Just got price information on the Ducati bike, but it is going to be the same price as the cars. So that will be quite hefty, since the detail is not so spectacular. But it still will be an eye-catcher in anyone's collection.
By the way, the pictures on the Pocher website are from the real bike, not the model. (They did that with the Aventador also)
The recommended price will be around 650 Euros. Prices are increased for the new models (Huracan and Panigale), new recommended retail is 699 Euros.
Yes, it's expected in the 3rd quarter of 2015. You will almost need 2 pieces, one to show off the details (working brake and clutch levers etc. they claim) and one fully built.I hope a separate engine is an option for Pocher. They did release stand alone engines in the past with the Volvo trucks.
Here a chart to compare sizes to the 1/12 bikes and 1/18 cars:
I don't get how Pocher's giant 1:8 cars and this 1:4 bike can have such awesome detail and fine metal castings, while CMC and even more Exoto charge the same kind of money for their much smaller models (€350 to €500 for the high end CMCs and Exoto 156, even more for their 159 and 246). Looking at the closeup photos of the Ducati (thanks rac3r) the metal parts are very detailed, in spite of the odd shapes, and are accurate down to the beveling on the edges of the fairings.
If only Pocher were to start making 1:8 or 1:12 F1 metal body kits, I'd be all over their products
