Ducati trekker seg fra Superbike-VM

Fra 2011 og fremover, vil ikke Ducati lenger stille med noe fabrikkteam i Superbike-VM og vil begrense sin rolle til fomidling av deler og støtte til private team.

Ducati har deltatt, og dominert, Superbike-VM siden starten i 1988 og har vunnet hele 16 fabrikkmesterskap og 13 individuelle titler.

«This decision is part of a specific strategy made by Ducati, the aim being to further increase technological content in production models that will arrive on the market in the coming years. In order to achieve this objective, the company’s technical resources, until now engaged with the management of the factory Superbike team, will instead be dedicated to the development of the new generation of hypersport bikes, in both their homologated and Superbike race versions,» declared Gabriele Del Torchio, President and CEO of Ducati.
