on four levels) from other vehicles when riding at a speed between 30 and 160 kmph. The rider can maintain constant control of the bike in any situation and for this, the authority of the system in terms of acceleration and deceleration has been limited.

The rear radar is able to detect and report vehicles positioned in a way to detect vehicles in the bike's blind spot, signalling to the rider if such a vehicle is approaching at high speeds.

Ducati states that the radar technology will offer unmatched safety to the rider and can possibly prevent accidents.

Powering the bike itself is a light and compact V4 engine which has been specifically designed to meet touring needs. Further details related to this engine will be officially revealed on October 15.
