Rubén Xaus has been out on the launch of the new Ducati Hypermotard 950 – and he’s proved he’s still got the goods, replicating his iconic one-handed slide from the Hypermotard 1100 launch 12 years ago.

Back in 2007, Rubén Xaus showed the world just what he could do on two wheels, by sliding a Ducati Hypermotard 1100 into a turn, with his knee down and his thumb up in the air. It was an impressive bit of bike control from the ex-WSB and MotoGP racer. And to show that he’s still got the skills, Xaus replicated the snaps on the recent Ducati Hypermotard 950 launch in Gran Canaria. Go on Rubén!
