“Passion. Design. Technology. Made in Italy”: Ducati celebrates its values at EICMA fair with Francesco Bagnaia and Enea Bastianini
World Champion Francesco Bagnaia, his new team-mate Enea Bastianini (third in the final standings of the 2022 MotoGP season), “Pecco's” Desmosedici GP22 arrived directly from Valencia, and all the products of the new Ducati range. With these extraordinary ingredients, the Bologna-based manufacturer created the evening event titled “Passion. Design. Technology. Made in Italy.”.
An extraordinary opportunity in a fascinating location, which allowed Ducati to celebrate the magical combination of beauty and technology that makes the company unique in the world, to celebrate the MotoGP Triple Crown and to experience the pleasure of sharing and being together in full Italian style. The event was attended by several guests including institutions, sponsors, partners, licensees and influencers.
The event in Milan represented Francesco Bagnaia's first public appearance as MotoGP World Champion, but also the perfect moment to officially welcome Enea Bastianini to the Ducati Lenovo Team. The event was moderated by the Italian voice of MotoGP par excellence Guido Meda, who after recounting race by race this incredible season, retraced its highlights and then commented on them together with Bagnaia, Bastianini, Ducati Lenovo Team Manager Davide Tardozzi and official tester Michele Pirro.
From today until Sunday 13 November the 79th edition of EICMA fair opens its doors to the public and Ducati is ready to welcome all fans to Hall 15, stand N10. Awaiting them is the Desmosedici GP with which Bagnaia brought the MotoGP World Riders' Title back to Borgo Panigale after 15 years, on whose fairings the signs of the battle in the last race at Valencia are clearly visible. On display alongside the MotoGP is the Panigale V4 R of Alvaro Bautista, who this weekend will stake his chances of also becoming World Champion in WorldSBK, and also the “V21L” prototype, the electric bike with which the Bologna-based manufacturer will participate in next year's FIM MotoE™ World Cup as sole supplier.
The Ducati riders are among the protagonists of the fair, through meetings with the thousands of fans expected at EICMA 2022. On Thursday 10 November it was Ducati Lenovo Team riders Francesco Bagnaia and Enea Bastianini who inaugurated the 'Meet&Greet' sessions, while on Friday 11 November at the stand there will be Luca Marini and Marco Bezzecchi of the Ducati Mooney VR46 Team, whose meeting with fans is scheduled at 3.20 pm.
