Hayden 848 Preview
While it may be Italian, the 2010 Ducati 848 Nicky Hayden Edition’s graphics package has an indisputably American flair. Celebrating the MotoGP Champion’s move to Ducati for the ’09 season, the 848 NHE was introduced on Independence Day at the Red Bull United States Grand Prix at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. One can argue that Hayden was inspired by this red, white and blue show of respect, as he rode to his best year-to-date finish the following day.
Last weekend, in his first Indianapolis Grand Prix as a Ducati rider, American Nicky Hayden posted a season best third place; highlighting a Ducati centric weekend.
While everyone unable to attend saw the Nicky’s third place on TV, Ducati Island was the talk of the track, with countless festivities and revelry taking place. The highlight of the island activities was Ducati MotoGP rider Nicky Hayden receiving the surprise gift of his own personal Nicky Hayden Edition 848.
