Matthew Birt: Ducati monitoring Scott Redding's future situation | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Ducati is keeping a close eye on Scott Redding’s MotoGP future, with the British rider’s 2015 plans up in the air.

Redding was expected to be riding a factory Honda RC213V for the Gresini squad next season, having signed a two-year deal with the former 125GP world champion’s Italian-based team.

But Gresini is struggling to finance a deal to lease the RC213V again next season and he has been given a deadline at the British Grand in Silverstone next weekend to confirm his plans to HRC.

The Adriatic by Ducati - Italian Motorcycle Experience (on sale)

The Adriatic by Ducati - Italian Motorcycle Experience (on sale) | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it
Take $1,140 Off! If we had to sum up Italy in one word, "sensual" would fit the bill. From the visual to the olfactory to the tactile, embark on a six day Adriatic adventure designed to tantalize the senses with sexy motorcycles, mouthwatering dishes, and jaw-dropping scenery.

The highlight of the trip is indisputably speeding through smooth backroads on one of the world's most beautiful bikes: the Ducati. Drool over the included 2014 Ducati Monster or upgrade to another 2014 dream bike including the Hyperstrada, Multistrada 1200, and Diavel 1200. But the roar of a clutch isn't the only attraction. During two days of rentals, customize a route with the perfect mix of curves and straightaways for nonstop thrills.

###*"Riding a race bike is an art - a thing that you do because you feel something inside." - Valentino Rossi, 9X World Champion*

Though the options are endless, we recommend heading to San Marino or Bologna for a true taste of Italy. Situated between rolling hills, the cozy town of San Marino can be reached along roads that wind through the mountains and hug the Adriatic's sparkling coastline. On the way to Bologna, take the world-famous Futa pass, considered one of the most spectacular motorcycle routes in Europe. Revel in perfect conditions, challenging curves, and breathtaking views on the way to the Feretti Beach Hotel in Rimini.

This four-star stay doubles as the headquarters for this high-octane escape, so it's no surprise that the excitement doesn't end with parking the bike. During the day, the beachfront is bedecked with bronzed bodies, but nightfall only makes things hotter. A luxurious room featuring elegant decor and plush bedding is just the kind of respite riders need after thrilling days on the road. Of course, no Italian escape would be complete without classic cuisine: keep the tank filled with gourmet breakfasts and dinners that make the tastebuds buzz with ecstasy.

Those who crave an escape that's far more than a mere vacation will find their appetite for excitement sated with six days of sun, speed, and savory fare on the Adriatic coast. The only question: Which will make your mouth water more, a perfect plate of pasta or the purr of a high-performance engine? Either way, che bello.

Not sure how long this sale is for but it's hard to beat this deal for a Ducati riding in Italy vacation...

College student bonds with her dad on a Ducati Monster 696 | Wall Street Journal | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Devonne Duerbaum, 22, a college student from Hollywood, Fla., on her 2009 Ducati Monster 696, as told to A.J. Baime.

My father has been taking me to motorcycle races since I was young, so I grew up around bikes. He always had Ducatis—which are beautifully designed Italian motorcycles. When I turned 16, I wanted one, but he wanted me to wait. Two years later, I graduated high school, took a motorcycle class and got my license. I came home one day and he said, "Hey, let me show you something."
