Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A. is a part of a prominent group of world-renowned vehicles. It is a Lamborghini-owned company, through Audi, its parent company, owned by the Volkswagen Group. But even so, Ducati is commonly referred to as the motorcycle world’s version of Ferrari.
The company began turning heads in 1946 when Cucciolo was introduced, a motorcycle with a clip-on engine. Since then, Ducati has grown to become one of the industry’s biggest and most sophisticated names. It’s not surprising that Ducati has successfully competed in World Superbike and MotoGP. Many racers seek out Ducati exhaust systems to enhance their bike’s look and performance.
Ducati has also produced sportbikes with similar racebike DNA, such as the flagship Panigale V4, named after Borgo Panigale, a district in Bologna, Italy, and the ancestral home of the company.
