When Audi bought Italian motorcycle maker Ducati last April, the motorcycle press speculated the auto maker might release a sportbike under the Audi four ring logo. Now autoevolution is reporting the brand has released design sketches and photos of a clay model of The Audi Motorrad. A concept of French designers Thibault Devauze and his brother Marc Devauze. Clement Couvreur shaped their concept, and according to the report, is powered (or would be powered) by a Desmodromic 850cc L-twin Ducati engine with a dual clutch, but very little else was revealed.
Seems that Audi is metaphorically slapping BMW’s face with an Italian gauntlet. A well crafted, sleek gauntlet.
