Francesco Milicia, Ducati VP Global Sales and After Sales

"Ducati has never been so strong and appreciated in the world: in the first nine months of the year we stabilised our results in the main markets thanks to a range of sophisticated and highly technological products. Added to this is the offer of limited, prestigious and unique models such as the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini and the Panigale V4 2022 World Champion Replica, which had incredible success among our enthusiasts", said Francesco Milicia, Ducati VP Global Sales and After Sales.

"Due to a complex market situation, we are currently experiencing a drop in sales in China, a country where Ducati is much loved and where we have a wonderful community of enthusiasts. We have already developed a comprehensive action plan that takes into account the specific situation and we'll keep monitoring closely the market, with the goal of bringing it back to its results of the past," he added.
