Now that the seven Ducati
Globetrotters 90th have been selected, the round-the-world trip is ready to
retrace the most significant stages of the 90 years of history belonging to
Ducati. Over 30,000 kilometres await the seven “torchbearers” split into a
relay race as they step in to replace each other on the Multistrada 1200
Enduro, recording the places and people that have built the brand’s history in
an online diary at www.globetrotter90.ducati.com.
The Indian who has been
selected, Vir Nakai will leave on July 4, 2016, exactly 90 years after Ducati
was founded, starting out from the Borgo Panigale factory. Having taken part in
the World Ducati Week, the major gathering taking place from July 1 – 3 at the
Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli”, a parade of motorcycles from the DOC’s
(Ducati Owners Clubs, the heart of the Ducati Community), will escort him from
Misano to Bologna to officially start this extraordinary adventure.
The seven riders, with their
characteristic globetrotter attitude, will respectively undertake the seven
different legs of this round-the-world trip on a Multistrada 1200 Enduro. A
relay across 3 continents, passing from one to another will be a specially
designed “torch” created by the Ducati Design Center to symbolically spread the
fire of passion around the globe, the passion that burns and fuels the spirit
It was by no means a simple task selecting the
finalists. Choosing the "magnificent seven" was a very methodical
operation, which began in April with an online "casting" on the
Ducati website. Regardless of gender, amateur or professional, or the nationality,
enrolment was open to everyone.
