For many of us, owning an actual race bike may be next to impossible, but thankfully, Ducati is providing fans of the brand with the next best thing: original parts from competition bikes.
Ducati has officially begun its Memorabilia project which allows fans of the Bologna-based bike manufacturer the chance to purchase certified parts from bikes used in recent years by MotoGP and SBK team riders. The first batch of official Ducati components consists of con-rods, crankshafts, camshafts and pistons, all personally certified by Claudio Domenicali and Gigi Dall’Igna. To enhance their uniqueness and originality further, all parts come complete with a technical description and info on the rider and world championship season.
Memorabilia items can be purchased at the Ducati Store in Borgo Panigale, at Ducati dealerships and, from 2020, also online at www.ducati.com. Each piece is protected in a plexiglass display case and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Availability is limited, making this a not-to-be-missed opportunity for Ducatisti and other bike enthusiasts to become proud desmodromic Memorabilia owners.
