Except for one flat area along the Po River, the peninsula is a patchwork of mountains and mountain chains. Now, if somebody produced a motorcycle there, you would expect it to suit its environment, wouldn’t you? That’s exactly what Ducati does. With the factory located between the Alps and Apennine mountains, the Multistrada 1200 was bred for that topography. This tour begins in the birthplace of the most infamous of motorcycles - the Ducati - and that is the bike which we will ride. Once underway, we will be busy each day, all day, to make it to places which are, on average, 60 miles apart as the crow flies.
Why does it take so long? Our Ducati transforms mobility into art, rendering time and distance irrelevant, that’s why. On this journey through the heart of Italy you see places like Assisi, Siena and Florence. Devoting a week of our lives to create a team masterpiece of motorised motion, we consider ourselves artists and do not expect anything short of Ducati VIP treatment at the race.
