Mr Chandra was previously heading sales for Ducati India.
Italian motorcycle maker Ducati today has announced an important change in its management structure. As part of the change, Mr Bipul Chandra (erstwhile Sales Director of Ducati India) will now succeed Mr Sergi Canovas as the new Managing Director for the marque's India operations. The decision comes after Mr Canovas' move to an international role. Mr Chandra's new responsibilities include spearheading Ducati’s business growth & network expansion in the country.
Sharing his thoughts on the new role, Mr Bipul Chandra said, 'It’s an honour to be associated with a leading global superbike manufacturer. It was an absolute pleasure working with the India team and I look forward to newer challenges in my role as the Managing Director for Ducati in India.'
Prior to Ducati, Mr Chandra has been associated with the growth & expansion operations of numerous high-profile brands like Tata Motors, Bajaj Auto & Ashok Leyland.
Ducati Motor, just a few days back, revealed the Ducati Superleggera V4 - the lightest & most powerful Ducati motorcycle ever made. Powered by an SBK-spec 998cc V4 motor from the V4 R, the Superleggera V4 produces 221bhp whilst being 16kg lighter than the standard Panigale V4.
