The Desmo Owners Club in
Mumbai embarked on their first official ride starting from the Ducati
Dealership in Bandra. The club rode through the city to Nariman Point and then
onward to Hard Rock Café, Mumbai at Lower Parel.
For those unaware of the word Desmo,
it is a short for Ducati’s unique and famous Desmodromic valve control, which
in turn is further abbreviated to D.O.C. and represents the heart of the
Italian manufacturer’s loyal and passionate community of owners celebrating
their passion for riding. The D.O.C. is one of the largest official motorcycle communities
in the world with over 200 official clubs and 23,000 registered members.
In India, as around the world,
the club will also welcome non-Ducati owners passionate about the iconic brand.
The Mumbai D.O.C. represents the first in India and the 25th in Asia, where
Ducati’s popularity is growing fast.
Ravi Avalur, Managing
Director, Ducati India said, “The Desmo Owners Club is intended for Ducati
owners but is open also to owners of other brands who are passionate about
Ducati. We’re happy to see this community growing and D.O.C.s beginning to
expand across India.”
Eight D.O.C. Mumbai members
are travelling to the 9th edition of World Ducati Week, at the Misano World
Circuit in Italy next joining D.O.C. members and Ducatisti from around to world
to celebrate Ducati’s 90th anniversary.
Dr. Ashutosh Palep, President
of the Mumbai D.O.C. said: “We are very excited to start the very first Indian Desmo Owners Club in
Mumbai. The club is dedicated to bringing together motorcyclists who share a
passion for Ducati and riding and focuses heavily on safety so that we promote
an enjoyable lifestyle. I look forward to riding with the growing community of
Ducatisti in and around Mumbai!”
