of thousands of fans make their way here to this industrial park on the

be strapped to a bicycle and hooked to the rear wheel.

Building Brand Runways
Jul 8, 2009 | Fast Company | by Joel Rubinson. Runways are
relationships your company can create with trading partners and
consumers that make your brands accessible, and give YOU access to
markets and marketing options you otherwise would not have. Ducati
motorcycles' sponsorship and hospitality presence (and winning record)

FT.com / Companies / Retail - Ducati cuts production and salaries
August 11 2009 | Financial Times | By Vincent Boland. Mr Del
Torchio said Ducati’s objective in 2009 was to reduce its inventory –
the stock of motorbikes held at the plant and by dealers – while
production was reduced to about 34,000 bikes. Last year it sold 42,800
bikes.At the same time, the decline in the market for luxury bikes was
allowing Ducati to raise its market share from about 5.5 per cent to
roughly 7 per cent.

Ducati's Motorcycles Face Tough Road
Jun 11, 2003.Wall Street Journal. pg. B.5.E By Nina De Roy.
Today, Ducati has 1,145 employees and produces motorcycles across five
segments: the "monster," the Sport Touring, the Supersport, the
Superbike and the newly launched Multistrada, designed to deal with a
variety of road surfaces and weather conditions. Ducati spends 6% of
revenue on innovation... "Consolidation would be good for the sector,"
says Mr. Minoli, when asked about a possible takeover. "But that need
not entail mergers. Ducati is open to synergies but at the moment we
have no plans to sell."

In many ways neither do the people who drive them. Ducati has made a
good job of targeting younger riders with catchy marketing ploys that
allow Ducati owners to feel part of the action.
