Prince Harry buys new Ducati bike

by  | 

Prince Harry has reportedly added to his growing bike insurance bill with a shiny new Ducati 848.

Already the owner of trial bikes and a Triumph, the 25-year-old has even had an Italian Tricolore sprayed on the new machine, according to the Daily Mail.

Harry and his older brother William are known motorbike enthusiasts.

But Prince William is unlikely to be too envious of his sibling's latest toy, being himself the owner of a Ducati 1198 Superbike.

Last year, the two princes took part in a 1,000-mile motorbike charity trek across South Africa.

A friend of Prince Harry told the Daily Mail: "Harry loves his motorbikes and has absolutely no fear - which may, or may not, be a good thing! William has been winding him up for months so he was the first person he told about his new 'baby' and he heartily approves.

"Both William and Harry enjoy the anonymity of putting on their leathers and taking to the road.

"No-one knows who they are and in the biking world people just treat them as one of the lads, which they love."
