Ducati has setup an ‘exhibition within an exhibition’ at the annual Bologna Motorshow, which is currently underway in Bologna, Italy. The exhibition started on December 6th and would be there till December 14th. The Ducati exhibition can be found in the Motor Valley Area (Pavillion 26 of the Bologna Motor Show).
Ducati has put up an exhibition of all the Ducati WSBK models that have proved to be the motorcycles of choice for the winning riders and teams. The path of bikes starts with the first 851 machine and continues to the 1991 851 SP and on to Doug Polen’s 888, which led to Ducati’s first Manufacturers Title. Moving on, the still tasty-looking Ducati 916 designed by none other than Massimo Tamburini would also be a part of the display along with its 1994 WSBK-spec version on which Carl Fogarty won his first World Title.
The other machines like the Ducati 999R and Troy Baylis’s 2007 999 WSBK version would also be on display in addition to the 1198 Factory machine that was ridden to victory by Carlos Checa displaying the manufacturer’s pedigree in the Superbike racing post the new millennia.
