Bologna-based brand Ducati is diving into the world of motocross. After two years of intense work behind closed doors, Ducati plans to enter a prototype in the Italian Motocross Championship next year. The goal? To test and confirm the bike's technical innovations in practice. This approach remains true to Ducati's philosophy of first prioritizing racing technologies before creating corresponding production models for the fan community.

Much more than just a bike

But this is just the beginning.  Ducati plans to develop a complete range of off-road engines and motorcycles.  The motocross prototype will be the forerunner of a new series of off-road motorcycles under the Ducati label.  And if you want, you can get a picture of it – there is already a video presenting this prototype.

 

A champion gets in the saddle

A special highlight is the collaboration with nine-time motocross world champion Antonio Cairoli.  Ducati has brought him on board as a test rider for the high-performance project.  Thanks to his impressive speed, talent and experience, Cairoli will play a key role in the further development of the new bike.

 

CEO’s thoughts

Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding, expressed his excitement about the new course, “It is a pleasure to announce Ducati’s steps into the motocross world.  This is new territory for us, where we want to show our skills in the design of lightweight motorcycles equipped with first-class components and top performance.”  He also highlighted the collaboration with Tony Cairoli and how this project will extend the Ducati brand into the off-road world.

Antonio Cairoli was equally enthusiastic, saying, “It is an honor to become part of the Ducati world, a symbol of Italian pride worldwide.  This project is a dream come true for me.”

 

Other collaborations

In addition to Cairoli, Ducati has also brought on board Maddii Racing, an experienced team from the motocross environment.  They will act as the main contact for MX racing activities and plan to participate in the 2024 Italian Motocross Championship.

 

Technical depth

Ducati’s focus for the off-road project is on lightness, premium components and engines with a wide power band.  A key factor here is the Desmodromic system already used on all Ducati sports bikes.

 

Conclusion

For Ducati, this move into the off-road sector represents a strategic and challenging decision, driven by the successes of recent years.  It is an expansion of the brand’s portfolio into previously uncharted territory, with the hope of attracting young motorcycle enthusiasts to the brand.

The values of performance, style and refinement remain at the heart of the brand, and many in Borgo Panigale are avid off-road fans.  It remains exciting to see how the Desmo system will prove itself far from the asphalt.
