I put links to the Pocher website in my earlier post about these in General Discussion.

Zero interest in either......

I was hoping for something better than 'another' Lambo.
And bikes? - well...

I was hoping for a non-Lambo, too, but am personally ecstatic about the Ducati. We shall see if there are as many exotic bike fans as exotic car fans. It's a bold step for them.

I was also hoping for something other than another Lambo (unless it was an old one). However, it appears that rather than make a big change in the body they've made upgrades in other areas. Have you seen the pictures of the interior? There appears to be cloth on the doors, textured upholstery, and crazy detail on all the dials and buttons. If this is the stock kit, it is a lot more detailed than the Aventador. To me, these look like photos from the real car, but this is what Pocher has on their web site.

those photos are probably the real car, they'll update with kit photos when it's closer to production.

I love the Huracan but will skip it for a while, I am building the DeAgostini Lambo. The Ducati however may be a pre order for me. I cannot wait for more details to emerge.

from Pocher:
With the inclusion of the 1:4 [20.5 " long] Ducati Panigale 1299S in our catalogue, we offer our customers a new product range, where the traditional Pocher quality is present. We had never reproduced a motorcycle so far and couldn“t have found a better model to do it. The 1:4 Panigale is made of premium metal die-cast and comes ready painted. The kit is easy to build and supplied with detailed instructions. The model consists of more than 600 parts made of an assortment of materials including metal, rubber and premium quality plastic. Most of the parts are simply screwed. Wheels, transmission chain, front and rear suspension, brake and clutch levers are all functional and offer an incomparable level of detail.

Personally looking forward to the Huracan, although their choices of colors seems odd. Pocher should have made it in Arancio Borealis, as that is the signature color of the Huracan. Or even Verde Mantis would have been a better choice.

Don't care if it's green with purple spots.
Boring.

I don't think much builders were waiting for another Lamborghini.
Personally these cars can't turn me on, but the second Lamborghini in a row may even be too much for the fans.
The decision to make a motorcycle may be an interesting one, provided they will not follow the new car product range and produce all of Ducati's top cycles one after another. Commercially I would not if I were in Hornby's shoes, but then again I have no idea what their contracts with Lamborghini and Ducati look like.

DominiqueBeerts I totally agree. I do like the idea of a Ducati, however the next release in the auto line should have maybe been a classic or even a classic sports car. Draw in all types of builders.

I am very frustrated waiting for shipping confirmation for the 1:4 Ducati Panigale kits (to be released first because of higher demand), but Pocher has posted some teaser assembly videos here:

Watched the you tube video of the roller chain installation.........perhaps I'm just nit picking but isn't he installing the retaining clip for the master-link backwards? Shouldn't the closed end of the clip face in the direction of wheel rotation?

Yes. I personally use rivet master links for extra security - maybe I'll install the clip on the inside of the model to hide it! : )
