The Borgo Panigale Bikes Into Motocross Signals A New Chapter For Ducati
Experience the Ducati Borgo Panigale bikes entry into motocross yourself now
The Bologna based manufacturer, Ducati, has been working for two years on a prototype that will make its debut next season in the Italian Motocross Championship, with the aim of validating the technical solutions made on the bike on the track and this marks a historic new chapter for the brand.
This strategy confirms the approach that distinguishes Ducati in the development of its sportiest and most high-performance models, i.e. starting from racing competition and then creating series products capable of exceptional performance for the delight of its enthusiasts.
Moreover, this is a multi-year project that will see the creation of a complete range of off-road engines and motorcycles. The models will gradually become part of a family of knobby motorcycles branded Ducati, starting with motocross. This also expands the brand’s presence on a global scale.
While this is surely a good move for the manufacturer in many regards the main focus of the Ducati off-road project is a combination of the search for lightness pushed to the extreme, top-of-the-line components and engines characterized by a very broad power delivery curve.
On top of that, the latter is obtained thanks to the use of the Desmodromic system, used on all the sports bikes of the Bologna based company starting from MotoGP. Ducati is in fact the only company in the world that uses the same valve return system on its highest performing production motorcycles as it uses on racing prototypes.
Entering the specialist off-road sector represents a very important and challenging strategic choice for Ducati, made possible thanks to the excellent results achieved in recent years. A decision that confirms the desire to expand the brand’s presence into unexplored terrain today.
New young motorcyclists will be able to get close to the Ducati Borgo Panigale brand and thus enter the large community of Ducatisti. Performance is one of the three core values of the brand, together with Style and Sophistication. In Borgo Panigale there are many off-road lovers and we can’t wait to see the Desmo in all its potential at work off the asphalt!
So what do you guys think about this? If you own a Ducati, is this something you are excited to see?
