Ducati opens dealership in Bangalore, Scrambler Urban Enduro launched
One of the more recent two-wheeler manufacturers to enter India, Italian major Ducati has been having a good time so far. The company has been able to find many customers as there are quite a few Ducati fans here in India. Ducati has just opened its first dealership in the southern part of India in the city of Bangalore to make its bikes more accessible for people in the region.
The new dealership is located at UB City on Vittal Mallya road. Becoming the fourth dealership in our country, this showroom is operated and owned by a company called VST. All the motorcycles available in the country are being retailed from the new showroom as well. Servicing of Ducati motorcycles can be carried out at a latest facility located at Victoria Road from the same dealer. The service centre is in line with the Italian company’s international standards.
Ducati has the following bikes on sale:
• Monster 821
• 1299 S
• Diavel range
• Panigale R
What’s new with the new dealership is the fact that the company has also started accepting orders for the recently launched Scrambler Urban Enduro. The new Scrambler has been priced at Rs. 7.90 lakhs (ex-showroom, Bangalore). Other than this bike, Ducati has also started delivering its Multistrada 1200 and 1200S touring range. Powering the Multistrada is the Testastretta DVT engine which adds on the motorcycle’s touring efficiency. Priced at Rs. 14.6 lakhs (ex-showroom, Bangalore), the bike gets various riding modes like Urban, Enduro, Touring and Sport.
Talking about sales, the company has already been able to find more than 100 new customers in Mumbai itself. This is impressive considering the fact that Ducati retails superbikes. Other Ducati showrooms are present in Gurgaon and Delhi. The company will be expanding its dealership network to other cities very soon. In the meantime, the company is focussing on improving its market share in the very potent performance segment of India.
