Desmo A’ Go Go
Since January 1st, Ducati has delivered no less than 12,803 motorcycles. This represents a 33% increase YTD. A 2% sales jump and loyal customers have flocked to ride the latest Italian Superbikes. As the 2-wheel division of Lamborghini, CEO Claudio Domenicali says:
The performance in the first months of 2021 is certainly very positive. Motorcycles delivered to customers in the first quarter of the year grew not only compared to 2020, already impacted by Covid, but also compared to 2019. Even more remarkable is the size of the order portfolio (motorcycles to be delivered) at the end of the quarter, which is the best-ever, with an extraordinary 93% growth compared to 2020 and +135% compared to 2019.
Enthusiasts are appreciating the 2021 range and the family of Ducatisti is expanding. The global market situation is positive in the world of two wheels, while the supply and transport sectors are much more complex, with delivery delays and a shortage of various raw materials. This makes it difficult to satisfy all the demand from our passionate customers, but at Ducati, we are strongly motivated to do everything we can to reduce the inconvenience caused by this situation. I want to thank all the women and men who, in Borgo Panigale and in our subsidiaries around the world, are working with great commitment in this period of high seasonality”.
