I have travelled extensively across the length and breadth of India, met Ducatisti, felt their passion and know that we will be successful in this country. Ducati will provide the same high standards of service in India as we do everywhere else in the world,”
Ducati also utilised the occasion to launch two new variants of the Scrambler: the Classic which is aimed at those who appreciate attention to detail and 1970s style, while the Full Throttle is designed for those who require a bike for everyday use and one with a distinctive racing style.
