    Ducati to open first showroom in Mumbai in Summer


    Italian bike maker Ducati Motor Holding will open its first showroom in Mumbai in the summer.

    "We want to have one showroom in every metro," Precision Motor CEO Ashish Chordia told reporters. Precision Motor is the distributor of Ducati in India.

    After Mumbai, showrooms would come up in Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Bangalore in the next twelve months, he said.

    In 2008, Ducati sold 45,000 bikes globally and it has been a good year for it, Ducati's CEO and President Gabriele Del Torchio said.

    "India will not be a major market for Ducati now. But it will be five years from now," he said.

                    ^^^ obviously, we were just being sarcastic.. as well as over excited.. to know that the Ducati will have their official showroom in MUMBAI.

                      Test RIDE? Well, Ducati had set up a target of 50 units for 2008.

                      last time I heard, only about only 22 units were sold of Ducati ...

                      22 ... I think I can count that on my hands.

                        I believe even "22" units of a motorbike that costs between 15 and 25 lakhs is a decent enough number!

                          Well i guess people would prefer Honda superbikes to Ducati. When will Honda get the CBR?

                            great news. forget test rides... window shopping would be great.

                            @busa: right said. cbr 'honda' and r1 'yamaha' are more popular and italian beasts are far more alien, atleast to buy. but they said 5 years from now. things might change.
                            BIKER ...the thrill and sense of self-fulfilment is obtained from living a little dangerously!
