2WheelTuesday visits the Ducati Factory in Italy | 2WheelTuesday.com

From 2wheeltuesday.com

2WheelTuesday visits the birthplace of Ducati motorcycles in Bologna, Italy.

Bologna , Italy is home to all things red. With Ferrari, Lamborgini, Bolognese sauce (red meat pasta sauce), and most importantly Ducati all in the same region you cannot help but notice that this region is all about passion for engines and beautiful styling. How can I forget to mention the excellent food.
Touring the Ducati tour was one of the most amazing motorcycle experiences to date. While waiting outside for our tour guide to appear from the Ducati Factory we could not help but notice the rumbling of several Ducati engines in the background. The beautiful music that these engines make in harmony made the hair on the back of my neck stand up....more here: http://2wheeltuesday.com/2012/04/2wheeltuesday-visits-the-ducati-factory-in-italy/

2012 Ducati Dream Tours

Ducati is gearing-up for the new riding season with "Ducati Dream Tours," the perfect weekend escape that combines the unforgettable experience of visiting the famous Italian motorcycle Factory and Museum with the pleasure of riding a Ducati along the legendary roads that surround Bologna.

The experience starts on Friday with arrival and lunch at the Ducati Factory, before making a guided tour of the famous home and Museum of Ducati motorcycles in Borgo Panigale, Bologna.

From there, leave your luggage with tour staff, collect your pre-selected Ducati motorcycle and depart on a guided-ride through the Apennines of Emilia Romagna known as "Motor Valley". When you arrive at the incredible hotel of "Monte del Re" in Dozza, your luggage will already be there, leaving you to just check-in and relax before dinner.

The beautiful hotel, created from a classic thirteenth century monastery and famous for its regional cuisine, will become your idyllic base for the weekend and point-of-departure for Saturday's guided-ride into the mountains along roads recommended by the official Ducati test riders themselves. After stopping for lunch in the countryside, even a leisurely ride back to the hotel on your Ducati will deliver you early enough for a spot of relaxation before dinner in the friendly atmosphere of Ducati Dream Tour friends...more

Ducati's Gabriele Del Torchio: "Rossi lacked the C factor"

From www.twowheelsblog.com

President of Ducati Motor Holding Gabriele Del Torchio was at the Bologna Motor Show today to present the 1199 Panigale and in the usual press conference the Italian manager touched several bases, including the fact that 2011 has been the company’s best year for sales with an increase of over 30%, with North America being their best market followed by Italy and Germany and expects 2012 to be even better, despite a very lagging domestic market (and you can bet it is going to get even worse ).
Del Torchio also talked about Ducati’s GP team and Valentino Rossi commenting that Rossi lacked a bit of luck - actually, he said Rossi lacked “il fattore C” - which in Italian slang means “culo” or ass - and is an idiomatic expression meaning luck....more
