Ducati is motorcycles. Ducati produces racing-inspired motorcycles with unique engine features, innovative designs, advanced engineering and overall technical excellence. Ducati offers a range of the most highly sophisticated and sought-after bikes ever created for the road. Currently Ducati produces motorcycles in distinct market segments which vary in their technical and design features and intended customers: Superbike, Monster, Streetfighter, Hypermotard, Multistrada, SportClassic, Desmosedici RR, and the new Diavel. Ducati motorcycles are sold across the world in more than 60 countries worldwide. From the fastest sport bikes to the meanest Monsters, Ducati turns dreams into reality for even the most demanding riders and fanatical enthusiasts.
Over more than fifty years of superior engineering, competition testing and cutting-edge design, Ducati has built an enduring motorcycle legacy. The uniqueness of the Ducati brand is the result of some very specific technical solutions: the desmodromic engine valve control system the tubular steel trellis frame and the L-twin cylinder engine. Last but not least is the sound; Ducati's engine features come together to make a sound that will identify a Ducati even before it appears.
Ducati is racing. On the track, Ducati has amassed a string of World Superbike Championships unprecedented in the history of motorcycle racing, the most recent of which was claimed in the 2008 season, thanks to the amazing performance of Troy Bayliss, who completed his hat trick of three World Champion titles on the back of a Ducati. The Bologna manufacturer has thus won fifteen of the last eighteen World SBK titles and more individual victories than all its opponents put together. In addition, Ducati made an impressive return to MotoGP in 2003, topped off with Casey Stoner's spectacular World Title secured just four years later in 2007. Ducati is the marque of champions - among them Lucchinelli, Polen, Roche, Hailwood™, Falappa, Corser, Fogarty, Bayliss, Stoner and Capirossi - and a living racing legend for all of its fans.
Ducati is community. You're not alone when you ride a Ducati. Ducati riders, fans and employees worldwide are part of the "world of Ducati." There is a bond that joins Ducatisti, no matter the geographic and linguistic boarders: those with the same passion are part of the same tribe. Ducati is not just a mechanical manufacturing company in the traditional sense -- Sure, Ducati builds motorcycles, but it is also offering its fans events, a look and a lifestyle. The Ducati community expresses itself through its network of Ducati Owners Clubs, through its many events and fairs, its riding school, and the Ducati Owners Club Singapore (http://ducaticlubsg.com/Ducati/Welcome.html) who organises events for owners of Ducati motorcycles.
Ducati is design. Ducati motorcycles aren't just sports engines, they are also the essence of unique Italian style and design. Ducatis are distinctive, functional and striking, and are all created around the twin engine and tubular frame. The lines are clean, the paint work is monochrome and the style is aggressive; attractive and inspiring in their sleek seductive forms. Names like Diana, Darmah, Pantah, Scrambler and Paso have entered the lexicon as exemplars of premium performance and timeless Italian style while contemporary classics such as the Monster and the Multistrada have set new innovative standards and have become benchmarks in their respective classes. The 1299 is a modern masterpiece of motorcycle design and a worthy family member to the 916, still regarded as a classic Ducati icon.
Ducati is history. Ducati is a dream born in Bologna, back in 1926. Since then the company has developed from a small, family run company producing small radio components to an international motorcycle and entertainment brand. Less than 10 years ago, Ducati management decided to invest in a Ducati museum to inform the world about the iconic machines and legendary heroes of Ducati's long and proud history. The museum was opened in 1998 and has become a home-away-from-home for all Ducatisti and a monument to everything that was and is the Ducati brand.
